Do you have a good hitting drill?

Air Spikes

Right from the beginning, making a proper approach is the key to becoming a great spiker. So think about making your beginning players, and those players who can't seem to get it together later on, do air spikes everyday as part of their warm up routine.

Have them get back to the 10' line, make their 2 or 3 step approach, depending upon which approach style you prefer, and go through the entire motion, including a high reach and follow through.

Every day, their bodies will begin to develop a muscle memory of the proper execution of the approach, and players will begin to experience more success.
