Intermediate level & above drop-in grass vball in Washington park (SE Denver)

Initially all people will be put in  the wait-list.  Then they will be moved to the RSVP 'Yes' list based upon their skill level, whether they have RSVPed for another meetup and not shown up, whether they are bringing a net, and whether they have contributed to the operating costs of running this meetup group in the past.

This video is a good example of how we play, except the person in the serving position ( back center rear) may not leave their feet to spike. ( no matter where on the court they are, as there is no '10 foot line' on the court ) 

This meetup is only for those players that are at the advanced  intermediate and above skill levels for playing outdoor 4 on 4 volleyball. 'Intermediate' means that you know 4 on 4 rules as played by Volleyball of the Rockies and can consistently serve, bump, set, and spike within the rules over 80% of the time. Their will probably be tens of nets out there, so you will need to RSVP to get more info on the location. You don't have to be tall or a expert player to attend this meetup.

The forecast is for over 65 degrees this Sunday, so sounds good for volleyball.

I will increase the number of players that can attend if others volunteer to bring a net. 

Go ahead and RSVP 'yes' if you think you might be interested in attending. If you change your mind you can always change your RSVP. Don't wait to RSVP until you see a bunch of people coming. That is how meetups get canceled. Everyone is waiting for others to RSVP and it ends up few do. 

 I will stay till dark if there are enough players that still want to play that late. We can then go out to dinner then if anyone is interested.

People that don't RSVP don't have the right to play if we are short of nets.

If anyone with a net wants to go out earlier, put that in the 'comments' so others can join you. 

If anyone wants to bring a table, grill, food, drinks and such, that would be great.

You don't have to already know anyone or have a team. We just make teams randomly.

We don't play 5 on 5 or 6 on 6 number of people per side outdoors on the intermediate net.   We usually play 4 on 4 on each side or less. If someone brings a net and wants to dedicate it to doubles that would be great. 

Put in the comments section of this meetup event if you will be bringing out a net so I can increase the number of players that can RSVP. 

To be a intermediate or better player you must know and be able to play the Volleyball of the Rockies 4 on 4 rules that we use when playing outdoors grass or sand, and know the rules and procedures for playing 3 touch volleyball with the center setting volleyball. You must also be able to set, bump, and spike. You don't have to be an expert at any of these or be tall or fast,  but if you can't bump without 'carrying' the ball or don't know the rules that are standard throughout the world, then you are recreational level player as far as this meetup. 

The most important characteristic of  intermediate and above level players is knowing  not to dink, lift, throw, or receive the serve with open hands. (outdoors 4s and less players rules doesn't  allow open hands receiving of the serve. ) Intermediate and above players also have the skill to accurately serve, bump, set and spike legally over 80% of the time. They also try to use all three touches of the ball to attain a 'spike' of the volleyball.


Most recreation players try to get the ball over the net in one or two touches and carrying and throwing the ball isn't called as much, nor is touching the net or receiving the ball illegally. WE ARE NOT PLAYING THIS RECREATIONAL LEVEL VOLLEYBALL AT THIS MEETUP.

Intermediate B/BB players know and obey the Island Volleyball of the Rockies rules when playing outdoors. Those rules are different in many ways than indoor 6 on 6 hard court rules and recreational rules. I will have meetups for recreational levels at another time.

      Awesome people! I just checked the weather for tomorrow afternoon. It is going to be in the low 40's, but sunny. How enthusiastic is everyone feeling about that? If everyone is ok with that, I'll have my net set up and ready to go.

    For those on the waiting list, you are welcome to come over to Wheat Ridge Recreation Center http://www.meetup.com/denvervolleyball-103/events/171364252/

    http://www.meetup.com/DenverEpic/events/167350122/ is also having a volleyball meetup Sunday in Wash' park. I don't know about their skill levels or anything else.

  • Da-Vi'do キ.

    Did Borys German, Susan, and Paul not attend last Sundays' meetup in Wash' park? I don't remember meeting anyone with those names.

    March 18, 2014

  • Da-Vi'do キ.

    I got quite a few complaints about people showing up at my last meetup that weren't of the skill level needed to play at this type of meetup. So I will try harder not to have lower skilled level players being allowed to attend.
