COACHING SESSION: SHOOTING FROM AN ANGLE 2
 

1) The server plays the ball into the attacker who must shoot first-time.

2) Here, he hits the shot first-time into the far corner of the net.

3) The player who hits the shot, after following the ball in, now moves into the penalty spot area to follow the shots in and look for any rebounds. Each player takes a turn at shooting and serving.
