About the Event



Being competitive on the field is applauded and encouraged.  It is also important to understand that there is a fine line between being competitive and being unsportsmanlike.  All players and referees should treat one another with respect on the field and after the game.  Everyone here in the end is on the Wildcats Team and we should please keep safety and sportsmanship in mind out there.  THIS IS FOR FUN.

Tournament Rules

-  This will be a Double Elimination bracket structure.  Teams will be matched automatically by their seeding and progression during the tournament.

-  Each match will be played to 10.

-  All games have a 20 minute cap to play all 3 matches.

-  Playoff games will be played to 15 with a 30 minute cap.

-  In the event of a tie during playoffs, the team will be allotted a 5 minute sudden death match for regular play.

Team Size

Teams may consist of 4 to 6 players with a maximum of 4 players on the court at one time.  Teams may substitute / switch players during their serve, before the serve and not on the fly.

Beginning of the Game

Official will call both captains to the net at the beginning of the game to clarify any court rules and conduct a coin toss.  The winning team can choose to serve, receive or pick a side to play on.  The losing team then pics the remaining choice.  Prior to the second game, the teams will switch sides and the serving team from game one will receive and vice versa.  Prior to third game, teams will switch sides again returning to the original serving team.

General Rules

·  Each team has one timeout per game that they may choose to use (fifteen seconds in length).

·  Let serves (serves that contact the net and then cross to the receiving side) count as legal serves

·  A double contact by the same player while making one attempt to play the ball is allowed on the first contact on a side. This applies each time the ball crosses the net to the other side.

·  There are no male/female attacking rules in coed leagues

·  A block does not count as one of a team’s three contacts.

·  A player may not block a serve or attack a serve above the plane of the net.

·  No player may touch the net during a play, unless the ball or an opposing player causes the contact with the net. Player contact with the net in a manner not directly relating to or affecting the course of play is NOT a violation.

·  Players may reach over the net to block any attack or attempt to play the ball over the net. Other contacts can be played only once they cross into the plane of the net.

·  If games are being played on adjacent courts, players may not cross into another court. If a player crosses into an adjacent court either before, during, or after playing a ball, he or she will be called out of bounds with the point awarded to the other team.

·  Subbing is allowed in between points. All subs must be made in a consistent manner throughout a game.

·  Officials will look for and call the following faults:

Carry/lift, double contact, 4 contacts, foot fault (on serve), out of bounds, back row attack, net violation, center line violation, over the net (roofing)

·  Officials can issue yellow and or red cards at their discretion. Players Sports Group reserves the right to suspend any player receiving a red card.

·  No open hand tipping is allowed.  Players must set the ball directly forward or directly backward when setting the ball over the net.

·  Teams do not have to rotate if only 4 players other than keeping in the correct serving order.
