Volleyball is a team sport consisting of six players in each team. It is a challenging sport requiring high levels of team spirit, speed, power, endurance and concentration. A team can touch the ball no more than three times on its side of the net before passing the ball to the opponent team and the opponent team can try to block the opponent's spike as the ball crosses the net. The team scores a point if the opponent team fails to return the ball. The players rotate their positions clockwise every time when they score a point from the opposite team.
