A volleyball lead-up game for grades 3-4.
Submitted by Kitty Greiner, DuBois, Pennsylvania.
Fourth and fifth graders really want to play volleyball, but usually have a hard time keeping the volleyball going. Try a game of Beachball Volleyball. The games are super!
Have 6-8 players per team. The rules are like regular volleyball, with the following exceptions:
- Students must hit the beachball at all times with two hands. Striking the ball with one hand will break it. Toss and hit the ball with two hands to serve.
- If the ball is successfully returned and hits the floor of the serving team, the opposing team scores a point. (Unlike regular volleyball)
- Whoever picks the “dead” ball up will toss and serve it.
- If your students have not been taught to rotate the service, simply use a front line and a back line. The players in the front line and back line will switch after 5 points are made.
