Game Format

Each week teams switch between playing from 6:00PM – 8:00PM and 8:00PM – 10:00PM. In the 2 hr time-slot teams will play 2 games against 2 teams. Each game is 2 sets to 21 (capped at 21). All games are capped at 40 minutes in length. Game are expected to start on time. In tiered play the winning team will move up and the losing team will move down. All leagues have a capacity of 18 teams (3 teams per tier).

 Substitutions

It is the teams responsibility to find a replacement if a player is unable to play. If a team does not have enough players to play 5 minutes after game time they will forfeit the first set; if a team does not have enough players 15 minutes after game time they will forfeit the whole game. After 5 games forfeit you will be removed from the league without reimbursement (please note that missing 5 games is the equivalent of missing 2.5 nights of league). Subs must have played in a minimum of 2 nights for the same team in order to qualify for playoffs. Players in the same league are allowed to sub for the same tier or a higher tier but may not sub for a team in a lower tier (ie: if I play in Tier 2 I may sub for a team in Tier 1 or 2 but not Tiers 3 or lower). Any sub from outside of the league must be deemed “equal or lesser value” than the player whom they are subbing for – this is based on recent tournament finishes and is at the final discretion of the Beach Pro.

Mid set substitutions (as you would see in indoor) are NOT ALLOWED. New players are permitted to start each set, but only in the event of injury would we allow a replacement player to come in mid set (this does not apply to playoffs where in the event of a mid set injury that team would forfeit). 

Determining the Winning Team
(Tie Breakers)

In the tiered play, the winner is determined by:
The team with the most sets won.
The team with the most games won.
The team with the most points.
If all three teams have the same number of games won at the end of the night then the point differential is between all three teams.  If only two teams have the same number of games won then the tie break point differential is only between the game played between those two teams.

If two teams finished their match with a tied score, for example:  16-21 21-16  then the teams will play an additional point.  The score would then be recorded on the sheet as  17-21  21-16 OR 16-21 21-17 depending on which team won.

 

Rules

All leagues follow the latest FIVB rules. All teams are expected to know the official rules and abide by them. The rules outlined below are the only changes Garneau will abide by for the 2019 season – they also highlight some key FIVB rules. Any rule discrepancies or questions will be the final decision of the Beach Pro.

 

Coed Reverse 2’s Rules

  • Coed teams must consist of 1 female and 1 male.
  • Men can only attack the ball above the height of the net from behind a 3-meter attack line and are not allowed to block.
  • Between the 3-meter attack line and the net men can attack only if the ball is hit under the height of the net (attack must have an upward trajectory before it drops).
  • Women can hit from anywhere, jump serving and blocking is permitted.
  • Men are not permitted to jump serve. A reserve can be requested in the event of a jump serve.

Coed 4’s Rules

  • There must be at least 1 male and 1 female on the court at all times – teams are permitted to play with as few as 2 players.
  • The first contact over the net cannot be a set.
  • If a player sets a ball over the net, the player’s body must be square to the direction of the set. Side sets are not allowed.
  • Open hand tips (ball redirection with your fingers/thumb) is not allowed.
  • Players must rotate serving order – but are not required to rotate court position.
  • No player shall touch the net with any part of their body.
  • For all rules above if a foul occurs, a play is stopped and a point awarded to the opposing team.
  • A touch on the block counts as a touch, but the player who contacted the ball on the block may sequentially play the ball again.

Players Cards

Garneau Player Cards are given to players who are registered in a Garneau League. League players are not able to reserve courts, they are only allowed to play on courts if they are not booked. Teams are only entitled to 2 players cards for 2’s leagues and 4 player cards for the coed 4’s league – additional players or subs will have to pay for a full membership or pay the $5 drop-in fee each time they use the courts.

League members can purchase a full membership for an extra $75. The added benefit is that full members are able to reserve courts at no charge (up to 14 days in advance for 1 hr/day). So in a case where a group of league players play regularly, you only need one person to have a membership to reserve a court.
