Rocball:             The Evolution of a Sport and a Revolution on Court

 
Service for the first and second set of a game will be from the right side of the court. Service for the third and fourth set of a game will be from the left side of the court...If a game is forced into overtime, teams will flip a coin for service and court position...In overtime, teams are allowed to serve from either the right or left side of the court...If teams are forced into more than one set of overtime, teams will change court and losers will serve to start the next set.



Rocball teams in position on the serve: On the serve, the defensive team, the team receiving the serve, the two front net players must be within the ten foot line. The defensive team's two Fielders must be in the back court but not in the goalie's box. The defensive team's goalie must be within the goalie's box when the ball is served...On the serve, the offensive team's players do not have to be in any kind of formation or position in any area of the court, however, the backcourt players must stand behind the net players on the serve.

Team Goalies in Position: On the serve, the defensive team's goalie must be within the goalie's box. The offensive team's goalie does not have to stand in the goalie's box on the serve...Both the offensive and defensive goalie's area of play is all of the backcourt area. The goalie of each team is not allowed to make a play within the front ten foot net line.



The defensive goalie in action: The defensive goalie can leave the goalie's box as soon as the offensive team's server hit the ball. The defensive team's goalie does not have to wait for a served ball to cross over the net to leave the goalie's box.

Defensive team's players in action off the serve: The two front net players on the defensive team have to stay within the front ten foot line until after the first hit on a ball from any player on their team. The two backcourt fiels players have to stay in the backcourt area until after the first hit on a served ball from any player on their team...After the first hit on a served ball by any defensive player, the front net players and the backcourt fielders can move to and play at any position on court.



The Jam: The defensive team can score one court point, if one of its front net players can spike down a ball directly off the serve. The defensive team will earn one point and get the serve. A jam is a ball spiked down off the serve that directly hits the court or hits one person and lands on or off the court before a second player is able to touch the ball.

The Jam: A defensive team front line net player scoring a jam off an offensive team front line player. 



The Ace: The offensive team can score two points off the serve, if a served ball is hit by one defensive player and either lands on the defensive team's court or is hit out of bounds before a second defensive player is able to touch it.

The Ace: A defensive player hits a served ball out of bounds before another player is able to make a hit on the ball.

The Xunk: The offensive team can score an optional condition, if a served ball lands on the defensive court undeflected by any of the defensive team's players. In order to avoid being xunked, a player on the defensive team must hit a served ball hard enough to deflect it off its flight pattern. If the offensive team scored a xunk, it has the option of adding two points to its score or subtracting two points from the defensive team's score.

The Kee: The goalies from either the offensive or defensive team score two points when they are able to score from backcourt. When a goalie can spike a ball onto its opponent's court, the goalie's team will earn two points and make the next serve. If a goalie hits a ball over the net and a player on the opposing team hits it out of bounds, the goalie's team earn two points and makes the next serve. 

A Goalie's Backcourt Play: The goalie is normally restricted to the backcourt when playing Rocball. However, when a goalie is attempting to score a kee, the goalie can start his play from the backcourt, jump up to spike a ball and land within the front ten foot line. Immediately after landing within the ten foot line, the goalie has to return to the backcourt. A goalie is not allowed to touch a ball if one or both feet are grounded within the ten foot line.

TheGoal: Goals can be scored by either team and by any player on either team. In order to score a goal, a ball can be hit directly into the goal, bounce off the court and roll into the goal, or be deflected off a player and land in the goal. Goals are worth three points.



The Goal: A goal can be scored if a ball bounces off the court and rolls into the goal: Goals are worth three points.

The Goal: A goal can be scored directly off the serve. Goals are worth three points

The Goal: If a ball is deflected off a player and directly enters into, or bounces and rolls into a goal, it is a three point play.

The Face: A face is a one point score for either the offensive or defensive team. The faces of the goals are Rocball's vertical court lines of play. Any players from either team can score a face if they hit a ball directly onto any part of the goal. A ball has to hit the face of the goal in flight. If a ball bounces off any part of the court and hits the face of a goal, it doesn't qualify as a face point.
