Be unpredictable by mixing up your shots.
Tip the balls everyone expects you to hit and hit the imperfect ones
that are a little off the net.
Be smart and use common sense.
Don't attempt to spike those balls that are below the net height or too
low to hit.
Be the last player to touch the ball in a joust.
When two players contact the ball at the same time over the net, the
second one to touch the ball almost always wins.
The second player has the advantage of going up and pushing the
volleyball over the net, while the first player comes down, losing
momentum on her way.
A lot of times in the volleyball game we get so wrapped up in just hitting
the ball that we forget that we could possibly kick the ball to the
corners of the court and make a point.
Okay maybe not kick the ball but still, there's so much space in the back
court during long rallies that if you remember to get the ball back there,
you'll definitely make points.
So here is...
First, confirm with your teammates that the opposing team is playing
Man-up defense occurs when a coach has her left back player or right
back player responsible for picking up the tips, so once they see where
the opposing team's setter has set the ball, they creep up automatically
a few feet to play defense right behind the block so they can easily pick
up any tips.
If they do confirm this, then you now know you have deep court open

In volleyball practice, learn to tip the ball high over the block to the
deep corners of the court.

The author of this site former pro beach and indoor volleyball player April
Chapple gives you 86 Girls Volleyball Tips, quick and easy bite size
chunks of skill information that volleyball girls of all ages will find useful.
April gives you three valuable spiking tips from her book 86 Girls
Volleyball Tips which explore how to hit the seam between the block,
how to hit the imperfect set and the importance of reaching high when
you spike the ball.
Giving serving advice to volleyball players is April's specialty and here
you will find out why you need to face your target, what you need to
have already decided before picking the ball up to serve it and why the
toss plays such an important part in how effective your serve will be.
Both liberos, defensive specialist and anybody who plays backrow
defense will find these three tips immediately useful. Most players take
the pepper warmup for granted and Coach April explains two reasons
why you shouldn't.
You'll also find out why it's better practice against players who are
bigger, better, faster and stronger than you are.
When I say "bump" you say "pass" because bumping and passing are
both commonly used serve receive terms.
Coach April offers bumping and passing advice on how to hold your arms
in a platform in order to keep them as straight as possible, what "beat
the ball" means and last but not least she talks about why you can't run
like a girl on the court.
