Volleying With Beach Balls

Subject Area

Physical Education




In this activity, students will use a beach ball to practice their volleying skills. Students will volley the ball to themselves and hit it up in the air with an open hand. Students will next volley the ball up in the air, let it bounce on the floor and volley it up again. Students will then volley the ball off of a wall. A tapeline can be added to the wall to make sure it is volleyed high enough up in the air. The next progression of this activity incorporates another student. Volleying the beach ball between two students can now occur, with both students continuing to use proper technique. 

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
