This is Tiffany Anderson, and today we're discussing anticipation drills for volleyball. Well, volleyball's a sport that's very reactive. It's difficult to know from one moment to the next where the ball's actually coming from. So as a defensive team, you'll be watching the offensive team setup. They could be spiking, they could be tipping, or they could just be lobbing the ball over. To do a drill that anticipates this, this one is called the triangle drill. We would actually teach the players to move in 45 degree triangles. One is up to the net for a block, then to the side, perhaps for another block, and then back to get ready for hitting. If you have a defensive player, she's also could be moving in this triangle motion as she moves up, and then to the side, and then back in reaction to what's gonna happen as the ball comes in. Another way to train the mind for reactive play is with a anticipation softball. Now this is not using the volleyball skills, but this is training the mind to move quickly. By just rolling this anticipation softball, your players will be able to get used to reacting quickly to just anything that could happen.
