Block signals
Signals are meant to coordinate a strategy between players. One index
finger behind the back means the blocker will take the line parallel to
the outside of the court while the player at the back covers the diagonal
angle. Two index fingers means the blocker takes the diagonal while
the player at the back covers the shot down the line. Other signals are
established to implement t ctics which are meant to exploit the
opponents’ weaknesses.
