Digging the Line Shot

Mark Burik Digs a Line Shot at the Waupaca Boatride

Digging the line shot can seem outright impossible at times. Even the most tenacious defenders can look like a statue against great hitters. One of the most important things a beach volleyball defender can do is work on their chase mechanics. Don’t think of this situation as a guess. Think of it as a race. “Can your best high line beat my balance and footwork?”

Get balanced. Initiate your move with a crossover step while allowing your lead foot to pivot in the sand. Be patient. Remember, a late move is better than a wrong move. Good luck and happy digging 😉
