The Dig Volleyball Definition
What is an "up"?


A "nice up!" is a great defensive save or dig. 

It's in the same category of phrases or terms describing an incredible volleyball dig,  like the term "nice lip" is.

Kenny makes a great up in our defensive practice during Breakfast club. 


This is what players say when a teammate has been digging volleyball spikes all match has made an incredibly unbelievable dig. 



An "up" comes as a result of a player who is continuously digging volleyball hits, tips and attacks that stay off the floor.

When she digs a playable ball she has dug the ball "up." 

Regardless of whether you have to dive, roll, extend, sprawl or just stand in place to make great defensive saves, a nice "up" means you kept the  ball from hitting your court floor.
