Eliminate sending teams to end lines between sets prior to changing sides.Towel tucked in shorts treated as equipment.Deciding set protocol.R1 no longer verifies scoresheet.Technology on the bench.Special injury time out.Libero tracker advises R2 at start of T.O.
50Points of Emphasis 2013Expectations of Properly Trained Assistant OfficialsLegal and Properly Worn Player Uniforms, Equipment, and AccessoriesMastering Officials Mechanics
51Rule Changes 2014 R2 responsible for own antenna faults Ball crossing outside on R2 sideNothing new since this is our mechanicIn Preseason Guide, strike fourth line Play 1Shortened time-outsIf both teams ready to play prior to 60 seconds, end time out with whistle. No longer use any signal to direct teams back to court.Ensure clock is stopped
52Rule Changes 2014 (cont.) Line Judge Optional Position R1 can direct LJ to move to end line extended position to better view potential foot faultsNothing really new, since this is our mechanicMascot & School Name on Sleeve of Solid Color JerseyRestricted to 4” x 4” or 3” x 5” logo on sleeve
53Points of Emphasis 2014 Informational Signals from R2 to R1 R2 offers assistance or opinion. R1 considers that information to make ruling.Illegal Hit / Ball Handling FaultsFour hitsPossible Back Row Player Fault
54Points of Emphasis 2014 (cont.) Court Boundary LinesRecommended single color, continuous line contrasting to floor colorMay use different color for contrastCenter line MAY be shadow-bordered to preserve painted logoHand SignalsPlayer Numbers -- Ready to PlaySet / Match PointEliminate all references in Preseason Guide to identifying position of setter prior to serve
55Editorial Changes 2014 5-2-1b. 9-2-3c. 10-2-5a. When R2 whistles fault, R1 only indicates result of play followed by player at fault (if necessary) without repeating fault 9-2-3c.After coin toss for deciding set, R2 indicates what teams do to R1.R1 blows whistle & directs teams10-2-5a.Subs reported during time outs by someone
