Rules Set - Rule Modifications:
MSHSL girls volleyball rules will be the basis for competitive play.
In an attempt to increase the number and length of rallies, create excitement, and improve overall technique long term, the MN Boys HS VB Association determined the following rules will apply to the 2021 Boys High School Club Season:
The ONLY allowed “DOUBLE HIT” call will be when a player attempts to play the ball in 2 separate attempts. THERE WILL BE NO BALL HANDLING, “DOUBLE” CONTACT CALLS. (This applies to ALL team contacts, even if 2nd or 3rd contacts are sent to the opponents' side. In short, think of the 1st team contact criteria and apply it to all 3 team hits!)
An "ILLEGAL HIT" will be called without leniency for ANY prolonged contact where the ball comes to rest before traveling in another direction.
The R1 will be patient and explain calls in depth with no yellow cards for delays in game until May 7.
The R1 will be responsible to check line-ups and watch for "ILLEGAL ALIGNMENTS" (i.e. overlapping). The R1 will correct alignment situations without calling a violation until May 7.
Only R1s will be assigned. No R2s or LJs for the regular season. Players and Coaches will be asked to assist with calls and be on an Honor System when needed.
A modified score sheet and libero/line-up/substitution tracking form will be used in place of an official scorebook.
Referees, coaches, parents, and players are EXPECTED TO BE PATIENT and assist with teaching the rules of volleyball. This may include coaches taking time to physically instruct on the court during the match.
Home team chooses bench. Teams will remain on the same side of the court for the full duration of the event. No switching sides.
One team representative from each team and the R1 will conduct a coin toss in a physically distanced manner. The visiting team will call the toss, the winner of the toss will have the choice of serve or receive.
