As in any mobile volleyball team game, there is a basic stance, from which the basic game actions begin, such as: attack, block, reception, movement, serve. Consider a volleyball rack using the example of, of course, beautiful Russian girls volleyball players. The stance can be low, medium and high. The main attention in the stand should be paid by the player to the preparation for receiving the ball and to think over his further actions depending on his playing position and playing situation.
In the stance for the greatest readiness to receive the ball, the player should bend his knees and place them slightly wider than the shoulders, or much wider with a low stance for greater stability. Hands should be at the ready raised in front of the face or over the head, there are often cases when players, with their hands down or distracted, received a strong blow to the face with the ball.
