IN GAME RULES (derived from FIVB rules: http://www.volleyball.com/rules.aspx) Only the players recorded on the game sheet may enter the court and play in the match. Once the referee and the team captain have signed the game sheet, the recorded players cannot be changed unless a substitution is requested prior to service. Prior to each set, the captain or Rep gives the referee or the scorer the line-up sheet (s) filled in. Once the line sheets are finalized and confirmed by the referee or scorer no more change can be made unless a substitution is requested during the course of the game. When a substitution is called the player being replaced must meet up with the replacer before exiting the game. Each team is only allowed a maximum of 2 substitutions per person in the court. Each team is allowed a maximum of 2 time outs during a set both of which will last for 20 seconds each. Committing a violation will garner a point for the opposing team. THE LIBERO PLAYER (http://library.thinkquest.org/C0122922/English/Getting_Started/The_Rules/Indoor_Volleyball_Rules/S ection_I/chapter_six.html) Designation of the Libero Each team has the right to designate among the list of 12 players one (1) specialised defensive player "Libero". The Libero must be recorded on the scoresheet before the match in the special line reserved for this. His/her number must also be recorded on the line-up sheet of the first set. The Libero can be neither team captain nor game captain.

Equipment The Libero player must wear a uniform (or jacket/bib for the re-designated Libero) whose jersey at least must contrast in colour with that of the other members of the team. The Libero uniform may have a different design, but it must be numbered like the rest of the team members. Permitted actions involving the Libero The playing actions. The Libero is allowed to replace any player in a back row position. He/she is restricted to perform as a back row player and is not allowed to complete an attack hit from anywhere (including playing court and free zone) if at the moment of the contact, the ball is entirely higher than the top of the net. He/she may not serve, block or attempt to block. A player may not complete an attack hit from higher than the top of the net, if the ball is coming from an overhead finger pass by a Libero in his/her front zone. The ball may be freely attacked if the Libero makes the same action from behind the front zone. Replacements of players Replacements involving the Libero are not counted as regular substitutions. They are unlimited, but there must be a rally between two Libero replacements. The Libero can only be replaced by the player whom he/she replaced. Replacements take place before the whistle for service: at the start of each set after the second referee has checked the starting line-up, or while the ball is out of play. A replacement made after the whistle for service but before the service hit should not be rejected but must be the object of a verbal warning after the end of the rally. Subsequent late replacements must be subject to a delay sanction. The Libero and the replacing player may only enter or leave the court by the sideline in front of their team bench between the attack line and the end line. Re-designation of a new Libero In case of injury of the designated Libero, and with the previous approval of the first referee, the coach can re-designate as new Libero one of the players not on the court at the moment of the re-designation. The injured Libero may not re-enter to play for the remainder of the match. The player thus re-designated as Libero must remain as Libero for the remainder of the match. In the case of a re-designated Libero, this player's number must be recorded on the scoresheet remarks box and on the line-up sheet for the following set. THE USE OF THE LIBERO IS AN OPTION AND NOT A REQUIREMENT. VIOLATIONS A position fault is committed if a player is not in his/her correct position prior to the service.

Referees and scorers are responsible in determining the moment when the fault was committed and all points gained by the team, which committed the fault, will be canceled but the opposing teams score shall not be altered.
