2009-10 NFHS VOLLEYBALL ® RULES BOOK ROBERT F. KANABY, Publisher Becky Oakes, Editor NFHS Publications To maintain the sound traditions of this sport, encourage sportsmanship and minimize the inherent risk of injury, the National Federation of State High School Associations writes playing rules for varsity competition among student-athletes of high school age. High school coaches, officials and administrators who have knowledge and experience regarding this particular sport and age group volunteer their time to serve on the rules committee. Member associations of the NFHS independently make decisions regarding compliance with or modification of these playing rules for the student-athletes in their respective states. NFHS rules are used by education-based and non-education-based organizations serving children of varying skill levels who are of high school age and younger. In order to make NFHS rules skill-level and age-level appropriate, the rules may be modified by any orga- nization that chooses to use them. Except as may be specifically noted in this rules book, the NFHS makes no recommendation about the nature or extent of the modifications that may be appropriate for children who are younger or less skilled than high school varsity athletes. Every individual using these rules is responsible for prudent judgment with respect to each contest, athlete and facility, and each athlete is responsible for exercising caution and good sportsmanship. These rules should be interpreted and applied so as to make reasonable accommodations for disabled athletes, coaches and officials. © 2009, This rules book has been copyrighted by the National Federation of State High School Associations with the United States Copyright Office.

One team serves the ball over the net, trying to make it land within the opponent's playing area. The receiving team attempts to return the ball over the net in such a man- ner that it will land within the opponent's playing area. SECTION 2 MATCH ART. 1 . . . A match shall consist of the best three-out-of-five sets. The first team to win three sets shall be the winner of the match. The fourth and fifth sets shall not be played unless it is necessary to determine the winner of the match. ART. 2 . . . A match shall include let serve. ART. 3 . . . A match shall entitle each team a maximum of two time-outs per set. NOTES: 1. By state high school association adoption, teams may play a best two-of-three set match in which a team is considered the winner of the match when it wins two sets. All sets shall be 25 points (no cap). The third set shall not be played unless it is necessary to determine the winner of the match. If a third set is necessary, a coin toss shall be con- ducted prior to that set. 2. By state high school association adoption, modification of match format is permitted for series other than dual varsity matches. SECTION 3 SCORING POINTS ART. 1 . . . A point shall be scored by the opponent each time a team commits a fault. ART. 2 . . . If the serving team wins the rally, it scores a point and continues to serve. If the receiving team wins the rally, it scores a point and gains the serve. Each time a team gains the serve, it must rotate one position clockwise before serving. SECTION 4 THE SET ART. 1 . . . The first four sets shall be 25 points (no cap), and a team must win by two points. ART. 2 . . . The fifth and deciding set shall be 15 points (no cap), and a team must win by two points.

Rule 1-5 2009-10 NFHS Volleyball Rules Page 8 SECTION 5 TERMINATION OF SET A team that has scored the required points and has at least a two-point advan- tage is the winner. If the leading team does not have a two-point advantage, play shall continue until one team has a two-point advantage (no cap). SECTION 6 PREMATCH CONFERENCE ART. 1 . . . Upon entering the facility, the home team selects its team bench. ART. 2 . . . Prior to timed warmups, a conference shall be conducted with the head coach and a captain(s) from each team. ART. 3 . . . During the prematch conference, a coin toss shall be conducted between the captains and head coach of each team. A visiting captain shall call the toss. The winner shall choose either to serve or receive. ART. 4 . . . If necessary, prior to the deciding set of a match, a home captain shall call the toss. The winner shall choose to serve/receive or the playing area. The loser of the toss shall be given the remaining choice. SECTION 7 SUSPENSION ART. 1 . . . If a match is suspended due to: a. Power failure; b. Host management failing to resolve a situation of an unruly spectator(s) in a reasonable amount of time; c. Other unforeseen circumstances. It may be resumed from the point of suspension unless the state association determines otherwise. The score and lineup shall be the same when it is resumed as they were at the moment of suspension. ART. 2 . . . Unless state association rules determine otherwise, a match shall be declared a forfeit when: a. A team refuses to play when directed to do so by the first referee; b. A coach is removed from the premises for unsporting conduct and no authorized faculty representative is present to assume responsibility for the team. ART. 3 . . . The score of a forfeited set shall be 25-0 (15-0 in the deciding set) if the set has not started. If the set is in progress, the offending team shall be awarded its acquired points and the opponent awarded at least 25 points (15 points in the deciding set) or a sufficient number to reflect a two-point advantage. ART. 4 . . . Unless state association rules determine otherwise, a set shall be declared a forfeit when a team has fewer than six players to start the match.

The court shall be 60 feet (18 meters) long and 30 feet (9 meters) wide, measured to the outer edges of the boundary lines. The court and adjacent playable area must be flat, smooth and free of obstructions other than required equipment and padding. It is recommended that the area above the court be clear of any obstructions and at least 23 feet (7 meters) high. ART. 2 . . . It is recommended all boundary lines be of one clearly visible color contrasting to the color of the floor and other lines on the floor. ART. 3 . . . Boundary lines shall be 2 inches (5 centimeters) wide. There shall be at least 6 feet (2 meters) and preferably 10 feet (3 meters) of unobstructed space outside the boundary lines. The end lines are the boundary lines on the short sides of the court. The sidelines are the boundary lines on the long sides of the court. ART. 4 . . . A continuous line, 2 inches (5 centimeters) wide, parallel to and equidistant from the end lines, shall separate the court into two playing areas. NOTE: A solid or shadow-bordered 2-inch (5 cm) wide line is permissible. A shadow line is a line that designates the required 2-inch (5 cm) width by use of border or outline lines at least ¼-inch (.64 cm) wide, which shall be within the 2-inch (5 cm) width. Border lines that are the natural color of the court are permissible. The area within these lines need not be one color but the continuous 2-inch (5 cm) wide outline must be clearly visible to the officials. If the floor has a logo in the center of the court, that logo should not distract from the visibility of the center line. ART. 5 . . . An attack line, 2 inches (5 centimeters) wide, shall be drawn across each playing area from sideline to sideline, the midpoint of which shall be 10 feet (3 meters) from the midpoint of the center line and parallel to it. ART. 6 . . . A serving area which is 30 feet (9 meters) wide shall be provided behind and excluding the end line. It shall be laterally limited by two short lines, each 6 inches (15 centimeters) long by 2 inches (5 centimeters) wide, drawn 8 inches (20 centimeters) behind and perpendicular to the end line, as extensions of the sidelines. Both lines are included in the width of the serving area. Each serving area shall be a minimum of 6 feet (2 meters) in depth. In the event that such a space is not available, the serving area shall extend into the court to whatever distance necessary to provide the minimum depth and be so marked. ART. 7 . . . The substitution zone is the area near the sideline between the attack line and the center line. SECTION 2 PLAYABLE OVERHEAD OBSTRUCTIONS ART. 1 . . . A ball striking the ceiling or an overhead obstruction above a
VOLLEYBALL RULES BOOK - page 10
Rule 2-3 2009-10 NFHS Volleyball Rules Page 10 playable area shall remain in play provided the ball contacts the ceiling or obstruction on the side of the net extended that is occupied by the team that last played the ball, and the ball is legally played next by the same team. ART. 2 . . . Cables, which are used to retract a ceiling-suspended net system and located only on one side of the net, are playable overhead obstructions. SECTION 3 OUT OF BOUNDS ART. 1 . . . A ball is out of bounds and becomes dead when it: a. Touches a wall, objects mounted flush with a wall, or objects on the floor outside the court without interfering with a player’s legitimate effort to play the ball; b. Touches the floor completely outside the court’s boundary lines; c. Touches the net antennas above or within the net or does not pass over the net entirely between the net antennas; d. Touches the net cables or net not completely inside the antenna, net supports or first referee’s platform; e.

Touches the ceiling or overhead obstructions beyond the vertical plane of the net and its out-of-bounds extension; g. Touches or enters (from the direction of the court) a nonplayable area beyond the legal reach of a player, or adjacent courts scheduled for play; h. Touches any part of a backboard or its supports hanging in a vertical posi- tion, over a playable area if it is a served ball or, in the judgment of the ref- eree, the ball would not have remained in play if the backboard had not been there. PENALTY: Loss of rally/point is awarded to the opponent. SECTION 4 RESTRICTED PLAY ART. 1 . . . A referee shall stop play when: a. A wall, floor obstacle, nonplayable area or nonplayer interferes with a play- er’s legitimate effort to play the ball; b. A player gains an illegal advantage by contacting any floor obstacle (team benches, officials’ table, bleachers, etc.), wall or another player; c. It is necessary to prevent player injury from contact with obstacles or walls; d. The ball contacts any part of a backboard or its supports which is hanging in a vertical position over a playable area. Supports are considered part of a backboard. ART. 2 . . . A player may play a ball over a nonplayable area if the player has a body part in contact with a playable area at the time the ball is contacted, and may enter the nonplayable area after playing the ball. EXCEPTION: When competition is scheduled to occur on adjacent courts, no player or ball may enter or break the plane of the adjacent court before, during or after playing the ball.
