With Coach Ukai's advice in mind to not go underestimating what it takes to be a ball boy, Hinata comes out with a clearer mind. Hinata works on receiving the ball in different ways by reading the spikers' form, a skill that he learned in middle school. For personal training, Hinata volunteers to be on the receiving side in an effort to practice his split form. Back at Karasuno High, the boys had a practice match with Tokonami High while they practicing on their serves, realizing that they preferred to do the penalty whether they win or lose. Kageyama continues his practice at National Youth Camp and subconsciously set his toss higher than usual.
