-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety considerations:

    • In order to prevent ankle injuries do not allow players to jump. Be sure posts are properly padded. 

  • Instructional tips: 

    • Have a few extra balloons on hand in case some break. 

  • Variations:​

    • Short Balloon Volleyball: Play this game the same way as Short Volleyball but using 1 balloon instead and only 1-2 players per side. Service can be delivered from anywhere in the small court but must be hit up (no spike serves). 

  • As a cool-down:

    • Limit the number of balloons to 1 or 2 per 4 participants to reduce the activity level.
