SEAL AND PENETRATE
Seal the net with your hands, thumbs pointing to the ceiling a balls width apart, and arms locked.
Whenever possible extend your arms across the net (penetration).
Keep your shoulders square to the net.
When you move along the net to block, plant so that you jump straight up and down.
Land in the same place from where you jump.
Seal and be square to the net.
CARRY HANDS HIGH
When moving along the net and when jumping, carry the hands at shoulder height.
JUMP WITH YOUR HITTER
The farther off the net the hitter is hitting the ball, the later the jump.
WATCH THE SHOULDERS
As the hitters shoulders turn, try to move hands into the area.
WATCH HITTER'S HAND
As the hitters hand turns, try to move your hands into the area.
WATCH HITTER'S EYES
Where the hitter is looking is a good indication of where the hit will go.
ANGLE OF APPROACH
Front your hitter.
Blocker needs to move and set the block in the hitters angle of approach.
Watch the setters hands.
Focus on the setters hands BEFORE the ball is set.
