* Please make sure that you are ready to go at your scheduled game time. The janitors for the most part are very cooperative, but when teams don’t finish on time because they started late, they can get irritated. At the YMCA, it is very important that you are done by 10:00pm. If you are not, the league gets billed for overtime use. That will get expensive quickly and money is tight, so there will be no excuses. You are done by 10:00pm, no later.
* Please make sure you take down and put away all nets and poles at the end of the night before you leave.
* There is to be no smoking anywhere on school property. This includes outside by the school doors. Students are prohibited and so are we. This applies to all alcoholic beverages as well.
* All regular season matches are best of 3 (unless otherwise stated) to 25 points (maximum of 27 points). If a third game is to be played, the two teams much come to an agreement before the game starts as to how many points the game will go up to: 15 or 25 (to a maximum of 17 or 27). Time must also be a factor in this decision. If you are short on time, you will only play to 15 points (maximum 17 points). Playoff matches are best of 5.
* The first match of the night should be completed 1 hour after the scheduled start time. Teams scheduled for the second match should not have to wait or ask to begin their game.
The ball may hit any part of your body unintentionally and still remain alive.
You can intentionally or unintentionally play the ball off of your foot at any point during the game.
No players that have played either JV, senior high school or college volleyball during the current volleyball season are permitted to be rostered or allowed to play in the league during the regular season or league playoffs.
Teams will be placed in the playoffs by a point system that will be calculated by your team’s performance over the entire season. A specific number of points will be awarded to each position in each tier. These points will then be added up at the end of the season and you will be slotted into a playoff position. Playoff matches are best of 5.
