Volleyball Rules
  • Games will be 4 vs. 4
  • The first team to win 2 games will be the winner.
  • Games are played to 15 points with a 2 point lead to win.
  • Alternate sides after each game.
  • The penalty for practically every foul is the loss of the ball for the side serving or loss of the point if the receiving side fouls.
  • The ball must be served by the right back behind the rear line.
  • Only one serve is allowed per side and it must land within the opponent's court. If it touches the net and continues into the opponents court, it counts as a serve.
  • It is a foul for players to touch the net, to reach over the net, or under the net and touch an opponent, or to step over the center line.
  • Holding or throwing the ball while it is in play is a foul. The play must be a distinct batting of the ball.
  • A ball landing on a boundary line is "in."
  • A point may be scored only by the side serving.
  • If the ball touches a player, he is considered to have played the ball.
  • The ball may be played only 3 times by one time in a volley, and a player may not play it twice in succession, but may play it twice if it is played by a teammate in between. Players of the serving team must rotate clockwise when receiving the ball to serve.
  • When 2 opponents hit the ball simultaneously out of bounds, the point is played over.
