The 5-1 offense is one of the more complicated schemes to run because it has two sets of skills to teach, one when the setter is in the back row and one when they are in the front row. Nancy Dorsey goes beyond teaching you the technical aspects of building a 5-1 offense. She does a great job explaining the challenges your setter will face, which enables you to address those concerns before confronting them in a game situation.
Coach Dorsey lays out the offense showing you how to teach it. More importantly, she demonstrates organized games to teach players how to execute the 5-1 offense. Through repetitive actions and dealing with "all" situations, a team gets ready for what happens in match play. Coach Dorsey shares several drills that teach players how to run the offense and how to deal with any challenges that arise. She uses game-like situations to help make responses automatic and natural.
Coach Dorsey does an excellent job teaching throughout the presentation, showing different vantage points and anticipating questions and offering possible solutions.
Coach Dorsey, who has had great success running a 5-1 in her volleyball program, shares the knowledge and expertise that will make your attempts at the 5-1 just as successful.
