Beach Volleyball Tutorial: Footwork for Digging the Line Shot


The next piece of footwork we need to go over is called our Defensive Chase footwork. We're going to start from the base and then we’ll show you how it goes into a full play. Watch it here.



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 😉
