In the game of volleyball, the act of digging describes a pass of a hard-driven ball from the other team. In other words, digging is the act of stopping the ball from hitting your side of the court after the opposing team has either spiked or served it to your team.
Digging is a prolific term of volleyball jargon in both the indoor and beach volleyball communities. Additionally, the term has gained some entry into the international lexicon through video games that use the term in their title.
Digging is an essential volleyball skill that volleyball professionals such as Eric Fonoimoana, Stein Metzger, Sara Shimt, and Anthony Medel all employ in their technique repertoire.
A dig is when the ball is very low and the player still is able to hit it, it is called "digging the ball". Most times when digging the ball the player will "dive" for the ball.
A dig is pretty much a dive or getting down on your knees to hit a ball.
In volleyball, a dig is when a back-row player passes up a ball that has been hit by a player on the other team across the net with their forearms
A dig is when the libero (back row specialist) or other back row player passes the ball up (also known as a bump) after someone hits (or spikes) the ball at them
Keep a low ball in play by not letting it hit the ground. Usually, the ball is very low to the ground when it is hit.
Passing a ball from an attack or spike
A dig is when you dive down onto the floor to get the volleyball.
There is no dig in netball. But there is a dig in Volleyball
In volleyball anyone can dig, usually those who dig are passers or severs, not setters. So if you back-row or running a 6-2 passers dig the ball
The most important thing about a Volleyball dig is that you can get the ball from anywhere on the court by sliding on your knee's and also just by having a simple technique. The best technique is to squat when you are under the ball with your legs shoulder width apart, like your sat on the toilet and bounce up when you have contact with the ball. weave your fingers between each other or clench two fist's and line your thumbs on top. The best contact with the ball for a accurate dig would be just above your wrists. I hope this helped :)
