2 USA Volleyball Referee & Scorekeeper Certifications
Levels of certification: Provisional, Regional, Junior National, National, International There are five levels of certification for referees in USA Volleyball. They are: Provisional, Regional, Junior National, National, and International. Further. There are corresponding certification levels for scorekeepers in USAV. The Provisional and Regional officials are the largest population of officials, and they are mostly local, grassroots folks! Junior National and National officials generally travel regionally or throughout the country to work at significant USAV National events. International officials travel around the world to work International volleyball events, such as the Pan American Games, Goodwill Games, the World Cup, and the Olympics.

4 DOMESTIC COMPETITION REGULATIONS SIGNIFICANT VOLLEYBALL (INDOOR) RULE CHANGES AND CLARIFICATIONS Narrative Explanation of Change in Regulation This change clarifies that under no circumstances will a player be allowed to play while wearing a cast.

Defines when and by whom the scoresheet is signed. “For junior competition, both coaches sign the scoresheet after the match to verify the results.”

6 Coaches sign score sheet

“Rally and completed rally. A rally is the sequence of playing actions from the moment of the service hit by the server until the ball is out of play. A completed rally is the sequence of playing actions which results in the award of a point.”

“For junior competition, when one team has exclusive use of the court, the other team must either be at its team bench or out of the playing area. Warming up with balls at the team bench or the spectator walkways is not permitted.”

Substitutions are only recognized when the sub enters the zone. There is no longer a request from the coach or captain. “The actual request for substitution is the entrance of the substitute player(s) into the substitution zone, ready to play, during a regular interruption.”

Locate work team and inform them of their officiating duties.

13 PRV Pre-Match Protocol
Captains’ meeting – ASAP: Jewelry Ground Rules Warm up protocol (see below) Match format Coin Toss: serve/side/receive Serving team 1st 4 min period Monitor warm-ups (2)-4-4 for Juniors; serving team on court for first four minutes May vary with other tournaments Instruct work crew during warm-ups “Keep matches on time” Captains meeting - remember to discuss ground rules, warm-up and pool play or tournament format. Reminder about jewelry and any safety issues that need to be addressed. USAV doesn’t use “home/visitor” designations. There are various ways to conduct the coin toss: 1) farthest team calls the toss, 2) first captain to the meeting, 3) first (or second) team listed on the pool play chart, 4) Pre-designate “You’re heads; You’re tails” Monitor warm-ups. Juniors – 2-4-4; Adults 5-5 or 10 shared followed by 5minutes after everyone has played Warm-ups may be shorter depending on the tournament. also ask if coaches need 1 minute reminder. Instruct work crew. Scorekeeper, Libero tracker, second referee and all line judges who will work the match. If you have any problems or questions discuss them with the head referee prior to starting the match. (More on this topic later in the clinic.) Remember Time management

14 Meet with scorekeeper and assistant scorekeeper:
Review scorekeeper duties Verify server before each serve; Triangle libero’s serving position. “Only in Pioneer Region events” Ensure lineups are recorded correctly; End of set/match procedures. Coaches must sign score sheet Referees must sign scoresheet after checking for accuracy. We will go over this later

16 Libero Scoring When the libero contacts the ball for service, draw a triangle around the corresponding number in the “Svc Order” column to indicate that this is the only position where the libero can serve in the set. A triangle is used in the running score column to record points won while the libero is serving. ü 14 14 BEARCATS A X B 14 X RAMS / 2 4c 6 8 10 12 1 3c 5 7 9 11 / ü / ü ü X ü ü 2 3 12 15 P

17 Tracking the LIBERO serving
The Libero Tracker must also track the libero serving. Libero serves for Owl’s #9 A Triangle is placed around the Roman Numeral to show this is the only place the libero may serve in this set 6 A 1 3c 5 7 9 11 13 L 17

18 Starting the match Signal teams to end lines or onto court
Check lineups During service: Eight second violation Re-serves not allowed Five seconds for 14 & Under (Competition) – a re-serve is allowed for each serve; five seconds permitted per attempt Make sure all teams are ready before beckon

19 Points of emphasis Exceptional Substitution
The injured player is not allowed to re-enter the match unless legally substituted out. Re-designation of a new Libero The injured Libero may not re-enter to play for the remainder of the match Rule 15.7 – Exceptional Substitution CLICK The substituted player is not allowed to re-enter the match. This was actually a change last year that we failed to highlight in the clinics. Remember, the previous rule was that the player couldn’t re-enter the set. The rule now falls in line with what is a change this year which is…click… Rule – Re-designation of a new Libero CLICK The injured Libero may not re-enter to play for the remainder of the match. Remember, previously, the injured Libero only had to stay out for the remainder of the set. This brings the DCR into sync with the FIVB rule, and with the aforementioned exceptional sub rule.

20 Points of emphasis A player is not permitted to pass hand(s) beyond the net inside the antennas and contact the ball over the opponent’s court unless in the act of blocking. Watch next slide for examples

21 “Penetration” Do not try to call this all the time
Only if the play is obvious

22 Reminder Games are called “Sets” ALL sanctions last for entire MATCH

23 Fully or partially external
Reminder Pursuit Rule External Space Side line Net Plane Fully or partially external -Define areas: side line, external space, net and net plane -click 1: on first contact (or block), ball goes back over the net -click 2: crosses net plane fully or partially in the external space -click 3: pursue/retrieve ball – return path fully or partially in the external space First contact

24 Reminder Clearance Required for Pursuit
2 meters 2 meters R1 R1 Pursuit rule requires 2 meter clearance on all sides. 2 meters

25 Blocks Definition: player reaching higher than the top of the net
Near the net Intercept ball from other side Part of body must be above height of net NOTE: If a player is not reaching higher than the top of the net, s/he can never be considered a blocker. NOTE: A block may result in a caught and thrown ball. NOTE: A ball trapped against the net may result in a caught/thrown ball. NOTE: Illegal blockers include back row players and the Libero. A block (actual contact with the ball while the player is reaching higher than the top of the net) of the serve is illegal. NOTE: A ball rolling down the body (during blocking OR other actions) is probably legal since the ball has not been caught and/or thrown. NOTE: If a blocker reaches beyond the net and contacts a ball before or simultaneously with the attacker, the result is “reaching beyond the net,” i.e., “reaching over.” Reaching beyond the net while blocking is legal based on the provisions in Rule 14.3 and USAV 14.3. Note: It is illegal to intentionally interfere with a ball moving towards the net Block 1st contact

26 Who’s a Blocker Illegal blockers: Collective block: below
Backrow cannot complete a block Libero cannot attempt a block Collective block: player must meet definition of a block to be considered part of a collective block below Not a blocker Blockers

27 Backrow Blocker Illegal 1st contact Near the net
Intercept ball from other side Part of body above height of net Illegal 1st contact

28 More Rule Review Backrow Attack
Attack hit: any ball (except block/serve) heading across the net Completion of attack: completely crosses net OR legally blocked Back row attacks (legal if not handset by libero in attack zone) last floor contact behind attack-line, or part of ball is lower than the top of net Rule : All actions directing the ball toward the opponent’s court, except blocks and serves, are considered attack hits. We don’t judge the player’s intent! Only judge the action, ie., “what happened.” Rule : An attack hit is complete when it completely crosses the vertical plane of the net, or is legally touched by the opponent/blocker. Rule : Provided a backrow player has not crossed the 3-meter attack line, s/he may attack any ball (except Libero or a Libero set). Rule : If the ball is not entirely above the top of the net, ANY ball may be attacked by a backrow player from anywhere on the court. Remember: whether or not the player jumps is NEVER an issue, or part of the rule! Rule : A backrow attack hit is a fault if the player was on/in front of the attack line AND the ball was contacted entirely above the top of the net. Illegal backrow attacks: last floor contact on/in front attack-line, and entire ball is higher than the top of net

29 Backrow Attack Not OK Top of net OK On/in front Attack line New signal

30 Backrow Setter above Towards opp Top of net Attack line in front

31 Potential play-over situations
Ball comes to rest on an overhead object above team's playing area and is still playable Simultaneous faults “Joust” play is legal Object coming onto the court and interfering with play Play is stopped due to injury anywhere on court or free zone

32 More Rule Review Team on the side the ball goes out on wins rally
Joust will still be “play on” Ball Out after Joust: Net Side line The “joust” – FIVB is following our lead by experimenting with this interpretation this season. Refer back to the adjacent court scenario. What is the adjacent court ruling? What about shared space between courts? What if the space between courts is less than two meter? impetus Team on the side the ball goes out on wins rally

33 Libero Review Restrictions Cannot complete an attack hit
Can serve (Only in our region) Cannot block or attempt to block Cannot handset in attack zone Cannot be Captain

34 Libero Review Check uniform legality BEFORE match, during warm-ups
Good preventive officiating will save us lots of headache and trouble – and it starts before the match! During your introduction to coaches or captains, ask if their team will be using a Libero. If so, ask if you can verify the Libero’s jersey for contrast (if they aren’t wearing them during warm-ups). Remember if color is used as number on regular jersey would it need to be highlighted? When a team’s lineup has been submitted, we should immediately glance at the Libero box/line to see if a number is recorded. If not, we should confirm with the coach – especially if there’s a player on the court in a different colored jersey! Incidentally, this should be done for EACH set because the team may designate different Liberos for each set in the match, or not use one in each set. Illegal replacements: Our USAV procedure for handling illegal Libero replacements is different than the NCAA, for those of you who work collegiate ball. When the wrong player comes back on the court to replace the Libero, we wait until the contact of the next serve, and call a position fault. We should have a good pre-match discussion with the folks at the scorekeeper’s table so that they know what we expect of them. (We’ve all probably had that situation where the Libero tracker identifies an illegal replacement, and in the excitement of noticing it, they yell “Hey, ref, that’s not right! That’s the wrong player.” The team hears this, and immediately fixes it or asks for help. In this situation, we make the correction and move on. A team delay may be appropriate, but it might be best to facilitate! Basically, we treat this like a wrong server situation. In the case of a late replacement, the referees must be certain that a positional fault does not occur when the serve is contacted. Check uniform legality BEFORE match, during warm-ups Check submitted lineups to see if a Libero is listed Make sure your libero tracker knows how to handle illegal replacements

35 Sanctions Can give multiple warnings R2 can give verbal warnings
The verbal Warning – no cards! Can give multiple warnings R2 can give verbal warnings Punctuate! End of discussion Mean it! Follow through

36 Sanctions Misconduct (individual) penalty expulsion DQ sideout
leave set leave match no point/side out

37 Sanctions Cards help to refocus on the court BUT
. . . Spotlight on the kids/game Cards help to refocus on the court BUT Cards also focus attention on Ref Keep it snappy – MOVE ON. Don’t make it personal 3. Re-examine: could I have prevented?

38 delay of interruptions
Sanctions Team Sanctions IR TDW TDP Improper request Team delay warning Team delay penalty at improper time by improper player for improper sub delay of game delay of interruptions 2nd IR Illegal sub

39 Injuries Stop play immediately, not just on playing area, but injury occurring anywhere Allow up to 30 seconds for assessment of injury If player is not ready to resume play after 30 seconds, a substitution or timeout must result Allow sufficient time for injured player to be safely removed from playing area No other substitution request may be made until injury is resolved Make sure player is hurt! Sometimes they are just

40 Injuries Special injury timeout
Only used when there are no legal substitutions available Lasts a maximum of three minutes Only one special injury timeout allowed per player per match Regular timeouts may be used in conjunction with the injury timeout

41 Injuries Priority of who may be an exceptional sub for an injured player Person who has played in the same position as the injured player during that set or any player that has not already been in the set Any player on the bench regardless of previous position played Libero An injured player replaced by exceptional substitution may not return to the match

42 Blood Situations Stop play for blood on: Player Uniform
Equipment (e.g. ball, knee pads, floor) Clean-up equipment: Blood issues Stop play for blood on equipment Stop play for blood on player and/or uniform A bleeding player is treated as any other injury (30 seconds to resume play); if additional time is needed to address blood on equipment or the court, that time may be used to enable the injured player to return Event Administration, NOT YOU Change bloodied uniform: Quickly (uniform is courtside) or Substitute New number (no duplicates), similar color/style

43 End of Set/Match Procedures
Players do not go to end line if there is another set to be played; a whistle and the signal to change courts is given immediately after signaling “end of game” Players go to their team bench during the coin toss for a deciding set Players change courts without delay at eight points in a deciding set Players to end line at end of match Grab coaches to sign score sheet

44 Hand Signals: Technique Review
Clear, visible and executed away from the body Held long enough to convey the call Complete each signal before displaying the next signal (indicate End of Set/Match Procedures loss of rally/next team to serve before signaling fault, for example) Establish a consistent tempo; don’t rush

45 Working With Junior Support Crews
Scorekeeper Libero Tracker/Assistant Scorekeeper Line Judges Second Referee Protect Your Crew! Here, we highlight instructions to our support crew in preparation for a match. Line Judges Notes: During a timeout, line judges should stand at the midpoint of their respective endlines. Also, USAV , page 67, indicates that line judges are not responsible for contact with the antenna by a player. Use of the “pursuit” signal as in NCAA competition will not be a USAV mechanic for line judges, but that’s subject to change!
