2012-2013 Rulebook correction:
Tripleball Rules (section c)
To add : Fair Play substitution rule applies: Players not starting in the 1st set must start in the 2nd set. If there is a 3rd set, the coach has the choice of starting any players.
Substitutions are allowed during a match, although Volleyball Canada would like emphasize to all coaches, players and parents that the rule is intended to provide every athlete with the ability to participate equally in every game. It is VC’s hope that coaches only substitute when an injury occurs.
Implementation of rule:
Official or score keeper checks score sheet between sets to confirm players not starting in the 1st set are on the score sheet at the beginning of the 2nd set.
Volleyball Canada's competition now allows jersey numbers from 1 to 24.
4.3.3 Players’ jerseys must be numbered from 1 to 18.
Volleyball Canada - Players' jerseys must be numbered from 1 to 20 1 to 24
For FIVB, World and Official Competitions, players' jerseys must be numbered from 1 to 20.
