Is an underhand volley forearm pass and bump the same skill?

Kind of,

Bumping and forearm passing have similarities with each other,

Bumping a ball doesn't require any movement with your legs or arms, you just keep your arms in a locked platform until the ball contacts your arm.

Forearm passing involves movement from both arms and legs, to power the pass.

Why do you need coordination in volleyball?

Due to the introvertical side of the game you need coordination to be able to kick the ball hard into the air. Digging or passing the ball is essential in volleyball and in order to pass the ball you need to have good coordination. In other words you can't be tight, you need to be loose.

What are some single person volleyball drills?

Well to start of, make sure you are stretched and ready play and have appropriate shoes and clothes. Next you will need a volleyball, one of my favorite ones is called "x marks the spot." take some duct tape and put x's all over your yard (around 3-6) and start at one X. Next toss the ball up to yourself and pass to another X. Now run over to the other X and pass the ball to another X. Keep doing this until you drop the ball. See how many X's you can accomplish. Tip- hit the ball high!!

Another drill I like isn't really called anything. It's where you pass it to yourself by bumping and setting. To get a good variety set a low then hit a high then set a high then hit a low, do this in whatever combination.

Another drill I like is hitting the ball on the roof (slanted, of course!!) and let it roll back to you then hit it again and again until it drops or you miss.

Another one I like is to set the ball on a high shelf or on a playset or somewhere high and do your approach and try to touch the ball with the middle of your hand where you would hit the ball with when you spike.

Something else that would help you improve hitting and blocking and plays at the net would be jump-roping for three minutes taking a 20 second break. I do this 5 times and I can tell the difference in my vertical jump.

Something else that would work would be to run up and down stairs, jog in place, or there's this one where you go to the bottom step and face the steps like you were going to go up them. Next you have to go to the edge of the last step and stand with pretty much just the top part of your foot on the staris and slowly go down. It's a weird drill but it kinda helps.

What is carrying in volleyball?

Carrying is almost like catching the ball then setting it..a set should be like pushing the ball quickly, not catching it then pushing it... If u take your hand or hands and lift the ball it is considered a carry. Carrying can also be called on a bad tip. If the player's hand starts vertical with the palm facing up and ends either upright or completely flipped over, then a carry should be called.

What is a spike in volleyball?

After a ball has been passed up and set to a hitter, the hitter spikes the ball to the other side. Therefore, a spike is another term for a hit from the hitter.

To spike in volleyball you need to have the right clothes and shoes. Now when the ball is set you need to start your approach when the ball is starting to come down (for right handed hitters do left foot right foot left foot and for left handed hitters do right left right.) Speed up your approach or slow it down depending on how fast or slow the ball is going. When you actually hit the ball you should hit the ball between the middle and top part to put spin on it so it goes down and it's harder to pass. After your done hitting it you need to follow through and land on the balls of your feet. As soon as you land you need to be ready for the block if they do block it.
A spike is a direct hit from a hitter on the other team.
