The Golden Rules (Code of Conduct)
Be on Time – Everyone in this league relies on each other to show up AND be on time. There is very limited to no flexibility with late starts.
What are the general rules?
Advanced (Open, AA, and A) will be playing regular AVP rules. Detailed rules here.
The following rules apply to all divisions:
Touching the Net – If you contact any portion of the net during play, it is a fault.
What is your sub policy?
First and foremost, we want to stress the importance of having a sub if you or your partner will not be able to make your games. Players have adjusted their schedules and commitments to play in this league, and we ask that each team respects everyone’s time by ensuring their opponents are able to play as planned that evening. The following rules apply to subs:
What skill level am I?
B is for beginners who are still working on basic skills. Minimal ball control.
BB is our intermediate level competition. Players have limited training on individual volleyball skills. Hand setting calls are not quite as strict, but doubles and lifts are still considered a foul. Consistent 3 hit rallies.
A is our advanced level competition. Players have trained on individual volleyball skills. Advanced setting and serving. Good defense.
AA is for elite level competition. Players have trained extensively on individual volleyball skills. Excellent setting with high velocity attacks. Float, jump float, and/or high-velocity jump serving. Pinpoint passing.
What if I can't make it to a game?
It is very important that you find a sub if one or both players can't make a game. Please see the Sub Policy on this page for more details. Other team players can sub for you if they are not playing in your same time slot. If you can't find a female and male to sub for you, you can have two females play. Two males can play but you will forfeit the match.
What is your inclement weather cancellation policy?
If the rain is light, games will continue.
If the field is flooded or has not dried enough for play, games will be canceled for safety and to prevent damaging the field.
Lightning within a 10-mile radius will stop play. Play will continue if lightning clears within an appropriate amount of time.
We will try to make up as many games canceled due to weather, as field availability allows.
What do I get if I win this league?
After operating costs are covered, winners get to direct their cash prizes to their local charity of choice. The prize amounts are contingent on the total number of teams and will fluctuate per season. Additionally, winners across all divisions not only receive a "CHAMP" tech shirt, but also secure bragging rights indefinitely.
