Transcript About Volleyball SOME FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW • There are six people on a team—no more nor no less are allowed on their side of the playing court when the game is under way. • The object of the game is to have the ball strike the floor on the opponent's side of the court. • On any given play, each team has a maximum of 3 hits to accomplish this objective. They may take less than 3 hits—never more. • A player may not make contact with the ball twice in succession. The 3 plays that are exempt from this rule are: (1) successive contacts by blockers, (2) simultaneous contacts by teammates, (3) simultaneous contacts by opponents. The players participating in any such contacts may strike the ball on the next contact. • The defensive team attempts to keep the ball from hitting the floor on their side, by blocking it at the net or digging it in the backcourt. • The ball must be clearly hit. It cannot be thrown. • A team only makes points when it serves. The serving team keeps the serve as long as they make a point; the opposing team takes over the serve when the serving team fails to make a point—and then they are on the attack. (This is different than tennis where one team serves an entire game, or table tennis where the serve is alternated every 5 points.) • The first team scoring 15 points, or the most points in 8 minutes of actual playing time, wins the game, provided there is a two-point advantage. There are many finer points to the game than those outlined above, but if you read these basic rules over a couple of times while you are watching, it will help you better understand what you are seeing. THE MAN ON THE STAND ISN'T WHISTLE-HAPPY—THAT'S HIS JOB Volleyball is a game of judgment calls. The referee is top man. He has an umpire, a scorekeeper, and linesman to help him, but his decision is law. He will blow his whistle if he detects either a foul, an error, or a disruption of play. THE 5 MOST FREQUENT WHISTLE STOPS 1. Bad serve. The server must hit the ball into the opponent's area. If it goes out of bounds, or touches the net in any manner, the whistle blows and the other side has a serving opportunity. 2. Ball not hit cleanly. The ball must be clearly hit. When in the opinion of the official the ball came visibly to rest at contact, the whistle blows and a foul is called. 3. Ball hit out of bounds. Many times this is a close decision. If the ball strikes any part of the line marking the outer perimeter of the court—the ball is good. If it misses, the man blows his whistle. 4. More than 3 hits. The maximum number of allowable hits for any one team on a play is three. If in the official's opinion there were more than 3 hits—he toots. That is why you will hear blockers yelling "no" at the net, to indicate they did not touch the ball on the block and his team knows they have 3 hits coming. 5. Backcourt Spike. The men in the backcourt cannot spike the ball unless they are at least 10 feet behind the net. If they do, it is a foul, regardless of whether it lands safely on the opponent's side of the court or not.
