6 players play at a time
The person rotating from the bench comes into server position
The person in the right front rotates to the bench
Server can move up based on skill level and then go to back row after the serve
Each server gets 4 attempts to make it over the net
Each team rotates 3 servers and then possession is changed
Out of bounds lines are standard
Play half hour then switch sides
Remember these are kids! Many of them have never played before and we want to encourage them and make it a great experience!
