The Basic Skills That Anyone Needs To Be Successful In Volleyball

Jan 21, 2008
If you are going to get into a game of volleyball, you at the very least need to be aware of what the game is about, the lingo involved, and the rules of the game. When people decide to engage in a sporting game sure they want to have fun but should also want to be an asset to the game as well. In volleyball you need to know where to stand and the rotation and you need to know the right way to hit the ball.

Serving is a very important part of volleyball and there are some things that need you need to know. Mainly there are two various serves that are part of a typical volleyball game, an overhand serve which is where the server throws the ball into the air and then hits it up and over the net. There is also the underhand serve where the server holds the ball in the palm of one hand and then comes up from an underhand position and sends the ball up and over the net.

Next, the pass or reception which is where the players will pass the ball to each other in an attempt to get it over the net and for it to remain in play. The ball can remain in play by hitting it with the forearm or passing it overhead. With time and practice there are tips to be learned to attempt to trick the opponents into thinking that the ball is going to be closer or farther than they originally anticipated. These are all in part of an aligned strategy plan for victory.

One of these strategies is called spiking the ball. This is where a player puts a direct hit to the ball where it would intentionally nosedive into the ground or the court, which is what the volleyball game area is called. If a player is good and has fast enough reflexes they will be able to maneuver themselves just under that forceful spike and keep the ball in play. There are many different ways to hit the ball and keep it legally in play during a game of volleyball. Foot movement is another critical part of keeping the game of volleyball in play. Each player has to stay within a certain area of play range. In other words a player can not freely roam around the court during play, they do have to stay within a defined area at all times or a boundary, if you will.

If you are training players in the sport of volleyball, connecting with the ball is a valuable fundamental to the game itself because there is a multitude of ways to connect with the ball to achieve various speeds, landings, and serves to pinpoint the accuracy of the ball during the game. As the rotation of players evolves around the court during play, each player will have a different contribution to the game at that point depending on their current position for that serve.
