    Hi, I am Lindsey Lampert with Northern Virginia Volleyball Association and today I am teaching to you how to play volleyball. Right now, I am going to show you how to hit. The main thing when you are hitting is to contact the ball at the highest point possible. Your arms will be in a bow and arrow type position, to prepare you for your swing. In order to do this, you are going to be jumping on the sand it is a little bit harder than indoors, so I am going to have my two demonstrators stay on the ground to show you the proper technique to hit the ball. Notice, how they are reaching and snapping high, they are trying to hit the ball at the highest point of contact. Now, I am going to show you how to dig.
