MJVBA 10 & Under – USA Volleyball Rules with the following exceptions for 10 & under:

Court size shall be 6m x 6m on each side (instead of 9×9).
Rationale: Players in a smaller space will be more likely to have success moving to, and contacting the ball.
Net Height shall be standard women’s height (7’4 1/4 “).
Rationale: The intent is to have the ball clear the net at a higher point than 7′ (used by the 12&under’s) in order to allow the receiving team to have more time to move and play the ball.
Players on court shall be 4 (instead of 6).
Rationale: Fewer players on the court means that every player needs to contact the ball more often. It also is easier for a club to field a 4 player team rather than a 6 player team.
Ball shall be the Volley-Lite or equivalent.
The Libero rule shall NOT be in effect.
Rationale: Young players need to learn to play all aspects of the game before specializing. A good Libero could dominate the game at this level.
All non-deciding games shall be 18 points (starting at 7-7, ending at 25).
All deciding games shall be 11 points (starting at 4-4, ending at 15).
No player may serve more than 5 points in a row. After the 5th point in a row, there will be an automatic side-out (with NO point awarded) and the opponent will resume serving.
Rationale: It isn’t very much fun for either team to stand around and watch one player dominate the game from the service line.

**All players must have their own AAU membership ($14) and need to register online not included.**
