The Dance of Volleyball

I spent the weekend at the Far Westerns No Dinx Volleyball tournament. My daughter, the Princess, started playing competitive volleyball this year.
If your vision of volleyball was like mine a few years ago, there are six players on the court, three in front, three in back, and the right back corner player serves. The players stand in their spots, and only move when the ball comes to them, in order to get the ball over the net.

It turns out there is quite a bit more to competitive volleyball. They have plays. They have moves. They have rotations. Their movement on the court is a different kind of dance. And I have to say it is beautiful and atheletic and amazing.

If you've never seen competitive volleyball, take a look at this video and watch the Dance of Volleyball.

Mysti--watching her skills grow and watching the progression from standing still to literally being in constant motion has been fascinating. I had no idea :)
