League Rules for 2012 • Standard FIVB / USA Volleyball rules • With exceptions to encourage learning • And leniency on touch rules • For old schoolers, standard rules now include: • Rally scoring - each serve results in a point • Serves can touch net • Players can touch side of net but not tape • Double-touches on first balls McLean Youth Volleyball

  10. Special Service Rules • “Redo” if first serve missed • Only on first attempt in the rotation • Underhand servers allowed 5 feet (or so) in from the back line • No foot faults • Maximum of 5 service wins in a row per server • After 5, service switches to other team without point McLean Youth Volleyball

  11. Special Scoring Rules • Three games to 25 points (NOT best of 3). • If time runs out, winner of 3rd game is team with most points • Extra point awarded for three touches that result in an immediate point: • Discretion of the referee • First 2 touches can be bumps or sets; last touch must be an overhead hit • Extra point only awarded if opposing team does not legally return the ball McLean Youth Volleyball

  12. Continuous Substitution • Promotes equal playing time • Players on count and bench are one continuous line-up • With each clockwise rotation, two players rotate off the court and two players from bench rotate on to the court. • Start each subsequent game with players in the same positions as the end of the previous game Net 5 4 3 6 2 7 1 9 8 10 McLean Youth Volleyball Server

  17. Important Documents • Always carry copies of the following documents to practices and matches: • Team Roster with parent phone numbers • Facility Use Permit • Your VBD certification • NCS Inspectors DO visit gyms McLean Youth Volleyball

  18. Coaching Considerations • Focus on fundamental ball control skills: serve, pass, set, hit and *movement* • Practices should reinforce these skills • Use drills that encourage as many player “touches” as possible • Simulate game play over the net • Explain to players/parents that the focus is on ball control using multiple touches, not winning as many points as possible through one touch “Ping-Pong” • Promote communications and cheering • Provide positive feedback • Defer to referees McLean Youth Volleyball
