Rox Volleyball’s Drill of the Week: Pit Drill
Posted on 25 March 2014
This tip of the week is courtesy of Jacksonville Juniors Volleyball Association's 14-local and 16-local coach and one of Rox Volleyball's talented Sales Rep, Julie Fye. Julie has been coaching for 4 years, 2 of those years with JJVA. Prior to coaching, Julie was a setter for the University of North Florida and Shippenburg University. With indoor season in full swing, she uses the pit drill to make sure her girls are ready for anything that comes their way.
“To me pit drill is one of the best defensive drills to always keep girls ready. If girls played with a mind set that the ball was always coming to them they would always be prepared to react and move to the ball. Pit drill is also really great to teach the girls how to push through and finish a drill/game when they’re mentally and physically tired. Lastly, it helps teach the girls how to keep the court balance.”
