Volleyball

Rules

The rules of Volleyball Canada shall govern ASAA Volleyball, with the following modifications:

  • Substitutes - The modified 12 substitute rule will be used. The rule is as follows:
    • A team shall be allowed a maximum of 12 substitutions in any one game
    • A player may leave the game and re-enter the game, but only for the same player. Players are ‘tied’ together; e.g., 7 for 12 - these two players are attached for that game and a player must re-enter for the same player
    • Unlimited substitutions are allowed up to 12 per game

Examples:
7 for 12; 12 for 7 (2 subs) x 6 12 subs
7 for 12; 12 for 7 (2 subs) x 2 4 subs
8 for 6; 6 for 8 (2 subs) x 4 8 subs

  • The top of the net is to be set at the height of 2.43 m for males and 2.24 m for females.
  • Allow teams to list up to 15 players on the scoresheet.
  • Athletes of one gender must compete for a school team with athletes of the same gender.
  • The libero must wear a uniform whose jersey at least must contrast in colour with that of the other members of the team. The libero uniform may have a different design but it must be numbered like the rest of the team members.
    • The libero must wear a uniform shirt or jersey that is immediately recognized from all angles as being in clear contrast to and distinct from the other members of the team. The primary color of the libero’s jersey/shirt must be different from any colour that appears on more than half of the body of his/her teammates’ jerseys. In determining the body of the uniforms, the sleeves and collar should be ignored. The style and trim of the libero’s shirt, jersey and/or shorts may differ from their teammates.
  • A team must start every match with six eligible players. In the event of an injury where a team has no eligible players available, the team may continue play with five players. The position in rotation that becomes vacant remains in the same rotational position and continues in the rotational order. Therefore, if the vacant position is in the front row, there are only two front row players, similarly in the back row. A point and the ball is awarded to the opposition when the vacant spot rotates into position one.


Officiating

The ASAA recognizes the Alberta Volleyball Association (AVA) as the official organization for training and certifying officials and gives its full support through the use of certified officials.

  • In provincial competition, the competition chairperson and the AVA officials chairperson are responsible for appointing officials.
  • In provincial competition, the competition chairperson is responsible for ensuring that the minor officials - linesmen and scorekeepers - are provided and properly trained.


Season of Play

The season of play for volleyball shall be June 1 to the fourth Saturday in November. The season of play is not intended to include July and August. See SECTION V - ACTIVITIES, Item 3, for more information

*Covid-19 changes to the season of play can be found under Covid-19 updates.
