How can I learn to be a better spiker?

Learning the Wrist Snap

Here's an idea for teaching the wrist snap on spikes. Hand the player a kneepad, then have them go through their approach, including the big high-reaching arm swing. At the height of their jump, have them toss the kneepad over the net, trying to get it as close to the 10' as possible. This helps quite a bit in teaching the snap at the end of the spiking motion.
