    3. Substitution method: One of the following 2 methods must be designated prior to the game and used throughout the entire match. (Must be male for male and female for female.)

      1. Player A substitute for Player B – when player B wants to re-enter the game, he/she must go back in for player A.

        Rotate in at the middle back position.

    4. You can switch out of man/women alternating positions once the ball is served but you must return back to the original starting positions before the ball is served again.

  5. The ball may be hit with any part of the body.

  6. Any player contacting the ball more than once, with whatever part of the body, without another player having touched it between these contacts, will be considered to have committed a double hit which is a fault. (Exception-BLOCKING).

  7. A block does not count as a hit. The same player or players participating in a block shall have the right to make the next contact on the ball resulting as the first hit.

  8. You cannot block or attack-hit the serve. (An attack-hit is: a player completes an attack-hit on the opponent's serve when the ball is entirely above the top of the net.)

  9. You may reach across the net to block providing:

    1. The opponents have completed their three hits.

    2. The ball is clearly going to cross the net even though the opponents have not used all three hits. OR

    4. If the ball is falling near the net and no member of the attacking team could reasonably make a play on the ball.

  10. You cannot reach across the net to spike or hit the ball. When you spike you must make contact on your side. However, if the follow through of the spiker's hand and arm crosses the net, this is "not" a fault.

  11. Never are you allowed to make contact with the net during play.

  12. If the ball has already hit the ground and play is "DEAD", then net contact is not a fault. The referees determine this.

TIE – BREAKERS for top three places, be determined by:
