Volleyball includes some skills to play game in better way like serve, pass, set, attack, block, and dig. Therefore these all skills are learning all over the time and can become professional.
The serve is done from beyond the court last line. But the serve can be done in many ways like underhand, sky ball serve, topspin, float, jump serve, jump float.
These all serve is done in such a way that ball passes over the net to the opponent team court. But if the service is not successful than other team gains the point and also gets the service.
If ball touches the line than also other team gets the point means team X and if ball touches the ground outside the court than opponent team gets the point means team Y .
Pass is the form in which player has to handle the opponent service or the attack. Therefore there are some technique of pass like under arm pass, over head pass and the bump.
So they use these techniques to handle the ball coming from opponent court and try to preventing from touching the court & try to pass it to the opponent court.
The set is usually used to attack on opponent by the ball. But in this usually 2nd contact of the player makes with the ball is called set.
So in this first player put the ball in the air in such a way that second player can hit the ball by the technique of pass in the form of attack into the opponent team.
They also called spike as attack. So in this form of skill usually the ball contact 3 times with different player’s.
In this first, player handle the opponent service or the attack and then passes the ball to another player which put the ball in the air in such a way that 3rd player can hit the ball by jumping into the air to hit the ball by hitter’s arm which is fully extended above their head and make highest possible contact with the ball to deliver the ball to the opponent court which can not be defended.
As a result the main motive is to attack the ball in such a way that no one can defend the ball easily.
Mainly the block is done by the player standing at the net and they also stop the attacking ball coming from opponent’s court, the timing is very important to block the attacking ball.
So, Block can be done by single, double or triple players at a same time. But they usually preformed this technique to stop the attacking ball from opponent players it is also called offensive.
It is usually done by jumping and reaching to penetrate with arms and hands on the other hand, blocking requires very much timing and techniques to understand.
It is not compulsory that the block is always successful some times the attacker attack the ball in such a way that blocker does not able to touch the ball and also stop the attack.
Dig is form of technique in which player has to handle the opponent service or the attack particularly a ball is nearly touches the ground.
Therefore the dig is by defending the ball by under arm, passing, bumping, overhead dig or bump techniques.
On the other hand the dig also has pancake technique in which the ball is almost touches the court but player slides their hand under ball so that ball can not touches the court is known as ‘pancake’.
But they perform this dig technique in such a way that they could not get any injuries.
