2014 NCAA volleyball rules changes minimal

Rules changes are seemingly a constant thing in volleyball. I wrote in the past about the rules changes the FIVB is looking into for the future. Some are potentially radical – at least relatively speaking.

One of the grumbles many coaches have back in the States is how often there have been adjustments – particularly in the NCAA women’s game (intercollegiate volleyball). The latest meeting seems to have settled on just a few minor ones, as noted in this article. Net touch outside the antennae is the main focal point, in terms of getting it inline with the FIVB rules, though the pursuit rule was discussed as well. Naturally, there’s been discussion on the chat boards.

The interesting thing is that NCAA women’s volleyball has traditionally been quite resistant to following along with how the FIVB does things. Most notably, the NCAA rules allow for 15 substitutions per set with unlimited entries (the NCAA men abide by FIVB rules). One the one hand, this allows for broader participation. On the other, it furthers specialization (back row setters, defensive specialists). I’ll leave you to decide which you think is better for the sport and at what level.
