### What is rotation in high school volleyball?

When your team scores a point and the previous serve was the other teams ball, you rotate clockwise and the person who was in front of the server before, will be the server.

### Which direction you rotate in volleyball?

There are 6 positions in volleyball as well as 6 rotations to correspond with the positions.In simple terms: There is one player in each position. After you side out (earn the point after the other team serves), you earn possession of the ball and you must rotate. The player in position 1 (serving position) now moves to position 6. Position 6 moves to 5, 5 to 4, 4 to 3, 3 to 2, and 2 to 1 (player who will now serve). You remain in the position you just rotated to until you side out again (this requires you to lose the serve, and once again win a point off of the other team's serve).In more complex terms: There are 6 rotations that revolve around the position of the setter. If the setter is in "Rotation 1" he/she is in position 1. all of the other players fill in the remaining spots on the court based on position. Outside hitter #1 would be in position 2, Middle Hitter #1 in position 3, Opposite side hitter in position 4, Outside Hitter #2 in position 5, and Middle Hitter #2 (most likely a libero) in position 6. When the setter moves to "rotation 2" he/she is now in position 6. The other positions rotate as well. So now the setter is in 6, OH 1 is in 1, MH 1 is in 2, OH 2 is in 4, MH 2 is in 5. The rotaions move around all the positions in the direction you rotate (clockwise). So when you say the setter is in rotation 5, he/she is in position 3. In rotation 6 the setter is in position 2. This is the exact same thing as the simpler explanation except I'm just detailing where each designated position would be and how the formation works.

### Can you move out of position while ball is in play in indoor volleyball?

Yeah you can move out of position- volleyball would be pretty tough if you couldn't. Just make sure you are in the right rotation before the serve or else the ref can call you out of rotation or an overlap. After the ball is hit you can move out of that position to play defense, set, hit, and/or block.
