Rules Questions of the Week Answers

1)     A libero exchange that occurs after the whistle and signal for serve results in an out of alignment call and loss of rally point and serve to the opponent.

2)     A withdrawn substitution that has been whistled and signaled should result in a yellow card delay warning. (If there was a previous delay warning in the same set, the result would be a red card delay penalty) The team is not required to substitute.

3)     If a wrong server is discovered prior to the opponent’s serve, the result should be removal of all points scored by the incorrect server. No additional points should be awarded since the opponent has already received a point due to a loss of rally by the incorrect server. If the wrong server is discovered after the opponent has served, no removal of points should occur. The team with the incorrect server should be placed in the proper rotation.

4)     There is no action necessary with sub-Varsity teams that are not in compliance with the solid-color jersey rule. The libero must still have a clearly contrasting uniform from the rest of the team.

5)     Yes, only the team or the libero for Varsity teams must have a jersey that is compliant with the solid-color rule.
