When we're creating drills to mimic troublesome situations, we always like to make sure that our athletes are trying their very best. As coaches, we want to create situations that demand the most perfect play out of our athletes. We don't want our players to practice something poorly, so what we are going to do is to create a situation that is designed to break a play down, and our athlete will be the one recovering from that given situation. Follow through on this video and enjoy!
When we're creating drills to mimic troublesome situations, I always like to make sure that the athletes are trying their best. So as a coach, I want to create situations that demand the most perfect plate out of their player. Instead of having them intentionally screw up something where they pass poorly intentionally or shank it on purpose.
I don't want my athletes to practice something poorly. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to create a situation that is designed to break a play down. And my player is supposed to be the one who's recovering from it. If me and AVP professional beach volleyball player Brandon Joyner are working together and we just have the two of us, he's going to face the back of the court and I'm going to bowl him a ball. I'll then yell "turn!" and his job is to react with only one hand.

He's only allowed to use one hand. He can choose right or left, but he needs to make a one handed play and then pass me a perfect ball from there. I will attack him and he'll dig it, then I'll set it, but we create a little bit of chaos where they have to make a one-handed touch. Then we ask our defender or player to recover in a safe way that gets us back into rhythm. Let's see if we can do it.
This is an example that we're going to break the play. And we're going to ask a little bit more because if we're getting a first pass where we had to scramble, we want to make sure that that ball gets forward about six to five feet from the net. If you're playing and practicing, make sure that you're not just touching it, but you're delivering it perfect again. Brandon did a great job of having that awkward first contact that kept the ball alive, but then slowing himself down and lifting that pass, giving himself and me time to react. When you get rushed and freaked out, and you shoot balls -- don't do that. We want to have a long extended contact so that we turn chaos back.
