USA All-Star Rule Differences

The USA All-Star Championships serves as an opportunity for athletes to play under international rule sets and allows officials training to become international officials the opportunity to officiate under such rules.  

What are some of the key rule differences?
  • The Libero is designated for the entire match and cannot serve. 
  • Substitutions are limited.
  • Players not in the match must be seated on the bench or in the warm-up box. 
  • A ball that hits the ceiling is out of play, and the rally ends.
  • Only the head coach can stand. 
  • Matches are best 3 out of 5 sets.  As a general rule, two matches are played each day. 
  • If a timeout has not already been called, a technical timeout is taken when the first team reaches 13 points.  Teams must wait outside the court until they are summoned back onto the court by the R2.
  • Simultaneous contact by two players counts as two hits

How do these rule differences impact our NCR High Performance athletes?

 Due to limited substitutions and limited roster size, NCR All-Star players should be able to fill multiple roles.  NCR High Performance Coaches will take this into consideration when building their final rosters.  Playing time will not be equal and is earned through a combination of attitude, effort, skill and what the coaches believe is best for the team.
