Social Leagues Info
Social Leagues are run 4 times a year based around School Terms , We try and get a minimum of 9 nights of competition where possible. The following are some of the requirements for Teams wishing to play:
- Teams are not required to be in uniform – However extra competition points are given to those who are. (Uniform defined as common playing Top)
- We will supply balls for games and warm ups – sign out before game , must be returned as soon as game is finished – If not returned you will be charged replacement cost
- For Social grades we supply the referees – Competitive grades will be required to do duty either before or after their game (4/5 times for a 9/10 week league)
- PN Volleyball reserve the right to move teams up or down grades to ensure fair competition.
- Teams that have not paid their full fees by Week 3 will be removed from the competition until their fees are paid.
- There is NO Criteria For Mixed Teams – They will play in the Division “suitable to their level”. Players In Division 1 Cannot also play in Social Grade Teams (Div 3, 4, 5 or 6) There will be some players whom we will refuse to allow to play in lower grades due to skill level ( Spiking)
- Division 3 and 4 can only have a maximum of 1 player from a higher grade in them. (More than 1 needs prior approval – Fair Teams in Grades is Priority!) Players from Div 1/2 who are over 50 years of age are exempt this rule
- Our Aim is to Provide Fun Competitive Volleyball with even Grades.
We play to FIVB Rules with changes made for time limitations (3 sets or 55 Minutes whichever comes first – Note all 3 sets count for points)
No Jump Serving allowed Below Div 1/2.
Teams on Duty are required to have 2 referees. Failure to do so will result in loss of referee point.
