NEWS RELEASE

2014-15 Volleyball Rules Changes Include Clarification of School Logo to Solid-Colored Jersey Sleeve


INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 16, 2014)  — The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Volleyball Rules Committee approved four rules changes during its January 6-8 meeting in Indianapolis.

With a mind toward school spirit, the committee approved the addition of a school name or mascot reference to be placed on the sleeve(s) of solid-colored jerseys, providing it appears in either 4-by-4 inch or 3-by-5 inch space. The solid-colored jersey, as specified in Rule 4-2-2 Note, is required in 2016 but is currently recommended.

Another rule change approved by the committee was clarifying the responsibility of the second referee to whistle and signal out of bounds for an antenna fault on his or her side of the net.

The other changes include a whistle by the second referee to end a time-out if the audio signal has not sounded and both teams are ready to play.
