Equipment: All players at all times must respect all of the facility’s equipment. All players must not intentionally misuse the nets or any other volleyball equipment by tugging, grabbing, pulling, hitting, etc...
Schedule: Schedules will be ready as soon as possible before the start of your league. Center Court reserves the right to change your schedule if it will benefit your league.
Rescheduling/Make-Ups: When games are cancelled for a reason beyond our control (ex. inclement weather), if possible, they will be rescheduled to the best of our ability. This will depend on court availability; If they cannot be made up, no refunds or credits will be given.
Forfeits: You may forfeit a match due to a lack of players (see Number of Players). 15 minutes after start time forfeits the match. If you know your team needs to forfeit a match, call the director as soon as possible (preferably 24 hours in advance) so that opposing team may be notified.
Playoffs: All teams will play every week of playoffs regardless of position. There will be no time limit or scoring cap during playoffs
Scoring: All games will be played using rally scoring; all games to 25, with a 27 point cap.
Late Player(s): Players arriving late may only enter the game when their team has gained a side out.
Number of Players: All teams will be allowed to begin their match with as few as 2 players, though in a coed league it must be 1 male and 1 female player, or 2 female players.
Coed Play: Each team must alternate male/female in line-up. At no time may a team play with more males than females unless agreed upon by both teams at the start of the match. In coed play a series of 2 or more contacts must involve a female player.
In 4’s Leagues: All players are considered “live” and are allowed to attack the ball from anywhere on the court. No rotation is required, except for a service rotation.
Playing off the Ceiling: If the ball makes contact with the ceiling and returns on the same side of the net, it is legal to continue playing the ball. If the ball comes down on the opponent’s side of the net, it is considered out of bounds and is a dead ball.
All USAV Rules Apply: With the exception of the rule on touching the net. For safety reasons it will remain illegal to touch any part of the net as opposed to the more liberal rules recently adopted by USAV (for USAV rules visit http://www.usavolleyball.org/pages/2495)
