Do you have a good quickness drill?

Over the Shoulder Drill

One of the hardest balls for front row players to hit is the one coming over their shoulder. They need to judge if it's hittable, and then make the necessary adjustments to either hit or block, depending on what they've decided, based on the flight of the ball, their own position at the time, etc.

Have you front row players at the net, but back about 3 feet. Have blockers on the other side, ready to hit or block, as well. Toss a ball from the back row, high enough that it will be a toss-up as to whether it should be hit or blocked.

Have everyone play the ball on both sides, being aggressive at all times.
