Wammi Ball for Volleyball

Subject Area

Physical Education




This activity is very similar to volleyball with the object of the game to strike the ball over the net. Each team can choose to hit the ball to any of the three opponents sides after an underhand serve starts the game. Allow unlimited hits to get the ball over the net. If a team makes a mistake (i.e., they hit the ball out, into the net, or they miss a serve) they receive a "wammi". During the course of the playing time, each team is trying to get the LEAST number of "wammis" possible. The team who loses the previous point will have the right to serve the next point. This is activity will help students practice volleyball skills and communication while in a small game-like situation.

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