To better understand how to do these types of volleyball hits hitters who attack the ball in matches first need to learn these terms ...
Spike Approach -
The spike approach will vary in speed and in length according to the set a player receives.
The spike approach can be compared to an airplane's pre-flight takeoff because it needs to travel a certain distance forward in order to gain the momentum needed for it to lift itself up off of the ground.
To hit a volleyball requires a player to take a spike approach as described above followed by an armswing that is used to bring the player's hand above their head to make contact with the ball so that it clears the net and finishes in the opposing team's court.
Of the three attempts a team has, to get the ball into the opposing team's court, the spike is most often attempted on the third contact.
Types of Volleyball Hits - The Attack
An attack is the offensive team's attempt to get the ball into the opposing team's court by either spiking the ball, tipping or dumping or using an off speed hit.
Types of Volleyball Hits - The Kill
A kill is registered when a player has scored a point or a sideout by successfully attacking or hitting the ball onto the opposing team's court floor within their court lines and boundaries.
