Volleyball Slang Terms | Volleyball Lessons


A lot of popular slang with beach volleyball
revolves around the hit, the offense. You can have a pokey, the cobra, a roll shot,
a hit or a spike. There is also defensive terms, you dig a ball,
you bump a ball, you pass a ball. If you fall in the sand, as if there was a
divot in the sand, sometimes we say there was a sand snake. If you fall when you are running for the ball,
sometimes we say the sand shark got you. When you set a ball with your hands and it
doesn’t spin we say it’s clean or sometimes we call it butter. If you hand-set a ball and it’s not clean
or it spins sometimes you say cheddar, or even margarine. When you’re blocking a ball we call it roofing. If you dig a ball off the side of your arm,
they call it a chicken wing. If you get hit in the face with a ball it’s
called a facial or a six pack. David Fisher and Jack Quinn coined a term
called ‘wear it’ when someone hit a ball and it hits off part of your body. When you’re saving a serve and you pass it
in such a way your partner can’t get it we call that a shank. Sometimes if your feeling flippant you’ll
say “Shank you” to the server. When you run after a ball or bring it back
to the court, it’s called shag or shagging the ball. Those are some popular terms for beach volleyball.

    everyones talking about her abs, so me too, they are nice, strong, but over developed in proportion to the rest of her body, long term can cause medical issues like different types of body and joint pains

    but yea id rather have those abs than none at all
