New Playoff Sub Policy
The Board has voted on a revised substitution policy to be used during playoffs (see below). If you feel this situation applies to your team, you must submit your substitution request to the Board for consideration via email at least 24 hrs in advance of your playoff match. (Start checking in with your teammates now to see if anyone may be absent. It's never too early!)

New Sub Policy:
During playoffs, incomplete teams (i.e. teams with fewer than six players present) will be allowed to obtain a sufficient number of substitute players to yield a legal team of six players. At least one original team member must be present.

Captains who anticipate having an incomplete team during playoffs must contact the Board no later than 24 hours in advance of their match to request a list of approved replacement players, from which the substitute(s) must be chosen. The approved list will be compiled based on players' rating scores, and will include players of similar rating to the absent player(s).
Welcome to the SCVL Website!

The Steel City Volleyball League (SCVL) offers a fun and friendly atmosphere for recreational and competitive volleyball among Pittsburgh's gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight ally community.

Please make sure to send us your team names and captains to or write it down in the Score Binder. Please let us know so we can print out the score sheets for the season with everyone's team name.

We've Moved!

We were very sad to leave Greentree Sportsplex but as our league grows we needed room to expand. Our new address is listed below.

Pittsburgh Elite Volleyball Association

Pittsburgh, PA 15202
Important Rules!

Please be sure to check the schedule for your team's reffing duties. There is one occasion where a team is asked to ref a different division. Each reffing team needs to provide at least four people as officials (Up-ref, down-ref, line judges and scorekeeper).

With the newfound court space at PEVA (Pittsburgh Elite Volleyball Association), please remember that when you serve you will no longer be allowed to step on or over the back line until after the ball is contacted. Also, if a ball touches one of the court divider nets, it is out of play.

As in past seasons, reffing teams need to record the score from each set in the Score Binder. Captains for each team should review the scores at the end of the match to ensure they are recorded and correct.

Also, please remember the league substitution policy:
- Teams may use substitutions only to reach a full complement of 6 players.
- Teams that are missing their 7th player are not permitted to find a substitute to replace that 7th player. (If a team uses a libero, typewriting is permitted in such a case.)
- The substitute player must be rated in a division equal to or lower than the absent player (e.g. A setter level player cannot substitute for an absent player rated for the recreational division).
