SKILL LEVELS
LEVEL C: REC/LOW INTERMEDIATE

I know the general rules of the game but may not know the more technical rules.

I understand basic positions and how to rotate.

I can serve the ball over the net and in play 50% of the time or higher. 

I try to pass to my teammates most of the time, but sometimes I just hit it back over the net.

When I hit the ball over the net, I am trying to keep it in bounds, not necessarily trying to place it strategically.

I understand how to score points, keep score, and when to announce the score.

I know what blocking is, but don’t see a lot of it at my level of play.

I know when to call for the ball to avoid collisions.

I know I’m not supposed to touch the net.

LEVEL B: INTERMEDIATE

Teams regularly attempt to make three hits per side. 

Teams have a setter, but most of the time the setter is setting from the middle position.

Players in these games often have a goal to improve and advance to Level A

Players play the position into which they rotate rather than assigned positions.

A solid “B” player has reasonable consistency. Skill level easily trumps height. Many “B” level hitters do not employ a standard hitting approach. A few points are scored due to execution errors but not the majority, most points have to be earned.

LEVEL A: COMPETITIVE

Superb players. Highly athletic. Indoors they use complex offenses. Passing is stellar.

Perform all skills: BLOCKING, SETTING, PASSING, and HITTING. 

Know what 5-1, 6-2, and 4-2 offenses are. 

Know how to cover the court defensively during a serve and during a hit. 

Can pass a hit or serve to the setter consistently. 

Front row hitters are able to take an approach and hit the ball consistently. 

Know what covering a hitter means. 

Play with positions: outside hitter, middle hitter, right side hitter, setter and defensive specialist.

Setters can set a basic outside, middle, and right side ball with minimal spin. 

Get 90% of serves, or more, in play.

Most of the players are tall. Indoors they almost always use a 5-1 or 6-2 offense (i.e., the setter is often a back row player, so that there may be three hitters in the front row).
