Transcript of Volleyball

Vanessa Yu 1-1
Volleyball is a fun sport that requires a lot of teamwork, skills, an optimistic mindset, quick reactions, communication, and more.
The Various Positions
Setter: This player is always suppose to get the second ball and set it up for a hitter.
What is Volleyball?
You need to know 4 basic skills in order to play a game; serving, bumping, setting, hitting.
This sport requires six people on the court at all times. However, for beach volleyball you play in teams of two.
Left side (Power): Stays at the left side of the court and hits from the outside.
Middle: Always plays front row and stays at the middle position
Right side hitter: Hits at the right side of the court and is usually the backup setter.
Libero: Plays 6 back which means he/she digs all the deep balls in the middle of the back row. He/She is required to wear a different colour jersey during a game.

Whenever you get the point and serve, the whole team has to rotate clock-wise according to the diagram above.

The Objective
Volleyball is a team sport played by two teams on a playing court divided by a net. The objectives of the game are for each team to send the ball over the net attempting to ground it on the opponent’s court, and to prevent the ball from being grounded on its own court. Each team has three hits for returning the ball (in addition to the ball being contacted on the block). Thus every action in the sport should relate to these objectives or “prime directives”.

A rally is initiated by a serve from the right back-row player who hits the ball over the net to the opponent’s court. A player is not allowed to hit the ball twice consecutively, except when attempting a block. The rally continues until the ball touches the ground/floor or goes “out of bounds” by either team.

A point is scored after every rally. When the receiving team wins a rally, it scores a point, gains the right to serve and its players rotate one position clockwise. Rotation ensures that players play at both the net and the back zone of the court (except for the Libero who is restricted to the back row).

A team wins a set by scoring 25 points (21 points in beach volleyball) with a two-point advantage and wins the match by winning the three of a possible five sets (best two of three sets in beach volleyball). In a deciding set, the set is played to 15 points with a two-point advantage. There is no point cap.Review: Basic Objectives of the Game1. ground the ball on the opponent’s court 2. prevent the ball from being grounded on your own court

"Volleyball is 20% skill and 80% mentality."

The Invention of Volleyball
Volleyball was born into the world of sports in 1895 when William Morgan (director of the YMCA in Hollyoke, Mass.) decided to blend elements of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball to create a game for his classes of businessmen which would demand less physical contact than basketball. He created the game of Volleyball. Morgan borrowed the net from tennis, and raised it 6 feet 6 inches above the floor, just above the average man's head.

During a demonstration game, someone remarked to Morgan that the players seemed to be volleying the ball back and forth over the net, and perhaps "volleyball" would be a good name for the new sport.

In 1900, volleyball crossed the border to Canada’s YMCAs and regular inter-city competitions were staged in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto.By the end of World War II, interest in the game had grown so much that the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) was formed as governing committee for more than 120 national federations.
The Olympics
Volleyball was officially accepted into the Olympics in 1964 at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
For the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games Russia won Gold for the men's indoor volleyball match 3-2 against Brazil and Brazil won Gold for the women's volleyball game 3-1 against USA.
Neat Volleyball Athletes
Austin Hinchey (#7)
Height: 6'2"

Having being diagnosed with Congenital Pseudarthosis, a rare brittle bone disease affecting his left fibula and tibia below the knee, when 18 months old, Hinchey has broken his leg seven times and undergone 13 surgeries. When he was 10 years old, it was decided that his leg would be amputated below the knee. After all that, he never imagined that one day he would be capable of playing volleyball for one of Canada’s top varsity teams.
Yoshie Takeshita (#7)
Height: 5'3"

Being only 5'3", Yoshie Takeshita has the nickname: World's smallest and strongest setter. She has a really good vertical and can spike at the height of 280cm! With her as setter, Japan won Bronze in the London 2012 Olympics. She has played for the Japanese women's volleyball club, JT Marvelous, but she recently announced her retirement from it back in September of 2012.

In the London 2012 Olympics, Fabiana Oliveira (Brazil's Libero) makes an amazing save during a game against Korea.
This next video is our very own Griffin game! This is the Senior Boys game from November of 2011. My brother got the kill which ended the extremely intense game and the seniors became city champions!
