-Setting Up:

  • Divide a regular volleyball court into 4 courts. Regular net divides court into 2. Put up 2 other nets to divide the 2 courts in half.

  • Divide players into 4 teams of 6 players. Explain the rules. Each team goes to 1 of the 4 courts. Decide which team will serve first with a coin toss.


  • There are several rules affecting the hitting of a ball.

  • Each side is permitted a maximum of 3 hits per side.

  • 1 player cannot hit it twice before another player contacts the ball. The ball must be struck and not pushed or thrown.

  • A player may not contact the net when playing the ball (attacking or blocking).

  • Failure to execute hits and blocks legally will result in an other team getting the ball for service and the offending team gaining 1 point.

  • Upon one team's lose of service rotate the service through the four courts.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety Considerations

    • Pad all the posts so players do not hurt themselves should they run into a post.

  • Teaching Tips

    • To make it easier for younger or less skilled players use a beach ball that is very light and stays afloat easier and longer.
