How to Play Volleyball : How to Read a Volleyball Court


Hey name is Addison from Captain Bill’s, and
I’m going to teach you how to read a volleyball court. First main part in reading a volleyball
court is strategy. You want to look at your opponent and see if you have a strong or a
weak player or both on the other team. So if you have a weak player you want to go to
your the weak player on the other team, because it will be a easier opportunity for your team
to get the point. Second part on how to read a volleyball court is predicting what the
other team is going to do before they do it. You want to make sure that if the set is way
off the net you know you don’t need to go up and block, because they’re not going to
be able to hit it straight down. So you want to be able to back up and get your best defensive
position that you can, because they cannot hit the ball straight down. So you want to
be able to predict before the other team does it what they’re going to do so that you can
have the best opportunity to get the ball back and to get a point for your team. The
third part on how to read a volleyball court is you want to look at the veterans of playing
volleyball, and look at them and how they read a volleyball court. If you’re a beginning
and you’re walking on to a court, you’re not going to be that good at reading a volleyball
court. You’re going to need to learn from the veterans, see how they play, and how they
read a volleyball court, and learn from them. So really reading a volleyball court comes
with a lot of experience. For example, say I’m playing two on two, and the setter sets
the ball really tight, and I have a blocker up. If the ball is really tight I’m not going
to want to hit the ball, because I’m probably going to hit it right into the blocker and
it’s going to come down on my side, and the other team’s going to get a point. So what
I’m going to do is I’m going to want to put it over the block or around the block to keep
it in the court, and to make the other team move for the ball so that they have to scramble
to move for the ball and try to get the point. Also if the setters sets me a little bit off
the net, and I still have a blocker, I’m not going to want to hit into the block, I’m not
going to want to hit it hard. I’m going to want to take a little off speed shot to get
it inside the court, and once again make the opponent work for the point. Next thing is
if the setter puts up a perfect set, and I have a open court with no blocker I can swing
away, and hit the ball anywhere I want in the court and to make the other team work
for it. If you put it all together take from those veterans, watch experienced players
play the game you can learn from them. And use all your knowledge of the game to read
a volleyball court.
