Volleyball Cut Shot Explained
Volleyball has developed over the years into a fast paced and aggressive game, but the importance of subtly and strategic play has not been abandoned completely. The cut shot is a perfect example of how to utilize strategy and technique when scoring in the game of volleyball. A properly executed cut shot will place the volleyball where the opponent is not. However, a perfectly executed cut shot will make your opponent think you are coming up for an aggressive hit, forcing them to move up to the net for a block, when in reality you are coming up for the cut shot, putting the ball over your opponents head and into the court for a point.
