  • Step 1

    (A) spikes the ball firmly towards (B).
  • Step 2

    (B) then digs up or passes the ball to (C).
    (B) then runs to join (A)
  • Step 3

    (C) then sets the ball up towards (D).
    (D) then runs to join (A) and (B).
  • Step 4

    (D) now spikes the ball firmly towards the newly formed group of 3 - (A), (B) and (C).
  • Step 5

    From this point onwards, there is no specific player role.
    The first person to receive the ball digs/passes then moves.
    The second person sets then moves.
    The third spikes and remains standing.
