== College Volleyball == hi jules love sky

College volleyball is an option for those who are interested in playing after they are done with their high school and club team. There are approximately 330 NCAA Division 1 teams, along with 300+ NCAA Division 2 teams, and over 400 NCAA Division 3 teams that someone can play for. Scholarships are available to athletes who attend schools with financial programs in place. Approximately 13 people on the roster receive scholarships every year depending on the school they attend.

Not done: as you have not requested a specific change in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 13:18, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Add move "Viper" to list of skills in Volleyball. It is an extremely aggressive and deadly move that is harming thousands. People need to be aware of the danger it poses to youth volleyball and professionals alike. Here is a link to a website I send my players to for volleyball assistance. Here is a very general description of this orochimare-esque move:

The Viper, also know as twin fang hit, is a Kerri Walsh inspired move that utilizes the pointer and middle finger both straightened towards the ball but bent at a 90 degree angle in order to provide a predictable surface for the ball to bounce off of. This move, if performed correctly, can be quite deadly leaving your opponents crippled by the Viper's poison. If done correctly the ball should bounce just above the incoming apex of any blockers jump into the area directly behind them. Due to it's sneaky placement, the blocker and other teammates are unable to return the ball. This places the ball in a position where the incoming blocker is too high up to reach the ground and react. It's position also creates a dilemma where if his teammates make an attempt they could seriously injure both the player in the air and on the ground, thus the deadly Viper comes into play. Overall, a very deceptively aggressive move that isn't quite the friendliest, but extremely effective when in need of a point.

I'm not sure a GoDaddy site would be considered a reliable source. Stickee (talk) 00:48, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

I can see why you'd think that, but considering the urgency of the request I believe it is prudent that we get this information to the masses as quickly as possible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JasonVB95 (talkcontribs) 15:19, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
