What Are the Most Vital Volleyball Skills

December 08, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 129

If volleyball is something that you have never done and have decided to pick up, then you need to learn and practice the rules of volleyball and the skills that go along with it. To be a solid player, you really only have to possess five important skills. As for a position, really the best way to figure this out is to play. Below, I have listed these skills that will help on your journey.

The serve is what begins every single play in volleyball (if you do not know this then you really need to study. Due to the fact that everyone serves (unless you are subbed out every time), this is a necessary skill to learn. Serves can be completed either underhand or overhand. The overhand serve will obviously be the more effective and stronger serve. a few specialized serves are called the float serve and the jump serve. Because of the difficulties with these serves, they are much harder to do.

The pass is the next essential skill to possess. If you cannot pass a volleyball, then you will likely never in the back row. I find passing one of the most enjoyable skills to be good at because I love serve receive and playing defense. You will not do either of those if you are a bad passer. When passing, the volleyball rules state that you can use either your arms or your hands. Your arms are used to bump the ball and your hands are used to set the ball.

The set almost always follows the pass in a volleyball game. Usually the setter on a volleyball team is much more athletic than the rest. Setters should also be the smartest and best leaders. I like to relate the position of the setter to a quarterback on a football team. You are responsible for moving the ball around and getting your players to score points.

The "attack" or "spike" is the skill that is going to get you points in volleyball. It takes a few things to be a good hitter. If you can jump, if you are strong, and you have good hand contact, become a hitter. One of the best feelings in the world is hitting the ball really hard and getting a great kill. If you advance our spiking skills you will definitely be feared on the court.

The block is basically the exact opposite skill than the attack. These skills almost go hand in hand. If you are a strong hitter but are terrible blocker, you may not ever play the front row. Blocking is essential to stop the other team from getting kills. You are getting the job done when the opposite setter will not set the hitter that you are blocking against.
