Episode 2 features a variety of activities that you can do at home. In speaking with many coaches over the summer and various camps and clinics, and what I have personally seen... our young athletes are having great difficulty in the concept of "moving their feet"...
In every "field-played" sport, from soccer to badminton to basketball to tennis, the primary movement is with the feet.
Volleyball is no different!!... even though we play the balls with our arms and hands and jump in the air... without moving our feet to the ball first, it makes anything after that more difficult.
There are many varieties of footwork and passing drills out there.. I am showing a few in the following video...
the key is to PRACTICE THIS AT HOME... the coaches do not have time in practice time to work on improving your own footwork.. You need to take your own responsibility to do exercises that will improve your quickness, agility and contacts.
Please let me a comment on what your favourite at home drills our... I will add to the "library"...
Enjoy and Dream Big
As many thoughts of volleyball & my many days of playing come up for me these days, I thought I would share some insights with young & old players, coaches alike!!
