Volleyball Explained: The Art of the Second Attack


What is the normal system to cover – attack in positon 4 the setter coming, the middle blocker coming, the libero coming. Ok, this is for cover. In Argentina, more in Argentina, because our players have not strong attack every time, not so much power, we need to play different. The second ball of the side-out is very important. What is the second ball? Surely is not the first. The second ball is – the ball is high ball, play every time to the block, cover and attack again. In Argentina 20% of the side-out are played in such situations. 20%. 10 serves – two or more, three balls, take to the block and come back. That’s another possibility. I play a different situation in cover. Cover.
