Teaching Spiking to Beginners with Tod Mattox

6722 ratings | 808940 views
Bishop High School coach Tod Mattox breaks down how to get young volleyball players comfortable with the spiking process. First by arm swing, and then with a 2-step approach called “Flamingo”. Next, he puts it all together with a fun game of “Defenders vs. Hitters,” which has attackers start with a 2-step approach and progress to a 4-step approach.

Volleyball is my favorite sport and I have decided to learn how to play. The problem is that, due to financial issues, I'm not able to get the proper teaching in order to achieve my goal. Is it possible for me to keep getting better by simply the "free" help that the Internet can provide me with?

You are the bomb, Tod Mattox. Played all through middle school, high school, and college- just started coaching middle schoolers and I haven't, for the LIFE of me, been able to remember how I learned the basics! This will be awesome for teaching some of my first timers!! Thank you!

i just started playing volleyball and my team is new too so some of us know how to serve overhand. I know how . to serve overhanded. But I want to learn how the footwork is for spiking because we might start learning how in the end of our season. This video helped me a lot and I definately know that this will help me because how they said right left right left for 4 step approach and for 2 step approach you go right left! But thank you for this video it is really helpful

Your supposed to start you spike approach when the ball is at its highest point.
Cinja G (6 months ago)
That always depends on what speed you are attacking 😂I don’t know how it is in other Countries but here in Germany we call it speed 1 speed 2 and speed 3 You always have to start your approach at a different point in time it just depends on the”speed” of the set
Aubrey Sheppard (1 year ago)
Cailyn Shields u r actually supposed to start your approach when the ball is at the setters hands. You should contact the ball at its highest point so it can go down. I am on a club elite team and that’s what they taught us and now I can hit the ball straight down

Alex _Santoro_23 (2 months ago)
emobitch not at all! If anything the girl coaches are not so good. They only care about winning and the punishments the team gets when they lose. My guy coach for JV is much more understanding to what we can and can’t do and he also helps us understand it’s not about winning so it’s not a big deal if we lose

Dmitriy Vdovin (2 years ago)
I disagree that elbow should go first in swing. This hurts shoulder, makes attacker lose height and power of spike and gives poor ball control on high level of volleyball. From my experience elbow has to stay from the side during spike, approximately on the level of shoulder. I am an ex professional player and several times in my career I had to correct my technique to stop hitting with elbow in front Everything else I agree and it is interesting and useful for me, because I'm going to be volleyball coach and right now I teach new players, most of them have zero knowledge. Thank you for this video
Aubrey Sheppard (1 year ago)
When you throw or hit, your elbow must be in front or the ball wont go down and you will have less accuracy. If u hit the ball behind you, then it will cause shoulder problems. Try hitting the ball in front of u

i started playing volleyball half a year ago and I really didn't get how to jump and then spike until now. nobody could explain it in a way that's understandable for me (I'm a little dumb in this sort of things). now, with the countig of the girls 'right left right left jump' I got it. really a great help for me. thanks a lot.

i had my 7th grade girls try the 2 step approach drill, with the hope of just doing something different would help their approaches, most of them are unable to do the drill. I tell them it's more of a jump than a step, but they end up just charging the net and never turning their hips to the wall

The question I wonder should we start younger kids swinging backrow?
AnimalJam Nation (2 years ago)
I would say when the get used to front row like once they know the foot work and get good hits.. Maybe introduce the back row hitting.. I started back row hitting in 5-6th grade and now I'ma back row hitter for my varsity team. :)
