Denver Metro Drop-in Volleyball Meetup Group Message Board › Guidelines for meetups hosted by Davido
"Volleyball with our group is NOT picnic volleyball with one hit over, except for meetups for recreational level play. (not that there is anything wrong with that style of volleyball) If you are interested in picnic , novice or other brands of volleyball that is more relaxed as far as the rules and procedures, that is available with other groups, including meetindenver. They play Wednesday in Washington Park.
There are also other meetups for all levels of volleyball.
There is also meetup sand volleyball in Boulder for sand volleyball, Up the Creek volleyball in Washington Park with mostly 6 on 6 volleyball, and a few bars around town that have drop-in and clinics on volleyball on their connected sand volleyball courts.
This meetup group is not drop-in for beginner players or others that have never played competitive volleyball, except for meetups that are listed "for recreational level play". If you don't know how to bump, set and spike, then you would probably be frustrated with playing with this meetup group, except at the recreational level meetups. This doesn't mean that you have to be an expert. U only have to experienced in playing organized volleyball with intermediate skills. But we do have some high level players that are excellent volleyball players that usually like to play doubles on a designated net. And if you bring your own net, you are welcome to designate it as a "recreational jungle ball fun net", expert, beginner, or anything in between.
We play doubles rules when playing four on four and doubles, which are different rules than 6 on 6 rules. No open hand dinking (in other words, U can't use your finger tips for pushing the ball over the net like you can in 6 on 6), and sets must be perpendicular from your shoulders. A block does not count as a hit though. ( this is different than official doubles rules, but is how we play). If the ball comes off your hands spinning real bad, it is illegal. Receiving the serve or spike overhand with hands apart is not allowed. Volleyball of the Rockies does not allow receiving the first hit with hands apart, so it is a good habit to avoid that so you will not have a bad habit to break if you decide to play on their leagues. Please call your own violations. Any questions on a call just play the point over.
