General Rules for all divisions
- Women's height net.
- Men can block men, but cannot block Women. Men cannot fake blocking a woman.
- Men cannot attack from in front of the 3m line, and the ball must visibly go up.
- No open hand tips.
- Due to outdoor conditions, the ball may be tossed and dropped once as long as it falls to the ground without the server touching it.
- A block is considered one of the three touches.
- Reffing - During pool play, 1 team will be R1 and R2. In the event of a dispute about a ball being in or out, R1 will decide or call a replay.
- Reffing assignments will be given at the start of bracket play. In general, teams that lose will be given reffing duties on that court, but some changes may be made to speed up tournament play.
- If a team does not show up for their reffing assignments, they will not be invited back to play next year. Do not leave immediately after losing without reffing one more match. (The tournament director will attempt to find refs for teams that need to travel home.)
- In the case of an injury during tournament play, only a player from the same division or lower who has already been eliminated can sub in. During pool play anyone can sub in as long as they are of equivalent or lower skill level. This will be determined by the tournament director.
- Setting over the net is not allowed.
- Open hand serve receive is not allowed for any division.
Division Specific Rules
- For the AA and A divisions, a double is defined as both hands not contacting the ball simultaneously or more than two rotations of the ball.
- For the BB Division, a double will be called if both hands don't touch the ball simultaneously or if it's really spinning. Call your own hands if you feel it was really bad.
- For all other divisions, there is no double contact on setting unless you call yourself.
