Here's how to win a joust in volleyball.
These hitting tips are effective skills you can use when the ball is set too close to the block and you both go up and contact the ball, at the same time, over the net.
If you and another player contact the ball at the same time over the top of the net, this spiking and blocking action is called a joust.
In 99% of the cases if two players go up to attack a ball that's located exactly halfway over the net and if they both end up contacting the ball at the same time over the net, then its the second player who touches the ball last who has the advantage.
You want to wait as long as you can before you put your hands on the ball to push it over into the opposing court.
This blocking skill takes practice but its worth saving a tip gone bad or a ball that floats over the net too close to the block.
Another way to score points with your spiking/blocking ability is to be the last player to touch the ball.
Study these tips on winning the joust in volleyball so you too increase your chances of getting the ball past the block with a difficult set so in a rally you score points against your opponents.
Okay here's where you need to go now! There are three options:
