To score points by making the ball land on the opponent’s court

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Manipulative Send

    • Strike​

    • Set

  • Manipulative Receive​

    • Block​

-Equipment List:

  • Volleyball court with a net

  • One volleyball


-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Place 6 or more participants on either side of the net (three males and three females)


  • Determine which side to serve from--all serves will be taken from this side.

  • Rather than players rotating just on their own side, the player on the front right side of the court does not rotate to the service spot but rather goes under the net and plays front on the left side (see picture). The player on the other side at the back left side rotates to the other side of the net and is the next server. The ball is only served from 1 side, and when the serving side fails to get a point everyone rotates and a new server takes over.

  • The server stands behind the back-court line and serves the ball into the opposition’s court.

  • The game continues using regular volleyball rules with the exception that 5 different players must pass the ball to each other before the sixth player attacks the ball by hitting it over the net. A player:

    • May not carry or throw the ball.

    • Cannot touch the ball 2 times in a row.

    • Cannot touch the net. 

  • If the ball goes out-of-bounds off a player, lands on the court, or is not returned successfully with 3 passes, the other team scores a point and serves the ball.

  • Spiking:

    • Women can spike from anywhere on the court.

    • Men must spike from behind the attack line.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety considerations: 

    • Encourage players to be aware of each other (heads up, call the balls they are going for) so they do not bump into each other. Be sure poles are padded.

  • Instructional tips:

    • Players will need to communicate to each other to determine who still needs to pass the ball. Remind players to spread themselves out on defence to fill the court and to look for the open areas on offense to score.

  • Variation:

    • Ten Pass: Allow players to contact the ball more than once (but not twice in a row) per side. All players on the offensive team must have contacted the ball at least once. Allow as many as 10 passes before the ball must go over the net 

  • As a cool-down:

    • Great as a cool-down but limit the serve to an underhand serve and the eventual attack to an overhead pass (set) or forearm pass (bump); no spikes permitted.
