In volleyball there are six positions. Upper right hand corner, front middle, upper left hand corner, back left corner, middle back, and back right corner. There are some basic hits like a bump, a set, then a spike. A bump is barely touching it and making it go to one of the players, then they set it, which is high in the air, and a third person comes and spikes it. A spike is when the ball is in the air and then anyone hits it with an overhand hit. To serve, you have the ball in your left hand or right (depending if you are a lefty or a righty) then you get your left or right hand and swing at it, and if you use too much strength, it will go out. If you don’t hit the ball that hard, it won’t go over. When you serve overhand or underhand, you have to be behind the line ; if you cross the line, it is called a foot fault, then the other team gets the point. In volleyball you are not allowed to touch the net or go under it. If the ball does hit the net, and it wasn’t a serve, you can hit the ball again and try to get the point. You are only allowed to hit the ball three times. If you hit it for the third time, and it doesn’t go over the net, then it is a sideout.
