Indoor Volleyball Rules & Regulations

General Rules

The rules of the game will largely be governed by the Official FIVB Rules. Rules mentioned here supersede the FIVB rules.


Teams will consist of a minimum of 4 players on the court with a maximum of 4 males. If a team cannot provide the minimum number of players, they will forfeit the match. Teams are allowed to bring in players (maximum 2) not on their regular roster provided the skill level does not exceed that of the regular player. Notify the opposing team and the league coordinator beforehand if your team will not be able to play at the scheduled time.


The nets will be setup in Gym 3 by CIF staff. R+T Park will provide volleyballs, which will be stored at the CIF equipment desk.


Participants will be able to use the change rooms and showers at CIF.


Matches will consist of 3 sets.

Sets will be played using rally point scoring to 25 points, including the 3rd set (there should be enough time). Sets must be won by a minimum 2 point lead. The score of each set will be capped at 27 points.

Teams will earn 1 point for each set won in the match.

Match scores will be reported to the league coordinator via email. Please report the results of all 3 sets.


A maximum of five serves are allowed for each server. Once this maximum has been reached, the serving team will rotate positions and continue to serve.

Serves may not be blocked or spiked.

A double hit on the first bump after the serve is allowed.

Playing at the Net

Player contact with the net is allowed provided it does not interfere with play and is not excessive.

Touches made during an attempted block do not count toward a team’s 3-hit limit. Furthermore, a player who has hit the ball during an attempted block may immediately hit the ball again as the team’s first hit.

When two opponents touch the ball simultaneously over the net and the ball goes out, it is the fault of the team on the opposite side of the net from where the ball lands.

A player may reach beyond the net after hitting the ball during an attack hit provided such action does not interfere with play.

A player may reach beyond the net while blocking only after the opposition has executed their attack hit.

A player may penetrate under the net provide it does not interfere with play. A player’s foot may not completely cross the centre line under the net.

Playing with Feet

Contacting the ball with feet is allowed. Please try to do so in a safe manner. If an injury occurs due to the use of feet, this rule will be revoked.
