Film Friday: USA vs. Italy

Updated: May 22


In this weeks #FilmFriday we overview the 2019 FIVB World Championships match between USA and Italy. USA loses the first set but goes on to win the match 3 sets to 1. This is a great opportunity to observe how the team reacts to a difficult first set defeat, but then turns it around to capture the match.


Keys that we overviewed:

  • Using the elevated center back camera angle to get a strong grasp on the amount of movement the players serve creates

  • Simple efficient defensive movements that get defenders into a position to see the swing around the block

  • Italy's deep base defense and squeeze defense against the middle/bic attack

  • Identifying what worked well against Italy and what did not in the first set

  • What type of adjustments were made between sets 1 & 2?
