Yes. On a left handers approach your final step is with your right foot which opens your body up to hit and follow through with your left hand. So a righty using a LH approach is taking away power and hitting options.

How many seconds does your approach have to be to spike a volleyball?

Your approach isn't measured in seconds, its a tool to help you get the best jump that you can to hit the ball. There are different types of sets that you can be set, so it all depends on those. If you get a really quick, low set like a "quick 1" for middle hitters, you have to speed up your approach. If you get a high set like a "4" for outside hitters, you have to slow up your approach. Does that make sense? Always remember "left, right, left" if you are right handed and "right, left, right" if you are left handed. Volleyball is all about timing. It just takes practice and experience...keep working at it!

Different ways to serve a volleyball?

There are several types of way to serve a volleyball. The main kinds are the float, top spin, jump float, and jump top spin. A float ball is when your ball is in the air and it beings to move back and forth. A float is a really good serve to have and is very hard to pass. The top spin, of course, is when your ball spins in the air. This serve is not as good as a float but is still a good one to know. All that a jump serve means is that you add a simple approach and then you serve the ball while you are in the air. Two basic approaches are the two step and three step. A three step approach if you are right handed is just the way you would hit. Left, right, left. If you are left handed, right, left, right. A two step approach is the last two steps of a hitting approach. Right handed people are right, left. Left handed is left, right. Hope this helps :) ~Jordy

What does footwork mean in volleyball?

Footwork in volleyball is a player's, in this case a hitter's, approach to spike a volleyball. There are multiple approaches, two of the most common are the three and four step approaches. Three step approach. If you are a right handed hitter, you do a three step approach (left, right, left) as follows - step with your left foot, step with your right foot, and the last step brings the left foot to the ground slightly ahead of the right foot. The final jump is done with a two foot take-off. The tempo of the three steps is slow, quick, quick. The four step approach is typically used by outside hitters and uses the same sequence but adding one more step at the start - right, left, right, left (slow, slow, quick, quick).

Well from what I am thinking about. RS is an abbreviation of Right Side, which is a position in volleyball.

This is also where most left handed hitters are placed to hit.
