How To Make a Volleyball Playbook

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

Study the volleyball offense. Know that the middles should be running a quick attack, what the outsides should be running, the opposite hitter, etc.

Step 2

Cater your playbook to the team you are working with. If your middles are slower, run slower middle attacks. If you have hard-hitting pin hitters, set the ball high to the pins and let them swing away.

Step 3

Don't try to trick the other team. Often, when you try to trick the other team you just end up tricking yourself. Run a straight-forward, powerful offense and over-power the other team.

Step 4

Know your strenghts and weaknesses. Run your offense through the most efficient areas on the court. If your strength is at outside hitter, you should run the majority of your offense through that part of the court.

Step 5

Practice. Practice your plays every day. Know them in and out, so that when you are expected to execute them in a game, you will be ready.

Special Attention

Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.

Make sure that everyone is on the same page. Be sure that your team is familiar with the playbook and your team's strategies so that they know what to expect. Cooperation and communication is key.
