Protective volleyball training sleeves encourage players to discover their love for the game and develop their skills without hesitation or fear of the sting of the volleyball. Today, kids are still complaining to their coaches or teachers about reddened or pink arms asking to sit out of from bumping the volleyball, there is science to support their complaints. Children have less muscle mass in their forearms making the nerve endings that run along the Radius bone more sensitive. As players mature, the sting is more prevalent in women as they do not develop as much muscle mass in their forearms as men.
How to correctly bump pass in volleyball with the aid of the Arm2Aim VBALLSLEEVE:
• Set the Platform - The platform is the area between your wrists and your elbows where you make contact with the ball. This is also the colored "Target Area" on the VBALLSLEEVE.
• Place your thumbs down on top of your grasped hands, pointing forward. Make sure your thumbs are lined up right next to each other and at exactly the same height. Do not cross your thumbs.
• Tilt your wrists down toward the floor.
• With your arms locked straight and your hands at waist height, angle your elbows slightly inward as much as you can without changing your hand position. This will expose the flat side of your inner forearm and create your platform.
