How can I block better?


If you're playing a hitter who connects well enough to be able to hit a variety of angles, you'll need to cover more area with your block. Since you're up there by yourself, you'll need to get tricky at times. Try setting up as if you were going to block line, thus making your opponent think the angle shot is open. Since the angle is generally their best shot, they'll usually fall for the bait. At the last possible second, move your arms quickly into the angle lane, and take that shot away. Sometimes, you'll be able to stop several of those shots in a row before your opponent figures out what you're doing.

they mean because its a single block, you dont have anyone next to you like you would in indoor ball, your partner in beach is behind you waiting for the shot

Marlen, they meant that a lot of the time, the front row middle is blocking by themselves (They also "help" block with the power and the setter)

The site needs more info. It helps me because Pipkin Middle School needs to show how good of a school it is. People say it has a bad sports team so we need to show them that we have good sports teams. But I need to show school sprit over the internat. It is good to show school spirt over the internat and at school games to. It really helps with school spirt.

Its a nice tip but the fact that you try to fake a line block then you swiftly switch to an angle block,it may end up mostly on a block out or brush out.
