Tip by Alicia Dawn Stewart, Carthage HS in Carthage, TX.
This game can be used as a fun warmup. It's called Reverse 6s because your backrow DS/L are playing front row, and your Front Line is playing back row. Coaches determine who plays what positions at the beginning Ex ( Liberos are middles, Middles are setters, OH are Defensive Specialists, Setters are Liberos) Coach initiates the rally with a freeball and the teams play it out.
If you happen to end up with a hitter on the front row, then they are not allowed to jump to attack. It's a great way to see players out of their element. It also gives players a new appreciation for their teammates who play those positions.
