both feet perpendicular to the net.

If you see that your hitter's spike approach is coming toward you - at an angle... more than likely they are going to hit cross court so then you line up in front of them to block their cross court.
You need to line up in front of the hitter and prepare to block the extension of your hitter's arm.

Block Jump

Watching your hitter is very important because this is how you know when you need to time your jump to block. Once you've determined where your hitter is going to block and you've adjusted your body position by side stepping left or right in order to line up in front of your hitter - concentrating on the extension of their arm -wait until JUST as the hitter contacts the ball to spike - then you block jump.

As you jump, Extend Your Hands, Arms And Shoulders over the net or as high as possible in order to grab the ball. You are literally trying to catch the ball as it passes over the net.
Your hands are spread and fingers are wide apart in order to catch or "block" the ball.
Once you contact or Block the ball your ...widespread fingers (with solid rigid wrists) should just deflect the ball back into your opponents court (some say you are presenting a wall with your hands and arms that will deflect the ball back into your opponents court.
