Refereeing and Rules

Officials should be aware of the rules that govern the game and the rules of the HVA.

Various downloads are available under Documents.

The HVA always follows the current FIVB rules of volleyball. Please Google for the most recent official rules or search the FIVB website.

We will post any recent amendments to the HVA rules here if they are not currently incorporated in to the rules in the Documents section.

In Season Rule Amendments

Agreed unanimously at HVA Committee Meeting of 11/12/2018:

  1. Rule C5 (and elsewhere) - you are deemed to have "played" a match if you are included on the scoresheet.
  2. Rule G2 - last two bullet points replaced with a single bullet point reading "largest set point difference (set points for, minus set points against)".

These changes will be formally adopted within the rules at the next AGM.
