Counter Attack Mechanic

  • Prep is key-  Good ready position out in front – watching for the attackable ball coming at you

  • Do not take a big back swing- meet the ball out in front

  • Accelerate through the ball

  • Finish out in front ready for the next shot to come at you


Speed Up & Counter Attack Drill

  • Players stand straight on to each other at the NVZ

  • Engage in dinking rally and take turns who will speed up the ball

  • Player receiving the speed up must counter attack and stay in the hand battle


Slide Volley Footwork and Body 

  • Slide sideways and turn slightly to accommodate hitting the ball more to the side of you but still in front

  • A ball  to the side can be attacked more aggressively than a ball right at your shoulder


Slide & Volley Drill

  • Players stand at NVZ straight on

  • 1  Player hits volleys at partner’s chest

  • Partner must side slide to create space to hit volley more out to the side

  • Alternate forehand and backhand slide
