One good way to get extra reps for your right-side hitters is to modify standard over-the-net pepper so every set goes to the right instead of the left or middle.
In this cooperative hitting drill, which can be used as a warmup drill or as a skill-builder, Beth Launiere runs 3 v 3 with a hitter, passer and setter on each side of the court. The setter stands at the net, the passer in right back and the hitter in right front.
Play begins with a coach hitting or tossing crosscourt from the other side of the net. The passer passes, the setter sets to Zone 2 and the hitter takes a cross-court swing to the three players on the other side. The rally continues as long as the players can keep it going.
Once a rally is complete, the players can rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise to assume a different role.
A variation is to move the passer to the left side of the court and require the attacker to hit line. This version is still cooperative. If you want to get similar reps for left-side attackers, here’s a good hitting drill from former USA Olympic coach Terry Liskevych.
To make these drills competitive, add markers to the court wherever you want the players to place the ball and award a point every time they hit the target zone.
Obviously, putting a ball down in hitting drills from the right side becomes a lot more difficult with a block. Here are tips from former Texas A&M coach Laura Kuhn on how to use the block as a right-side hitter.
