As a coach, navigating team parents who are new to the club system or volleyball in general can sometimes be challenging and time consuming. That's why it's important to offer resources to help educate parents so they have a basic understanding of the game, how the club system works, competition and tournament protocol, and basic skills and strategies. Watch as Brennan Dean, Club Director at Wave Volleyball Club, provides a thorough introduction to the sport to help ease parents into the system so you can keep your focus on your team's success.
Attacking and offensive systems are a critical part of a team's success, and get more advanced as the level of play increases. Attacks are different based on set tempo and location.
Basic level attacks:
- The Four: To left front. High and lofty.
- The Five: To the right front, high and lofty.
- The Two: High to the middle hitter.
Higher level options include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Go: To the left front attacker, faster set.
- Red: To the right front attacker, faster set.
- Sets to the middle hitters: The "one", the slide, the 32, the "back one".
- Back row attacks: Sets to the back row players behind the 10-foot line.
A common offensive technique is overloading zones, or creating a one-on-one situation for your dominant attacker by loading the other attackers on the other side of the court.
