All Volleyball Players Should Be Good at Peppering

January 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 126

I always say to my players that I have never met a good volleyball player that is bad at peppering. The best volleyball players in the world are really good at it. It is essential that players understand that they must become great at peppeing. I wish I had a dime for the amount of times that I have players putting minimal effort into the pepper and really just are not good at it. Though not a real volleyball rule, I believe that knowing how to pepper is definitely one of the unwritten volleyball rules.

Use your time wisely and invest much of it into peppering. Have them do variations and different types of act ivies to get them better at it. In this article, I am going to point a few things that players can do to become better at peppering.

Tip Peppering

Start off the players with tipping instead of actually spiking the ball. This way they will start with some control in the pepper. In my experience, most girls cannot control the ball because the spike is usually out of control or one player is consistently hitting the ball too hard. Have them start off with easy tips then work to aggressive tips. They should always be sure that they control the tip and allow the other player to dog the ball.

Quick Pepper

This is how I warm-up my liberos before volleyball matches. Have the players stand very close to each other and pepper as fast as they can. Quick pepper literally means a quick bump, a quick set, and a quick spike. If done correctly and under control, this warm up gets them much better at peppering and also gets them ready for the game. Players should practice this drill often and it will certainly help in increasing their reaction times.

Far Away Pepper

In my opinion this is the most difficult way to pepper. Have each partner stand on opposite sidelines facing each other. Tell them to begin peppering. The goal here is to get them to pass the ball long, hit the ball long, and set the ball long. This drill is outstanding for getting players to control their spikes. This is obviously very important.

Keep on Eye On...

When peppering there are few things that you should be conscious of. To begin with, make sure that you are always in the athletic position. A player should never be standing straight up. Be very careful to stay on the toes, not flat footed. Another important thing is for the players to constantly be moving. Once they stop moving, they will get stuck and will not be able to play a ball correctly.
