How to Play Volleyball : How to Play Defense in Volleyball


Hello, this is Keith Sewell on behalf of Expert
Village. In this clip, we’re going to talk about how to play defensive volleyball. Defensive
position is similar to a bump-pass for digging, but you’re going to bend your knees much more
and you weight is going to be more forward so you can sprawl forward if the ball is hit
in front of you. The middle back should be in the center of the court, one step from
the in line. The left back and right back should be in one step from the side line and
one step back from the 10-foot line. The left front, middle front, and right front should
have their hands up and ready to block at the net. If the ball is set to their strong-side
hitter, this is how you should rotate: the left side blocker should retreat to the 10-foot
line and defends the cross-court shot. The middle blocker moves to join the right side
so he can double up on the block. If the ball is set to the right side hitter, here’s how
the team should rotate: the right side blocker retreats to the 10-foot line and defends the
cross-court shot. The middle blocker moves to join the left side blocker to double up
on the block. The middle back moves slightly right, depending where the block is. If there’s
a whole in the block, he would have to move where the hitter may hit through the block.
The left side back plays tight on the line just in case the hitter hits beside the block
and down the line. If the set is to the strong side hitter, then it will be the exact mirror
image of what we have just discussed.
