First, thank you all for the comments on the other thread. just doing my job.
The normal practice routine for about 3 hours. Small groups by position serve and pass, then a couple of 4s on 4s and 3s on 3s min scrimmages.
next session had two courts of 6 being served to, running plays and alternating hitters taking swings. Onc court had Uiato setting, Longo as libero, Kastl and Harong Ls, Vorster MB, Goodman RS. The oterh Higgins setting. Adolpho and Tuaniga running middle. Taylor used LS and RS.
They swithed setters. Uiato wored on a couple of inside slides to Tuaniga, Higgins on her connection with Vorster. Adolpho continues to impress me with her improved quickness.
Shoji wasn't pleased with some of the 'guess blocking.'it wasn't 'read blocking' because they were more waving their hands instead of set and pressing back over.. He said to stop the 'Lovely hula hands'
They did a couple of 6-on-6 scrimmages being in a set in a certain lineup with rotating. Long hit some nice line shots from the left. Whoever lost the set had to run lines instead of doing the pushups they had been doing this past week.
the side that had Longo, Kastl, Long, Tuaniga, Adolpho and Taylor won both times, once with Uiato, the other with Higgins.
Think that's about it. They will practice twice tomorrow (Sunday)
