FORMAT FOR ALL DIVISIONS
All teams are guaranteed a minimum of 5 matches
USA Volleyball Rules for all divisions and age groups with the following exceptions:
COED 8s and COED 10s (4s)
Court size shall be 6m x 6m on each side (instead of 9×9). Net Height shall be 7’0” for COED 10 & unders and 6’8” for COED 8 & unders. Ball used will be a Molten 12 & Under
Players in a smaller space will be more likely to have success moving to, and contacting the ball.
Players on court shall be 4 (instead of 6).
Fewer players on the court means that every player needs to contact the ball more often. It also is easier for a club to field a 4 player team rather than a 6 player team.The Libero rule shall NOT be in effect.
Young players need to learn to play all aspects of the game before specializing. A good Libero could dominate the game at this level. No player may serve more than 5 points in a row. After the 5th point in a row, there will be an automatic side-out (with NO point awarded) and the opponent will resume serving. Rationale: It isn’t very much fun for either team to stand around and watch one player dominate the game from the service line.
BOYS 12s and 14s
Net Height shall be 7’4” for 12 & 14 & unders. Ball used will be a Molten Flyistatec
