Best Answer

a bump is where you hit the volleyball with your arms by making a fist with one hand and wrapping your other hand around the fist tightly. then you swing your arms up (no higher than your shoulders) so the ball hits and bounces off. the ball should hit about 2-3 inches above your wrist. if you bump off a serve, you typically dont need to swing your arms, it should just bounce off.
