Volleyball is a game of momentum and nothing keeps the momentum and intensity on your side of the net like a great block or a great dig on the perfect spike from your opponent or the perfect pass to set up the perfect spike. So that gets back to the old saying that “Great defense wins championships!” Defense can carry your team a long way in a long tournament and even the perfect set starts with a great pass.
Defense is also an attitude, the attitude that “NO BALL HITS THE FLOOR.” Having the skills and the attitude will make you a better defensive player.
