The Serving Game (Volleyball)

Grade level: 5-8
Equipment: Volleyballs, net
Game Description: Great game to practice serving, after learning the proper technique. Lots of reps and serving accuracy is accomplished in this mini-game that groups one team up against another to be the team with the best serving accuracy. A must-try as part of a volleyball unit.

  1. Players from each team sit down on their side of the court, opposite from a teammate who is the starting server.
  2. On the signal, the server from each team keeps trying to serve to their teammates.
  3. If a ball is caught, the player who caught it becomes a server as well, and joins the first server.
  4. First team to get all players up and serving wins the round!

  1. Do the 2 teams serve at the same time or do they take times serving?

  2. This is a great game to work on their serving and my 5th and 6th graders loved it.

  3. Great game. Use it all the time in middle and high school.

  4. We have the students lay down can’t move and the ball has to hit them (defend their face if needed) We call the game dead fish.

  5. You can probably do it either way. I have both sides serve continually, no need to wait. It does get kind of chaotic, but the more times they can practice serving the ball, the better, in my opinion.

  6. Hysterical!
    I will definitely try the dead fish game!! Thanks!
