VBmatch will host a Ball Control & Defense Clinic in San Francisco (Potrero Hill) on Friday, October 19th (7:15pm - 9:15pm).  

There are many players out there who are good hitters and love hitting; but quite often, they are one-dimensional players with an incomplete package of skills.  A good hitter will hardly get to use his/her hitting talent if he/she can't pass the ball (especially in a quads or doubles game).  Without a good pass, the set will likely be imperfect and off the net, increasing the difficulty in timing the hit.  In volleyball, each move sets up the next one.  The hit builds upon the set; the set builds upon the pass.  For this reason, ball control is essential for a good game of volleyball.  Yet ball control is an extremely under-rated / under-valued part of the game -- perhaps because passing / defense is more about finesse and lacks the thunder and showiness of hitting.  

However, if you focus on honing your skills for this non-glamorous part of the game, it will pay dividends in the overall results.  By passing well and defending well, you will get more balls to your setter in the front zone 2-3 feet from the net.  Your setter will be able to give you easier sets to hit (as opposed to leading sets that require the hitter to chase the ball -- the most difficult sets to hit)

IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS CLINIC IS INTENDED FOR INTERMEDIATE PLAYERS.  This is NOT a clinic for Beginners.  This clinic assumes that players already have fundamental skills and several years of playing experience.
