Clarification on a Signal change and new rule this season

1.  When ball goes under the net BETWEEN THE POLES, we will now be pointing to the Center Line with appropriate Index finger for “line violation.” This is now same as college and USAV.  IF the ball lands on the center line, it is signal “IN.”
2.  11.5.3 – Teams may warm up between sets on their half of court in their playable area. That includes in front of the attack line. If a team is not warming up on their court, then old rule still applies:  teams must stay beyond their attack line and sub zone areas.  IMPORTANT:  any random balls that go under the net due to warm up activity – let the players figure out getting their ball back or not. IF an activity or drill is constantly sending balls to the opponents side during set interval, then R2 will need to say something to the coach. (Rule 13)
Last, keep your pre-match conference to 1 minute and your line judge instructions to 5 minutes.
Be mindful that we have been hired to service these schools, our clients. And we should do as much as possible to want us back again and again!
Have a great first week!!
