Warm-up: 10 min. warm up the 2-4-4 format will be used for ALL matches. The first two minutes will be for ball handling, followed by 4 minutes on the court for the serving team and then 4 minutes for the receiving team.
6 Players: Teams not having six players when called to the end line at the beginning of a match will forfeit the first set. The team will forfeit the match if they do not have six players within ten minutes after forfeiting the first set.
Protests: Only rule interpretations can be protested, not judgment calls made by the officials. A protest must be filed at the time of the infraction and settled before the set continues. A protest will be resolved by a committee of the First Referee, Head Official, and the Site Director. The committee will vote to deny or uphold the protest. Their decision is final.
Ref Teams: Each team will provide two line judges, a scorekeeper, a scoreboard operator, a libero tracker and a 2nd (Down) referee. Teams must be on time for their refereeing responsibilities as if they were playing. The 2nd referee can be a coach or a player with the team coach assisting from the scorer’s table or standing near the player referee.
