Playing on Sport Court
During a rally, the last point of contact prior to playing the ball must be the Sport Court.
o one foot on the sport court, one foot on the cement = play continues
o jump in the air off of the sport and play the ball prior to coming in contact with the cement = play is whistled dead and point is awarded to other team;
o leave the playing surface and step on a chair and play the ball = play is whistled dead and point is awarded to other team
• Any service action must be initiated with at least one foot in contact with the sport court.
• These rules are in place to minimize the risk to our athletes’ safety.
