Key points for throws
Now let's use this real combat example to analyze key points why players can successfully respond to a teammate's serve because of what they did?
Don't run until your teammates are ready to serve.
Do you know when teammates are ready to serve?
If you run to catch up with your opponent before your teammates are ready to serve, it will not only drain your energy, but also give your opponent enough time to make a decision and intercept ball.
Start off tee slowly.
Create space for teammates to serve.
Pretend to run to side, then suddenly change direction and accelerate to meet a teammate's serve.
This quick change of direction allows you to instantly close gap between you and defender.
The receiver is better off placing marker with their back to server before changing direction and accelerating.
This gives defender more time to adjust their pace when receiver changes direction and speeds up.
This design can quickly close distance between marker and defender.
This way you have enough time to get to point of contact between defender and ball.
At this time, defender needs to go around you in order to intercept ball.
Or other side, in fact ball is under your complete control at this time. The opponent has almost no opportunity to break ball.

Quickly get between your opponent and ball.
Now let's look at catch process in more detail.
