Any game played for fun or professionally has certain rules and regulations that one has to adhere to. Apart from the rules and regulations not being adhered to, there are a few common mistakes that every game player falls prey to. Even when volleyball rules and regulations are taken into consideration and given the best foot forward, the mistakes he or she makes can’t be ignored. These mistakes are spoilers just like the spoilers before any interesting movie that we have been waiting for. These mistakes can be corrected for a better playing of each of the players.

Four Common Mistakes Volleyball Players Make

  1. Volleyball Drills Mistake: Many teams have a number of drills to perform and they do it no doubt! The loophole is that the drills are done for fun and not any focus towards improving the game. This is performed as a routine. Instead, if the drills are done to improve every player’s core strength, it can be one benefitting action.
  2. Making Faster Progress: Rome was not built in a day and even volleyball players can’t be forced to perform instantly. If you do so, they will do it for one day. Under the pressure, they might also get demotivated. Take one step at a time. When you reach the perfection in one style, proceed to the next. So, taking it slow is the solution in this case.
  3. Pass not Paid Attention to: Passing the volleyball ball is an integral part of the game. If the players miss doing that appropriately, you might lose the game eventually. The player giving a pass and the player receiving it should have a good eye contact. This skill can be acquired with practice and if the practice isn’t done rigorously, passing at the right timing to the right person may be a great loss for the team.
  4. Making the Block Obvious: The player from the other team is always ready for a block when you smash the ball. We tend to make the mistake of hitting the ball hard towards the person who is ready to block it. That is psychological. This can be a game winning point if not done in an obvious way. Hit the ball towards the player who is on the left, right or behind the blocker. How do you do that? After you learn the blocker of the opponent team through the body language he or she displays as soon as you are ready to hit the ball over the net.

Buying inappropriate volleyball equipment, definitely, is a mistake but it is our preparation and approach in the game that eventually either lets us win the game or lose it. Which side of the court do you want to be in? If these mistakes are not corrected, even the best equipment of volleyball from Cosco also will not help. The choice is yours. Do you want to be a perfect player or a player with imperfections?
