The Volleyball 101 article was adopted by questions. I am going to attempt to reply a few of them right here and observe up on a few of the posts. We’re considerably technical right here so stick with me, and you’ll want to ask questions within the feedback.
A graphic is required to higher perceive the backrow assault rule. Have a look at the court docket by the eyes of the sky. You see the online in the midst of the court docket. There’s a ten foot line or three meter line on both facet of the online.
Courtroom place helps us speak about the place persons are in court docket. Standing 1 is Server and Backrow. Place 5 and 6 are additionally backwards. Positions 2, 3 and 4 are the entrance row. Three backrow positions can not leap excessive of the online in entrance of the ten-foot line and hit the ball. In the event that they accomplish that, it’s a penalty that ends in some extent for the opposite workforce as a result of they’d have violated the backrow assault rule.
The backrow assault rule raises a number of questions, so let’s break it down. Re-read the daring sentence above for a rule about what backrow gamers can not do. This is what they will do, to assist us higher perceive the rule.
A backrow participant might assault the ball (above the highest of the online) so long as she or he jumps from behind the ten-foot line. She will be able to land along with her leap in entrance of the ten-foot line, which is the take-off level that’s regulated. A extremely good backrow attacker (Foke) will land effectively in entrance of the ten foot line (the shut contact level of the opposite workforce) to enhance the standard of the assault.
A backrow participant might play the ball over the online till it goes over the online. Consider a setter enjoying ball with a leap set. When she is backrow she must set the ball utterly in the direction of the online. If the ball “breaks the bottom of the online” (any a part of the ball goes over the online) and she or he tries to set it, she has damaged the backrow assault rule for the opposite workforce.
Backrow gamers can not do that. The gamers within the entrance row can do all these issues; Soar in entrance of the ten foot line and assault. Image the block. It is a participant who jumps and touches the ball over the online. Solely a entrance row participant can do that.
Image an assault (kill). It is a participant who jumps in entrance of the ten-foot line and touches the ball over the online and sends it over the online one final time. Solely a entrance row participant can do that.
Gamers within the entrance row can neither contact the online nor go underneath the online. Each are rule violations and the result’s factors for the opposite workforce.
