Why do we love volleyball? (part 2)
What’s next? And then the pitching reception becomes so good, and the point guard’s skill grows to such a level that you can already organize variety in attacks: attack not from the fourth and second zones, but connect the central one in the third number, the diagonal player from one, the pipe from the five-six. And the point guard himself becomes very dangerous – if left without a block, he can perform the “discount” with his left hand as much as he did not even dream to beat a couple of years ago. The skill of blockers is growing, but new combinations are used to confuse them …
At the same time, the understanding of the processes on the court is growing more and more – everyone not only sees their neighbors, but also automatically tracks the opponent’s movements (you need to feel where the opponent has a “hole” on the court to throw the ball there in an emergency).People feel each other’s psychological state, are able to instantly cheer up neighbors on the site with one or two words, which instantly raises the efforts of all participants, which means the level of the game. And everyone enjoys a beautiful game.
By the way, I’ll give one piece of advice on how to quickly go this long way from shoving the ball to a beautiful and interesting volleyball. We must always remember why we gathered. To play, not win! It is important. For example, it is better for an attacker not to push the ball somehow into the corner of the opponent’s court, where they won’t be able to take it, but to hit it directly at the receiving player. It does not matter to the attacker – in both cases he has to work on the accuracy of the direction of the strike, and the receiver is much more useful to learn how to handle a strong attack. This does not mean that the skating rink under the back line is illegal – everyone needs to train to take optimal positions in order to receive both the discount for the net, and a strong blow to the center of the site, and an attack into the corner. But we must be aware of what is being done and why.
Let’s go back to self-improvement. What is going on inside the player? Its efficiency on the site is gradually increasing. And if there is a bad team around, then all the expended forces (and the further you go, the more energy you have to spend) return triple. You need to understand this subtle point: for example, in order to perform a high-quality reception of a strong serve, you have to spend a lot of energy – not just put your hands in some way, but clearly move the body, correctly positioning your legs and arms, just bring the ball to the point guard. If the team does not know what to do with a good fine-tuning, then this looks like a waste of energy. But if after that the opponent’s block is forced to jump many times, and the skill of the point guard allows him to bring his attacker to a single block, then it’s not in vain. After that, I want to become even more effective, it brings pleasure and gives new strength.
What exactly is happening, what is expressed in the increase in efficiency? The player becomes faster, stronger, more precisely, better guesses the further development of events, therefore more often he chooses the right position. And it is very well felt inside, it brings joy!
Play volleyball! This is a useful, healthy, interesting, psychological and safe game that gives a very useful skill – the ability to achieve new heights (which is important – in several directions at once). Volleyball is a focused work that leads to progress. Namely, such work is sorely lacking in all areas of life.
