There are two reasons you block in volleyball. The first answer is obvious, to stop the ball from coming on your side of the net. The other reason is to funnel attacks to spots on the court, where your defense should be waiting.

How do you keep my daughter from giving up on volleyball?

That might depend on the reason. If she just doesn't like the game or is not interested in the game, there is probably not much that can be done. If she is frustrated because she doesn't think she is good enough or is not developing fast enough, you can try to reason with her and tell her that it takes a long time to become good at anything, especially a sport as demanding as volleyball. A lot of practice and hard work is involved in becoming a good volleyball player. Encourage her to talk about her play with her coach and teammates. Find some books and/or websites about playing volleyball and allow her to look at them and learn. Check out the TV sports channels to see if any volleyball matches are on and encourage her to watch if there are. Then there might be the situation that she doesn't like her coach or some of her teammates. Again, there probably isn't too much that can be done if this is the case. But, whatever you do, reason with her and support her. Understand what is driving her to make this decision.

Similaraties between volleyball and beach volleyball?

Beach volleyball and indoor volleyball are two completely different sports. In sand volleyball, the ball is not his nearly as hard as it would be if the players were on a court. For this reason, the ball doesn't go as fast and there is no need for six players to be on a sand court. Sand court only requires two players on each side of the net where as indoor volleyball needs six. The only similarities really, are that there is a ball, a net, and the same basic rules (aside from setting). In sand volleyball, if a set is spinning, even a little, you will get called on it, where as court is a little more lenient. So altogether, these two sports are assumed to be the same, but in reality, are completely different.

Why does one volleyball team member wear a jersey of a different color than the rest of the team?

Volleyball VarietyThe wearer of a different-colored jersey is called the libero. This is a defense specialist, who is really good at passing and digging. A libero can't serve in high school volleyball, but he can serve in college volleyball. The reason why his shirt is a different color is to identify him when he goes on and off the court. A libero can also "sub" for anyone on the court.

What are the Serving rules of volleyball?

Well, the obvious one is that you have to get it over the net and that it has to stay inside the two red bars that mark in-bounds, you must not step over the line until the ball is successfully out of your reach and in highschool or professional volleyball you have to jump when hitting it, middle school volleyball you may jump but it is not necessary. That's all I know, if they are incorrect for some reason feel free to question it.
