SERVICE POSSESSION & LINEUPS

• A team earns service possession for the start of the first game by winning a coin toss or a Rock/Paper/Scissors. The teams will then alternate service every other game.

ROTATION

• During fours team members do not need to rotate position on the court. They do have to rotate service. During sixes team members must rotate on the court and must remain in that position until the serve has been contacted. The player in the back right hand corner of the rotation will be designated to serve and continue to rotate clockwise.

• Coed formats may line up in any gender order. This means that males may be next to males and females next to females. It is NOT required to alternate males and females.

• In 6’s there must be 3 front row and 3 back row players.

• In 6’s players must rotate position in a clockwise order for each side-out for service.

• In 4’s or 2’s the lineup is not specified. All players are able to hit and block on the front row.

• In 4’s or 2’s players must keep track of server rotation but each player may maintain the same court position throughout the match.

SUBSTITUTIONS

• Teams are only permitted to substitute a player on their side-out.

• Side-out substitutions must enter the match into the serving position.

• Players arriving late to a game must wait for a side-out to fill a missing position.

PLAYING THE BALL

SERVES – Server must announce the score prior to serving.

LET SERVES – Serves that hit the net and go over the net to the opponents side will be “live” and are good serves provided they are played by the opposing team or they land in bounds.

THREE CONTACTS – Each team is allowed a maximum of 3 successive contacts of the ball in order to return the ball to the opponent’s area. (Exception: In the action of blocking an attacking ball, the touch, or contact resulting from the block attempt does not constitute one of the three successive contacts.)

ATTACKING AT THE NET - In two’s and four’s every player is eligible to attack the net. In six’s only the three players that are in the front row of the rotation are allowed to attack the net. Violation of this rule would include any hitting or blocking that occurs above the plane of the net.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CONTACT – The ball can contact any number of body parts down to, and including the foot, providing such contacts are simultaneous and the ball rebounds immediately and cleanly after such contact.

HELD BALL – The ball must be contacted cleanly and not held, lifted, pushed, caught, carried or thrown. The ball cannot roll or come to rest on any part of a player’s body. 

HAND SETS A contact of the ball using the fingers of one or two hands to direct the ball toward a teammate is a set. The ball must come into contact with both hands simultaneously and leave both hands simultaneously to avoid a double hit call. 

ATTACKING THE BALL OVER THE OPPONENT’S COURT– A player is not allowed to attack the ball on the opposite side of the net. If the ball is hit above the spiker’s side of the net and then the follow-through causes the spiker’s hand and arm to cross the net without contacting an opponent or the net, the action does not constitute a fault.

BLOCKING

• Blocking is the action close to the net which intercepts the ball coming from the opponents’ side by making contact with the ball before, during or after it crosses the net. In Competitive and Upper Intermediate leagues the block touch is considered one contact and the team has two remaining contacts remaining.

MULTIPLE CONTACTS – Multiple contacts of the ball by a player(s) participating in a block shall be legal provided it is during one attempt to intercept the ball. Multiple contacts of the ball during a block shall be not counted as a contact, even though the ball may make multiple contacts with one or more players of the block.

PARTICIPATION AFTER A BLOCK – Any player participating in a block shall have the right to make the next contact, such contact counting as the first of three hits allowed the team.

BLOCKING A SERVE – Blocking or attacking a serve is prohibited.

BLOCKING A BALL ACROSS THE NET – Blocking of the ball across the net above the opponent’s court shall be legal provided that such a block is:

(1) After a player of the attacking team has spiked the ball, or, in the referee’s judgment, intentionally directed the ball into the opponent’s court, or has exhausted their third allowable hit.

(2) After the opponents’ have hit the ball in such a manner that the ball would clearly cross the net if not touched by a player, provided no member of the attacking team is in a position to make a legal play on the ball

(3) If the ball is falling near the net and no member of the attacking team could reasonably make a play on the ball.

PLAY AT THE NET

PLAYER CONTACT WITH THE NET – No part of the body may touch the net at anytime unless a ball or person driven into the net causes the contact. Player contact with the net in a manner not directly relating to or affecting the course of play is not a violation. Contact with hair will not be considered a fault, but contact by clothing or hats is considered a fault.

INTERFERENCE Beach volleyball allows any and all parts of the body to cross the center line as long as there is no interference with the opposing player.

LEAGUE POLICIES

GAMES:

During the regular season matches are to be played within time allotted (warm up time is included). The scoring format will be 3 games to 21 points using the Rally Scoring Format. You must win by 2 points, however, the score is capped at 23. If the third game has yet to start, and has only 10 minutes remaining in the hour, the third may be played to 15 (cap at 17).

REFS:

ALL GAMES WILL BE SELF-REFFED. THERE WILL BE NO OBLIGATION ON THE PART OF ANY PARTICIPANTS TO SEND REFEREES EARLY OR LEAVE REFEREES AFTER A MATCH.

Captains are responsible for recording the results of their game. Clipboards will be provided on each court to record the scores. Our staff will provide constant reminders with regards to this process.

In cases where teams fail to record their results, both teams will receive losses for the match.

The self-ref policy will continue throughout the preliminary rounds of the playoffs. Our staff will monitor all courts during the playoffs and will be available for any and all questions, concerns, or discrepancies that may arise. We will be able to provide referees for the finals in circumstances where both teams and staff deem necessary.

FORFEITS:

If your team forfeits a match during the season, the following rules apply:

First Offense: Loss of three games.

Second Offense: Three losses and staff reserves the right to remove team from playoffs.

Third Offense: Removal from the league.

Any team that forfeits more than once also forfeits any guarantee or right to a certain number of guaranteed games.

If you know in advance that your team is going to forfeit a game, we encourage you to call our office so as to help us schedule your opponent a game.

Teams have until ten minutes past the designated start time to field a full squad. If at that time one team is unable to field a full team (minimum number of players required according to the rules), it will result in a forfeit of the first game, if they are still unable to field a full team by 20 minutes after the designated start time it will result in a Match forfeit. During the regular season, a team may play a legal game with less than the required number of players if the opposing team consents.

STANDINGS:

The updated standings will be posted weekly, displaying each teams rank within its skill level. Rank is based on winning percentage.

PLAYOFFS:

Playoffs will begin immediately following the end of the regular season and will typically last between 2 and 3 weeks. After teams have been seeded according to their records all captains will receive an email with the 1st week of playoff game times roughly 3 days before their league playoff date. It is the responsibility of ALL TEAMS to check the playoff brackets at the league or online to find out what time they will be playing the following week if they win. In playoffs it is not uncommon, (and in some cases will be necessary), for teams to have more than one match in a given night. No substitutes will be allowed during playoffs. All players for playoffs must be on the teams roster and must have participated in at least one match during the regular season.

Seeding: Teams are seeded based upon a winning percentage, head to head and strength of schedule. Teams may play more than one game per day/night, and/or play games on days/nights other than your regularly scheduled league day/night if necessary. CSSC reserves the right to schedule playoff games on days other than teams regularly scheduled league night. Any questions regarding rules, policies, or eligibility of players must be addressed before the start of the game. Any team that would like to challenge the eligibility of an opposing player must do so before the start of the game. No protests will be considered valid after a game has started.

SPORTSMANSHIP:

The goal of the Strand Leagues is to have fun. We hope that all participants keep that in mind when becoming involved. Although the games may become intense, you still can be competitive while maintaining good sportsmanship. With this said, any behavior deemed unacceptable by staff may result in suspension and/or ejection from a game and/or the league. Abuse of the Strand staff will not be tolerated. The Strand reserves the right to remove a player from a game or a league if they are considered to be bringing down the quality of the league. The Strand will not tolerate fighting! Fighting will be an automatic ejection from any game and in most cases ejection from the league for the remainder of the season.

STAFF:

To coordinate and run the league, our staff will be available at all times to help the league run as smoothly as possible. If you have questions regarding schedules, policies, rule interpretations, directions to the bar, etc. please ask.

LEAGUE CANCELLATION/RAINOUT:

All weather cancellations are posted on our Twitter Feed on our Homepage by 5:00pm. 

PRIZES: League winners will receive League Champion Tshirts and a free entry into the next league!
