Volleyball Slang Terms On Coach April's Got Balls? Hot New Shirt Line

I combined funny volleyball slang terms with the plural form of the word "ball" to create new funny volleyball tshirt quotes on Volleybragswag shirts on Etsy.


Here's a twist on some commonly used volleyball slang terms that I chose to feature on my new line of volleyball t shirts.   

Since I put together a new collection of funny volleyball player quotes by pairing the plural form of the word "ball" to create new definitions for common volleyball lingo like:

  • Tattoo
  • Thump
  • Flipper
  • Campfire
  • Pancake
  • Lift
  • Joust
  • Lollipop
  • 4 Contacts


In my ETSY shop called Volleybragswag there are over 35 volleyball slang terms featured on volleyball t shirts, hoodies and long sleeve shirts in my collection.

Volleyball Slang Terms: About the Ace in Volleyball

Why Is An Ace in Volleyball Good? 


When you score an "ace" in a volleyball game that means that at the beginning of a rally after the referee blows the whistle you served the ball in an aggressive or strategic way so that the ball once it crosses the net into the other team's court

  • gets mishandled so its unplayable or 
  • it touches the floor so noone can make a play with it


What's so good about being able to serve an ace or serve multiple aces in a game?

Since serving is the only skill in volleyball where you can score points without the help of a teammate, you are in total control from start to finish of getting really good at this particular skill.

You can work on a ton of different serving drills on your own that help you develop a tough serve anywhere on the opposing team's court. I did this and I became such a good server that I still hold service ace records at the University of Tennesee Knoxville after all this time.

I wanted to be personally responsible for scoring as many points a game from the service line for my team that I could so I spent alot of my free time working on being able to make a very tough serve and that I could serve any small space on the opposing team's court at any point during a match. 

This is something you can do too.

With rally scoring, a team that is serving earns a point and the right to serve when they score a point.

When the team in serve receive wins the rally, they earn a point for their team, they rotate one position, and a new server earns the right to serve to start the new rally.
