Six Square Bump
To get and retain the King spot through accurate volleyball passing.
-Fundamental Movement Skills:
One volleyball for six players
Eight zone markers--spots...
With eight spots set up six attached squares with spots--each square about 2-3 paces across (three squares are sice-by-side)
Players stand in the six squares.
The players are numbered in order with King to 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.
The King holds the volleyball.
The King bumps the ball into play.
From there, if the ball lands on the floor in someone's square play stops, that player goes to the number 1 square and other players move up one square filling the vacated spot.
It the ball goes out of bounds and lands in no-one's square, the person who last passed it goes to the number one square and other players move up one square filling the vacated spot.
Balls must be passed at least one-metre above the players' heads.
-Questions & Notes:
Making the squares smaller makes it more difficult, and conversely making the squares larger makes it simpler.
