*Please decide Friday night if you will play or drop to allow time for people on the waiting list to plan their Saturday morning* Thank you • What we'll do Beach 2's, This is for people who know how to play beach volleyball. You need to be able to consistently pass, set, hit at a high level. This is the important part 👇 If you don't know what we mean by beach rules this probably isn't for you. The host will have the rights to prioritize the member with higher skill level to keep the game in the competitive zone. If you played beach volleyball consistently, you will understand. This is the important part 👆 Reservations open up each Sunday at 2pm. Court will cost 1000 baht per hour (if at Arsenal) 500 baht per court per hour (if at Shot Selections) divided equally between all players. Grade Yourself: generally, the definitions below can be used. I encourage you to please discuss this if you feel differently. Recreational- A "Recreational" player is a Beginner. A Recreational player should know the basics of volleyball, and played some volleyball before, but he/she is just beginning to bump, set, and spike. A Recreational player should not RSVP to an event which includes "BB" or "A" level or Advanced players. B- - A "B" player is still in the early learning stages of the game but knows the skills. A "B" player knows how to bump, set (a little), and spike. But a "B" player has a lot of practice yet to go to be able to do these skills consistently. A "B" player makes mistakes often. BB- A "BB" player knows where to be on the court at all times when plays are developing. He/she knows where to be when the opponent is hitting. A "BB" player knows the footwork of and how to approach hitting effectively. A "BB" player knows how to run a 5-1, a 6-2, and needlessly, a 4-2. To see videos of BB level volleyball click here or here. A- An "A" player is somewhere between "BB" and "AA". They know all the skills extremely well but cannot always execute the super-high level plays extremely effectively all the time. "A" players can run combination plays in a basic way if passes are good. That includes slides, tandems, x's, crosses, and back-row hitting. AA- Nearly Olympic. Or at least able to dig an Olympic Player's attack hit or able to once in a while put a ball down as a hitter against an Olympic Team. OK. No one can ever put a ball down against an Olympic defense. But an adult AA team of players would be able to beat a college Division I team of their same sex at least some of the time.
