COACHING SESSION: SHOOTING FROM AN ANGLE
 

1) The server plays the ball into the attacker who must either take one touch before striking the shot or shoot first-time.

2) Here, he hits the shot first-time into the corner of the net. He now goes to the back of the queue and the original server now becomes the shooting player. The session is then repeated.
