How can I become a better digger?

Team-on-3 Digging Drill

This drill is designed to help back row players learn to read and react to hitters.

Have 3 back row players in their normal defensive positions (which usually includes having your setter in Right Back).

We set up 3 hitting lines on the other side of the net, and the coach tosses ball rather quickly to a setter. The setter then sets whoever they want, trying not to be predictable.

The 3 defensive players then must react and try to pop the ball up. It's a quick game, getting back row players lots of reads and touches, and is a great way to increase defensive toughness.
