Repetition is one of the most important aspects to becoming a good volleyball player. Through repetition, one learns the mechanics of the game. It also helps with muscle memory. One does not become a great player without working hard and practicing. The saying goes, “You practice how you play.” Therefore, effective game-like drills must be incorporated into practice. Players must challenge each other as opponents and apply their skills to the drills. The “serve, pass, set, spike, block, defense” sequence should be implemented. You could even break up the sequence to focus on a specific skill during game-like situations, as well. The skills players develop during practice will transfer during a game, which is crucial during Nationals.
