Three for Three

One team of two players (A-B) position at the baseline. The rest of the players, opposite side, pair up and form a line behind the baseline. The coach (F) is on the same side with the defending team (A-B).
The coach sends a short ball to the first team in line (C-D). They move up to the net and play the point out against team A-B. The winner counts 1 point.
Next, the coach will send a volley to the team at the net (C-D). They play it out and the winner earns another point.
The last feed is an overhead for team C – D (still at the net). The point is played out.
If team A-B wins two points before C-D, they stay put and play another game against the next team in line. But if the offensive team (C-D) wins two points first, they replace team A-B (at the baseline, opposite side).
Note: Team A-B plays defense against the rest of the teams who come up and put pressure at the net. As long as team A-B wins, they stay; if they lose, they get replaced.
