Players and user groups may use the descriptions below as a reference point for which level of play is most appropriate


B - Beginner

Adults with little to basic volleyball skills or formal team play. B level provides fun and engaging training environments for adults to learn and re-learn foundational habits and confidence for all basic volleyball skills required to have meaningful rallies*. Adults may train at this level for multiple seasons to develop foundational confidence.

At this Level: Rallies are developing but not as consistent. Focus is on movement confidence and first contact.

Development: All foundational skills at high volume repetitions. Consistency of the first passing and setting contacts , serving and spiking mechanics, Introduction of team game play.

*Note. Meaningful rallies include 2-3 contacts per team before going over the net, as opposed to rallies that end from a single contact play (Ie. Missed serve, ace, ‘shanked’/poor first contact, or first ball over)

BB - Lower Intermediate

Rally Ready players. Players who can consistently pass, set, and hit at a recreational pace or in a controlled training environment. BB level builds on top of basic skills, integrating 6’s or 4’s team play, and may be training in specific positions and roles on the court.

At this level: Players can sustain (but are also improving on) multiple contacts in each rally, with more challenges in receiving and defending faster paced attacks. Confidence in assigned positioning is developing.
