As a blocker in volleyball you can't touch the net while going up or coming down in your attempt to block an opposing team's hitter from attacking the ball into your court.
Once the ball goes over the net, the serving team "on defense" ready to create a wall at the net that the opposing team has to hit over, knock down or hit around in an attempt to score a point or a wideout.
No. One of the common faults committed by beginner players is trying to block the setter. Volleyball block rules prevent you from blocking an opposing team's setter who's attempting to set a ball.
No you can't. Not according to FIVB and USA volleyball block rules. Players aren't allowed to block the serve either in doubles or the traditional six-man game.
The ball has to be allowed to enter into the opposing team's court before the rally can begin.
A one-man block is known as a solo block, a two-man block is known as a double block and a three-man block is known as a triple block.
No. In the six vs six person game a team commits a foul if one of their backrow players tries to come to the front row to help block a ball.
If you block a ball and it bounces out of bounds on your side or the opponent's side or without one of your diggers getting the ball up then its not a point for your team.
With rally scoring, where a point is rewarded for every successful winning play, that would be a point for the opposing team because you were the last person to touch the ball before it hit the ground (In this case, out of bounds or in your own court.)
2. If you block a ball and it then hits the antenna before hitting the ground, then the ball is considered out of bounds and both the ball and a point is awarded to the opposing team.
This is because the blocker is the last person to contact the ball before it went out of bounds so the blocking team loses the ball and the point.
