Need a volleyball goal? Here's one.

Work to improve your vertical volleyball jump. Set a goal for yourself to jump higher. 

Why is it important? 

If you can touch ten feet

  • that means you can potentially hit higher above the net and the block than most players do when using good spike approach technique.  
  • Using the correct spike jump technique helps add inches to your ability to get up higher in the air. 
  • You increase your chances of scoring points by being able to reach higher to contact the ball. 
  • When you jump higher you tend to be able to see the open spaces on the opposing team's court better. 
  • As a high jumping hitter, using the correct technique, it becomes easier to move the ball around if you are hitting  from a higher point in the air.  

College coaches love high jumping spikers and blockers. Players in the collegiate game at the Division I and II level have gotten taller, faster and reach higher.

They also jump higher as well, because hitting from a higher point increases the chances of spiking the ball at a sharper angle which makes these spikes potentially harder to dig or defend. 

Watch what it looks like when top Division I players reach and jump higher.

The majority of these players jump and reach a minimum of ten feet high.

Sophia Ewalefo

Congratulations to the newest member of the Dear Volleyball 'Reach The Rim Ten Foot Club', freshman outside hitter on Bishop Gorman's JV team, Sophia Ewalefo.

Sophia set a volleyball goal of being able to touch the basketball rim. 

After learning to swing both arms all the way back before swinging them forward to spike, Sophia went to the park on weekends and worked on correcting her spike approach jump until she was able to reach the rim!

Proud of you Sophia, Congratulations!
