A spike in volleyball is an attack strategy used to hit the ball over the net to the opposing team in a way that is difficult to return.
How to spike?
A player approaches the ball using basic four (or three) step approach to generate high forward speed.
A player redirects that speed into the upward energy by jumping up to the air.
Created speed, arm action of the jump and powerful jump are important factors in lifting the player up.
On the top of the reach player performs an arm swing and uses the middle body power to add power to the swing.
A spiker swings the ball over the net to desired target by hitting the ball with the palm of the hand.
