Can anybody tell me some of the volleyball rules?

I'm thinking of trying out 4 the team this year. Even tho I hear they teach u the rules and how 2 play, I wanna already know some of the main rules and not look like as big of an idiot @ tryouts. Can somebody tell me some of the main things I will need 2 know? Is it worth it 2 try out even tho I'm scared I won't make the team?


Jeltsin Cup volleyball (women)?

You'll never know unless you try, as the saying goes. As for rules and terminology:
- Ace: when a service point is earned when the other team touches the ball only once or misses on the serve
- Dig: defend a spike (stop the spike from hitting the ground)
-Kill: A point from a spike
- Block: preventing a spike from being executed by the other team
- Sideout: gain posession of the ball (meaning, get your team to serve)
- Points/scoring: for JV, there are 3 rounds in one game. You win the game if you win 2/3. Rally scoring, up to 25 in the first two rounds, and if it is a tie 1/1, the third round only goes up to 15 points. In rally scoring, you gain a point if you get aces, kills, or the other team is the first team to let the ball touch the ground
- At the end of the first round, the teams switch court sides.
- Hits: Each team is allowed three hits, the third hit must get the ball to the other side. If you exceed 3 hits, the other side gets a point.
- The same person can't hit the ball twice (consecutively), if so, a point goes to the other side, and so does posession.
- However, if you block a spike, and the ball comes down your side, you are allowed to hit it, and it won't count as a double hit.
- Flip a coin to determine who serves and which side you get.
- You cannot touch the net at any time, but you can play the ball off the net, and it will be legal, as long as it's not the fourth hit
- Your hands need to be closed, and don't ever hit the ball with your palms unless it's a spike.
Well...this is all I have the energy for right now, I hope it helps and good luck with tryouts!
