Information Regarding the Rules Volleyball

Recent Volleyball Rule Changes – Indoor Volleyball

  • Ball contact of the net on serve – major rule change was the continuation of play if the ball hit the net on serve! This rule was a logical next step in the game and but only came into affect in the late 90’s.
  • Overhand Serve Reception – In the late 90’s early 2000 this rule came into affect in indoor volleyball and basically changed the way the game was played. What this rule meant was that no longer did players digging the ball on service reception have to bump pass it off their arms, rather now they could move forward and set the ball with their hands. What also was important about this rule was that players could double the contact and the contact while setting did not have to be clean like traditional setting. The result of this rule change was that now outside hitters did not have to be as skilled in passing as before so the players got bigger and became more hitting / blocking focused!
  • Introduction of the Libero Position – The introduction of the Libero Position in the late 90’s, early 2000 completely changed the way the game was played at multiple levels! What this did was open up opportunities for defensive specialist to be more a part of the game. This meant that on serve receive you had full time experts that could take larger parts of the court thereby putting less pressure on the outside hitters for passing serves! Additionally you had defensive players that were more involved in the game and had bigger roles in team defense.
  • Increased the Number of Substitutions – New rule changes have dramatically increased the number of substitutions! The result is that some teams are once again running more 6-2 offenses.
