#StayHome Basic Volleyball Skills

Developing basic volleyball skills at home in the period of COVID-19



 Passing is simply getting the ball to someone else on your team after it’s been served or hit over the net by the opposing team. It’s commonly thought of as the most important skill in all of volleyball, because your team can’t return the ball without a solid volleyball pass. Forearm volleyball passes are often used to direct the ball in a controlled manner to a teammate, but overhead passing is another option.


Our final fundamental skills is serving. How can you be a great volleyball player without knowing how to serve? There are a variety of ways to serve, but you’ll most often see the underhand or overhand serves.


Digging is a defensive maneuver in volleyball that can save your team from an offensive spike or attack. Your job is to keep the ball from hitting the floor, and you do that by diving and passing the ball in a fluid motion. Unlike a typical pass, you’ll probably be trying to recover the ball from a steep downward trajectory. This is another great skill to have, but isn’t as important as passing, setting, or spiking.
