The athletes will spend 45 minutes to one hour position specific training with her designated coach on court. For the next 30 minutes they will combine with setters and hone timing skills in attacking, blocking and other team related skill situations as well as work on team and tactical skills and apply them potentially in a six on six situations. At the start of the session there will be a lot of emphasize on individual repetition vs game play. These sessions are geared at individual improvement and hard working athletes to take their game to the next level. Team play is not a priority in these sessions.

volleyball PSTEOne of the most difficult positions to play well and correct, but also one of the most rewarding in the game. Good middle blockers are what a team revolves around on offence (scoring and holding the other middle blockers to create one on ones) and defence (blocking).

Coaches at post secondary institutions look to recruit a six-rotation outside hitter…meaning as outside hitter you need to be able to do it all(serve receive, defense and be able to score in the front & back row). As part of PSTE we will cover and teach or solidify the following:

  • Attacking form left side & right side includes – footwork, proper movement, body & proper arm positions
  • Attacking from the back row
  • Attack transition in front row & back row – from defense to offence from serve receive to attack(swing hitting)
  • Attacking options from left side, right side and back row – roll shots, tipping, line shots, cross courts shots, wipe off shots variations
