Rules of the Game of Volleyball

http://www.Volleyball.ORG/


The USA Volleyball and International (FIVB) Rule Books and Casebooks are now available online (pointers below).

 

Everyone who plays the game on a regular basis should have a copy of the Rule Book (and read it!).

 

The definitive reference for rules is the rulebook. 

For rule interpretation (or just to test your knowledge), you should read the casebook. 

 

The rec.sport.volleyball FAQ has interpretations of many of the rules.
