A and AA/Open leagues have a minimum age requirement of 16 years. There is no minimum age for B/BB leagues, however, the Virginia Beach Field House reserves the right to remove minors from the league.
All A team’s will play by beach rules.
As a court sport, Beach Volleyball involves a number of strict rules, including:
Players are allowed to touch the ball three times maximum before they return it across the court – blocks included.
There are a number of moves and hits that are classed as illegal in Beach Volleyball, including “hand touches”, “tips” and “dinks”.
Players are permitted to cross below the net in Beach Volleyball – but this will be classed as a foul if it tampers or interferes with the opposing team’s play.
There is no set position for players, meaning they can move to any part of the court they wish at any time – provided it is on their side.
Player Requirements/Safety for 4’s
4 players on the court – for coed, 1 male and 1 female must be on the court minimum at all times
The opposing team captain may waive the minimum player requirement AND have the results of the match COUNT towards the standings. Agreeing that the results of the match COUNT must be made clear at the net prior to the start of play by the team captains. Agreeing to play does not infer that the match counts unless this is explicitly decided by the opposing team captain.
Each player must sign a waiver before his/her first game. Note: If you add a player to your team throughout the year, that player must sign a waiver before they play, even if it is only for one game.
