Three Basic Steps to Volleyball Spiking

Aside

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.
