Youth/High School League Rules

General League Rules

  • Any teams waiting to play must stay off courts, unless it is their scheduled court time.

  • All games will be played at scheduled times (Schedule posted on Internet).

  • No Make Ups during the season.

  • Play rain or shine, if weather hampers setup for leagues, then they will be cancelled for that week. 

  • Please DO NOT call directors about the weather, we will probably be at the beach and will not have enough time to call you back before you are to leave.

  • All EARLY games we ask players to SET the court lines, Start under the net and unwind line and you can determine corners with the little Loops - Bungees will hook onto these. 

  • All LATE games we ask players to unhook the court lines, under the net and wrap the lines on the spool and place rope and court corner hold downs into proper bag. Note: DO NOT start winding the ropes at the corner of the court and double the lines up.

Playing Rules

  • Rally Scoring - For leagues we are going 3 games to 25 points, win by 2 (cap at 27).

  • Only Switching after games unless determined prior to the start of the match due to the elements.  Switching at 10s is recommended.

  • Net Serve is Allowed. (Any Serve that hits the net or top of net and rolls over into opponent's  court is good).

  • Ball may be played off any part of the body

  • NO Open hand serve reception

  • Service order, if a team is out of service order, no point or side out is given. The team out of service order will continue with that new service order for the remaining balance of that game.

  • No open hand dink – a player may cobra (contact the ball with fingers closed) or fist the ball over.

  • A ball may be served from anywhere along the back line.

  • A ball is in "legal play" if it hits any part of the boundary lines. (EXCEPT Bungee lines holding the boundaries in place, the the play is considered out of play)

  • There are no antennas out doors, the poles represent the playing area when the ball passes over the net. If the ball passes anywhere over the poles or outside the pole standards then the ball is out of bounds.

  • NO Setting the ball OVER the net whether intentional or unintentional. 

  • All leagues refereeing are on the honor system. Teams playing each other are expected to make their own calls or even calls on the opposing team. You should call the score out loud before each serve.

  • Each week, all teams are responsible for reporting their own game results to the schedulers table.

  • Any team not entering each week’s game results will have the following week to do so. Anything after the following week will go in as a loss regardless of wins or losses. Any none recorded losses will be used for determining playoff seeding.

  • You may e-mail in game results to if you had forgotten to mark your results for that week.

Substitutes and Alternates

  • Many ask how many on a roster:

    • Triples: Some teams can elect to play doubles. This DOES NOT mean that the other team has to play with 2 also.

    • You may have as many on your roster as you'd like however, it is recommended to have a roster size of that of the divsion and have a friend that you can call if someone can't make it. If you'd like more members on your roster, that means less playing time. Also remember, there are only so many prizes available per team if your team gets first or second in playoffs.

  • You can add a alternate any time you wish throughout the summer.

  • An alternate can play for more then one team, however has to choose a team when going to playoffs.  

  • A team may use as many alternates as you wish during the course of the season.

  • Substitutes may only enter during the process of a game at the Serving Position.

  • A sub does not have to go in for the same person, instead, rotate the person in.  ( example, if your playing with 4 in triples, you may rotate a person out so that everyone may play.

  • There is a co-ed division, therefore no boys can sub on the girl's triples teams (7th-12th); 6th and Under is deemed girls, boys or coed.


  • First, try to ask your alternates to take your place that evening if the rest of the team can make it.

  • You MAY play Doubles in the 3s leagues or Triples in Quad, if you are short a Player

  • If a whole team CANNOT make the league night, please contact the league director by text or email as soon as you are aware.

  • Ten minutes after scheduled time, that team forfeits their first game, after 20 minutes the match is forfeited.

  • If a team shows after the 1st 10 minutes (Start the Second Game) and play 2 games.. the 1st Game was Forfeited..  ex:  Record for that day   2 wins -  1 Loss (F)

  • IF Team forfeits, the Winning team must mark on the result sheet for that week 3 wins with the Letter "F" and mark the forfeiting teams losses with the letter "F" next to it.
