12. Illegal rotation : This is when players from either team ____________ positions before the ball is contacted on the serve. It results in a point or side-out. 13. Bump : Also called a ____________ pass. This technique is used to receive the serve and pass to the setter to start the offense. It is done by placing the hands together. Players should either place their thumbs next to each other and cup the fingers of one hand or lightly hold the thumb of one hand in the palm of the other. The forearms should face away from the body with the elbows hyper-extended. Feet are slightly wider than shoulder width and body positioned in good athletic stance. 14. Set : Also called an ____________ pass. This technique is used to set up a hitter for a spike. It is done by catching the outside of the ball, just above the eyes with the elbows out. Feet are slightly staggered and about shoulder width apart. 15. Spike : This is the exclamation mark of volleyball. Like the home run in baseball, this is what the offense in volleyball strives to achieve. Hitters should take a position just behind the ____________ meter mark in an athletic stance bent at the waste. Arms should hang down in front of them. As the ball is set, and the four step approach is taken, the arms will come forward on the first step (which is the smallest of the steps), then the arms will start to come back on the second step (which is bigger than the second). As the third step is taken (it is the biggest step), the arms will start to come forward again as the fourth step is taken. The fourth step is parallel with the third step, knees are bent and momentum is built to jump off the ground. As the hitter comes up from the ground, the arms are pulled upward, with the non-hitting hand sighting in the ball and the hitting hand cocked behind the head. The hitter should hit slightly behind the ball and on top of the ball with an open hand driving it down to the floor on the opponent’s side of the

court. The arm on the follow-thru should pass by the hip on the same side as the hitting shoulder. Timing your approach to hit the ball is critical to a well-executed spike. 16. Generally, the correct sequence for an offensive play in volleyball is: Bump, ____________, Spike. 17. The setter should always get the ____________ hit. If they cannot get to the bump/forearm pass, they should call for help from a teammate that is in a better position to set the ball.

    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.
