Different types of balls used for volleyball
On the court, there are 6 players, 3 in the front and 3 in the back. The positions are setting, spiking, bumping and serving. Both the setters are opposite of each other. When our team is receiving, the back setter comes up behind the girl in front of them. The server is in the back outside of the boundary line. When she serves, she runs up to her spot. There is usually a libero which is one of the best players. They wear a different color of jersey than the others.
