48 Rule Changes

49 Rule Changes 2013 Signal sequence changed.
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.

50 Points of Emphasis 2013 Expectations of Properly Trained Assistant Officials Legal and Properly Worn Player Uniforms, Equipment, and Accessories Mastering Officials Mechanics

51 Rule Changes 2014 R2 responsible for own antenna faults
Ball crossing outside on R2 side Nothing new since this is our mechanic In Preseason Guide, strike fourth line Play 1 Shortened time-outs If 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

52 Rule Changes 2014 (cont.) Line Judge Optional Position
R1 can direct LJ to move to end line extended position to better view potential foot faults Nothing really new, since this is our mechanic Mascot & School Name on Sleeve of Solid Color Jersey Restricted to 4” x 4” or 3” x 5” logo on sleeve

53 Points 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 Faults Four hits Possible Back Row Player Fault

54 Points of Emphasis 2014 (cont.)
Court Boundary Lines Recommended single color, continuous line contrasting to floor color May use different color for contrast Center line MAY be shadow-bordered to preserve painted logo Hand Signals Player Numbers -- Ready to Play Set / Match Point Eliminate all references in Preseason Guide to identifying position of setter prior to serve

55 Editorial 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 teams 10-2-5a. Subs reported during time outs by someone
