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).
