Reminder on some protocols (2022-2023)
LINESPERSON – the home school does not provide Linespersons; each school has their own Linesperson - they will stay on their own side with their team. NO SWITCHING SIDES. (If one schools only has 6-7 players than if the other school is willing to provide a linesperson it’s okay.)
LIBEROS - 2 Liberos are used by BOYS' only. The replacement player may replace and be replaced by either libero. The acting libero can only be replaced by the player whom he replaced (for that position) or by the second libero.
GAME BALLS – should be 2-4 Game balls for each set. If school can not provide 4 than you can go with 2. (All the balls have to be the same.)
SUBSTITUTIONS – enter the court between the Attack line and the End line.
R1 or R2 – the protocol is to talk to your partner to decide who will work as R1 or R2. Do not automatically assume you are R2.
