This is the first taste of volleyball for primary school kids. We’ve modified the rules of volleyball to make it easy for all to get involved in this game.
This game is played on a badminton court, with a 1.8m net. Teams have 4 players on the court at a time, but we recommend teams of 6 players, with players rotating on and off the court.
The other major change is that contacts which are passed to a team mate may be caught and immediately thrown (rather than hit), with the contact that plays the ball over the net (usually the 3rd contact) MUST be hit. Referees will be asked to encorage a quick second pass. Please progress your team to use the volleyball pass skill as soon as they are able.
We have made some rule modifications t
Years 3 & 4 (we are hoping to make this year level more fast moving by reducing the number of catches):
Years 3 & 4 team have only 2 contacts to return the ball over the net. 1 catch and 1 hit (it must be in that order).
The same player cannot make both contacts
The service is made by the team who won the previous point. The server must be more than 1 metre from the net.
Years 5 & 6 - will be expected to play the normal 3 contacts - catch, pass, hit. . A NEW grade for the better skilled teams is available this Term.
Years 7 & 8 - will be expected to play the normal rules.
Ask our Court Manager if you need help with the rules. We have to be flexible depending on the skill level of those playing. Our aim is to have RALLIES.
It's much more fun.
