Question Volleyball! practice..? - November 14th 2009, 02:06 AM

Heyy. I'm trying out for my volleyball team at school this year. I made it last year but this year there are more people trying out who I know for sure will make it.
I was just wondering how I could practice at home. It's getting cold outside and pretty soon it will start snowing. Are there any ways for my to practice technique or something that will help me/make me better for when tryouts come?

Hey Karli,
It's great that you're willing to practice to get ready for tryouts. I have a couple of suggestions for practicing indoors at home. I know a friend that's into volleyball and she finds a wall to bump and set with. The problem with that is not everyone is allowed to hit the ball up against a wall, so make sure you get permission before trying that one.

Another suggestion I have is when you lie on your back on the floor, and you have your arms outstretched above you. You then set the ball a certain distance from your hands. This helps you gain strength in your arms, and you learn to control the ball while you try to keep setting it so it doesn't fall. When you get good at that you can keep increasing the distance you're setting the ball above you. I hope you understand what I've just explained there!

Hopefully you find a routine that works for you during the winter. You could always find a gym to practice in at your school if you can't practice at home. Good luck with tryouts! :]
