Rules and Interpretations
Click this link to access the governing rules and guides for the rule set used at the NorthStar Presidents Day Challenge. The "Abridged USAV Rulebook" is much easier to read than the unabridged version. Please download a copy and have it with you on your phone/tablet during the event.
The matches on SUNDAY that do not have a work team (check the Team Schedule & you'll see "NO WORK TEAM" listed) will use a simplified scoresheet developed by MVOA. The video here covers the usage of this sheet.
Tell the playing captains at the coin toss to help you by bringing the scoresheets back/forth from the stand to their coaches so you do not need to go up/down the stand during the match.
NOTE: at the bottom of the scoresheet there is a space to put the Court #, Match Time, and winning/losing teams. ENSURE THESE BOXES ARE FILLED IN SO THAT THE SITE DIRECTOR CAN RECORD SCORES CORRECTLY.
If nothing else, please ensure the score is properly noted on the sheets at the end of the match.
