Arrow Tips on Spiking

  • Right from the beginning, making a proper approach is the key to becoming a great spiker. So think about making your beginning players, and those players who canīt seem to get it together later on, do air spikes everyday as part of their warm up routine.
  • Have them get back to the 10ī line, make their 2 or 3 step approach, depending upon which approach style you prefer, and go through the entire motion, including a high reach and follow through.
  • Every day, their bodies will begin to develop a muscle memory of the proper execution of the approach, and players will begin to experience more success.

Also
- Before spiking the ball look at where you plan on hitting the ball (look for gaps or pick out weaker players)
-Watch the ball from the time it leaves the setters hands to the time you make contact with it.
-Vary you style, don't always hit to the same place with the same strength, keep the other team guessing.
-If the ball isnt in the right position to spike it dont try to spike it, it will just end up in the net or out of the court if you try, instead just set it or dig it to the back corners of the court.

i have found that timing is all that is needed for the perfect spike, depending on whether you hit from outside or through middle.
- if from middle the player should approach when the ball is 30cm before it hits the setters hands. (quick attack)
-if from outside or round the back as the ball makes contact with the setters hands.

i don't know much about spiking, but the stomach muscles seem to be the most important for power and good form.

A good spiker must have a perfect timing.

Definitely timing is key, I actually like a medium height set ball which forces me to react quickly and not wait on the ball...

-Quick arm swing
-Using your core (abs) will help dgenerate some speed on the ball
-Use your arms for upward momentum, helps alot

Thank you for sharing your tips. It's a big help for me because lately I am feeling hopeless and getting depressed. I will follow your tips.

I found this also very important:
- anticipate blockers movement before hitting the ball.
