This week USYVL’s fall leagues will host game days on Saturday. This is a great opportunity for young players to showcase some of the skills that they have learned in the first few weeks of the fall league season.It is an exciting time for your players on all age divisions (7-8 years old, 9-10 years old, 11-12 years old, and 13-15 years old) to enjoy volleyball in a no pressure game format.The game format for the 7-8 age division is Hot Potato in a four person format, while our 9-10 age division, 11-12 age division, and 13-15 age divisions game format is Double Max game in a four person format.For the younger 7-8 age division the Hot Potato game is a great learning experience for the group. The volleyball is served over the net and a player catches the ball in the traditional passing stance. The player then tosses the ball to the setter. The setter then sets the volleyball to the spiker and that player then spikes the ball over the net. The opposing team will then follow the same game format, a player catches the ball in the traditional passing stance. The player then tosses the ball to the setter. The setter then sets the volleyball to the spiker and that player then spikes the ball over the net.The older age division groups will play a Double Max game. A player serves the volleyball over the net and his/her team wins the rally. The serving player’s team earns a point and a second serve. The player serves the volleyball over the net again and his/her team wins the rally. The serving player’s team earns a point, but the serve automatically turns over to the opposing team’s next server and the process repeats for the duration of the game period.Games are a great way to measure the learning process and identify areas for improvement. Most of all, games are designed to be fun for all participants. The focus is placed on teamwork and enjoying a positive environment for learning.
