How to Play Volleyball : How to Dig a Spike in Volleyball


Hey, my names Addison from Captain Bills and
I’m going to teach you how to dig a spike in volleyball. Spiking or hitting is used
most of the time in order to score a point. A lot of times players will jump above the
net to spike the ball down so when you’re spiking it down you want to try to get behind
the ball and dig it up so that your team can score the next point. Probably the most important
part of digging a spiking volleyball is to get your trunk or your, your waist behind
the ball. You want your, your waist to face where you want to pass the ball. So if the
ball, if the spike is coming from my left side I’m not going to want to dig facing the
opposite way. Or perpendicular to the spiker. I’m going to want to face exactly where the
ball is coming form so that I can pass it off my forearms while absorbing the trajectory
of the ball. So while I absorb the power from the hitter I’m going to make the easier to
come up off of my hands for the setter to have the next ball. And that is how to dig
a spike in volleyball.

  1. i so aprecitate you for posting this. This is EXACTLY what i needed. i have to teach my class tomorrow and i have to teach on digging and i wanted to see exactly what it looked like. this has helped a lot. thanks 🙂

  2. Correction, you do not want to face where the ball is coming from.
    You want to face where you setter will be. If you play left side and the opposing right side player is hitting line at you, you do not want to face staight forward at the net, which is "where it is coming from" always have you shoulders and feet set turning the ball into the court.

    If you face the hitter you will send the dig back at the hitter which on a line hit at you is going to be away from your partner as he releases.

  3. @kronvision yep. you are exactly right. your body should be positioned towards the target, or the setter when digging or passing.

  4. Couldnt agree with you. i was also kinda
    disappointed on there program. Good thing
