Jon Stanley teaches kids three important steps to spiking a volleyball in his Hawaii Jr. Volleyball clinics.
Step 1: Approach – This includes the basic footwork for hitting.
Step 2: Jump – The power of your jump can lead to the power of your spike. Stanley uses the aid of a trampoline to help kids get elevation out of their jumps.
Step 3: Arm Swing – The correct arm swing leads to more powerful spikes and prevents injury down the line. Stanley takes time to help kids with their arm swings.
