TOURNAMENTS OR INVITATIONALS
A maximum of 4 each, each one counts as 3 matches.
All matches shall be best three out of five games using rally scoring (point scored on each serve). Games 1, 2, 3 and 4 shall be played to 25 points with no cap (meaning a team must score a minimum of 25 points and be ahead by at least two points to win a game). If a match goes to 5 games, the fifth game shall be played to 15 points with no cap. A serve hitting the net and going over is allowed with play continuing so long as the contact is entirely within the net antennas. A team is limited to two matches per day during regular season play. Individual tournaments may be modified to play the best two out of three games using rally scoring to 25 points on games 1 and 2 and to 15 points in the third game with no cap. The net serve shall be used in tournaments.
HOME TEAM RESPONSIBILITIES:
It is the responsibility of the home team to provide safe and adequate equipment for the match. If the home school is unable to provide safe equipment, it is their responsibility to secure another site. The school must notify Athletics, Mickey Pitts, and the opponent of the changes within a 24-hour period.
The home team is also responsible for providing an adult to serve as line judges and score keeper for the game. The home team is in charge of the official book for the game.
Every team will get a login to enter their scores on sciaa.org. Scores must be reported after every game.
