In another video we showed you an easy drill for digging a volleyball using only one hand. Once you have seen that, take a look at this one so you can learn the proper footwork when digging the cutty.

DRILL NAME: Partner Toss, Dig Cut Shot

SKILL FOCUS: Defensive Ball Control




STYLE: Repetition Based

DRILL EXPLANATION: Player 1 and Player 2 will both be on the South side of the court.  Player 1 will be at the starting position for digging a hard angle attack.  Player 2 will be at the net acting as the attacker.  Player 2 will be tossing a “cut shot” for the defender to dig.  Player 1 will use 1 crossover step and a laydown/dive to get to the ball.  Make sure at contact you are lifting your dig to antenna height.  First round should be as if you are digging a left side cut shot then switch to digging a cut shot for the right side.

KEYS: Get stopped

Cross over step

Lay down

Get under and lift dig

COMMON ERRORS:  Common errors for this drill are focusing on the touch before footwork.  Concentrate first on making a positive crossover step and full extension lay down.  Next, When making the dig, dont just touch the ball to touch the ball, lay down and lift each dig.
