HSE-Fishers Youth Volleyball Information and Guidelines

  1. Practices

-Check the website often to make sure there have not been changes.

-If you cannot get in to the facility, a coach should call Janet Berg at 317-409-9629

-You are given your practice time from our scheduler.  You may not change or swap your practice times. 

-Do not get the volleyballs out until the team before you has finished.  You may stretch and jog in the hall but no volleyballs.  Reason, you are disrupting the teams practice time. 

-Be prompt about getting off the court when your time is up.  It is not fair to the next team.

  1. Matches 
    Regular season matches will consist of three sets. All three sets will be rally score to 25 points.  There will be a 27 point cap on all three sets. Teams shall alternate sides after each set.

We will not use the Libero Player/position in our youth program.  

  1. Tournament - End of the season tourney will be best 2 out of 3 sets, (to 25 pts. Capped at 27)with the deciding third set, if needed, being played to 15 points. (capped at 17 pts.)
  2. Pre Match Captains Conference 
    The official will have a coin toss prior to warm ups, coaches need to choose 1-2 girls per match to be captains (take turns and let everyone be a captain). The winner of the coin toss shall choose between serve or receive. The serving team shall take the court first for warm ups.  There will be no additional coin toss prior to the third set during regular season.The warm up time shall consist of 5 minutes court time for each team, serving to be included in that time.  No shared serving.  During the tournament when we play matches best 2 out of 3, there will be an additional coin toss before the deciding set, set 3.
  3. Line-ups

-When turning in your starting line up to the score table, be sure to write your line up on the line up sheets provided.  The line up for that set must remain on the score table.  Between games, you may get your line up sheet and write your next starting line up, then return it to the score table.  Be sure to include your team number on the line up sheet.  We will not allow coaches to come to the table and tell the score keeper the line up, it must be written on the sheet.

-When turning in your line up, remember that if you are the receiving team at the beginning of the game, you will rotate before your first serve.  This means that if you are the receiving team, your first server will start in right front.

-To begin the match, all players will line up on the end line and run through the “Good Luck” line at the net.  Then the starting 6 players will take the floor and the rest will go immediately to the bench so the match can get started.  Sets 2 and 3, only the starting 6 will take the court in their position, ready to begin the set.  At the end of the match, all players again line up on the end line and go through the “Good Game” line.

6. Serve:

We allow the 4th grade only to step in the court 10 feet for up to 3 serves before moving back to the 5 foot line for up to 3 serves; they will then move to the end line to serve until a loss of rally. Once a player moves to the next serving line then they may NOT return to the previous line for the remainder of the season.   If at any time the Official feels a team is taking advantage of this rule, he/she may instruct the server to step back for their next serve.  

The 5th grade rec league is able to step in the court 5 feet for up to 3 serves before moving behind the end line. Once a player moves to the next serving line then they may NOT return to the previous line for the remainder of the season. If at any time the Official feels a team is taking advantage of this rule, he/she may instruct the server to step back for their next serve.

The 5th grade competitive league must serve overhand!  They are able to step in the court 5 feet for up to 3 serves before moving behind the end line. Once a player moves to the next serving line then they may NOT return to the previous line for the remainder of the season. If at any time the Official feels a team is taking advantage of this rule, he/she may instruct the server to step back for their next serve.  Everyone will serve from the end line for tournament.

The 6th grade competitive league must serve overhand and will serve from the end line, they may not come into the court.

The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade rec league will serve from the end line, they may not come into the court.

The official will be enforcing the foot fault rule during the serve.   If there is a foot fault there will be a loss of rally for the serving team, and a point awarded to the receiving team.  The serve will then alternate to the receiving team.  There are no 2nd try/re-do

7. Substitutions

Regular season – No subbing at all – Everyone will play 2 sets – rotate the girls who get to play the 3rd set each week.  It shouldn’t be the same girls each week!  If an athlete doesn’t show for that weeks practice, the coach has the option to play her in only 1 set without being subbed.

Competitive league – No subbing at all – Everyone will play 2 sets – rotate the girls who get to play the 3rd set each week.  It shouldn’t be the same girls each week!  If an athlete doesn’t show for that weeks practice, the coach has the option to play her in only 1 set without being subbed. Reason – since you will be learning and running an offense it is vital that all girls attend practice.

Tournament – No subbing the first 2 sets, 3rd set you may sub.  Every girl must play 2 sets without being subbed out.

 

8.      Court Etiquette during practice and matches (parents, coaches, fans, and athletes)

-No heckling (yelling while serving, taunting) any player

- No walking through the gym while athlete is serving – please wait for the end of play.

-No balls anywhere but in the gym

-No admittance anywhere in the school except the gym. (No cafeteria, stairwell, classrooms, hallways, etc)

-No propping doors to the outside.

**If you wish to not approach the parents please get a board member at the info table in the hallway.

Score sheet and Scoreboard 
Score sheets and scoreboards will be provided by the HSE Youth Volleyball League. One volunteer parent from each team will work the score table.

12.  Other

Rally Score:
A team no longer has to serve to score a point.  As a result there is no longer a “side out” in volleyball.  It is now called a “loss of rally”.  Which ever team wins the rally is awarded a point and the ball.  
Let Serve:
A Let Serve is a served ball that touches the net, between the antennas, and continues over the net into the playable area of the opponent.  Basically it is now legal for the serve to touch the net and then continue over.  
Double Hit:
A double hit, or multiple contacts, is now allowed on any first contact on your side of the net.  Provided that the multiple contacts occur in one single attempt to play the ball.  (You can’t swing one arm and hit the ball and then swing the other arm to hit the ball again. That is two actions to play the ball.) It used to be that was only legal on a hard driven attack.  This now means that it is legal to receive the serve overhead (set/overhead pass).  Any first contact on your side can be serve receive, a free ball, an attack, whatever the situation is the first time your team touches the ball on their side during the rally.

Like the drill but girl in black shirt has horrible form

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQkjzsB-5TM

this one is Purdue players – good example to see what a good pass form should look like.  Notice how they 1. Stay on the feet and move to the ball 2. Pass ball and hold their form.
