If you want to succeed in volleyball, you have to learn how to perform these serves. So let’s take a look at them:
The top spin serve is a serve that makes the ball look a curve ball pitched from a baseball player. The ball is going to curve straight down. The way to do it is to put as much top spin on the ball as possible. By hitting the ball really hard and snapping your wrist, you should get the ball to spin towards the ground as it crosses the net.

The squat is one of the most basic exercises known to man, but it is also one of the most beneficial exercises for athletes such as basketball players, football players, and volleyball players.

The same thing would be done for a weighted squat except you would be lifting a barbell with weights. Find your maximum weight and then subtract about 40-50 pounds from it until you can do the exercises with great form and confidence. Then you can increase the weight weekly.

The sport of Volleyball was originally started in 1895 when William G. Morgan, an instructor at the Young Men’s Christian Association in Holyoke, Massachusetts, wanted to take elements from popular sports such as basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball to create a new kind of sport for different classes of businessmen that would be less physically demanding than the game of basketball. The result was volleyball, which he originally called Mintonette. Morgan took the kind of net used in tennis and raised it to 6 feet 6 inches above the court, which was just above the average men’s height at the time. The naming for volleyball came when, during a demonstration game of the new sport, an observer remarked about the back and forth volleying action of the play.
Volleyball then continued to advance. On July 7th, 1896, the first game of volleyball was played at Springfield college. Later, in 1900, … Read the rest
By following a short warm-up exercise routine you will improve your ability to out perform the competition. You can be faster and stronger with these few exercises. The warm-up routine I will recommend will allow your muscles to warm-up and actively stretch, sometimes called a dynamic warm-up, dynamic stretch or if used as a workout rather than a warm-up, bursting. While getting a good stretch on your muscle you are also increasing speed, flexibility, agility and bursting strength.
Most track athletes are used to this type of warm-up and exercise routine. As a basketball player you have more demand to be agile. You need to be able to quickly change direction, spin and stop. A track athlete is more concerned with reaching a top speed as quickly as possible.
Here is my recommended basketball warm-up routine. Start with a light jog for 10 minutes. I recommend running a slow mile … Read the rest
Improving your game is actually very simple. What you want to do is practice the fundamentals of basketball daily. Michael Jordan was able to great things on the basketball court because he mastered the fundamentals of basketball.

The reason you were able to accomplish all those feats is because you mastered the fundamental of walking. You mastered it because you practiced every day without fail. What if you decided to practice the fundamentals of … Read the rest
Let’s begin by looking at the man-to-man defensive techniques. One of the first determinations is the dominant hand of your opponent; either right-handed or left-handed. This is the shooting hand, and it determines how you guard your man and obstructing the shooting path. The next determination is which foot is the pivot foot. This can change with possessions and determines the drive side tendency, frequently to the non-pivot foot side. Another tell is the hand position on the ball. Shooting hand behind the ball indicates preparing for a shot. Hands to the side of the ball indicate preparing to pass. Hand on the upper part of the ball indicates preparing to dribble and which hand indicates going left or right.
Another indicator is dribble patterns. Players who dribble between the legs or behind the back do so in repeated patterns prior to shooting or driving to the basket. Knowing that … Read the rest
There are a few factors to consider when training/learning how to hit a volleyball, also known as an attack or spike. One of those factors is the approach, the “run” towards the ball after it is released from the setter’s hands. First, make sure you are standing behind the ten-foot line with your right foot slightly in front of your left foot and arms down beside you. Next, take a step with your left foot and then another with your right foot. You will then want to plant or hop quickly with your left foot. You can think of it as well as left- right, left. You will want to practice this by starting out slowly and as you get the hang of it, speed it up to a quick “run”. Bend your knees and jump bringing your arms up in the air.
