The right fall technique in volleyball

The athlete must be able to fall correctly, this ability can prevent many injuries – both minor bruises and bruises, as well as more serious fractures, dislocations and subluxations, bursitis. In general, a fall is an extreme case in volleyball and applies only if the ball cannot be taken in any other way. It is not worth it to abuse frequent falls – this is not only harmful to the body, but also will not bring good results in the game.

In volleyball, you can “correctly” fall behind the ball in two ways.

fall in volleyball

A fall on the chest with a roll on the stomach (in common people called “fish”).The athlete hits the ball, and then falls forward, softening his touchdown with his hands and, as it were, “slipping”. In this case, the legs should be torn off the floor, otherwise it will look like “the player fell forward.”
Roll, fall to the side. This type of fall can be done either to the right or to the left when the ball is very close to the floor. The arm should be fully extended and remain in that position. Then the athlete performs a somersault over his shoulder. Which hand should be used? It is by no means necessarily “below” when falling on its side, although in most cases it turns out that way. The player must be guided by the game so that the hand movement returns the ball to the field. When playing in 1 zone, the ball from the sideline should be returned to the game with the right hand, while playing in 5 zone – with the left hand, respectively. This applies to both righties and lefties.

A small remark to the first type of falls. It happens that a volleyball player has already fallen for some reason, and the ball is approaching him and the floor. In this, you should put your hand between the floor and the ball with your open palm up. The ball should bounce off of it and return to the game. Such a technique should be practiced by athletes in training.

When practicing the technique of correct fall, all movements and elements must first be carried out at a slow pace and only after you understand the technique and the point is to start acceleration.
