2016/2017 Season

Thursdays 6.30pm - 8.30pm at Parkstone Grammar School

Mini-Volleyball is a great way to introduce young people to the game of Volleyball. We play small sided games for those aged between 8 and 16, with 3 categories of game types depending on the age group:


A - Detack - no volleyball experience required

B - Catch and Volley

C - Mini-Volley

Mini-Volleyball Rules

  1. Games will be played on a badminton size court.

  2. 1,2,3 or 4 a side

  3. Players will either referee and score games fairly when they are not playing or sit in line to wait their time on court.

  4. All games - the idea is to ground the ball on your opponents court or make them make a mistake.

  5. Each rally won gives you a point.

  6. No net touches or crossing of the centre line.

  7. All ball contact must be above the waist

  8. Maximum three touches (ball has to go over the net on the teams 3rd touch)

    A - Detack - Catch the ball before it lands on your court.  Without moving and within three seconds you have to throw the ball back over the net or to your partner.  You can jump but must throw the ball whilst in the air.

    B - Catch and Volley - as Detack but the shot going over the net must be a volleyball shot.

    C - Mini Volley - all actions must be volleyball shots (no catching or throwing)

  9. Poor behaviour will not be tolerated.

  10. The Organisers decision will be final.
