1. Introduction to Volleyball

Volleyball, one of the ball sports in which the court is rectangular with high nets spaced in the middle, and both sides (six players per side) occupy one side of the court and the players hit the ball over the net with their hands. Volleyball uses a ball that is similar in size to a soccer ball.

The sport was invented in the United States in 1895 in Holyoke, Massachusetts, by a sportsman named William Morgan. Initially, volleyball was called Mintonette. Initially, volleyball was called Mintonette, and in 1896, Professor Halstead proposed changing it to Volleyball, the modern international common name for the game, based on the characteristics of the game. The official ball at that time had a circumference of 25 to 27 inches (63.5 to 68.8 cm) and a weight of 9 to 12 ounces (255 to 346 grams). The materials and production process of modern international competition balls have changed considerably, but the size of the ball is still about the same as before.

2.Competition Rules

Player rules

Players are usually not required to master all six skills - serve, first pass (serve receive), second pass (lift, hold), spike, net, and save - but usually specialize in one or more of these, depending on the team's strategy. The most common position assignments consist of three positions: attacker (divided into a primary and secondary attacker), secondary passer, and libero (a player who specializes in defense). In order to effectively block the opponent's attack and bounce the ball back to the opponent at a steep angle and at high speed before the opponent has enough time to react, a taller player with good bounce is generally used as the attacker.

The second pass rusher is responsible for organizing the team's offense, and is responsible for getting the ball to the point where the tackler is best suited to spike it on the second pass. The second pass rusher must be able to combine with the tackler in a variety of ways to disrupt the opposing defense. Quickness of movement and precision of passing are essential qualities of a secondary pass rusher. A good lifter can string together the offense, and must understand the characteristics and habits of the attackers on the team, keeping a clear mind and thinking during the game. Therefore, a good second setter is the soul of the team.

Libero: A libero is a player who specializes in defense and is responsible for receiving and spiking the ball (ball saving). The libero usually has the fastest reflexes and the best first pass technique on the team. Since the libero is not required to attack or defend at the net (not allowed by the rules), it can be handled by a shorter player with good first pass skills. A player designated as a free man in a game may not play any other position. There is no limit to the number of substitutions a free agent may make, but a dead ball must be placed between two substitutions, and only by the person who was substituted off the field. The substitution must be made before the referee blows the whistle to signal the serve. Specifically, a free man may substitute a different player twice in the same inning. The libero may not enter the game first before the start of each inning and must wait for the second referee to check the starting player before making a substitution into the game.

Sub-attacker: A sub attacker is a player who often plays a fast attack near the second setter. The secondary attacker specializes in blocking the net because they must block the fast attack from the opposing secondary attacker and must move quickly from the middle to the sides to organize a double-team net. The secondary attacker is usually the tallest player on the team, and requires good defensive skills.

Main Attacker: The main attacker is the player who attacks from a position close to the marker. Since most passes to the primary attacking position are high balls, the primary attacker tends to use long runs, sometimes even from the sideline. On offense, the attacker usually scores with a strong snap, but sometimes is required to disrupt the opponent's defense with slanting runs and quick attacks. The primary attacker also needs to master the first pass technique, as they usually serve as a second pass point other than the libero when the opponent is serving the ball. A right-handed primary attacker is best suited to attack from the 4 (left side of the front row), while a left-handed primary attacker is best suited to attack from the 2 (right side of the front row).
