Russ Rose believes that a key component to the future of volleyball is the implementation of the back row attacker. Coach Rose notes that as the game evolves there are more opportunities to use players in different areas of the court, and that the back row is a critical area to develop for increasing a team's ability to score points. Rose begins by teaching you strategies and drills to develop a back row player's awareness of the proper position from which to take a quality swing. He includes footwork and zone identification drills - both with and without the ball. Rose also includes seven drills and situational options that will assist you in implementing the workings of the back row attack. Rose concludes with seven drills and scenarios focusing on the technical aspects for utilizing your back row as a viable scoring threat.
