Court Size: A full size court 30’ by 30’ for each half will be utilized.


Match: 1 match will consist of 3 games. All 3 games will be to 25 points with rally scoring.  Team must win 2 out of 3 games to win the match and win by 2 points.  We encourage the 3rd game regardless if 1 team has won the first 2 games. This modification is to encourage practice/skill building.


Serving Line: 7 and 8th graders will serve from regulation line, 5 and 6th graders are allowed a foot and half inside the regulation line with a marked piece of tape. 4th grade will serve at the 10ft line. All grades are allowed 1 re-toss when serving. *RE-TOSS / RESERVE* - First attempt/ opportunity at serving and player does not contact the ball to serve (Ex. Player catches ball or let's drop).


Time limits: Matches will be 1 hour time limit.


Time outs: Each coach will be granted two (30 second) timeouts.


Substitutions/Rotation: You must play your entire roster and include them in the serving rotation.


Referees: 1 registered MHSAA official per match, with 2 volunteers needed to be line judges and 1 volunteer to keep book and time.


Playing Time: There are no playing time rules but it is expected that everyone participates.


Practices: are limited to 4 hours per week.  This is an honor system.  Be respectful of the rules to your team, parents, and the league.


Ejections: If a player, coach or spectator is ejected from a contest they will be suspended from the next contest. A second offense shall result in removal from the league for the remainder of the season. The host site is responsible to report this to the league. Officials shall file an incident report to the host site. This shall be completed in 24 hours and turned in to the league director. If a player, coach or spectator is removed from any league tournament or league sponsored tournament the will not be eligible for the remainder of the tournament. Continued disregard of rules or disrespectful conduct by a coach or parents could result in removal of team from the league.  Our goal and concept is to teach the children not winning at all or any cost.
