Gettin' Better -- 40 Tips for Better Outside Hitting & Blocking
with Bond Shymansky,
Georgia Tech Head Volleyball Coach;
2004 ACC Coach of the Year

The common denominator of all great athletes is that they are constantly finding ways to get better and in this DVD, Bond Shymansky shares with you 40 tips to help you improve your blocking and outside hitting. Shymansky begins this presentation with Transition. The "T" position on the floor is the point where the three meter line meets the sideline. This is where players will transition back to each time. Footwork into the attack is left, right, left, staying open to the setter. Arm swing mechanics are important to outside hitters. Being a great shot maker and good arm swing mechanics can make a player a valuable part of the team. Instruction on tip shots demands that players use an open hand and make contact with all five fingers. Good vision allows tippers to tip to the opponents open area of the floor. By executing the same technique, but slowing down the arm swing, players can hit roll shots. The sweep is a shot close to the net that bounces off the opponents block. Another skill is tooling the block which requires vision, swings with the high elbow, and uses the same exchange and good swing mechanics. The high swing, line shot, and extreme angle shots are tools that outside hitters must master. This position requires versatility as players must be able to Pass, Defend, and Block to hitting transition. A one foot takeoff is also demonstrated and enables a player to hit with power. Blocking is also a main technique in becoming the best player you can be. The vision sequence spells out each key for blocking preparation. The sequence is ball-setter-ball-hitter. The key is to read the hitter's tendencies, then apply them in your blocking skill. Hand and footwork mechanics, penetrating the net, keeping the eyes open, coiled position, and strong hands benefit the blocker. This information packed DVD is a must for any serious player looking to take their blocking and outside hitting to a new level! 85 minutes. 2006. DVD.

'Gettin' Better' - 40 Tips for Better Middle Hitting & Blocking
with Bond Shymansky,
Georgia Tech Head Volleyball Coach;
2004 ACC Coach of the Year

Take your middle hitting and blocking to a new level! In Gettin' Better, Gerogia Tech head coach Bond Shymansky shares more than 40 tips to help you improve your middle hitting and blocking play. Intensity, footwork, getting open for a set and always communicating with your setter are keys for middle hitters. Teaching begins with the ready hitting position. The key is a fast exchange in which the wrist and elbow work in unison. Because of active defenders, hitting the ball in different directions is imperative for middle hitters. Directional hits include the left and right back 3-meter shot. The cross body swing, a deceptive skill against blockers at the net, and the basic tip, which includes the shallow and deep tip, are other techniques demonstrated. Techniques for the one-foot take off include the left tempo step and the left-right-left running motion. A middle hitter must have good transition footwork. Dropping the Hammer is another aspect of hitting at the net and is addressed here. Shymansky begins the blocking segment by discussing the vision sequence, which spells out each key for blocking preparation. Hand and footwork mechanics, penetrating the net, keeping the eyes open, coiled position and strong hands benefit the blocker. This incredible DVD is packed with tips and teaching points, and is a valuable tool to your middle hitting success - a must for aspiring volleyball players! 71 minutes. 2006. DVD.

Georgia Tech Head Volleyball Coach;
2004 ACC Coach of the Year

Taking your game to the next level is all about Gettin' Better. In this presentation, Bond Shymansky presents 40 tips that are designed to help you take your game where you want it to go! This presentation deals with two key parts of winning volleyball: Setting and defending. Being great at setting is about being great in your mind, heart and hands. Shymansky shows how proper hand positioning makes your movements tighter, more concise and efficient while allowing for touch and finesse on sets. Shymansky details a number of setting techniques, including the spin set, jump set, back & front one set, one-hand set and the peak-a-boo set. Other skills covered to develop a complete setter include footwork, targeting, attacking and rotating off and on the net. Defending is all about attitude and going after every ball on every play. Defense starts with good, tight body positioning. From a palms up position, the player can create two platforms to deflect the ball. Other teaching points include the drive, 3-meter target, one step extension, floor extension, hands defense, one arm j-stroke and the pancake.
