Attack Heatmaps With Science Untangled

Posted by

Follow the course of a match using heatmaps.

Set 1 – Attacking team able to hit the middle of the court and score at a high %.

Set 2 – The middle of the court is being closed. Attack effectiveness decreases.

Set 3 – Pos 2/1 cannot get the ball past the block. The attack that gets past the block is funnelled to the defence.

Set 4/5 – Nothing gets past the block. Attack % under 40%.

See https://apps.untan.gl/volleyspike/ to make your own fully personalisable heatmaps. Choose individual players, number of blockers, type of attack, score, and literally dozens of other filters.
