A touch or a block in volleyball?

when you jump up to block the ball, when is it considered a "touch" and when is it considered a "block" ?


How are volleyball club tryouts run?

Yes, you would still have 3 three hits to perform on your side.

A "touch" is making contact with the ball and it remains on "your" side of the net.
A "block" is just that, you have blocked the ball and it is returned to the "other" side of the net.

Keep in mind, that if you go up to block an opponents hit, and it appears to have been blocked and remains on "your" side of the net, it is not a "touch", but a "hit" by you, then allowing you to only have 2 additional hits.

Good question! Hope this helps!
See you on the court!

a "BLOCK" is what it is. The ball does not cross over to your side of the net. You blocked it!

a "TOUCH" is also what it is. You touch the ball while blocking, but the ball is likely to be on your side of the net. Block touch does not count as a contact for indoors...so you still have all 3 contacts left. For beach doubles..you have 2 contacts after a block touch.

If you're going up for the block and touch it, but it doesn't go back to the other side, it is still in play and you still have 3 hits. But you have to go up with both hands for it to be a legal block; if you only go up with one, touch it and hit it again, the ref will call a double-hit.

Should My Older Sister Do Volly Ball In Middle School?

when people go up to block, sometimes it still comes over, so the blocker will yell "touch" to warn the team that the ball is changes paths and so that if it goes out they know to play it because a teammate has already touched it. If the ball is contacted above the top of the net, it is considered a block and the team still has three hits (and you can play the ball again yourself to count as one of those three). If you contact the ball below the top of the net, it is considered a touch and you have only 2 more touches.. it confuses some people because the word "touch" is used in different ways
