How can I become a better spiker?

Stopping Hitter's Drift

If you have a tendency to drift forward after your hit, putting you into the net far too often, here's an idea: Make your spiking motion against a wall.

Like a field goal kicker getting their steps down in football, turn and make an approach away from the wall. This will give you the proper distance from the wall when you turn back around and make your approach toward the wall again.

A few spectacular crashes into the wall will go a long way toward curing your forward drift, and teach you to go up straight!
