Besides the two main referees, in volleyball we also have a scorer, assistant scorer and line judges.

  

27 LINE JUDGES

27.1 LOCATION

If only two line judges are used, they stand at the corners of the court closest to the right hand of each referee, diagonally at 1 to 2 m from the corner.

Each one of them controls both the end line and side line on his/her side.

For FIVB, World and Official Competitions, it is compulsory tohave four line judges.

They stand in the free zone at 1 to 3 m from each corner of thecourt, on the imaginary extension of the line that they control.

27.2 RESPONSIBILITIES

27.2.1 The line judges perform their functions by using flags (40 x 40 cm), to signal:

27.2.1.1 the ball ”in” and “out” whenever the ball lands near their line(s);

27.2.1.2 the touches of "out" balls by the team receiving the ball;

27.2.1.3 the ball touching the antenna, the served ball and the third hit of the team crossing the net outside the crossing space, etc.;

27.2.1.4 any player (except the server) stepping outside of his/her court at the moment of the service hit;

27.2.1.5 the foot faults of the server;

27.2.1.6 any contact with the top 80 cm of the antenna on their side of the court by any player during his/her action of playing the ball or interfering with the play;

27.2.1.7 the ball crossing the net outside the crossing space into the opponent's court or touching the antenna on his/her side of the court.

27.2.2 At the 1st referee's request, a line judge must repeat his/her signal.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
