The AcuSpike Ball Catcher is a standalone machine designed to catch volleyballs and funnel them into a ball cart. The ball catcher is used to collect balls during hitting practice, and can be used with a traditional set, a ball throwing machine, or an AcuSpike Trainer. It can also be used as a serving or passing target. The ball catcher features a bi-directional hand crank to easily adjust its height.
Automatically Shags Balls
We have been talking with coaches at every level from all over the world and one thing we keep hearing is "How do I get the most benefit out of a limited amount of practice time?" The AcuSpike Training Team is continually creating new and innovative ways to make your training more efficient. Our latest development is the AcuSpike Ball Catcher. We have found that shagging balls can consume as much as 80% of the time during high repetition hitting drills. This tool eliminates the time consuming task of shagging balls, clearing the floor of stray rolling volleyballs in the process.
Practice Hitting Alone
Repetition is key to reinforcing any new skill, and the ball catcher allows players to get the most number of repetitions in a fixed amount of time. In combination with the AcuSpike spike trainer, the most ambitious players can even practice alone!
Not Just a Hitting Target
The AcuSpike Ball Catcher has also proven to be a effective tool for working on an aggressive jump serve as well as a passing target. By reducing the amount of time spent on gathering balls, you can focus on training player skills and technique.
