1 USA Volleyball REFEREE EXAM Form C Although USA Volleyball (USAV) and PAVO collaborate in developing the referee examinations, for clarity and simplification, the Form A and Form B examinations are specific to each rules code. However, the Form C exam is utilized by USA Volleyball for entry-level referees, junior players and coaches, and adult player/team referees, as well as for training and educational purposes. This is the USAV Form C examination. If a person taking this written exam needs testing accommodations, that person should approach the test administrator to report those needs and provide documentation to support the requirement for those testing accommodations. Exam Instructions and Information: Read each question thoroughly and answer each question on the attached answer sheet using current USA Volleyball Domestic Competition Regulations (DCR). Any USAV clarification boxes in the DCR take precedence over the corresponding FIVB rule, and the clarifications, if applicable, should be used when considering each answer. Important rules clarifications and points of emphasis are also included in the DCR, under the Techniques, Mechanics & Procedures section. Team S refers to the serving team, and Team R refers to the receiving team. When a team s serve or receive status is not relevant to the question, Team A or Team B is used to differentiate the teams. The following assumptions pertain to each question unless other conditions are specifically noted: Rule ( Pursuit Rule ) is in effect. Do not consider special rules used in Open competition or 14 and Under competition unless specifically noted in the question. No sanctions (team or individual) have been assessed other than those specifically described in the question. The penalty area is not being used. Requests for interruptions (time-outs, substitutions) or line-up checks have not been acknowledged (whistled) by the referees. Unless otherwise noted, the referees signal sequence is not relevant when answering the question. Exam questions cover USAV Case Book material. USA Volleyball Exam Instructions Form C 2013

2 NAME: USAV REGION: DATE: USAV SCORE: Question # Answer Question # Answer Page 2 of 6 USA Volleyball Exam Answer Sheet Form C 2013

3 For the purpose of this test use the following information: R = RECEIVING TEAM R1 = RIGHT BACK R2 = RIGHT FRONT R3 = CENTER FRONT R4 = LEFT FRONT R5 = LEFT BACK R6 = CENTER BACK S = SERVING TEAM S1 = RIGHT BACK S2 = RIGHT FRONT S3 = CENTER FRONT S4 = LEFT FRONT S5 = LEFT BACK S6 = CENTER BACK DIRECTIONS: Read each situation carefully. Decide whether the statement is true (T) or false (F). Write either T or F in the space provided on the answer sheet. Assume no other conditions exist except those specifically mentioned in the question. 1. The Libero, who is in the front zone near the net, reaches higher than the top of the net in an attempt to block the ball coming from the opponent, but the Libero does not touch the ball. The referees should allow play to continue. 2. Team B wears black shorts. The shorts are the same style and length, but some have 4 white stripes down the side and some do not. This team is considered to have legal uniforms. 3. At the moment of service contact, S1 has one foot in contact with the sideline extension. S1 s foot is not touching the playing surface beyond the sideline, therefore there is no service fault. 4. During time-outs, teams may warm up with practice balls anywhere in the free zone surrounding their court. 5. The second referee may whistle to stop play when the ball contacts the floor if the first referee is not in position to see the ball land. 6. If simultaneous contact with the ball above the net by two opponents leads to extended contact (joust), a double fault has occurred and the rally is replayed. 7. After the third team hit by Team S, R4 reaches over the net and attacks the ball before it enters the vertical plane of the net. Since the attack took place after Team S s third team hit, no violation has occurred. 8. R6 is in the front zone near the net and jumps to try to make the team s second contact. The ball enters the plane of the net where both R6 and S2 simultaneously touch the ball above the top of the net. R6 s action is an illegal block. 9. One assistant coach at a time may stand and give instructions to players on the court but cannot otherwise intervene in the match. Page 3 of 7

4 10. As the picture above indicates, the second referee should always move to the blocker s side of the net before players start some type of blocking action. 11. When a team member is warned with a yellow card for unsporting conduct between sets, the warning is recorded on the scoresheet for the subsequent set. 12. The Libero may be designated as team captain. 13. The Libero replaces player #9 in the back row. When the Libero s position rotates to the front row, player #14 replaces the Libero. The assistant scorer should notify the referees before the contact of the next serve. 14. At the end of a nondeciding set, the first referee whistles and signals end of set, and then whistles and signals to direct the teams to immediately change courts without sending the teams to their respective end lines. 15. Once a substitution has been recognized (whistled) by a referee, the substitute is required to enter the match. 16. The second referee should notify a coach of the number of substitutions used by that team beginning with that team s 9 th substitution. 17. When a player becomes injured, no other substitution request can legally be made by that team until the injury situation is resolved. 18. S3 attacks the ball and then touches the bottom of the net as she lands, but before beginning her transition to the next play. The second referee should allow play to continue. 19. An exceptional substitution never counts as one of the team s 12 allowable substitutions. 20. In the picture above Team A #3 and Team B #1 legally and simultaneously contact a ball above the top of the net. The ball lands out of bounds on Team B s side of the net. The first referee should whistle and indicate that Team B wins the rally. Page 4 of 7

5 21. A team requests a third time-out, but the second referee denies the request without blowing the whistle to acknowledge it. An improper request should be recorded on the scoresheet at the end of the rally. 22. For minor misconduct offenses, the first referee can warn a player or coach in two stages, first by issuing a verbal warning and second by using a yellow card as a warning. 23. When a team s substitution request includes both a legal and an illegal substitute, both substitutions are denied and a delay sanction is assessed. 24. The second referee is responsible for whistling and signaling out when a ball contacts the antenna, net cables or the post outside the antenna on the second referee s side of the net. 25. Players may participate in warm-ups and in the match while wearing earrings, provided the earrings are covered with tape. 26. When a rotation fault (wrong server) occurs, but no point previously awarded, the scorer must still record the wrong server information in the Remarks section of the scoresheet. 27. An injured Libero, who has been replaced by redesignation, may not return to play in that match. 28. Player #8 enters the substitution zone and the second referee whistles to recognize the substitution request. The head coach immediately says that no substitution is wanted at this time. The substitution request can be withdrawn, but a delay sanction is assessed. 29. As per the picture above, the player has just played a ball near the net and has turned to move away from the net to get into position for the next play. During this action, the player s foot crosses completely beyond the center line and touches the opponent s court. The player has committed a center line fault even if no opponent is in the vicinity of the player s foot. 30. The first referee authorizes the service (beckons) and then Team S s Libero replaces #11. The Team S server then contacts the ball. The first referee should stop the rally and assess a delay sanction to Team S. 31. The second referee whistles 15 seconds prior to the end of the interval between sets to notify teams that they must begin their return to the court. 37 Page 5 of 7

6 32. When the first team scores the eighth point in the deciding set of a match, the first referee will whistle and direct teams to immediately change courts without sending the teams to their respective end lines. 33. While checking the line-ups at the start of the match, the second referee notices that Team R s #3 should be on the court instead of Team R s #6. The coach says there is no #3 on the team. A substitution must be recorded to allow player #6 to start the match. 34. All team and individual sanctions remain in force for the entire match. 35. R4 contacts S3 in the space under the net. This contact prevents S3 from playing the ball. The second referee should whistle and signal a center line fault by R A server may take a starting position outside the service zone before a service attempt provided the position is on the playing surface. 37. A player is wearing a hard plaster cast on the wrist/forearm. The cast is padded with ½ foam. The referees should rule that the player is not allowed to participate even though the cast is padded. 38. Team B has been assessed a delay warning in the current set. Later in the same set, the coach for Team B clearly requests a third time-out after the first referee has authorized the serve. The second referee ignores the request and play continues. Once the rally is completed, Team B should be sanctioned with a delay penalty. 39. Coaches must remain at least 1.75 meters (5 10 ) from the court when the ball is in play. 40. A player who has been replaced by exceptional substitution may return to play in a subsequent set in that match. 41. A team is never permitted to begin, or continue, a match with less than six players. 42. For 14 and Under competition, a re-serve is allowed for each service attempt. The player is allowed five seconds for the first service attempt and five seconds for the second service attempt. 43. The warm-up area is at the end of the bench or bench area, and no nearer to the court than the front of the team bench. 44. A substitution request before the start of a set is not permitted. 45. The Liberos may serve in one position in the service order. 46. During juniors competition, both coaches must sign the scoresheet at the end of the match. 47. In juniors competition, when one team has the use of the entire court for their warm-ups, the opponents must remain at or near their team bench and may not use practice balls to warm up, or optionally shag balls for the opposing team. 48. The Libero, while standing on the attack line, uses overhand finger action to set the ball. S4 attacks the ball from behind the attack line while the ball is completely higher than the top of the net. The referees should allow play to continue. Page 6 of 7

7 49. When opposing teams simultaneously request a substitution, the second referee blows a separate whistle for each team s request. 50. As shown in the picture above, Team A #4 saved an errant pass with a legal contact while the ball is over a playable surface. Following this play Team A #4 lands with one foot off the playable surface. The referees should allow play to continue. Page 7 of 7
