Introductory Information 

  • Prior to the start of play, an attempt is made to create competitive teams by Board Members or other volunteers.
    • After initial assignments, adjustments to team personnel will be made if necessary
  • Usually all players, except the setter, receive serves and play defensive positions, with middle back playing in the "up" position.
  • Blocking
    • When blocking, inform your teammates so they are prepared to cover dinks.
    • Normally only one player blocks
    • Inform your teammates (especially the other blocker) if you intend to execute a double block.
    • Skilled blockers may perform a switch to block the stronger hitter on the opposing team.
  • It is common for some players to set the whole time they are in the front row by performing a "switch" after the serve with one of the hitters.
  •  6-2 and 5-1 offensives are difficult to run even at the Advanced Level due to lack of experience by most players.
