The primary focus of this book is to develop an all-around/universal athlete into a specialized athlete (specialist). This progression is discussed with references to setting, outside hitting, middle hitting, back-row hitting, serving, outside blocking, middle blocking, defence, coverage and service reception and will be connected to related service reception, offensive, and defensive formations. Another major focus is to design and practice match systems. Strategies and counterstrategies in serving, service reception, offence and defence will be dealt with. Special aspects of individual, group, and team tactics will be discussed. In addition, the authors look at the development of counterstrategies to an opponent's match plan and give examples of ways to cover a hitter in certain offensive formations. Furthermore, we will deal with solid ways of developing the most efficient and effective game system that would bring out the strengths of a team, including the use of the libero. The problem faced is that all of these issues are not completely or sufficiently covered in the existing literature. This gap is filled with this book.
