The 6 Positions Of Volleyball

Aug 1, 2008
Players of the same position are three spots away from their counterparts at the net to ensure that there is always an outside hitter, a middle blocker, and a setter or opposite in the front row. The front row usually consists of taller players that can jump the highest to block and spike.

Players such as Italy's Andrea Santoretti are devastating jump servers, able to serve at great speed with tremendous spin. Setters, hitters, blockers are so your players can cover the court. Setters need to have swift and skillful appraisal and tactical accuracy, and must be quick at moving around the court. There are 6 positions of volleyball, we will talk about some of them.

Setters need to learn proper footwork technique, eye work, decision making skills, game management, and leadership skills. Outside and Right side Hitters need to learn transition footwork, approach footwork, arm swing mechanics, blocking techniques, passing technique, defensive footwork patterns, and how to be a captain.

Players cannot cross the line. The leader with a whistle is blindfolded or stands so he cannot see players. Players should always be prepared to dig because the ball comes fast. Players should always be located in areas of the court where digs are likely to occur.

Players try to pick out the worst passer on the opposing team and then serve and hit in their direction as often as possible. It is also important for the team to identify where they may have advantages in height match ups at the net and then capitalize on those opportunities.

The players in the middle provide the team with tough protection at the net. Middle hitters are just hit middle and block all side, left-side hitters always hit and pass on the left side and then right-side hitters always hit back and pass right.

Teamwork and sportsmanship are the foundations of sports and of life. We will use cooperation skills throughout everything we do and as we learn these skills ,we will improve our future skills with friends, family, leisure activities, and in the work place.

One Volleyball game rule is Teams can also try to block the opponent's spike as it crosses the net. A block into your own court counts as one of your three touches in beach volleyball, but not in volleyball.

Servers must be more diligent to make legal serves as their serve violations no longer merely result in a pointless side out. All serve violations result in a loss of rally point. Service reception is normally done underhanded (on the arms), because services tend to be too strong to play decently with overhanded technique (with the fingers). The receivers are deployed in what is called a W-formation (see the red lines).
