Players should be taught the following seven fundamental playing patterns as individual skills required in the
actual Volleyball game.
When players master each fundamental playing pattern, they should be introduced to complex training methods
and formation. It will be difficult to attain good team plays in the actual game without the mastery of these seven
basic patterns. The coach should master the theoretical background and scientific approach of each pattern for
effective explanation to players.
