Video Transcript: "ADDISON MUSSER: "Hey, my name is Addison from Captain Bill's, and I'm going to show you, how to do a pancake in volleyball. Pancake in volleyball is, when you take your hand and put it onto the ground like a pancake, and the ball lands on top. So when you're try to do a pancake, what you want to do is, you want to lay all the way out, extend your body to its fullest ability and try to aim for your hand to be under the ball, so the ball pops straight up. In indoor volleyball it's very effective, because you have a hard ground, and a lot of times you need to sprawl out for a ball, so when you're sprawling out for a ball, you want to dive, and like I said, stretch out your body, and stretch out your arm, and make sure your hand is under, flat on the ground, and underneath the ball, so the ball pops straight up. And beach volleyball is used every once and a while, but not a whole lot, because the sand is very unstable, and you can't get a good, you can't get your hand on the ground, and have a flat surface to get up the volleyball. And that's how to pancake a volleyball."
