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 CLARIFICATIONSNarrative Explanation of Change in RegulationThis change clarifies that under no circumstances will a player be allowed to play while wearing a cast.
5 SIGNIFICANT VOLLEYBALL (INDOOR) RULE CHANGES Defines when and by whom the scoresheet is signed.“For junior competition, both coaches sign the scoresheet after the match to verify the results.”
7 SIGNIFICANT VOLLEYBALL (INDOOR) RULE CHANGES “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.”
8 SIGNIFICANT VOLLEYBALL (INDOOR) RULE CHANGES “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.”
9 SIGNIFICANT VOLLEYBALL (INDOOR) RULE CHANGES 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.”

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 LiberoThe injured Libero may not re-enter to play for the remainder of the matchRule 15.7 – Exceptional Substitution CLICKThe 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 CLICKThe 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 emphasisA 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 ReminderGames are called “Sets”ALL sanctions last for entire MATCH
23 Fully or partially external ReminderPursuit RuleExternal SpaceSide lineNet PlaneFully 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 spaceFirst contact
24 Reminder Clearance Required for Pursuit 2 meters2 metersR1R1Pursuit rule requires 2 meter clearance on all sides.2 meters
25 Blocks Definition: player reaching higher than the top of the net Near the netIntercept ball from other sidePart of body must be above height of netNOTE: 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 netBlock1st contact
26 Who’s a Blocker Illegal blockers: Collective block: below Backrow cannot complete a blockLibero cannot attempt a blockCollective block:player must meet definition of a block to be considered part of a collective blockbelowNot a blockerBlockers
27 Backrow Blocker Illegal 1st contact Near the net Intercept ball from other sidePart of body above height of netIllegal1st contact
28 More Rule Review Backrow Attack Attack hit: any ball (except block/serve) heading across the netCompletion of attack: completely crosses net OR legally blockedBack row attacks (legal if not handset by libero in attack zone)last floor contact behind attack-line, orpart of ball is lower than the top of netRule : 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

31 Potential play-over situations Ball comes to rest on an overhead object above team's playing area and is still playableSimultaneous faults“Joust” play is legalObject coming onto the court and interfering with playPlay 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:NetSide lineThe “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?impetusTeam 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 blockCannot handset in attack zoneCannot 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-upsCheck submitted lineups to see if a Libero is listedMake sure your libero tracker knows how to handle illegal replacements

39 InjuriesStop play immediately, not just on playing area, but injury occurring anywhereAllow up to 30 seconds for assessment of injuryIf player is not ready to resume play after 30 seconds, a substitution or timeout must resultAllow sufficient time for injured player to be safely removed from playing areaNo other substitution request may be made until injury is resolvedMake sure player is hurt!Sometimes they are just
40 Injuries Special injury timeout Only used when there are no legal substitutions availableLasts a maximum of three minutesOnly one special injury timeout allowed per player per matchRegular timeouts may be used in conjunction with the injury timeout
41 InjuriesPriority of who may be an exceptional sub for an injured playerPerson who has played in the same position as the injured player during that set or any player that has not already been in the setAny player on the bench regardless of previous position playedLiberoAn 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 issuesStop play for blood on equipmentStop play for blood on player and/or uniformA 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 returnEvent Administration, NOT YOUChange bloodied uniform:Quickly (uniform is courtside) or SubstituteNew 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 setPlayers change courts without delay at eight points in a deciding setPlayers to end line at end of matchGrab coaches to sign score sheet
44 Hand Signals: Technique Review Clear, visible and executed away from the bodyHeld long enough to convey the callComplete 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 ScorekeeperLibero Tracker/Assistant ScorekeeperLine JudgesSecond RefereeProtect 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!
