We'll learn about all the statistics you need to know on offense and defense, including:

We learned about how teams score points. Scorers note who scored each point during the game.


When a player scores on a serve, it's called an ace. Each ace is marked in the stat sheet.


The pass that comes before a point is called an assist. The statistics go to the player that made the pass.


Each time a player tries to make an attack it is marked as an attempt.


When an attempted attack scores a point it is called a kill.

Hitting Percentage
