Blocking is the first line of defense.
To block well you are required to
1. You can jump and place your arms, hands and shoulders over the net to stop a hitter or setter from attacking the ball into your court. But...
2. While blocking, your feet may come in contact with the centerline also known as the halfcourt line. But...
3. While your team is on defense you can block any attacked ball but...
4. While on defense in the front row, you can come off the court on the opposing team's side to retrieve a ball back into your court but...
This usually occurs when a blocker steps over the center line and for some reason, often in transition, lands and steps outside of the sideline (but into the free zone) of the opponent's court.
Because the free zone is considered the playing area of the court, this is legal and one of the few times a player is permitted to step across the center court line during a rally.
Volleyball block rules are established so players, teams and coaches compete fairly in their quest to win a match.
