The drill you’ll see here, taught by Australian women’s national team coach Mark Barnard, helps hitters understand approach timing. It’s important for hitters to be able to adjust to varying set heights and locations and be at the peak of their jump when contacting the ball. This drill involves a setter and an outside hitter. The coach tosses 3 balls in a row to the setter, who delivers 3 sets at varying tempos and locations.
There is always some aspect of the game that can be improved. For example, timing as an outside hitter is huge, so timing needs to be perfect not just 60-70% of the time, but 100% of the time. Another thing great outside hitters regularly work on are the positions they’re weakest in.
Timing: The first step determines the angle of the approach and is the “locator step.”. The second step is a quick, low step. The third and last step is parallel to the second step and helps load for the jump. Arm swing: Like with a tennis serve, power is generated with hip and shoulder rotation as the hitter swings.
During practice, learn to make adjustments. Usually, an outside hitter will take their first step as the setter is getting the ball in their hands. By doing it that way, where you too early or late? Make the necessary adjustments for the next set. It is all about repetition, making adjustments, and getting familiar with each other as a hitter.

The fact that the position is a “hitter” refers to that the main role is attacking on the front line. The Left Side Hitter, then as you would probably guess, is the one who plays the left side position of the front row. You may also hear this position called the “outside hitter.”
