Is a 3rd Meter pipe possible?

The ball will travel 4 m in the air from 1 cm above the net (at the net, plus ball diameter 21cm) to 1 cm in side 3 meter line (the floor). Ball to be hit with a 48.45 degree angle or less to land at 41.55 degree angle. This is or course hitting at 90 degrees on top of the net. But move the ball away from the net at the same angle to find a height that is possible. 25 cm away from net means ball is hit at 2.87 meters 50 cm away from net means ball is hit at 3.09 meters 100 cm away from net means...

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

There is a reason that there is a complete roster of players listed for the tournament. Coaches will give some players a break during one of the weekends. One of the complaints with the World League and World Grand Prix was that you couldn't see all of the stars. With six weeks of travel all across the planet, you can't have all of the stars make each trip. That is why the FIVB now forces teams to release lists of players for each week of matches. Coaches will want to test their younger players ...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Sure NEC has a mathematical chance, but they would have to win six straight matches (okay technically only 4 wins+1 set twice at worst), plus get a little help just to even make the Final 6. If Toyota wins on Saturday, Denso must match or at least win to keep this thing alive. A Toray win in 5 with a Toyota win in <5 sets puts the Queenseis in the Final 3.

Is a 3rd Meter pipe possible?

The hardest part is where the spike is coming from in the distance from the net. If the ball is too close to the net, then it can be roofed easily. So that distance will prevent a ball landing inside the 3 meter line.

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "jetmasters" Are back to back games the norm in J League? Thanks. Quoted from "sitenoise" This is my first year watching, or paying attention anyway, so I can't help with an answer. Yes, they have been the norm, other than some weekends when only one match is played per team, which can be one match only. Men did it earlier this year as two matches in the same venue between 4 teams over 2 days, so a little odd. Saturday games are tripleheader, back to back to ...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" NEC played 17 of their 21 games "at home" this season. This last game is on the road at JT. They're starting Shimamura, Yamaguchi, and Aratani. Lets see what happens. NEC only played four home games. Two in Kawasaki and two in Tokyo, right next to Kawasaki. V.League Schedule (in Japanese) In Japan many matches are played at neutral sites. One team will be considered the home team for those matches. With the new VLeague next year, it will change to more of a home arena se...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Koga's second year was bad both on the club scene and the national team. She did not warrant getting on the Rio roster because she was that bad. Koga is a good all around player and is a key part in the national team, but she may be asked to do too much with her club team. a foreigner would have helped her greatly this year.

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Koga has improved compared to 2 years ago, which was her second season. She went to the national team right out of high school, right into NEC. Too much too fast. That second year was brutal as nothing seemed to work for her. Last year got back on track after not making Olympic team. She will never be a big spiker due to height, but if she can change speeds and put the ball into the corners, she'll be an effective player. Young enough to try and go overseas, but I doubt that she will. The losses...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" Hisamitsu v JT: Speaking of godlike ... Foluke Akinradewo. I understand that MBs usually have a higher kill percentage than OH/OPs, but 15/20? Why not just let her swing 80 times like the other foreigners? See if she gets 60 kills. She's unstoppable. So quick MB comparison, Araki vs. Foluke. Who gets more sets? Foluke because her team looks for her. Araki is good, maybe not as athletic as Foluke. However, if the teams don't run the middle after the first pass (sadly many...

Logan Tom & Destinee Hooker - What Went Wrong?

It then transfers to the team going towards London in 2012. About 20 minutes long. Some people feel that Nicole threw Logan under the bus. I don't think that she did only because she was explaining the dynamics of the team, which includes Logan. Additionall...

Volley players in commercials

Adidas used her because she has signed an Adidas contract. Adidas also signed a long-term deal with USA Volleyball as the uniform supplier for the national teams. Many USA team players now wear Adidas as their preferred shoe, even when not playing with the national team. I am not saying she is a recognized face, but it is part of Adidas making volleyball a target for their sales in the USA. Still many girls do not realize that USA women and men play professionally overseas. Even if you throw Mat...
