What are some good things to practice before volleyball tryouts?

I have taken a few volleyball camps, but what should I do before tryouts to increase my chances getting on the team.


How do you keep all your energy?

I agree with the others that being able to pass(especially passing serves) and being able to consistently serve overhanded are probably the two major skills freshman level coaches look for.

At this level, you also want to demonstrate that you are an athlete with lots of potential. So get in shape! Run suicides, run stairs, do pushups, situps, wall sits, etc. Anything that will help you show that you can move faster, jump higher, and react to the ball quicker that the others.

Hope that helps!

Volleyball Camp?

Two things coaches really look for is serving and passing.

If you (or your team) can't serve you can't win games.

It's okay if you can't set well - not everyone is a setter - but passing is critical. If you can pass, you will play in games. The serve starts the rally but a good pass get the game going. You should still practice passing with your hands (aka hand passing) but it's a different technique from setting. With a hand pass (H pass) there is more force against the ball, while the set is "softer".

Also coaches don't really look at how well you are conditioned during tryouts but if you can, do some leg exercises (such as leg extensions, squats, walls sits, and definitely running). This will help you be conditioned for passing and will make you stand out as everyone else is huffing and puffing.

Don't forget to watch volleyball and see where each player moves and watch the different rotations so you may have some previous knowledge. Sometimes this will help when, in tryouts, the coach may go through rotations to see how fast you pick it up. observing vball games will help you understand where to go during serve recive, base, defense and freeballs. If you have questions about playing, ask a knowledgable person (or post it here on yahoo.)

Lastly, be a part of the team. Your attitude in volleyball counts for a lot. Watch other volleyball teams especially girls and watch how they are so enegetic and full of team spirit. Where I live everyone can get into the game because there is so much energy and you just pick it up and get excited about the game.
Even if you dn't make the team, go to their games and scope out other teams. Make the coach notice that you are making and effort to get better at volleyball.

I know that's alot of information, but it is what makes you a better player too. If you don't make the team, don't get discouraged, get mad and get better. Joining an off season club team will really help you improve on your game.

Good Luck!

How to u serve a volleyball successfully?

Go in with a great attitude. Be very vocal, and always compliment your teammates or the girls you are playing with. This is what I always look for in my players-a girl who contributes to the spirit of the team. Also, if a coach tells you to work on something, DO IT! they will notice that you're a "coachable player" which I take any day over a girl with natural talent who won't go anywhere.

Good luck!
