  1. 1. ALL ABOUT VOLLEYBALL! By: Ms. Baus
  2. 2. -Basic Concepts of the Game -Digging -Setting -Serving -Blocking -Offensive/Defensive Strategies -Interesting Facts -Personal Skill Development
  3. 3. BASIC CONCEPTS  Six people on the court at one time  Consists of: 2 outside, 2 middle and 1 right side hitter, 1 setter  Rally Scoring to 21 points with a cap at 30 and you must win by two points  Cannot touch the net with any part of your body!  A serve starts every possession  Basic rotation is a circle, harder rotations happen at higher levels  Back row players cannot hit in the front row until they reach the front
  4. 4. DIGGING  Basic Concepts of Digging in Volleyball:  Get in an athletic stance-low to the ground, knees bent, on the balls of the feet ready to move quickly  Hold both arms out in front, as straight as possible  Clasp hands together so they do not come apart when hitting the ball  Arms should form a flat platform
  5. 5. DIGGING CTD.  Basic Motion of Digging  Squatting Motion  More of a scooping with the arms than a swinging motion  This comes more from bending the legs  When is Digging Used?  When there is a hard driven ball coming at you such as a spike (hit) or a serve.
  6. 6. SETTING  Basic Concepts of Setting in Volleyball:  Stance: legs shoulder with apart, dominate foot slightly in front, slight bend in the knee  Arms: overhead slightly lowered and bent, should be able to see hands  Hands: Thumb and pointer fingers on both hands form a triangle and fingers are all spread widely apart  IMPORTANT: Do not make the mistake of keeping your fingers locked. They should be soft!
  7. 7. SETTING CTD.  Basic Motion of Setting  ALWAYS get underneath the ball (never behind you)  Bend the legs and arms and push the ball up  Follow through by letting the fingers go out to the sides  Cradle the ball DO NOT slap  When do you use the Set?  Used usually during the second hit of play to set up the hitter to spike the ball!  Can also be used if the ball is coming high at your head
  8. 8. SERVING  Two Types of Serve: Overhand and Underhand  Basic Concept of Underhand:  Place ball in non-dominant hand, stance is staggered with non-dominant foot in front  Dominant hand makes a fist with the fingers facing up  Swing arm back and make contact with ball  Follow through where you want ball to go  DO NOT TOSS OUT OF YOUR HAND!
  9. 9. SERVING CTD.  Basic Concept of the Overhand Serve  Staggered stance with non-dominant foot in front  Ball held in non-dominant hand  Dominant hand drawn back to ear, elbow sticking back, all even  Throw ball up in the air with a slight toss  Dominant hand makes contact to hit when ball is in the air  Dominant fingers are close together making a “high five” appearance
  10. 10. SERVING CTD.  When to Use the Serve:  The serve is used to start off each new team possession  Can score points off of a serve  What Serve Do I use?  First use whatever serve you are better at  About placement: want to aim for the weakest passer to get points.  Underhand: good to serve really high  Overhand: good to serve hard, but accurately
  11. 11. BLOCKING  Basic Concept of Blocking In Volleyball  Legs together, arms straight up in the air  Strong, straight fingers  Must jump to get hands over the net  Follow the set to the hitter to know where to block
  12. 12. BLOCKING CTD.  When to use a Block  A block is used to either stop the ball from the opponents side to get onto your side or to slow down the hit from the opponents side so the back row players can make a better pass.  Only front row players can block and can have a single, double or even triple block depending on how hard the ball is hit on the opposing side.
  13. 13. OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE STRATEGIES  Allowed to only hit three times per side before sending it over  Basic offense is the bump, set, spike  More advanced can run different plays switching hitter positions  (Ex: moving the middle hitter to the outside to hit a quick ball)  Very important and needed to run a good offense  Have the base position and the action position  Libero: the best passer on the team that only plays the back row and substitutes in for the weaker passers Offense Defense
  14. 14. INTERESTING FACTS!  Volleyball was invented in 1895 in Holyoke Massachusetts at the YMCA by William Morgan.  Morgan derived the game from a popular game in Germany called Faustball.  Originally volleyball was called Mintonette.  Stanford and Penn State have the best volleyball programs in the world.
  15. 15. ME AND VOLLEYBALL  I play beach volleyball for the GAV (Great American volleyball league) and won my first tournament this past summer! Beating out 8 teams.  Played club volleyball for WVU for 4 years and was the president last year.  Coach high school volleyball freshman at my old high school Roselle Catholic in NJ.  Have played volleyball since 5th grade  Won the NJ state title for volleyball my senior year of high school in 2006 and was captain for 2 years.
  16. 16. YOUR TASK  After completing the volleyball unit create a power point talking about two skills out of the 6 we covered:  Bumping, Setting, Serving, Blocking, Offense, Defense  Include what you personally learned and a slide with your strengths and weaknesses and how you will improve them  Make sure to add some pictures and be creative!  We will be presenting on Wednesday the 6th of December!
