Rocball is a team nat sport derivative of volleyball with its roots of play founded in the Meso-American warrior sport of the Aztecs. It started in 1979 and has been an annual sporting eveny here in Saipan since 1983. Rocball is the first team net sport of its kind to implement offensive and defensive scoring and preceeded the rally point system of the FIVB rules for rally point scoring.

I have recievwed corrspondence about Rocball from Australia, India, Japan, England, Mexico, and the MIVA (Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association), but it is mainly of sport of Micronesia where genrations of players from Chuuk, Palau, Kosrae, Marshalls, Yap, Pohnpei. Guam and other out lying isalnds have been palying the sport for since 1983.

You can "Google" the Rocball homepage and get all the basic rules of play with graphics and photos.

What Rocball isn't, is that it isn't the sissy game of rallypoint volleyball!!!
