My new Got Balls Volleyball T Shirt by Volleybragswag has a mix of volleyball slang words and the plural form of "ball" to make new funny clever definitions
In March 2022, I created a new twist on the Got Balls volleyball t shirt concept.
By combining funny sounding but often used and very popular slang words and volleyball jargon with the plural form of the word "ball" I came up with new volleyball related definitions ...that will make you laugh....because they're true.
Why add an "s" to the word ball? For fun...and because we rarely practice with one ball...we usually practice and play with two or more...sooo there's that....
A tomahawk in volleyball is the way to contact the ball over your head while holding both of your fists together...actually one inside the other...while you hit the ball so its launched back up in the air to another player or over the net.
According to the game rules, each team is only allowed to contact the ball three times with the third contact being the one that sends the ball over the net.
The third contact can be a pass, set or hit in any form as long as it cleanly goes over the net and in the opposing court without committing a foul.
When a hitter gets a kill on the court other players will describe the hitting action as "Man he/she put that ball away" which translates into "Man they hit that ball really really hard to get that point."
Or a backrow player will yell at their front row hitter..."Dude PUT that ball away!" meaning "hit that ball hard enough so neither the opposing block nor their defense can replay it for a point."
A deep dish is a type of setting form which happens when a player, instead of forming a triangle above their forehead and using that to push the ball back into the air to set it, allows the ball to drop lower around their nose, chin or even chest before "reversing the direction of the ball" by pushing it back in the air....
...and allowing the ball to go deeper than normal before setting it in the air...
You know what a "double" is right? It usually happens when you try and set the ball and instead of pushing the ball into the air in one motion..you contact the ball twice ...which is a foul that the referee has to whistle for.
It is called by a referee because your body made contact with the ball twice, before someone else was able to contact the ball.
This action according to official volleyball rules is illegal and is called a fault.
If a hitter spikes a ball to a defender on the opposing team who digs it with her elbows bent so the ball hits her forearm and then hits her bicep before the setter has a chance to touch it, then that's a double hit.
The ball contacted the defender twice before any other teammate could touch it.
