Acting as part of a team requires that you learn good sportsmanship and how to work well with others. Playing on a team also teaches the value of hard work and fairness.
Volleyball is a competitive and physically demanding sport that depends on how well you accept defeat, as well as how graciously you win.
Volleyball is an Olympic team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules. Play proceeds as follows: a player on one of the teams begins a 'rally' by serving the ball (tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or arm), from behind the back boundary line of the court, over the net, and into the receiving team's court. The receiving team must not let the ball be grounded within their court. The team may touch the ball up to 3 times, but individual players may not touch the ball twice consecutively. The ball is usually played with the hands or arms, but players can legally strike or push (short contact) the ball with any part of the body.
The game continues, with the first team to score 25 points by a two-point margin awarded the set. Matches are best-of-five sets and the fifth set, if necessary, is usually played to 15 points. (Scoring differs between leagues, tournaments, and levels.
