with Rod Walsh, Precision Volleyball Academy Program Director, former setter for the Canadian National Team
Rod Walsh shares some of the strategies he uses to create setters in a clinic that covers hand positioning, ball contact, footwork, setter defense and the mental side of setting.
After discussing techniques for hand contact and posture, Coach Walsh quickly moves to real game applications. Though setter training focuses on both technique and repetition, Walsh always brings the discussion back to how the technique is important in real-game applications.
One of the strengths of the presentation is Coach Walsh's ability to add a level of complexity to a drill to increase the physical and mental demands on the setter. By watching Coach Walsh's drill progression, viewers can easily see how a long-term training program can refine the skills of their own setters.
This presentation offers concepts that are appropriate for all skill levels and can be used with beginning setters as well as elite players.
