There are many ways to hit a volleyball and three ways are, serving, bumping and setting a volleyball. Practice is what will make you be better in volleyball.
William G. Morgan, a graduate of the Springfield College of the YMCA, designed the game volleyball to be a combination of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball. There are 2 different ways to serve a volleyball. One way to serve a volleyball is the overhand serve, you have to start with your feet. Put your left foot in front of your right, about shoulder width apart. Hold the ball at about eye-level with your left hand on the bottom and your right hand on top. The toss should only be high enough so that when you pull back your right arm, the hand contacts the ball on its downward swing. Toss the ball with your left hand, pull back your right arm as far as possible and swing. The second way to serve a volleyball is the underhand serve, you have to hold the ball in the hand opposite from the hitting hand, a right-handed player would hold the ball in the left hand. Hold the ball below the waist and above the knee so that with bent knees, the server is in good position to get the ball over the net. I serve a volleyball overhand, to me I think it is easier than the underhand serve. I like to serve overhand better because you can get the ball to go where you want it to go, for me when I try to serve underhand the ball goes everywhere else than where I want it to go
There's only one way to bump a volleyball. There are 8 steps to bumping a volleyball.First you have to Get in position, Create a platform with your arms, the third step is Use your legs, Hit the ball with both arms,Move to the ball, Pass the ball, Aim the ball, the last step is keep your eye on the ball after you bump it. If you follow these steps and you practice bumping a volleyball you will get better at it. To get into potion you need to stand with your legs shoulder width apart and lean forward a little bit. Creating a platform with your arms, the platform is the area between your wrists and elbows. You need to use your legs and your arms, push through the ball. Potion yourself so that you hit the ball with both arms. To bump the ball you have to move to the ball so that it will come down squarely in front of you. To pass the ball either over then net or to a teammate you have to keep your eyes on the ball. You need to aim the ball where you want t to go, so if you twist your shoulders to aim the ball you will get the ball to go where you want it to. Last thing you need to do when bumping a volleyball is watch the ball with your eyes not your whole body.
The set shot is great for controlling the ball and setting up for an attack. It's a great technique for your team to set up and score points. It’s an overhand or overhead shot. The shot is controlling the ball hitting in straight up above the net and relatively close to the net. This is because the set shot is setting up for the last shot out of the 3 shots. The set shot involves using your palms and hitting the ball following through straight up. This works pretty good for me. Your fingers are the only part of your hand that touches the ball. Your thumbs, index fingers, and middle fingers are what you use with your wrists to catch and push the ball.
To get better at volleyball you just need to follow the steps and practice, instead of trying to get better on your own and not knowing how to do it. I know this from experience because when I went to my first practice after summer was over, I wasn’t as good so I started practicing harder and harder soon I became not the best volleyball player, but a decent one.
