5 FIVB Rules Changes Misconduct /Sanctions Old FIVB Rule 21.1 Minor misconduct offenses are not subject to sanctions. It is the first referee s duty to prevent the teams from approaching the sanctioning level by issuing a verbal or hand signal warning to a team member or to the team through the game captain. This warning is not a sanction and has no immediate consequences. It should not be recorded on the scoresheet Sanction Cards Warning: verbal or hand signal, no card Penalty: yellow card Expulsion: red card Disqualification: yellow + red card (jointly) New FIVB Rule 21.1 Minor misconduct offences are not subject to sanctions. It is the 1st referee s duty to prevent the teams from approaching the sanctioning level. This is done in two stages: Stage 1: by issuing a verbal warning through the game captain; Stage 2: by use of a YELLOW CARD to the team member(s) concerned. This formal warning is not in itself a sanction but a symbol that the team member (and by extension the team) has reached the sanctioning level for the match. It is recorded in the score sheet but has no immediate consequences. 5

7 USAV Rules Modifications Team Composition Old USAV Rule A team may consist of up to 12 players, one coach, one assistant coach, one trainer and one medical doctor (unless modified by the Specific Competition Regulations). For FIVB World and Official Competitions, the medical doctor and trainer must be ac- credited beforehand by the FIVB. New FIVB Rule For the match, a team may consist of up to 12 players, plus Coaching Staff: one coach, a maximum of two assistant coaches, Medical Staff: one team therapist and one medical doctor. Only those listed on the score sheet may normally enter the Competition/ Control Area and take part in the official warm up and in the match. For FIVB, World and Official Competitions the medical doctor and team therapist must be accredited beforehand by the FIVB. New USAV Rule Adds unless modified by the specific Competition Regulations. 7

8 USAV Rules Modifications Assistant Coach Old USAV Rule One assistant coach at a time may leave the bench to give instructions to the players on the court. During play, this assistant coach may give these instructions while standing or walking within the free zone in front of his/her team s bench from the extension of the attack line up to the warm-up area, and no closer to the court than 1.75 m (5 10 ) from the sideline and its extension, without disturbing or delaying the match. The extension of the attack line is drawn to a distance of 1.75 m (5 10 ) from the sideline. New USAV Rule One assistant coach at a time may stand to give instructions to the players on the court, but has no right to intervene in the match. During play, this assistant coach may give these instructions while standing or walking within the free zone in front of his/her team s bench from the extension of the attack line up to the warm-up area, and no closer to the court than 1.75 m (5 10 ) from the sideline and its extension, without disturbing or delaying the match. 8

9 USAV Rules Modifications Illegal Player Old USAV Rule If the positional fault is discovered before the opponent serves, all points scored subsequent to the fault must be cancelled. In addition, all time-outs taken by the team not at fault, as well as substitutions and team sanctions charged to either team subsequent to the commission of the positional fault, must be cancelled. Individual misconduct sanctions assessed to either team, and time-outs taken by the team at fault, are not cancelled. If the points scored while the player was out of position can not be determined or the opponents have served, then a loss of rally is the only penalty charged. The opponents retain any points scored. FIVB Rule in effect: However, if the coach wishes to keep such non-recorded player(s) on the court, he/she has to request regular substitution(s), which will then be recorded on the scoresheet. If a discrepancy between player positions and the line-up sheet is discovered later, the team at fault must revert to the correct positions. All points scored by the team from the exact moment of the fault up to the discovery of the fault are cancelled. The opponent s points remain valid and in addition, they receive a point and the next service. 9

10 USAV Rules Modifications Illegal Player Old USAV Rule & If the positional fault is discovered before the opponent serves, all points scored subsequent to the fault must be cancelled. In addition, all time-outs taken by the team not at fault, as well as substitutions and team sanctions charged to either team subsequent to the commission of the positional fault, must be cancelled. Individual misconduct sanctions assessed to either team, and time-outs taken by the team at fault, are not cancelled. If the points scored while the player was out of position can not be determined or the opponents have served, then a loss of rally is the only penalty charged. The opponents retain any points scored If the rotational fault is discovered before the opponent serves, all points scored subsequent to the fault must be cancelled. In addition, all time-outs taken by the team not at fault, as well as substitutions and team sanctions charged to either team subsequent to the commission of the rotational fault, must be cancelled. Individual misconduct sanctions assessed to either team, and time-outs taken by the team at fault, are not cancelled. If the points scored while the player was out of rotation order can not be determined or the opponents have served, then a loss of rally is the only penalty charged. The opponents retain any points scored. FIVB Rules in effect: A positional fault leads to the following consequences: the team is sanctioned with a point and service to the opponent; players positions are rectified Additionally, the scorer should determine the exact mo- ment when the fault was committed and all points scored subsequently by the team at fault must be cancelled. The opponent s points remain valid. If that moment cannot be determined, no point(s) cancellation takes place, and a point and service to the opponent is the only sanction 10

11 USAV Rules Modifications Illegal Player Old USAV Rule a. No substitution will be charged to the team or player(s), even if required to correct the wrong entry. In addition, any player or team substitutions charged at the time of the wrong entry shall be removed from the scoresheet as though they had never occurred; and b. If the team at fault is receiving and discovery is after the opponents have served, all points previously scored by the offending team shall be retained. The serving team will be awarded a point unless the error is discovered after the serving team has scored a point. In this case, no additional point will be awarded. c. If it is not possible to determine when the error first occurred and the offending team is serving, only the last point in that term of service will be removed. FIVB Rule When a team has made an illegal substitution and the play has been resumed the following procedure shall apply: the team is penalized with a point and service to the opponent, the substitution is rectified, the points scored by the team at fault since the fault was committed are cancelled. The opponent s points remain valid New USAV Rule a. No substitution will be charged to the team or player(s), even if required to correct the wrong entry. In addition, any player or team substitutions charged at the time of the wrong entry shall be removed from the scoresheet as though they had never occurred; and b. If it is not possible to determine when the error first occurred and the offending team is serving, only the last point in that term of service will be removed. 11

12 USAV Rules Modifications Centerline Old USAV Rule Penetration into the opponent s court, beyond the center line: To touch the opponent s court with a foot (feet) is permitted, provided that some part of the penetrating foot (feet) remains either in contact with or directly above the center line; To touch the opponent s court with any part of the body above the feet is permitted provided that it does not interfere with the opponent s play. New USAV Rule Encroachment into the opponent s court with the foot, feet or hand(s) is permitted, provided some part of the encroaching extremity remains in contact with or directly above the center line, and there is no interference with opponents. It is not a fault to contact the opponent s team court with the hair Encroachment into the opponent s court with any part of the body is permitted, provided some part of the body remains either in contact with or directly above the center line, and there is no interference with opponents. In addition, completely crossing the center line with the foot, feet or hands, or encroachment with other body parts must not present a safety hazard to opponents. 12

13 FIVB Rules Changes The Libero Old FIVB Rule The Acting Libero can only be replaced by the regular replacement player for that position, or by the second Libero. The regular replacement player may replace either Libero. The coach has the right to replace the Acting Libero with the second Libero for any reason after a completed rally at any time during the match (the original Libero may not re-enter to play for the remainder of the match). In case of illness or injury to the reserve Libero, the coach may designate as Libero for the remainder of the match any other player (except the original Libero) not on the court at the moment of the redesignation The consequences of an illegal Libero replacement are the same as those for a rotational fault. New FIVB Rule An illegal Libero replacement can involve (amongst others) no completed rally between Libero replacements, the Libero being replaced by a player other than the second Libero or the regular replacement player. An illegal Libero replacement should be considered in the same way as an illegal substitution: should the illegal Libero replacement be noticed before the start of the next rally, then this is corrected by the referees, and the team is sanctioned for delay; should the illegal Libero replacement be noticed after the service hit, the consequences are the same as for an illegal substitution. 13

14 FIVB Rules Changes The Libero Old FIVB Rule The Acting Libero can only be replaced by the regular replacement player for that position, or by the second Libero. The regular replacement player may replace either Libero. The coach has the right to replace the Acting Libero with the second Libero for any reason after a completed rally at any time during the match (the original Libero may not re-enter to play for the remainder of the match). In case of illness or injury to the reserve Libero, the coach may designate as Libero for the remainder of the match any other player (except the original Libero) not on the court at the moment of the redesignation The consequences of an illegal Libero replacement are the same as those for a rotational fault. New FIVB Rule The Libero becomes unable to play if injured, ill, expelled or disqualified. The Libero can be declared unable to play for any reason by the coach or, in the absence of a coach, by the game captain If the Acting Libero becomes unable to play, he/she may be replaced by the regular replacement player or immediately and directly to court by a redesignated Libero. However, a Libero who is the subject of a re-designation may not play for the remainder of the match. If the Libero is not on court when declared unable to play, he/she may also be the subject of a redesignation. The Libero declared unable to play may not play for the remainder of the match. 14

15 USAV Rules Modifications The Libero FIVB Rule Each team has the right to designate from the list of players on the score sheet up to two specialist defensive players: Liberos. New USAV Rule (NOT exact wording) Each team has the right to designate up to two specialized defensive players: Liberos. If two Liberos are designated at the beginning of the match (on the first set lineup sheet), they are designated as Liberos for the entire match. If one Libero is designated at the beginning of the match (on the first set lineup sheet), the team may change the designated Libero for any subsequent set, may choose to keep the same Libero for any subsequent set, or may choose to not use a Libero for any subsequent set, provided that a maximum of one Libero be designated for play during any given set. If no Libero is designated at the beginning of the match (on the first set lineup sheet), the team may designate a single Libero for any subsequent set or may choose to not use a Libero for any subsequent set, provided that a maximum of one Libero be designated for play during any given set. 15
