Rules of the game
The setup of the game is similar to volleyball, with a few key differences:
- Each team is made up of three players: the setter (Spanish: colocador), the flyer (volador), and the server (servidor).
- The net is higher and tighter: 2.80 meters high and 60 centimeters wide.
- The court is made of cement and has the same dimensions: 18 meters long and 9 meters wide.
- The game is played with a mikasa ft-5 soccer ball.
- Games consist of two sets of 15 points. If both teams agree, they can alternatively play two sets of 12 points with the option of a third tie-breaking set.
- The ball can be held each time it is received, as long as the holding lasts less than one second.
The flyer plays behind the setter and server, and runs quickly from one side to another recovering balls. Usually the flyer recovers the ball for the server. The server sets the ball in the air so that the setter can pass the ball over the net. The setter places the ball on the opposite court in a strategic manner, in an attempt to deceive the other team of where it will land. The referee is called the judge.
