This event is for B+ level and above.
Please...Read the following rules and guidelines before signing up for this event.
As a courtesy to other players signing up - ONLY those (individuals) signing up are guaranteed a spot to play. If you do not sign up (or) if you are on the waiting list, but show up then you will not play unless there is an open spot (Example: If someone volunteers/shares their spot). Please do not sign up unless you are B+ in the sand and are comfortable hitting, passing, serving, and setting consistently.
This Meetup is NOT for Recreation / Beginner level play. If you are unsure of your level, please email me.
B+ Level (High Intermediate) description:
This level is for skilled players who are at the (high/upper end) Intermediate and are more consistent with their skills and who can control the ball more consistently and capable of passing, setting and spiking and play 3 hit volleyball at all times. This is for players needing to improve their consistency and strategy. Players at this level have a good understanding of the rules and be proficient at all of the skills required. Ability to control the ball and passing, setting and spiking is done on a more consistent basis.
We are playing 6's, 5's, 4's, 3's and 2's in an organized setting. All games are played by rotation of the players and must go for a rotation when the team gets a point.
The Rules that we will be playing by are:
1. Rally Scoring (Every mistake is a point for the other team, If you miss a serve or miss a hit or a block). (In general, we play for 25 points)
2. No carries.
3. No double contact (a player contacts the ball twice in succession or the ball contacts
various parts of the player’s body successively).
4. No hitting the net.
5. Preferably 3 hits (Passing to Setter, Setting and Spiking) but allowed to send it in 1 hit.
6. No illegal sets. The ball must be contacted cleanly and not held (including lifted, pushed, caught, carried or thrown). The ball cannot spin when you set it. However, rotation of a set ball may indicate a held ball or multiple contacts during the set but in itself is not a fault.
This event is for Adults... Age 18 and up.
No Shows and Late Bail Outs
No-shows and late bail outs hurt the group. A "No Show" is when you RSVP 'YES' for an event but fail to attend it. Any RSVP change less than 8 hours before an event is considered to be a "Late Bail Out". Volleyball is a team sport. Be a team player. If you are not going to be able to attend, please update your RSVP more than 8 hours before the event and let someone else have your spot. Think of it as your responsibility to the team. Individuals with three (3) 'No Shows' or 'Late Bail Outs' (in any combination) will be removed from the group. No conversation, no warning and no exceptions.
Past experience shows that guests often do not show up for events. To avoid this, in general to sign up for a volleyball event, you must be a member of the Atlanta Volleyball Meetup group. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis – please contact the organizer.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, complaints - please drop me a line and I would be more than happy to address the situation. Your feedback on how to improve this Meetup is encouraged and appreciated.
Welcome! See you in the Volleyball court.
