Six basic volleyball skills?

forearm pass
n. one of the six basic volleyball skills. It is a ball-handling skill
that a player uses to legally contact the ball at a level below the
waist using the forearms as the contact surface. See also bump.

serve
n. one of the six basic skills, used to put the ball in play. It is
the only skill controlled exclusively by one player.

Above are two of the six basic volleyball skills, could anyone post
details of the others please?

Richard.

You forgot one -

Dig (v.) - To sacrifice one's body to prevent the ball from touching
the floor, no matter what obstacle must be collided with bone-breaking
force (the floor, standards, players, tables, officials, chairs,
spectators, concrete barriers, et. al.).

For what it's worth, I believe that there are really only five.  "Defense"
is really a combination of blocking and passing.  As suggested by another
contributor, "Digging" falls into the same category; the purpose of a "dig"
is to produce a controlled pass.  It should be noted that mastering any of
the five requires understanding of player positioning, teamwork, physics,
strategy and a few other aspects that go beyond the basic ball-handling
technique.

My view is, more and more, that there are certainly MORE than six skills.
There are a number of "variations on a theme" (skill) and these variations
probably should be considered and taught separately. For example, the
normal "run of the mill" 6 O'Clock between the knees pass is not the same
as a drop step, side pass which is different from an over the shoulder,
emergency spin pass or a run-through.  Certainly a one legged attack is
not the same as a two legged takeoff and a hetter needs both.  In any
case...I didn't want to muddy the waters, but thought I'd throw this in.

I agree.  If you include the term "defense" you should include the term
"offense".

I.e. Defense = the skills involved in preventing the ball from hitting the
floor or crossing the plane of the net to include blocking, rolling,
diving, sliding, etc.

Offense = the skills involved in getting past the opponents defense to
include "plays", attack variation, "seeking", smack talking, etc.

You all forgot the most common/offensive skill, the *** and moan. I
don't think I have played a day when that skill wasn't in the rep of
some players.  If they spent all of the B & M time on the other six
+skills, we would surely be a world force by now.  We could add another
USAV division:  B, BB, A, AA, Open, B&M.

Just kidding around

To do it well, "B and M" is an advanced skill, although it is found at
every level--Jerry Gregg
