Defensive Positions

Systems do not play defense. Players play defense. Read the hitter and make every effort to play every ball.

When a bad set occurs or a hitter shows “tip” by raising his hitting hand up to a ball, defense must adjust to the play intelligently and quickly.

That said, here is what our team’s defense will look like against an opponent with no strategically important tendencies.

Rotational Positions

+Those on the outside in the back row play from the “outside in.”

-Do not let a ball beat you to the line because you will not be able to turn your passing platform back to target!

+Middle-back must protect the deep line.

-Even covering our own hitters against the opponent’s block, middle-back must not crash to the net so far that she cannot reach a block sent high and deep.

+When front row, outsides must block the front row setter’s “dump,” the setter’s tip on second ball.

+Outside hitters will also assist with blocking the middle hitter.

+Opposites will help on all attacks to the in the middle and must always be ready to block the outside hitter.

+Middle Hitters block everything! “Close the block” by getting shoulder-to-shoulder with close to to the right or left-side blocker.

When our setter is in the back row, and the other team is hitting an easy “free ball” to us, our setter will call “FREE!!!” and “release” to her setting position.

The two other back-row players will split the court to cover her absence.

Hitters will drop off the net into their hitting positions.

A good middle blocker may stay at the net to challenge the free ball by blocking before dropping off to hit.
