10yd Dash

Dashr | Blue - Operating the

The 10 yard dash is commonly used in testing volleyball players. When possible, we recommend testing with a 5 yard split for additional detail related to movement on the court. This requires 3 gates to include the 5 split, or only 2 gates if you do not have a split.

Step-by-step instructions

This drill uses 2 or 3 Dashr|Blue Timing gates (3 if you have the 5 split). You likely already have your devices registered, if not - please check out the Flying Drill as it is the same process.

Setting up the drill

  • You will use a 2-point start for this drill, so we recomment using the Flying dril or the 10 yard dash under Sport Collections > Volleyball > 10 yd Dash. Both will do the same thing.

  • To set-up this drill you will have a starting gate on regular tripods extended to about waist height.

  • If you are including a split, set that up on regular tripods as well.

  • Set-up the finish laser at waist height at the 10 yard mark.

  • Power on all lasers, and connect them one at a time.

  • Once all devices are connected, press "Start Testing".

Running the drill

  • Check in the appropriate athlete (details here) - optional.

  • With QuickRun on, when the athlete moves through the starting gate -timing will start (time will turn blue - indicating that timing is taking place), and you get a result when you cross the next gate.

  • With QuickRun off (option in settings) you will see “Set” and “Reset” buttons to give you control of when a test starts. Press "Set" once the athlete is ready to take off. Press "Reset" to clear the time for the next athlete.
