Author's Note: 5 Volleyball Variations to Play in Your Backyard

I can't watch (or play, certainly) a volleyball game without keeping my knees flexed. It was the No. 1 thing my junior high coach preached, and it stuck: You have to be ready to move. And if you stand there with your knees locked, it will be far too late by the time your legs get the message to move.

Of course, now that I'm ready to try out these variations of backyard volleyball (some of which I didn't even know existed until I researched this article), I'll have other techniques to consider, too, like Rockette-style kicks to volley the ball.
