KiwiVolley Rules

Year 3 & 4

Year 3 & 4 (we are hoping to make this year level more fast moving by reducing the number of catches):

Year 3 & 4 team will now 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.
Year 3 & 4 teams will rotate at the completion of every rally.
The service is made by the team who won the previous point. The server must be more than 1 metre from the net.

Year 7 & 8:

This grade will now not be allowed to catch and throw.They will play full rules. Servers may come onto the court to achieve their serve.

Year 5 & 6

·         Three hits per team.     The ideal sequence  is…………Pass Set Spike

·         The ball can be played with ANY part of the body

·         If a player catches and throws they must remain stationary during the action.

·         Players may not touch the net

·         Players rotate in a clockwise direction

·         A team rotates when the serve has been won off the opposition team.

·         After 5 serves in a row from 1 team that team must rotate

·         A point is scored every rally

·         The score is not as important as the enjoyment of the kids!
