5 Team pools- Games are to 11, Cap at 13.  Teams will switch sides every 4 points.

4 Team pools- Games are to 15, Cap at 17  teams will switch sides every 5 points.

After pool play ends; 1st place team in ALL pools is required to bring the clip board to the registration desk.

If there are any ties after pool play a "play in" game will be held.  Play in games will be one game to 7, no cap.

 

Serve/Serve Receive- You cannot open hand pass a serve.  A serve may be received with an open hand action IF the ball is only contacted by the palm or other hard surface of the hand.  No fingers may be used while in serve receive.  The ball must "pop" off the receiving surface, ball may not come to rest in any fashion.  If using two hands; Hands must be touching or together when receiving the serve. 

 

The service toss may be dropped anywhere with no fault once per point. A subsequent drop of the service toss results in a loss of serve. 

A team determined to be out of serving order will lose their serve

Let serves are not permitted

 

The courtesy rule is in effect for the coed BB & B levels, and means the male may serve the female once every serving rotation and not on game point.  

What does it mean to "serve the female"?  It means that 1/3 of the court is considered to be the female players "side" of the court.  If a player serves seam (between the two opponents) and the female passes the ball, this is NOT a violation.  If there is any dispute, the call is to be determined by the ref team.

 

Blocking- A block does not count as a touch; directional blocking is not permitted; NO open hand tips/dinks are permitted.

 

MISC.-

At no time may a player touch the net or poles;  Poles are considered antennas for the purposes of determining whether a ball crossed over the net within the playing area 

Any equipment issues with the net or court (lines)  results in an immediate re-do of the point. A player may not purposely cause such an issue.

 

If you touch the net after the ball is down and it's part of your follow-through, it's a net violation 

Net calls- hair and clothing is permissible.  Hats and shoes are NOT permitted to touch the net.

A player may cross into the opponents space during play if there is no interference with play and no net violation.

 

Players may open hand pass an offensive hit only if the ball is hit on a continuous downward path (commonly referred to as "hard driven")-. If the offensive driven ball arcs at all and you use your open hands to pass it, it is a violation.

 

You may not open hand set over the net.  If players hand set, both hands must contact the ball simultaneously.  Ball cannot rotate more then 1 1/2 times.  If the wind blows the hand set over the net, it is a violation. 

A player may enter the opponents space, court or free zone, provided that the player does not contact the net and it does not interfere with the opponent's play

 

Ref team makes final decision on any and all calls.  Please be respectful to one another at all times.

 

Each team is permitted one time out per set.  Any injury or medical time out can take place whenever needed.

Sandbagging - “hiding the strength, skill or difficulty of something or someone early in an engagement”.  We have determined it is necessary to state the following rules: If you have won or come in second in one division twice; you should move to the next level; unless you are currently playing the highest level.
