Position Specific Training – Libero / DS

The Libero position in today’s volleyball game has evolved into one of the most critical positions and deserves its own development opportunity.

The libero position is often called “the specialist in reception and in defense”.

The libero enjoys “a special freedom” on the court, as they can continually go in and out of the field, usually substituting the center player or anyone else who is in a defensive position by rotation. The main goal of this substitute is for the libero to enter and “cover better” the zones where a supposed attack (or serve) would go. Counting on the libero, the team can boost and improve their performance and efficiency in reception.

Actually, the word “libero” means “free” in Italian – free to move around and to save the ball. When the ball is not in play, the libero can replace any back-row player, without prior notice to the officials.

Libero and DS (defensive specialist) specific skills we will focus on are:

  • Serve receive – platform, angles, passing midline & outside body, anticipation of flight path of ball, passing float vs. spin serve
  • Defensive reading around the Block(single, double, closed or seem) recognition of attacker and her arm swing
  • Setting second ball situation (from the back room and the front row)
