Volleyball Positioning Techniques – Resting and Ready Positions – Lesson 1

  • September 18, 2019

In this video, Pakmen Volleyball lead coach Jessy Satti covers the fundamentals of the resting and the ready position in volleyball.

He notes that in the resting position, the feet should be pointing forward and shoulder width apart. The knees should be bent and the hands on the thighs. It is important to keep the shoulders ahead of the knees to promote weight forward.

When switching to the ready position, the arms shoot forward, ahead of the body.

A key mistake is standing up when going from the ready position to the resting position.
