Volleyball By: Lindsay Scheffler April 22 nd 2008
<ul><li>In volleyball you have six people playing. You have four matches in one game. You play until one team gets to 21. And if you wear jewelry you have to get taken out and take it off, when this happens you usually don’t get back in for a long time. </li></ul>Games
Rules <ul><li>The only rules are you cant hit it outside the lines, you only hit it certain ways, you have to serve behind the line, you can only have 3 hits and on the third hit you have to get it over to the other side, and you cant touch the net or the other side gets a point. </li></ul>
Tournaments In a Tournament you play 3 matches in one game. During a tournament you play about 4 or 5 games all day. They usually start around nine in the morning and end about three or four. The rules are the same as the games but you go to 25 most of the time instead of 21.
<ul><li>The basic rotation is 3 in the front row 3 in the back row. The middle front is the setter the left front and right front are the hitters. The back row are the bumpers they get any ball that comes to them and hit it up to the setter then the setter sets it to the hitter and the hitter spikes the ball to the other side. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Once you get into higher grades you will have more complicated positions. Instead of having the basic one you will have around 3 different ones and they can be confusing. </li></ul>
Good Attitude <ul><li>In volleyball if you don’t have a good attitude when you play and after if you lose and you yell at everybody for not doing good you could get kicked off the team or not play for a couple games. So you need a good attitude to play. </li></ul>
Volleyball is a very fun sport and I’ve been around volleyball since I was born. My mom used to coach volleyball and I always went to practice with her and played with all the girls at the practices. This is why I love volleyball.
