NATA Volleyball Tournament – 2013 (NJ) COURT FACTS: Court Dimensions: The playing court is a rectangle measuring 18 x 9 m (59’ x 29’6”) surrounded by a free zone. Center Line: The axis of the center line divides the playing court into two equal courts measuring 9 x 9 m (29’6” x 29’6”) each; however, the entire width of the line is considered to belong to both courts equally. This line extends beneath the net from sideline to sideline. Attack Line: On each court, an attack line, whose rear edge is drawn 3 m (9’10”) back from the axis of the center line, marks the front zone. Height of the Net The standard net height is 7 feet 11 inches. For NATA volleyball tournament it is set between 7 feet 8” to 7 feet 11” inches due to constrains of pole height at courts. Balls used for play: Mikasa VLS 300 (FIVB Approved official game ball)
NATA Volleyball Tournament – 2013 (NJ) Game Rules – Playing Format To Score a Point By successfully grounding the ball on the opponent’s court when the opponent team commits a fault Fault A team commits a fault by making a playing action contrary to the rules (or by violating them in some other way). The referees judge the faults and determine the consequences according to the rule and may award the point to opponent’s team. 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 laying actions which results in the award of a point. If the serving team wins a rally, it scores a point and continues to serve; If the receiving team wins a rally, it scores a point and it must serve next. To win a Set or Match: A set or match is won by the team which first scores XX points with a minimum lead of two points. In the case of a tie, play is continued until a two-point lead is achieved (example: 26-24; 27-25; …).
NATA Volleyball Tournament – 2013 (NJ) Game Rules – Playing Format (Continued) Team Starting Line-Up There must always be six players per team in play. The team’s starting line- up indicates the rotational order of the players on the court. This order must be maintained throughout the set or match. The players who are not in the starting line-up of a set or match are the substitutes for that set or match. Player Positions At the moment the ball is hit by the server, each team must be positioned within its own court in the rotational order (except the server). The positions of the players numbered as follows: Back Right Position 1 (serving position) Back Center Position 6 Back Left Position 5 Front Left Position 4 Front Center Position 3 Front Right Position 2
NATA Volleyball Tournament – 2013 (NJ) Game Rules – Playing Format (Continued) Switching Player Positions: Players are allowed to switch their positions once the server completes the serve. Switched positions remains active until the play completes for that particular serve. Players have to come back to their original positions before next serve starts. Failure to do so will result in Positional Fault (see below for positional fault details) Allowed player positional switch's: Front Center position (3) can switch with front right position (2) or Front Left position (4). Back Center position (6) can switch with front Center position (3) No other positional switches allowed for NATA volleyball tournament to provide participating teams with fair chances of winning the games. “Move to any Position” concept results in positioning your best spiker’s (attackers) on front row and best defense player on the back row most times which dampens the other teams winning chances. Please obey this rule in order to have better contest.
NATA Volleyball Tournament – 2013 (NJ) Game Rules – Playing Format (Continued) Positional Fault: The team commits a positional fault, if any player is not in his/her correct position at the moment the ball is hit by the server.

A positional fault leads to following consequences: Conceding a point and service to opponent team and Players positions are rectified Rotation: Rotational order is determined by the team’s starting line-up, and controlled with the service order, and players’ positions, throughout the set. When the receiving team has gained the right to serve, its players rotate one position clockwise: ( 1 6, 6 5, 5 4, 4 3, 3 2, 2 1) Rotational Fault: A rotational fault is committed when the SERVICE is not made according to the rotational order. It leads to the following consequences: The team is sanctioned with a point and service to the opponent team The player rotational order is rectified.

Ball out of play The ball is out of play at the moment of the fault which is whistled by one of the referees; in the absence of a fault, at the moment of the whistle. In the case of an inadvertent whistle, the rally is ended. The first referee must make a ruling that will not penalize either team. Ball “IN” The ball is “in” when it touches the floor of the playing court, including the boundary lines/rope.
