Unformatted text preview: Explanation of Activity: For the first activity the students will be throwing the ball from just behind the service line and they will use a technique very similar to the volleyball attack/kill. Their dominant arm will bring its elbow back while the other points to the target. This activity will make them understand how important body positioning is and how the ball will fly. For the second activity the students will be in teams and they would have to work together to get the most amount of points possible, if they get it in either far corners of the service box they will receive 3 points, 2 points if it goes anywhere in the service box and 1 points if they get it over the net.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
