What is reading the game?
Reading the game is the ability for you to see what is happening with the other team in terms of both court position and body position in order to anticipate a most likely course of action. This anticipation will allow you to move yourself and your body in the correct position prior to the ball even starting to move to your side of the court.
“Learn to anticipate, read the before and at contact actions, and remember the flow and tendencies under stress of opponents....and do it at the right place and time, the better we all will be.”
–John Kessel (USA Volleyball’s Director of Sport Development, coaching since 1971 at the collegiate level or above, including Women’s U.S. Open titles in 1986 & 87. A sought after international lecturer, he has conducted 1-2 week seminars in all 50 states, and in over 30 Nations; In 1995, Volleyball Magazine’s special Centennial issue named him one of the 50 most important people in the sport in the past 100 years.)

Does not teach you how to play real volleyball
The entire set up of the app is very unrealistic to the actual game. The simulation has you going for balls that your position (no matter which one) shouldn’t be taking. The outlook of the person’s body you are in is also very strange and hard to comprehend. Learning how to control one’s movement in time can be very difficult as well. My experience was frustrating.
This game is really amazing down to the fact that you can't play. It's great that you can pick your height, team uniform color, and etc but you can't play the game. When you get to the part that says "choose your position", it doesn't allow you to press the position and to be able to play the game. Wish there was some way to resolve that...
