Anne Kordes shows you how to organize and run an effective preseason practice. This isnt a clinic that suggests how practice should go. Instead, you are thrust into the middle of Coach Kordes preseason practices and shown what actually happens in her gym.
Disc 1: Coach Kordes breaks down a practice plan that includes weightlifting and video review. The session includes multiple ball control drills as the practices concentrate on individual passing and defense. The team progresses to 6on6 and 5on6 game play, ending with a scrimmage. Drill highlights include:
Ball Control Series Drills feature Lanes Narrow, Lanes Wide, Run Thru Sequence and SidetoSide Short. Mostly player initiated, these drills let the whole team work on ballcontrol skills while coaches travel around the gym monitoring progress and giving feedback.
Digging Technique A large part of this practice focuses on digging technique. After the coaches break down the skill, playerinitiated drills are executed to focus on learning the techniques for digging harddriven balls, balls in front of the player and balls outside of the midline.
6on6 Drills The 6on6 portion is a basic wash format. However, it effectively shows how the coaches interact with the players to improve individual skill during actual play. Too often, coaches leave individual instruction for drill time and dont focus on individual skills during gamelike scrimmages. This section of the presentation shows how to use practice time to improve athletes individual skills.
Disc 2: A variety of skills are featured in this segment including passing, serving and digging. Using a team approach, players execute drills that are designed to focus on one or two skills at a time. Warmup drills keep the players moving at a fast pace as they practice getting to the ball, keeping their posture low and passing to the target. Drill highlights include:
4 v 4 Warmup A warmup drill that trains players to defend lefttoleft attacks, righttoright attacks and pipetopipe attacks. The drill helps to build the foundation of team defense by forcing defenders to communicate and defend in close proximity.
Dig, Set and Cover Drill This drill focuses on covering starts with a live swing from the opposite side. The team digs the ball and then covers the resulting set. The live swingdig gives this drill a gamelike feel, which makes the covering skill more transferable to actual games.
Passing Drills build from individual technique to gamelike serve receive drills with scoring.
Disc 3: The initial focus on Day 3 is technique. Setters work on footwork, hand training, and set placement while middles work on blocking patterns. Coach Kordes and her staff lead the players through ball controlrhythm drills, digging techniques, passing reps and serving speed drills. During the afternoon session, the focus is on competing. Coach Kordes uses speedball as a fun, competitive warmup drill. Team competition continues throughout the afternoon session with 10inaRow, 12 Point Middle Score More Game, and Finish the Set drills. Drill highlights include:
