Beach volleyball, or sand volleyball Sport Special Olympic

Rules for Special Olympics VolleyballBeach volleyball, or sand volleyball, is an Olympic team sport played on sand. Like other variations of volleyball, two teams, separated by a high net, try to score points against the other by grounding a ball on the other team’s court. Competitive beach volleyball teams usually consist of two players, though recreational variations can contain up to six players.

Originating in Southern California and Hawaii, beach volleyball now receives worldwide popularity, even in countries without traditional beaches, like Switzerland.

At the international level, the most elite nations in beach volleyball competition are theUnited States, Brazil, and China, who have routinely been the most common podium winners at FIVB beach volleyball events in the 2000s. Along with Australia, these are the only countries who have been medal winners at the Summer Olympic Games.

  • The Special Olympics is a special event for many people. Not only do people with intellectual disabilities get to be a part of sports competitions in which they normally could not participate, but also their families get to see them play and be proud. Both the athletes and the families can be proud of the accomplishments. Volleyball is one of the sports during the Special Olympics.
  • Net, Ball and Court

  • Hang the net at 7 feet, 11-5/8 inches for men and co-ed volleyball teams and at 7 feet, 4-1/8 inches for all women teams. You may use a modified ball, but it should be no larger than 32 inches around and weigh no more than 8 ounces.The court for the Special Olympics should be 59 feet by 29 feet, 6 inches with a minimum of 9 feet, 10 inches on all sides. Make any adjustments necessary to the size of the court, but it should not be smaller than 50 feet by 25 feet.
  • Teams

    Have six players on the court at a time for each team. Coaches need to give a division for each member of their teams as determined by different tests during practice. The practice tests include the serve, forearm pass, spike and bump set. The coach must also mark the six best players on his roster with a star next to each name.

    Play team classification games, which must last at least five minutes or until one team earns 10 points.

    Substitutions

  • Competitions are adapted from FIVB rules for substitutions. Substitution rules allow for unlimited individual entries by a substitute player, though only 12-team substitutions are allowed per set. An unlimited number of players are allowed to substitute into a single position. A player who is in the starting lineup can re-enter the game, but only to the same position he started in. Likewise, a substitute who has left a court may re-enter but must return to the position he previously played. Coaches can assist athletes as they move in position for substitutions.

  • Libero Player

  • Choose a libero player. Each team may have a libero player, which the coach must identify on the roster and also by giving that member of the team a different color shirt to wear. The libero player can take the place of anyone in the back row during the game, but cannot take part in any attack plays, such as spikes on the front line. The libero can change from game to game, but coaches need to notify the game officials.
  • Serving

  • Adjust the serve line if necessary by moving the line closer to the net. However, the serve line cannot be any closer to the net than 14 feet, 9 inches. If the serving team returns the ball successfully they receive a point. If the non-serving team returns the volley successfully, they rotate positions clockwise and it is their turn to serve, but they do not gain a point.In modified team competitions the game officials may set up the thee or five service rule. This means that when any player makes either three or five points on his serve, the service automatically falls to the opposing team
  • General Play

    In general play, the volleyball can be hit with any part of the body. A team cannot play the ball more than three times before sending it over the net. When a ball hits the ceiling, it is considered playable unless the ball crosses the net’s plane. Balls that hit the side or back walls are out. A ball landing on a line is considered good. Any legal hit can be used to return service. The Special Olympics Summer Rules recommend using a forearm pass to return a hard-hit serve.
