When you learn how to spike the volleyball you learn to take a three or four step spike approach followed by an arm swing that is used to bring your hand above their head to make contact with the ball so that it clears the net and finishes in the opposing team's court.

This is called attacking the ball, hitting the ball or an attack hit. 

An attack hit is made when a player on the offensive team attempts to get the ball into the opposing team's court by either

  • spiking the ball,
  • tipping the ball
  • dumping the ball
  • using an off speed hit

My asst. coach and player Jacob Ceci uses a strong spike approach to attack hit a ball for his Coronado High School boys team.

The Spike Approach


Spike Approach

Often compared to what an airplane does on a runway as it gathers speed before it lifts off in the air...the spike approach is a series of three or four steps a player uses before elevating themselves into the air so they can contact the ball above the top of the net so they can propel the ball over the net and into the opposing team's court in an effort to score a point. 

The spike approach will vary in speed and in length according to the set a player receives.

A Step by Step Guide For The Spike Approach 

I Define Spiking And 16 Other Volleyball Attack Hit and Kill Terms: For right handers with a three step approach ...step with the left foot and keep arms in front of you.I Define Spiking And 16 Other Volleyball Attack Hit and Kill Terms: For right handers with a three step approach ...step with the left foot and keep arms in front of you.

  • Both feet start together and perpendicular to the net while waiting for the set.
  • For right handers with a three step approach ...step with the left foot and keep arms in front of you.

Take your last two steps quickly and explosively ...

  • right step - while at the same time both arms thrust WAY back (loose shoulders) before
  • left step - BOTH get thrust forward fast as the body gets launched vertically into the air...
  • Then pull the elbow back--keeping it high (above the level of the ear) then with

a HIGH reach be aware of where the hand is on the ball..to get it to go exactly where you want it to go..
