10-Yard Dash

The 10-yard dash is a vital metric in volleyball, capturing the essence of speed and acceleration on the court. By incorporating a 5-yard split, we delve deeper, mirroring the distances commonly covered during intense gameplay. With just 2 gates, or 3 for the split measurement, Dashr provides precise data, offering insights that refine your training and enhance your game.

Drill 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.

Step-By-Step Instructions

  • You will use a 2-point start for this drill, so we recommend using the Flying drill 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.
