                                HANDBOOK INTRODUCTION



This handbook should be your source for answers to most questions about Carolina Region
Volleyball. In it you will find most of our Regional rules, regulations, and requirements. Pay
particular attention to the Operating Code. There are many requirements listed there that each team
must meet to be eligible for competition in the Region. Come to this book first if you have a
question; chances are you'll find the answer here. You will also find a list of the volunteers who
have agreed to serve and have been elected to the Board of Directors. If you still have a question or
a problem, contact the Region Office or please contact the appropriate Board member. We are all
working together to make playing volleyball in North Carolina the best experience possible. With
your cooperation, we can do it.

Another good source for information on the Carolina Region is our site on the Internet. Please add
our site to your Bookmarks section and visit us often for updates - http://www.carolinaregionvb.org/.
 There you will find all our schedules, results, clinic information, directions, tournament
information, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). Our web site has been designed in an effort to
make it more user-friendly and easier to find the information our members look for most.
Remember, the Blue Menu has the main categories most site visitors are looking for – Coaches,
Adults, Juniors, Officials, Board, and Tournament Directors (clicking on each word will take you to
that main section). Once you go to each section, the Red menu down the left side will link to items
of interest to that section only.

This handbook is designed to be a source book on Regional affairs for an extended period. By
necessity, it contains dated material. Each year, supplements will be published on our website to
update any obsolete entries, and additional information may be passed along through emails to Team
Reps and Club Administrators. But the basic meat of the handbook, the Bylaws, the Operating
Code, and the Tournament Guidelines will remain essentially unchanged. Keep this where you can
refer to it often.

         As President of the Carolina Region of the United States Volleyball Association (USVBA - also known as USA
Volleyball), I'd like to take this opportunity to explain just what you can get by joining the Carolina Region. First, you

Volleyball is to promote volleyball. USA Volleyball is the National Governing Body (NGB) for volleyball on all levels,

                  every two seasons.

         4.       A regional team of volunteers who are dedicated to providing the membership with a structured, safe,
                  regulated opportunity to play volleyball against teams and players of their own caliber.

         5.       A tournament schedule of regulated events that will give every member plenty of opportunity to play
                  the sport we all love, insured by up to $2 million of liability insurance.

         6.       A $25,000 supplemental medical insurance policy covering accidents during sanctioned play.

         7.       Trained officials to ensure strict adherence to the rules for equal, fair play.

         8.       A staff of one full-time and four part-time professionals to facilitate the administration of events,
                  provide service to the membership, develop programs, and support and promote the sport of volleyball
                  in North Carolina.

          Please note that most of these services are provided by volunteers, people like you who have seen a need to
provide opportunities for playing volleyball to their fellow North Carolinians and have accepted the responsibility.
Please feel free to join us and contribute your time and energy. You will find a list of these people elsewhere. Don't

2010/2011 Adult Handbook                                                           1-3
                                                                                                  Carolina Regional Volleyball Association

ADULT TEAM REGISTRATION INFORMATION:
1. There IS a Team Registration form this season. This form is required in order to register a team with the Carolina Region. We
request that all individual registrations be handled online this season (but we will accept the paper 2011 membership form for an
additional fee if submitted). Illegible forms will be returned and your registration will be delayed. The forms are self-explanatory. You
won't have any problems if you read this packet carefully and follow the enclosed Checklist. Please contact the Region Office if you have
other questions.

2. Team Reps: ALL teams must have a UNIQUE Team Rep (a person can only be the team rep for one team in our system, but one person
may still handle all your administrative duties within your club if you wish). Remember that coaches and team reps must register as
members of the team, as do any other individuals wishing insurance coverage.

3. No team will be legal until six players have fully registered and been added to the team’s roster. However, individuals that are not
affiliated with a team (officials, coaches, tournament directors, unaffiliated list, etc) may register at any time. To add a player to a team
after a team has been registered, the player may register online and select the club they are affiliating with. Once the Region clears that
member as being paid and submitting a signed waiver (either electronically or by paper), the Club Administrator will be able to add that
member to a team in the club (or the Region can do it if you notify us). Teams should register in the Division where they completed play
last year unless they desire to move up a Division. Successful teams from last year should desire to move up. All team Division
assignments are subject to review by the Competition Committee. To move down a Division, contact the Region Office. New teams may
contact the Region Office for advice on Division selection.

4. Please submit the original required forms in INK (not faxed or copy machine copies). Complete the forms carefully and accurately.
Improper completion or illegible print will result in the form being returned to you for correction and cause a delay in the processing. Many
of the forms on the website may be typed in using Acrobat Reader and then printed to be easily read.

5. Select a team name when registering and use that name when entering and competing in tournaments. Please try to be somewhat original.
Be aware that there may be other teams from your area that may choose the same name if you are not original. Durham I or Raleigh II may
get you registered, but can be easily confused. Seeding and classification, as well as eligibility depend on tournament directors reporting
your team's results accurately. Please limit team names to a maximum of 20 letters. Teams choosing names already selected will have their
registration delayed. For adult teams we will treat every individual team as a unique CLUB in the online system. That way every team rep
can be set up as the Club Administrator and be able to print tournament entry forms/rosters, email members of their teams, and more.
Teams may still choose to show affiliation with other local teams by putting their club abbreviation before their teamname (i.e. WCVC-
Spikers) but we would put their club in the system as SPIKERS (i.e. their teamname). The Region reserves the right to edit and/or reject
any team name. In case of duplicate team names, first priority will be given to the team that has used that given team name in the past and
then based on when registration was received.

7. Correctly prepared application forms, accompanied by the appropriate fees, must be received by the Office at least seven (7) days prior to
the intended date of participation in a sanctioned event by the team or individual player. Special request for registration less than seven days
prior to participation will require payment of a late fee of ten dollars ($10.00) for a team registration and five ($5.00) for each individual.
This late registration must be received by the Office no later than Thursday prior to participation on that upcoming weekend (later
registrations may be accepted for special or extenuating circumstances). NO telephone registrations can be accepted by the Office. Payment
must be received by mail, Paypal, or hand carried to the Office before any registration request can be processed. A faxed signed waiver will
be accepted to initially get a player registered, but the original signed form must follow within 7 days. When using overnight mail
(Federal Express or other), specify that no signature is required or registration may be delayed, and have delivered to 3770
Clemmons Road, Suite C, Clemmons, NC 27012. The US Postal Service does deliver overnight to P.O. Boxes (remember to waive
the signature). The office is closed on Saturdays so express mail should go to the PO Box to ensure delivery.

8. A classification schedule with the appropriate fee indicated is attached for your reference. Submit only ONE check or money order per
team/club, payable to "Carolina Region", in the correct amount to cover all fees including any applicable late fees. No team registration will
be honored until all fees have been received by the Office. Please remit the correct amount. Incorrect payment will result in delay in
processing your registration. Note: Each individual must pay an individual fee, and each team must pay a team fee.

9. A service charge of twenty dollars ($20.00) will be charged for all checks returned for non-payment by the bank. No team or individual is
eligible for competition until all fees and sanctions are paid.

10. All Adult teams must have two certified referees and a (different) scorekeeper on their roster. Certification clinics will be announced.
Teams have until January 1 to complete their officials’ certification requirements. If teams do not meet the minimum officials’ requirement
by January 1, they may play in the January tournaments with a $25 (each) fee. In no case will a team be permitted to participate after
February 1 without the minimum number of certified officials. See page 7, K and the 2011 Operating Code for more information.

ADDITIONAL REGISTRATION INFORMATION:
1. All individuals registering with the Carolina Region are required to complete a current Waiver and Release of Liability form (whether
registering online or with the 2011 membership form). We are encouraging all individuals to register online this season. There will be a
discount available for registering online! To register, have your players go to http://www.CarolinaRegionVB.org/Registration/ Those
players that do not have access to the online registration system or wish to register using the paper form may still do so. The membership
form and Waiver and Release of Liability form is available for download and is on one two-sided form. Both sides must be completed in
INK. The current form has 2011 at the top. This is the only acceptable form (previous year’s forms will not be accepted). Please complete
all requested information and sign in all indicated spaces. All registrations must contain birthdate information. The Carolina Region
has adopted the USAV Participant Code of Conduct. A copy is available on the website and is to be kept by each participant. The
disciplinary policy is listed on the form. No team or individual will be permitted to participate in USAV competition without a signed copy
of these forms on file in the Region office (or electronically in the online registration system). Sorry, but that's the only way to keep our
insurance in force. Both the Adult and Junior registration fees provide each member with liability and secondary health/accident insurance.
 See the Team Handbook online for a description of the coverage. Included for Junior teams is a medical history and release form. Do not
return this form with your registration. Keep a copy of this form with the team at all practices and competitions.

2. NEW TEAMS: The Region has instituted a price discount as a thank you for trying us out. This discount is available to all TEAMS that
recruit participants that have never been a member of the Carolina Region before. Teams will qualify for the discount if they are comprised
of at least 60% NEW members. Call the office if you have questions.
                             EARLY BIRD FEE (NEW Teams only)                      REGULAR FEE (NEW Teams only)
NEW Team fee (Adult only)             $50                                                 $55

3. All individuals wishing to coach Junior Volleyball athletes must sign a Junior Club Personnel Code of Ethics form and pass a
Background Screen every two years. Coaches also must be IMPACT or CAP certified and annually attend a coaching clinic approved by
the Region.

4. High Performance Donation Program: USA Volleyball has instituted a donation program to provide funds for its High Performance
Programs. This is an OPTIONAL donation to benefit and grow the level of volleyball in the U.S. There is a box included on the
registration form and available in the online system that individuals can check to donate $5 to the High Performance programs. $4 will go
to USA Volleyball for their Girl’s & Boy’s High Performance programs and Men’s & Women’s National teams ($1each). $1 will remain in
the Carolina Region to be used to develop our own High Performance programs to benefit our players. If you wish to participate in this
optional donation, please check the appropriate box online or on your form and include an additional $5 on your registration fees. Thank
you for your support. The Region will also accept other larger, tax-deductible donations to support our mission. Please consider showing
your support for North Carolina Volleyball by making a generous donation. Contact the Region Office for more information.

5. Email: The majority of the communication by the Carolina Region is now done by email. All members are encouraged to provide a
current email address. Team and Club Reps are required to provide an email address. All members that provide an email will be
automatically added to our email list to receive updated information during the season. Those members providing email will also be added
to USA Volleyball’s email newsletter, Rotations. Members can choose to opt out of this service online or on their member form and they
may unsubscribe at any time by following the directions at bottom of each email. We will also be providing the Carolina Region’s
newsletter, Carolina Volleyball Review, online only this season to help us keep our costs down and conserve resources. An email will be
sent to members when new issues are posted. Hard copies of the newsletter will be provided to members upon request.

6. Online Registration: USA Volleyball’s online registration system is fully operational this season and this will be the system the Carolina
Region uses from now on to register individuals and teams. Members may now handle all of their registration needs online. Members have
access to their personal accounts to update their personal information, view their team affiliations, and print membership cards. Each Club
(whether one team only or multiple teams) will have someone designated as a Club Administrator on the system and that person will have
the ability to print their teams’ tournament entry forms and rosters, email all the members in their club, and many more capabilities to come
(event registration). Additional details and information are available on our website, www.CarolinaRegionVB.org/Registration/.

SUMMARY:
Send all registration requests to:                                You may have registration questions answered by calling the
        Carolina Region/USAV                                      Region Office at 336.766.3581 between the hours of 7:30 am -.

        Clemmons, North Carolina 27012                            a message. Also, see the FAQ section of the Web page!

NOTE: USAV Numbers will look like this – CR000001FJ11. CR is for Carolina Region. The “000001” is individual’s unique ID in the
online registration system. It will be unique for each member. The “FJ” is your individual gender and member category. Some examples
of individual labels are FR, MR, FJ, or MJ for Male and Female, Regular or Junior (one-events would be EA). The “11” is the membership
year (2011).
                                                     ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
A. Tournament Registration: The Region will use centralized tournament registration again this year. All tournament entry forms must
be submitted to the Region Office. A generic tournament form can be downloaded from the Adult section of website that can be used to
enter tournaments until you are able to print your team’s form from the online system. After you register, your Club Administrator will
be able to download a tournament registration form with your team's information pre-printed on it through our online system.
MAKE SEVERAL COPIES! Use it to enter all tournaments. NOTE: Individuals will not receive USAV membership cards this
season. All members will be able to print a membership card from their online account when their membership is approved. This will need
to be copied and carried to all sanctioned events with photo ID as proof of membership. The Club Administrator will also be able to print
off membership information for their club members. All tournaments (with the exception of the Hi Neighbor and Quest, which have entry
direct to the tournament) will accept entries only through the Region Office. All Regular season one-day adult tournaments will have a
common entry fee, $90, of which $10 will go to pay the Coordination expenses, $10 will pay for the Region officiating clinics and ratings of
officials, and $65-$69 (less sanction fees) will go to the tournament host. Regular season Junior tournament entry fees are $130, with $30
going toward officiating expenses, $5 to provide trainers at all tournaments, $10 administration fee, and $75-$80 going to the tournament
host. The Regional Championships Tournament Entry fees for Adults will be $125 and Juniors will be $150. The additional fee for adults
will be used to provide paid officials at the championships for pool play and playoffs (R1 AND R2 this season with no increase in entry
fees!). The ten day entry deadline before tournaments will be strictly enforced. Late entries may be accepted on a space available basis
with a $25 surcharge (all late fees are now donated to our High Performance Program). Check the schedule (see our web page for most
current schedule), get your entries in early (note that you can enter several tournaments at the same time with one mailing and one check or
enter tournaments online through our online payment page – you do not need to send tournament entry form if you pay online!), and enjoy
the season. Returned checks are subject to a $20 service charge and no team with outstanding sanctions is eligible to play.
B. Adult Regional Championships and Points System: We will again use the same Points System from last year. It will be used to help
divide teams into divisions and seed the teams into the tournaments. This season the Regional Championships (March 5 for all divisions)
will be a regular format tournament open to all teams that qualify (see below). In the event that there are not enough courts available, teams
will be accepted into the Regional Championships based on the Points Standings (higher rankings get priority). However, every effort will
be made to be able to accommodate every team that wants to play that qualifies and enters by the deadline. The Points System is essentially
unchanged from last season. The System is maintained online and this season everyone will be able to go to the page and view the
complete system to see how individual matches affect their team’s points. An explanation of the points system is available on our website
(Points FAQ). Teams must compete in at least three regular season Carolina Region tournaments to be eligible for the Regional
Championships.




2010/2011 Adult Registration Information                                                                                            2-3
                                                                                                 Carolina Regional Volleyball Association

C. Team Division Assignment Policy: The Division Structure for Adults will basically be the same for 2010-2011 as last season. The
Team Rep should indicate on his/her Team Registration form the division that they believe is the team’s best fit at Hi-Neighbor and
Nationals (AA, A, BB, B). Each team rep should also indicate which division it feels is their best fit for in-Region play using the Gold,
Silver, Bronze model from last season. For most tournaments, the Region will place teams in divisions for in-Region play using our Points
System. A team may play in one division one tournament and another division the next. This will allow the points system to work the best
and sort the teams into their natural order. The size, number, and names for the divisions will be determined by the total number of
registered teams and by the competitive balance. Towards the end of the season, a Competition Committee/Region Office will assign teams
a permanent division so they know what division they will be assigned for Regionals. Each team will also be assigned a Hi-
Neighbor/National classification at that time. On rare occasions, a team may disagree with the Competition Committee's assessment of their
level. Matters pertaining to the movement of teams or individual players to a higher classification of competition must be submitted to the
Competition Committee through the Region Office for consideration and appropriate action. Appeal of the Committee's decision may be
made to the full Board of Directors. All Division reassignments will be made only after consultation with the team. Although teams may
be placed in a specific division originally, the Competition Committee may assign teams to different divisions during the Regular season to
help balance the divisions, provide variety in competition, and provide a variety of data for the Points System. A team playing in a new
division from tournament to tournament does not necessarily reflect a permanent division reassignment (those come in writing from
Region). Teams entering Hi Neighbor and the USAV National Championships must play in the Division they are approved for by
the Region. Teams registering (or placed) in the AA Division will be eligible to enter the AA Nationals; teams registering (or placed) in
the A Divisions will be eligible for the A Nationals. Teams placed in the AA division (only) may still petition the Competition Committee
to play A at the Hi-Neighbor and National Championships. AA teams MUST consult the Region Office before entering these two
tournaments to see if your team qualifies or you will have to play in the division you were assigned.

D. Uniform Rule: During the indoor sanctioned season, all teams must abide by the uniform rule that requires team uniforms to be
identical in color and design and conform to USA Volleyball regulations regarding jersey numbers. For the 2010/2011 season, USA
Volleyball rules recommend that the numbers on the front of uniforms to be at least 6 inches in height and at least 8 inches on the back with
a minimum width of 3/4". There are also required placement measurements. Be sure to consult the rule book or web page (FAQ) for
specifics on the uniform requirements (regular players and Libero). It is permissible for shorts to have a minor difference in style and trim.
Teams may petition in writing to the Region to receive waivers on the uniform requirements. Teams may be subject to more stringent
uniform requirements (consult rule book) when playing at the Asheville Hi Neighbor (or other sanctioned inter-Regional tournament), in
other Regions, or at the USAV National Championships. Players are forbidden to wear any article - pins, jewelry, glitter, etc. - which may
cause injury during the play of the game.

E. Player Movement Within Club: For 2010/2011 all Adult teams will be considered as ONE club for this policy! Player movement
(Temporary or Permanent) in a club is restricted to one Divisional level when moving down, that is, Gold to Silver, Silver to Bronze, but not
Gold to Bronze. There is no restriction on moving up, that is, a Player on a Bronze or Silver team may play with any team in their club at
any Division. All such player movement must be recorded by a team rep in writing on the Club Player Movement Form and submitted to all
affected tournament hosts before the start of competition (with roster at Captain’s Meeting). Player Movement Forms do not need to be sent
to the Region before a tournament if the move is only Temporary. Permanent Club Movements should be sent to the Region Office and
REQUIRE the written approval of both affected team reps before it can be approved by the Region.
Player Movement Restrictions:
       Players registered to a club team and participating in sanctioned competition within the jurisdiction of the Carolina Region may
           participate with another team from the same club having a higher classification a maximum of two (2) times before the two
           weeks prior to their division’s Regional Championships. Remember: rosters are frozen 2 weeks before a Division’s Regional
           Championships.
       Players may participate with a team having a lower classification than the one with whom the player is registered a maximum of
           one (1) time before the two weeks prior to their Division’s Regional Championships. Any registered Club player may continue
           participation with another team in the same club (subject to the above restrictions) upon notifying the Office of a permanent
           roster change.
       Players may participate with two teams on a given weekend provided: (a) the divisions are playing on different days (i.e. W
           Silver on Saturday, W Bronze on Sunday); (b) all other Player Movement Requirements described here are followed (limit of 2
           moves per season, Movement Form filled out, etc.); (c) for clubs with combined adult and juniors teams, a junior player MUST
           play with his/her junior team if that team is playing on the same day as an adult tournament. If the adult division is playing on a
           different day, then the junior player may move under the provisions of the Club Movement Policy.
       After a player has participated with another club team in a different division two times, the player shall be frozen to the roster of
           their original team unless a permanent roster move is reported to the Region Office.


2010/2011 Adult Registration Information                                                                                            2-4
                                                                                                 Carolina Regional Volleyball Association

      There is no limit and the same reporting requirements as above on movement of players between teams in the same club in the
       same classification (Silver to Silver, 16 Bronze to 16 Bronze, etc.).
     Players registered as unaffiliated (member of the club but not on a team) must still fill out a Club Movement Form if desiring to
       play on a team within their club and are still limited by the restrictions above.
     Registered unaffiliated members in the Region (not on any team or club) must first join a club and/or team before they can play in
       a tournament (exception is the Unaffiliated Player List – See H below).
Team Movement Restrictions:
    Teams may use at most two (2) Club players in any given tournament.
    Teams may use at most one (1) player from a higher division in any given tournament.
    Teams may use at most two (2) players from a higher division per season.
    Teams are limited to accepting up to two (2) permanent moves per season. If a permanent move is made with the intent to play in
      the Regional Championships, then ideally the player being moved should have played at least once with that team during the
      regular season under a normal player movement. The Region will always hear petitions for extenuating circumstances.

Teams failing to comply with the reporting requirements will have the player movement privilege suspended. Report forms available on the
web page for download.

F. Collegiate Membership Category: A special collegiate membership category is still in effect. The membership fee is $15. This
category is open only to graduating seniors with no collegiate eligibility left who have participated in NCAA or NAIA intercollegiate
competition (as an incentive to continue playing after their college careers are over). A letter from the head coach or a game program is
required for proof of eligibility for this category and should be submitted at time of registration. This category is not for collegiate club
players or individuals that are in college not playing on a varsity team. Individuals who wish to apply for membership under this
category should contact the Region Office BEFORE submitting their online application (as this will NOT be an option online).

G. One-Event Registrations: The Carolina Region also offers a one-event (one-day tournaments only) registration category for new
players that want to experience Carolina Region tournaments to see what it is like or as an option when a team needs to pick up a player in
order to play in a tournament. Players using this category must still complete the online registration or membership form (completed front
& back), check the one-event category box, indicate the event date they are participating in, pay the one-event fee of $5, and submit the
membership form and fee at least one week before the tournament. A one-event can also be added as late as Thursday before the
tournament with the $5 late fee (i.e. same registration requirements as regular members). Players may only play as a one-event registration
twice during the indoor season and then must upgrade to a full registration (at normal fee). An additional form would not need to be
completed when upgrading or using one-event category a second time. The Region will allow a team to be formed in the one-event
category once per season. Each player would pay $5 and the one-event team fee would be $10. The deadline for receipt of registrations
remains the same as above (one week before). If the team wanted to do the one-event category again, no more than three of the original
players can be on the second team’s roster. Players wishing to play in a multi-day tournament (Jr Hi, Hi Neighbor, Quest tournaments) may
register as a multi-day one-event member for $10. The same requirements and deadlines per above apply.

H. Unaffiliated Player List (Adults): Again for 2011 in the Adult Division ONLY, the Carolina Region will allow those players not
affiliated with a registered team to register with the Region and be added to a contact list (name, gender, phone, email, level) which the
Region will publish on its website for use by the Adult Teams. If any adult teams are in need of a player(s) for a specific Regular season
tournament (since rosters frozen two weeks before Regionals the unaffiliated list applies only to regular season tournaments), then they can
contact players on the list to pick them up for the tournament. Teams and Individuals taking advantage of the Unaffiliated Player list are
restricted by the following policies: (1) Teams picking up unaffiliated players must have at least FOUR of their registered players at the
tournament; (2) Teams using the list may pick up a maximum of THREE players for a tournament; (3) Individuals on the list may only play
as an unaffiliated player in THREE events. After the third event played by the unaffiliated player, they will be allowed to join the roster of
any one of the teams they participated with. At that time, that player is governed by the normal Player Movement policy. An individual on
the list may be added to a team permanently at any time up to the two weeks before Regional Championships when rosters are frozen; (4)
All teams utilizing the Unaffiliated list must add the Players names to their roster at the tournament and mark them as from the
UNAFFILIATED LIST. This roster must be turned into the Tournament Director at the tournament who will forward to the Region at the
end of the event. Failure to follow these procedures will cause a team to be ineligible to use the unaffiliated list in future events.

I. Faxed Information/Copies and Credit Cards: USA Volleyball and our insurance company require us to have original signatures on
file for our members (for those using the paper registration form). We will accept faxes to the Region Office, but memberships cannot be
processed until payment is received in the office also. Any faxed or copies of membership forms that are submitted to the Region will
require the original membership form to be submitted to the Region within 1 week (if not received within 1 week, membership privileges
may be suspended). Please submit the original membership forms with original signatures in PEN to avoid registration delays. Members
can avoid having to send in a signed waiver this season by registering online (electronic signatures now accepted!)! The Region has opened
a Paypal account to accept credit cards. If you would like to pay your registration or tournament entries by credit card, go to
http://www.carolinaregionvb.org/Payments/paymentcenter.html and find the appropriate box to submit a PayPal payment to the Region
(there is a box at bottom to enter any amount). You can also go to www.paypal.com, click on the “Send Money” tab at the top, use
office@CarolinaRegionVB.org as the email to send to, and be sure to include in the note the teamname and any other pertinent details
(tournament date, division, names of players/teams registering, etc). NOTE: You DO NOT need to be a member or open an account with
PayPal in order to send money. You can make a one-time credit card payment through PayPal without joining them!

K. Officiating: The following clinic schedule has been established (clinics are financed from team fees and tournament entry fees so the
whole team shares the expense and are free to pre-registered participants, $10 for unregistered participants and will only be admitted on a
space available basis). Capacity at these sites is limited and pre-registration is required for adult clinics. This year, pre-registration will be
cut off one week before the clinic so we know how many to expect and can have enough clinicians and tests available. Pre-registrations
will only be accepted after the deadline if there is still space. The Carolina Region encourages all individuals to pre-register for officiating
clinics ONLINE-see below for information). Individuals may also get directions and information from the Region’s Web Page. Please
distribute this information to your officials.

For Adults officiating for their adult team this season, we will hold two types of clinics: (1) Recertification clinics, and (2) Full/Regular
clinics. Again this year, the recertification clinics will be ONLINE (and the tests are built into the clinics) and are for those referees and
scorekeepers that have been certified for at least the past two seasons and only need a refresher clinic to prepare for the new season. A link
to the online clinics will be available on the Officials section of the website when they are ready. The Full/Regular clinics will be for all
new officials and any other returning officials that would like to attend a full clinic. For Full/Regular clinics, Referees will attend the entire
session (i.e. must be certified scorer also to referee). Scorekeepers only may just attend the scorekeeper portion and then leave. Attendees
at all Full/Regular clinics will have the option to take the appropriate tests at the site. If they make an 80 or higher on the test(s), they will
be eligible to take the online clinics in future seasons.

Adult and Junior Clubs and teams may hire clinicians to come to you at your convenience to satisfy the clinic and test requirements. The
Region highly recommends this for the larger clubs to help ease the burden at the clinic sites. We will post a schedule of Club Clinics at the
web site if we are notified that they will accept non-club teams at their clinic (may charge a fee). See the Host Your Own Clinic form on
our website or call the office for more information!

NOTE: The clinic schedule is still under development while we put this together. Please see the Officials section of our website for
up to date information as it is known and for directions.

      pursuant to the rules established by the USA Volleyball Committee on Player and Team Eligibility. When
      registering each season with the Carolina Region, each team must identify and register a Team Representative

      be received by the Office no later than Thursday prior to competition on that upcoming weekend (late
      registrations may be accepted at other times for extenuating and special circumstances).

                                                                     Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
      D.        Clubs: The Carolina Region’s registration system requires all teams to be a part of a club, even one-
      team clubs. Teams from the same area may also form a multi-team club in the online registration system.
      JUNIORS: All Junior teams in the SAME club, will have Player Movement Privileges within the guidelines of
      the Club Player Movement Policy – see Section IX. F. There will not be a Club Fee. Each team in a club must
      have a unique name to distinguish it from other teams in the club. For administrative purposes, each team must
      include an abbreviated form of the club name in its name and must use that form in all tournament entries and
      Region correspondence. Example: GVC - Pounders, GVC - Hitmen, etc. ADULTS: all teams in the region
      will be considered part of the same club FOR CLUB PLAYER MOVEMENT purposes for in-Region
      tournaments only! Adult teams will be able to borrow players from any other adult team in the Region within
      the guidelines of the Player Movement Policy.

      E.         Team Rosters/Tournament Exceptions: Each team must submit a roster of players upon registering.
       Per USA Volleyball rules, rosters for RVA competition are limited to 15 players and up to 5 others who are
      coaches, chaperones, or medical staff. All persons on the roster should have their proof of USAV membership
      and be able to show proof of identity at all sanctioned events (junior players without photo ID’s may be verified
      by their parent/legal guardian). For multi-team Junior clubs and all Adult teams (per V. D. above), Club Player
      Movement is restricted as described in the Operating Code under Section IX, paragraph F with the following
      exceptions in Adult Competition ONLY: (a) the Region will maintain a list of registered unaffiliated adult
      players that adult teams may borrow as needed for a regular season competition. The unaffiliated player must
      be added to the roster by the Captain at the tournament and reported to the Region with the post-tournament
      reports (see section F below for additional info/policies on the Unaffiliated players list); and (b) an adult team
      that arrives at a competition with only FOUR players (this is only exception – cannot borrow with THREE or
      less) may borrow up to two players from any other team in the tournament to give them six players to start/play
      the tournament. If the team’s fifth/sixth player(s) arrive then the borrowed player(s) may go back to the team
      with which they are registered or stay with their temporary team under the Club Player Movement Policy. The
      borrowed player(s) must be written on the roster and reported to the Region with the post-tournament reports.
      An adult team may only use option (b) ONCE during the season (subsequent instances of only having four/five
      players at the start of the tournament would be handled under normal policy of dropping from the tournament if
      six players not present by the 2nd set of the 1st match). All adult and junior teams’ rosters are frozen two weeks
      before their Division’s Regional Championships. After this date players may play only with the team with
      which they have been frozen (and picking up unaffiliated players or borrowing players will not be allowed so
      those unaffiliated players wishing to play Regionals must be added to a roster permanently prior to 14 days
      before the Regionals). Junior clubs with only one team in their club may not borrow or move players from
      teams from other clubs (within the Region or any other USAV RVA).

      F. Unaffiliated Player List (Adults): In the Adult Division ONLY, the Carolina Region will allow those
      players not affiliated with a registered team to register with the Region and be added to a contact list (name,
      gender, phone, email, level) which the Region will publish on its website for use by the Adult Teams. If any
      adult teams are in need of a player(s) for a specific Regular season tournament (since rosters frozen two weeks
      before Regionals the unaffiliated list applies only to regular season tournaments), then they can contact players
      on the list to pick them up for the tournament. Teams and Individuals taking advantage of the Unaffiliated
      Player list are restricted by the following policies: (1) Teams picking up unaffiliated players must have at least
      FOUR of their registered players at the tournament; (2) Teams using the list may pick up a maximum of
      THREE players for a tournament; (3) Individuals on the list may only play as an unaffiliated player in THREE
      events. After the third event played by the unaffiliated player, they will automatically be added to the roster of
      the THIRD TEAM they participated with. At that time, that player is governed by the normal Player Movement
      policy. An individual on the list may be added to a team permanently at any time up to the two weeks before
      Regional Championships when rosters are frozen; (4) All teams utilizing the Unaffiliated list must WRITE the
      Players names on their roster at the tournament and mark them as from the UNAFFILIATED LIST. This roster
      must be turned into the Tournament Director at the tournament who will forward to the Region at the end of the
      event. Failure to follow these procedures will cause a team to be ineligible to use the unaffiliated list in future
      events.

      sanctioned, all active participants must be a member of the Carolina Region (or other USA Volleyball Region)
      and all adults affiliating with a Junior Club must pass the required Background Screen BEFORE participating in
      any sanctioned event. One-event or multi-day memberships may be offered to participants in order to meet the
      membership requirements (contact Office for more information). To sanction an event (camp, clinic, practice,
      scrimmage, fundraiser, etc), an Application for Event Sanction Form must be completed and submitted to the
      Region office at least one week before the event. All events other than club/team practices/tryouts require a $15
      Sanction fee in order for the event to be sanctioned.

      D.         Divisions: The Carolina Region will offer play in various divisions each season based on demand.
      Examples are: ADULT - Gold (highest skill level), Silver, and Bronze; JUNIOR - Platinum (highest skill level),
      Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, and Nickel. The Adult & Junior Competition Committees reserve the right to add
      or subtract divisions as needed to maintain a sufficient number of teams or competitive balance in their
      respective divisions. With their initial team registration, Adult and Junior teams may select the division they
      will start playing. Division reassignments will be made by the appropriate Competition Committees based on
      the Reassignment policy in Section VIII. M. In addition, the Region will sanction Co-ed (minimum 3 males and
      3 females on roster) and U-Volley (height restricted tournaments) tournaments for those tournament directors
      that wish to hold these special tournaments. Contact the Region Office for additional information if you wish to
      host a Co-ed or U-Volley tournament.

      E.        Uniform Rule: During the indoor sanctioned season, all teams must abide by the uniform rule that
      requires team uniforms to be similar, clean and of the same color and conform to USA Volleyball regulations
      regarding jersey numbers. For the current season, USA Volleyball rules require that the number must be placed
      on the center of the front and back. Each jersey must use the same color and number height for all players
      except the Libero. The number is recommended to be a minimum of 6" in height on the chest and 8" on the
      back, but can be 4” on front and 6” on back for younger junior teams. The stripe forming the numbers shall
      have a minimum width of 2 cm (3/4 "). In addition, for those teams utilizing the Libero rule, the Libero must
      wear a uniform (or jacket/bib for the redesignated Libero) whose jersey contrasts in color with that of the
      predominant colors of the jerseys of the other team members (Color combinations such as purple/black, dark
      green/black, navy/maroon, and white/light yellow are not distinctive enough to comply with the rule). The
      Libero uniform may have a different design, but it must be numbered like the rest of the team members. If a
      jacket or bib is worn by the re-designated Libero (only), the uniform number must be visible. The Libero’s
      uniform number must be recorded on the scoresheet before each set in the special box on the line-up sheet.
      Consult the rule book for the entire uniform rule. For Region play, it is permissible for shorts to have a minor
      difference in style and trim. Teams may petition in writing to the Region to receive waivers on the uniform


Operating Code                                                                                               3-7
                                                                       Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
      requirements (both regular and Libero). Teams may be subject to more stringent uniform requirements (consult
      the rule book) when playing in other Regions, playing at the Adult or Junior Hi Neighbor (inter-Regional
      competitions) or at the USAV National Events. Players are forbidden to wear any article - pins, jewelry, glitter,
      etc. - which may cause injury during the play of the game. The Region will look into purchasing some uniform
      tops and have them available at the Adult tournaments to use with some of the special new member/team
      categories we will be promoting. These one-event teams will not have as strict uniform requirements (shorts) or
      officiating requirements in an effort to promote the sport and grow our adult division.

      F.         Officiating Responsibilities: Since six people are needed to officiate a match, it is a team
      responsibility and it is important that each team have on its roster persons that are qualified officials. Each team
      playing in indoor sanctioned Regional tournaments is required to comply with the officiating rules described in
      Section IX D. of this Operating Code. Failure to comply with these responsibilities will result in the
      assessment of a $50 or higher fine and possible ineligibility for the Regional Championships. Teams that
      deliberately leave a regular season tournament without officiating a scheduled match (pool or playoffs) will be
      subject to a $50 or higher fine. In addition, those teams that deliberately leave without officiating will be
      notified of a Code of Conduct Violation and will be subject to further sanctions which may include suspension
      of playing privileges for the team and individual members. Teams that leave a tournament without fulfilling
      their officiating requirements more than once will be subject to review by the appropriate Eligibility Committee
      for possible sanction/suspension. Teams that leave the Regional Championships without officiating a scheduled
      match (pool or playoffs) will be subject to a $100 fine and no rostered member of the team will be eligible to
      register with the Carolina Region in subsequent seasons until the fine is paid.

      G.         Regional Championships/Points System for the Indoor Season: Teams in each division shall earn
      points while playing in tournaments (Point System). The Adult & Junior Points Standings will only be used for
      seeding purposes and to aid in putting together tournament pools. In the event that there are not enough courts
      for all teams submitting entries, then teams (adult & junior) will be accepted into the Regional Championships
      based on the Points Standings (Priority to the higher ranked teams that enter by the deadline).

      Adult & Juniors one-day tournaments during the regular season will automatically be designated as Points
      tournaments and count towards Regional Championship Qualification. Any Carolina Region sanctioned multi-
      day tournament held before the Regional Championships whose only entry criteria is date of entry may also
      count towards one of the required tournaments to be eligible for the Regional Championships, but their results
      will not be entered in the Points System (due to their inter-Regional makeup and differing formats).

      H.         Tournament Guidelines: All sanctioned regional tournaments must be conducted in accordance
      with USA Volleyball and Carolina Region guidelines and formats. These guidelines and formats appear in the
      Tournament Director’s Handbook and are reproduced in the online Team Handbook (a printed copy is available
      through the Region Office for a printing fee). A Tournament Director’s Handbook is provided to each
      tournament host. Tournament directors and hosts are expected to enforce all USA Volleyball and Carolina
      Region rules.      Where discrepancies are found between Carolina Region and USA Volleyball
      policies/guidelines, then Carolina Region policies found in the Operating Code and Tournament Directors’
      Handbooks will supersede any of those published by USA Volleyball.

      I.           Tournament Entry Priority: The Region's policy regarding how the Region Office assigns which
      teams will be allowed to participate in a tournament is as follows (except the Asheville Hi Neighbor, Junior Hi
      Neighbor, MAPL, Quest tournaments, and any other special two-day sanctioned events which sets and
      administers their own criteria): if a team was closed out of the previous tournament, the team will be
      guaranteed a spot in the next possible tournament on the schedule if its entry to that tournament is complete and
      beats the deadline. The remaining slots will be filled in the order in which the complete and timely entry forms
      of teams within the division are received by the Region Office. Regarding out-of-region teams and Carolina
      Region teams both from the same division and with complete and timely entries, Carolina Region teams will
      always receive priority over out-of-region teams in registering for sanctioned tournaments (except for any
      sanctioned multi-day tournaments that accept their own entries – Hi Neighbor/Quest). Out-of-region teams
      within the same Division whose entries are complete and timely would have priority over any out-of-division
      teams. If there are still slots remaining to be filled after this priority scheme, the order of acceptance of late team
      entries that are valid and include a $25 surcharge is as follows: 1) Carolina Region teams within the division, 2)
      out-of-region teams within the division, and 3) out-of-division teams on a first come, first serve basis.


Operating Code                                                                                                     3-8
                                                                       Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
       J.          Withdrawing from Tournaments: Teams MUST notify the Region Office if they are withdrawing
       from a tournament. Failure to notify the Region Office (or Tournament Director/Contact if withdrawing on
       Friday before a weekend tournament) will result in a $50 or higher fine. JUNIORS - To receive a full
       refund/credit of the Tournament Entry Fee only (late entry fees are non-refundable), you must notify the Office
       and cancel at least two weeks before the tournament date. Withdrawal one to two weeks before the tournament
       date forfeits all entry fees unless the Region can replace the team in the tournament. If a replacement is found,
       50% of the entry fee will be refunded/credited. Withdrawal one week or less before the tournament date will
       result in no refunds as the Region is committed to paying the Tournament host that fee. ADULTS - If you
       withdraw by the tournament entry deadline (10 days in advance), then you will receive a full refund/credit.
       Withdrawals after the tournament entry deadline cannot be refunded as the Region is committed to paying the
       Tournament Director that fee at that time. All refunds are treated as credits that may be used towards future
       tournaments. Tournament entries still must be submitted in writing by the appropriate tournament deadline to
       use credits or a late fee will be charged. Credits left over at the end of the season will be refunded. Forfeited
       entry fees may be appealed in writing to the Board of Directors.

       K.           Intentional Forfeits: A few teams in the past that qualify for playoffs early in Pool Play have
       voluntarily forfeited their last match of pool play to “rest up” for the playoffs. By forfeiting a pool play match,
       these teams are taking a playing opportunity away from another team that has paid their entry fee in the
       expectation of playing volleyball. An important objective for the Region in sponsoring volleyball competition
       is for teams to have fun and enjoy the sport of volleyball. An Intentional forfeit in pool play causes at least one
       team to lose a playing opportunity and thus reduces their enjoyment of the event. For that reason, the Carolina
       Region Board of Directors has decided that intentional forfeits in pool play other than due to injury may be
       treated as a Code of Conduct Violation. Specifically, this is “conduct which is inappropriate as determined by
       comparison to normally accepted behavior”. Teams reported to the Carolina Region as intentionally forfeiting
       pool play matches are subject to penalties ranging from a minimum $50 fines to suspension of memberships.

       L.         Adult All Region Voting: Based on prior seasons’ participation and feedback from the Adult Team
       Reps, the Adult division will not select an All-Region team this season. Juniors - see Section XIII for
       information on All-Tournament teams.


VII.   REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

       A.           Tournament Site/Entry Fee: The location of both the Adult and Junior Regional Championships
       will be selected upon the basis of suitability and availability of appropriate facilities. Bids must be submitted to
       the Region Office no later than February 1. The Entry Fee may be higher than Regular season tournaments and
       will be set once various costs and expenses for the tournaments are established.

       B.         Tournament Director: The Executive Director will appoint a Tournament Director for all Regional
       Championships and, with the assistance of the Board of Directors, shall plan and conduct both Regional
       Championships. Generally speaking, the tournament host that requests to host a Regional Championship will
       be appointed as the Tournament Director for the Regional Championship they are hosting.

       C.         Player and Team Eligibility: A player must participate in at least TWO sanctioned Carolina
       Region tournaments before participating in the Regional Championships. An adult team must participate in at
       least THREE sanctioned Carolina Region tournaments to be eligible to participate in the Regional
       Championships. A Junior team must participate in at least THREE Carolina Region sanctioned tournaments
       before the Regional Championships to be eligible to compete at the Regional Championships. At least one of
       those events must have been a one-day tournament. The other two events may consist of any two of the
       following if held before the Regional Championships: the Quest pre-season tournament, the Junior Hi Neighbor
       tournament, any other two-day Carolina Region sanctioned event whose only entry criteria is date of entry,
       ONE National Qualifier, or other one-day Carolina Region sanctioned events. If a sanctioned Carolina Region
       regular season, one-day tournament is cancelled then the teams entered in that tournament will have their
       requirement to be eligible to participate in the Regional Championships reduced by one. If a team withdraws
       from a tournament due to inclement weather but the tournament is still held, then that team may appeal to the
       Region to have their minimum requirement lowered by one.



Operating Code                                                                                                   3-9
                                                                         Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
VIII.   PROTESTS
        A.          Protests arising in a specific tournament with respect to eligibility, interpretation of playing rules, or
        decisions of the officials must be handled by a Tournament Protest Committee assigned by the Tournament
        Director and must be made in writing in accordance with current USA Volleyball rules. Tournament Directors
        may call the Region Executive Director for clarifications on Regional policies. Any ruling issued by the
        Executive Director shall be final.

        B.          Protests other than those above involving USAV should be directed to the Regional Office.

        C.          A Grievance Committee also exists to redress problems/grievances lodged IN WRITING by a region
        team or player about policies, procedures, violations, and/or competitions in the Region. The committee
        consists of the Men's Player Rep, Women's Player Rep, and the Rep of the division (Adult or Junior) from
        where the complaint is coming. A decision by the committee is final. The aggrieved team/player may appeal
        the decision to the President who then may affirm, modify, or reverse the decision of the committee. A full Due
        Process statement can be found in the Forms section of the Carolina Region website.

IX.     ADMINISTRATIVE RULES

        A.           Annual Registration: All players participating in sanctioned competition within the jurisdiction of
        the Carolina Region must be registered with a team for the current membership season (the Carolina Region’s
        membership year runs from September 1-October 31 of the following year). No team will be registered unless
        the team roster contains the names and required information for at least six (6) players (and an adult coach who
        has passed a background screen for junior teams). Signed (electronically online or mailed “wet” signature)
        waiver and release of liability forms and membership fees must be received by the Region Office a minimum of
        seven (7) days before participation by an individual or team in a tournament. Special request for registration
        less than seven (7) days before participation (Late) in a sanctioned event will require payment of a late fee of
        ten dollars ($10.00) for each team registration and five dollars ($5.00) for each individual being registered. Late
        Registrations must be received by the Office no later than Thursday before competition on that weekend (other
        late registrations may be considered for special or extenuating circumstances). Payment for late fees will be
        made payable to the “Carolina Region” and must be attached to the registration request in addition to normal
        Carolina Region and USA Volleyball registration fees. NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE CURRENT UNTIL
        THE APPROPRIATE SIGNED WAIVERS AND FEES HAVE BEEN RECEIVED BY THE OFFICE OR IN
        THE ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM. In no case will a team be given permission to participate on the
        basis of a telephone registration. Original signatures on the waiver and release are required for our files so any
        faxed forms must have the original submitted to the Region Office within one week. Failure of a team to
        comply with player registration or movement policies will result in a $50 fine. A second occurrence of an
        illegal player or illegal club player movement will result in a $100 fine and the team will be ineligible to
        advance to playoffs in future tournaments. A third occurrence will be handled by the Board on a case by case
        basis.

        B.           One-Event Registrations: The Carolina Region also offers a one-event (one-day tournaments only)
        registration category for new players that want to experience Carolina Region tournaments to see what it is like
        or as an option when a team needs to pick up a player in order to play in a tournament. Players using this
        category must still register using the same procedures as a full member, check the one-event category box,
        indicate the event they are participating in the space provided or online, pay the one-event fee of $5, and submit
        the completed form and fee at least one week before the tournament. A one-event can also be added as late as
        Thursday before the tournament with the $5 late fee (i.e. same registration requirements as regular members).
        Indoor Players may only play as a one-event registration twice during the season and then must upgrade to a full
        registration (at the normal membership fee). The Region will allow a team to be formed in the one-event
        category once per season. Each player would pay $5 and the one-event team fee would be $10. The deadline
        for receipt of registrations remains the same as above (one week before). If the team wanted to do the one-event
        category again, no more than three of the original players can be on the second team’s roster. Players wishing
        to play in a multi-day tournament (Jr Hi Neighbor, Adult Hi Neighbor, or Quest tournaments) may register as a
        multi-day one-event member for $10. The same requirements and deadlines per above apply.




Operating Code                                                                                                      3-10
                                                                      Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
      C.          High Performance Donation Program: USA Volleyball has instituted a donation program to
      provide funds for its High Performance Programs. This is an OPTIONAL donation to benefit and grow the
      level of volleyball in the U.S. There is a box included on the registration form and in the online registration
      system that individuals can check to donate $5 to the High Performance programs. $4 will go to USA
      Volleyball for their Girl’s & Boy’s High Performance programs and Men’s & Women’s National teams
      ($1each). $1 will remain in the Carolina Region to be used to develop our own High Performance programs to
      benefit our players. If you wish to participate in this optional donation, please check the appropriate box on
      your form and include an additional $5 with your registration fees. Thank you for your support.

      D.          Officiating Requirements: Each Adult and Junior team is required to have a minimum of THREE
      certified officials on their roster. The following policies apply for each Division:
           •      ADULT TEAMS - Each adult team is required to have at least two “trained” (attend clinic, pass
                  tests, and modified rating) referees (R1,R2) and one (different) certified scorekeeper to be eligible
                  for competition. The certification process begins with an officiating/scoring clinic. For Adult teams,
                  being in the process of certification (attending an officiating/scoring clinic, taking an
                  officiating/scoring test, being rated) will qualify a team for participation, but the certification
                  process for an adult team must be completed by January 1 of the sanctioned season. After January
                  1st, if a team has not completed their minimum officiating requirements, it will be allowed to
                  participate in a January tournament with a $25 fine (per tournament). No adult team will be allowed
                  to participate after February 1 until the minimum team officiating requirements are met.
           •      JUNIOR TEAMS - For Junior Teams, the team must have at least TWO certified Referees, ONE
                  certified scorekeeper, and one certified Adult (Coach, Chaperone, or Team Rep) on the roster
                  BEFORE the team will be allowed to play in a Sanctioned tournament. NEW for 2011: All first-
                  year coaches must attend an in-person Officials clinic to get certified unless they can confirm prior
                  certification as an official. The certified Adult may not officiate for the team but is to physically
                  supervise (i.e. keep outside distractions like food, phones, MP3 players, parents, and other non-
                  working teammates away from the work team) their team while in the vicinity of the score table at
                  all times during their team’s officiating assignments to assist the paid official. Incomplete work
                  teams (including the rostered/certified coach/adult that is not supervising their team in the vicinity of
                  the score table) may be penalized one point per-minute that they are incomplete to a maximum of 25
                  points off their next match. The paid official shall monitor the work team and assess the penalty
                  points as needed.
      Once officials have completed their certification, only those individuals listed as certified on the roster
      should be refereeing or keeping score for their adult or junior team! Teams discovered in violation of not
      using certified referees, second referees, or scorekeepers at sanctioned adult and junior events will be placed on
      probation for the first offense, be fined $50 for a second offense, and not permitted to participate in sanctioned
      events after the third offense. If an out-of-Region team enters a Carolina Region tournament and does not have
      two certified referees and/or a certified scorekeeper in attendance at the tournament, they will be required to
      hire the required number of officials to meet the minimum at the rate of $15 each for all matches that they are
      scheduled to work as the referee team.

      ANNUAL OFFICIALS TESTING REQUIREMENTS:
        •    The initial certification of all brand new officials shall be at an in-person clinic. They will have to
             take the test onsite or online. Once an official has been certified for two consecutive seasons, they
             will be eligible for the online re-cert clinic the next season.
        •    A Provisional 1 Referee must pass Form A with a score of 70 and correct it to 100.
        •    A Provisional 2 Referee must pass Form A with a score of 75 and correct it to 100.
        •    A Regional 1 Referee must pass Form A with a score of 80 and correct it to 100.
        •    A Regional 2 Referee must pass Form A with a score of 85 and correct it to 100.
        •    A Provisional Scorekeeper must pass Form A with a score of 70 and correct it to 100.
        •    A Regional Scorekeeper must pass Form A with a score of 80 and correct it to 100.
        •    Those Referees wanting to be certified as “Trained” (adult Team Referees) will not need to correct
             their test to 100 if they make a score of 70 on the Form A.
        •    Regional referees/scorekeepers must annually attend a re-certification clinic online or in-person to
             maintain their certification.
        •    Provisional referees/scorekeepers must annually attend a certification clinic (or re-cert clinic if they
             have been certified for the past two seasons) to maintain their certification.

Operating Code                                                                                                   3-11
                                                                      Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
      Each candidate for certification as a Provisional or Regional (1 or 2) Referee must be rated by an approved
      Regional or higher rater and receive a satisfactory rating to be certified. The Carolina Region shall pay a
      designated fee to a Regional Rater for attending a tournament to do ratings. Certification will be valid through
      the sanctioned season. A portion of each tournament entry fee and each team fee is designated to cover the
      costs of the clinics and ratings.

      Officials wishing to be considered for advancement to USA Junior National or National status may obtain a
      copy of the Requirements and an application form by visiting the Officiating Section of the Region’s web site,

      E.         Past Due Fees and Fines: No team or individual will be registered until all fees and fines due the
      Region from current or previous seasons have been received by the Carolina Region. All rostered-members of a
      team that has been sanctioned will be considered to be responsible for the sanctions placed on that team. As a
      matter of policy, all sanction fees and fines received by the Carolina Region will be designated to the High
      Performance Program Budget.

      F.          Player Movement Within Multi-Team Clubs: ADULTS/BOYS - All Adult and Boys teams will
      be able to use this policy to move players during the 2010/2011 season. JUNIOR GIRLS – All multi-team
      Junior Girls Clubs will be able to utilize the Player Movement Policy within their respective club only during
      the 2011 season without paying a club fee.

      Player movement (Temporary or Permanent) for adult teams is restricted to one Divisional level when moving
      down, that is, Gold to Silver, Silver to Bronze, but not Gold to Bronze. For Juniors, movement is allowed for
      Platinum to Gold, Gold to Silver, Silver to Bronze, Bronze to Copper, and Copper to Nickel (if there are more
      than three divisions in each age group), but the age group restriction must still be met. There is no restriction on
      moving up, that is, a Player on a Bronze (or Nickel for juniors) team may play with any team in a club of any
      Division (Juniors must still meet age requirements). All such player movement must be recorded by a club
      officer and submitted to all affected tournament hosts before the start of competition (with roster at
      Captains’/Coaches’ Meeting). Temporary Club Movements do not have to be sent to the Region Office before
      the competition (only permanent moves) – the Region will receive the form after the tournament with the
      rosters.




Operating Code                                                                                                  3-12
                                                                     Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
      Player Movement Restrictions:
         Players registered to a club team and participating in sanctioned competition within the jurisdiction of the
         Carolina Region may participate with another team from the same club having a higher classification a
         maximum of two (2) times before the two weeks prior to their division’s Regional Championships.
         Remember: rosters are frozen 2 weeks before a Division’s Regional Championships.
         Players may participate with a team having a lower classification than the one with who the player is
         registered a maximum of one (1) time before the two weeks prior to their Division’s Regional
         Championships. Any registered Club player may continue participation with another team in the same club
         (subject to the above restrictions) upon notifying the Office of a permanent roster change.
         Players may participate with two teams on a given weekend provided: (a) the divisions are playing on
         different days (i.e. W Silver on Saturday, W Bronze on Sunday); (b) all other Player Movement
         Requirements described here are followed (limit of 2 moves per season, Movement Form filled out, etc.); (c)
         for clubs with combined adult and juniors teams, a junior player MUST play with his/her junior team if that
         team is playing on the same day as an adult tournament. If the adult division is playing on a different day,
         then the junior player may move under the provisions of the Club Movement Policy.
         After a player has participated with another club team in a different division two times, the player shall be
         frozen to the roster of their original team unless a permanent roster move is reported to the Region Office.
         There is no limit and the same reporting requirements as above on movement of players between teams in
         the same club in the same classification (W Silver to W Silver, 16 Bronze to 16 Bronze, etc.).
         Players registered as unaffiliated (member of the club but not on a team) must still fill out a Club Movement
         Form if desiring to play on a team within their club and are still limited by the restrictions above.
         Permanent Moves – Adult teams requesting a permanent move under this policy require the approval of both
         of the team representatives of the affected teams and are still subject to Carolina Region approval.
     Team Movement Restrictions:
         Teams may use at most two (2) Club players in any given tournament.
         Teams may use at most one (1) player from a higher division in any given tournament.
         Teams may use at most two (2) players from a higher division per season.
         Teams are limited to accepting up to two (2) permanent moves per season. If a permanent move is made
         with the intent to play in the Regional Championships, then ideally the player being moved should have
         played at least once with that team during the regular season under a normal player movement. The Region
         will hear petitions for extenuating circumstances.
      Clubs failing to comply with the reporting requirements will have the player movement privilege suspended.
      Report forms are available on the Forms section of the Region web site or by contacting the Region Office.


     G.            Registration of Player Movement Within Club: Requests by a team for the permanent change of
     a player to a different classification (other than required by the provisions of Section F above) must be submitted
     in writing on the Club Player Movement Form so that it is received by the Office no less than seven (7) days
     before the participation of the player(s) in any sanctioned event within the jurisdiction of the Carolina Region.
     Request for change of classification less than seven days in advance must be accompanied by a late fee of five
     dollars ($5.00) per player payable to the Carolina Region.

     H.          Player Movement Before Regionals: No Club movement will be allowed and no new players may
     be registered or added to the roster of any adult or junior team within 14 days of that team’s Regional
     Championships unless required due to verifiable injuries (see paragraph L below).

     I.           Player Movement for Non-Region Tournaments: There is no restriction on the number of times
     players registered to a club may participate with another team from the same club having a higher classification
     than the one to which registered during competition OUTSIDE of the Carolina Region (except for USAV Junior
     Qualifiers which have roster regulations due to it being a Qualifier for the USAV Junior Olympic Volleyball
     Championships).

      J.          One-team Club Roster Changes (Junior Girls only): Players in clubs with only one team will not
      be permitted to participate with other teams/clubs. Requests for movement of a player from one club to another
      club will not be considered by the Eligibility Committee unless the original club is fully disbanded before
      February 1. All roster change requests must be made in writing to the Region Office at least one week before
      they are to become effective. All rosters are frozen two weeks before a Division’s Regional Championships.

Operating Code                                                                                                3-13
                                                                     Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
      K.         Masters Competition: Conglomerate Masters (adult age-group teams) teams preparing for National
      competition may be formed at any time. Masters teams will be permitted to participate in tournaments in both
      pool play and playoffs. The teams must play at least at the "Silver" level (subject to the discretion of the
      Commissioner), and they will be treated like out-of-region teams when it comes to entry priority in tournaments.
       They will not receive participation/playing points. All team members must be Carolina Region and/or USA
      Volleyball members.

      L.           Injuries Requiring Player Movement: In the event that injuries to players within 14 days of a
      team’s Regional Championships would reduce a team to less than eight (8) players on the roster for the
      Regional Championships, players from within a club may be moved to a higher classification if approved by the
      Eligibility Committee. Injuries causing the shortage of players must be verified and reported to the Region
      Office for consideration and necessary action. Players whose injuries create the necessity for movement of a
      player(s) from a higher classification to a lower classification for the Regional Championships shall not be
      eligible to participate in the tournament unless approved by the Eligibility Committee. Junior Girls clubs with
      only one team in the club that have an injury that reduces them to less than eight players may petition the Board
      to add a player to their roster.

      M.          Team Division Assignment Policy: The Region encourages all teams to participate in the Division
      appropriate to their skills. Occasionally, an adjustment in a team's participation level is necessary. All teams
      are subject to review of their Division assignments by a Competition Committee composed of the
      Commissioner, Player Reps, and the team’s Division Rep. The Adult Competition Committee will move adult
      teams among their divisions based on the Points Standings. In the Junior Division, for the first three
      tournaments in the season and depending on the number of divisions in each age group, the Region Office will
      automatically move the top two teams in the Points Standings in Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, and Nickel (if
      needed) to the next highest division and move the bottom two teams in the Points Standings in Platinum, Gold,
      Silver, Bronze, and Copper to the next lowest division (NOTE – for the first tournament of the season, the
      Region may choose to move more than two teams or none at all, in order to balance the number of teams in the
      divisions). Additional moves may be made if results warrant such a move later in the season. Efforts will be
      made to keep the divisions in both Adults and Juniors equal in number of teams as the competitive level allows.
       This effort will be made as early in the season as possible. Matters pertaining to the movement of teams or
      individual players to a higher classification of competition must be submitted to the Competition Committee
      through the Region Office for consideration and appropriate action. Written appeal of the Committee's decision
      for division assignments may be made to the full Board of Directors. No team will be moved without the team
      rep’s agreement to a higher classification of competition with fewer than two scheduled tournaments remaining
      in that higher classification before their Regional Championships.

      N.          Officials Good Standing Policy: In order to be in good standing in the Carolina Region, ALL
      officials (National, Junior National, Regional, Provisional, and Junior) must fulfill the requirements as
      stipulated by USA Volleyball and the applicable Carolina Region Good Standing Policy to maintain their
      certification. The National Good Standing Policy and the Carolina Region Good Standing Policy for Regional
      and below officials is published on the Officials Section of the Region website. The deadline for all National
      and Junior National Officials to take their scorekeeper test will be the same as the national deadline for the
      referee tests.
      O.          Eligibility Violations Procedure: All eligibility matters, including violations of eligibility, will be
      submitted through the Region Office to the Eligibility Committee for investigation and recommendation of
      appropriate disciplinary action. All eligibility matters of any nature, or written requests or suggestions of
      disciplinary actions for teams and/or individuals received by the Commissioner will be referred to the Eligibility
      Committee for consideration and recommendations. Recommendations made by the Committee will be taken as
      final unless evidence can be submitted to verify that the action is either too severe or is unfair. Members are
      subject to penalties ranging from fines to suspension of membership.

      P.          Participant/Spectator Behavior Policy: The Carolina Region has adopted a Participant/Spectator
      Behavior Policy outlining the type of behavior that will not be tolerated at sanctioned events. Tournament
      Directors have the authority to ban participants and spectators from a facility if they violate the good
      sportsmanship principles that the Carolina Region supports. Individuals that are banned from a facility will be
      reported to the Region Office for possible further sanction. A copy of the Participant/Spectator Behavior Policy
      is available on the Carolina Region website.

Operating Code                                                                                                 3-14
                                                                       Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
          Q.         Tournament Admissions Policy: It is the policy of the Carolina Region, that all sanctioned
          tournaments shall provide free admission to all participants and spectators. Tournament Directors may apply
          for a waiver of this policy on their Tournament Sanction Request form. All waivers must be approved by the
          Carolina Region in advance of the event date.

          R.          Alcohol Policy: The sale and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited at all Carolina
          Region events unless specifically permitted by the facility and a Tournament Sanction exception is granted.
          Most facilities used by the Region do not permit the consumption of alcoholic beverages on site. An individual
          in violation of this rule is considered in violation of the Code of Conduct and is subject to a fine and/or
          suspension. See also XIII, M. page 19.

X.        APPEALS

     A.        An individual to whom an amateur certification of membership is refused or who has an amateur
     certification revoked, or who has a membership suspended in whole or part, or a team that has a registration refused
     or suspended in whole or part, may appeal for a review of that action by following the procedure outlined in the
     Carolina Region Due Process policy. A decision made by the Carolina Region may not be appealed to USA
     Volleyball. If contacted, USA Volleyball’s Ethics and Eligibility Committee will only rule on whether Due Process
     was afforded to the complainant.

XI.       NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND ATLANTIC ZONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

     A.      Tournament Site: The location of the National Championships and Atlantic Zonal Championship shall be
     determined by USA Volleyball's Board of Directors and the Atlantic Zone Commissioners respectively on the basis of
     bids submitted. Contact the Region Office for information on these Championships.

     B.                 Regional Qualification: ADULTS - Qualification for play in the Adult USA Volleyball
     Championships and Atlantic Zonal Championships shall be on an open basis for duly registered teams in the
     respective Divisions contested. Should USA Volleyball have to institute a limit to the number of teams coming from
     a Region in a particular division, then the Region’s bid(s) will be awarded to the highest finisher at the Adult
     Regional Championships and then by date of receipt of National entry paperwork and fees. Adult teams can
     download the Entry Booklet from USA Volleyball’s web site - www.usavolleyball.org (usually available in
     December/January). JUNIORS - the Region is eligible to be allocated one bid in each age division to USA
     Volleyball’s Junior National Volleyball Championships (we usually get one bid each in the Club National and
     American Divisions but must wait each year for the allocation formulas to be published by USA Volleyball to
     confirm our actual bids). Junior teams wanting to earn a bid in the Open age divisions must attend a Qualifier
     Tournament. For the 2011 season, the Region will hold a separate National Bid Tournament on either April 16 or 30.
     To be eligible to compete in their age division’s National Bid tournament, a junior team must play in a minimum of
     two sanctioned Carolina Region tournaments in their age group one of which must be a regular season tournament
     (i.e. one-day event on the Carolina Region schedule). The other tournament may be one of the following: the pre-
     season Quest tournament, the Junior Hi Neighbor (if the National Bid tournament is April 30) or another one-day
     regular season event. If a tournament that is eligible to be used as a qualifying tournament for the National Bid
     tournament is cancelled, then the teams entered in that tournament will have their requirement to be eligible to
     participate in the National Bid tournament reduced by one. If a team withdraws from a tournament due to inclement
     weather but the tournament is still held, then that team may appeal to the Region to have their minimum requirement
     lowered by one. There will be no limit to the number of times a team may have their requirement lowered if their
     schedule is affected by cancelled tournaments. All Platinum teams wishing to compete for a bid must submit all
     National entry materials and Entry Fees to the Region Office by the March 28 deadline. An information letter and the
     Entry materials will be sent to all Platinum teams when USA Volleyball announces the entry procedures. The highest
     finishers at the Regional National Bid tournament will receive our Region’s bids (in the National and American
     divisions) in that age group. Should a team withdraw after accepting the Region’s bid and committing to attend,
     all members on the team shall be subject to sanctions from the Region on participating in future National
     events. Teams may also try to qualify for a Bid at a National Qualifier. For the National Qualifying Tournament
     Schedule or further information about the Junior National Championships contact the Region Office or visit the web
     page for a link to the inter-Regional Schedule.

     All Adult & Junior teams planning to attend a National Championship should not plan for any reimbursement from
     the Region on National Entry Fees.

Operating Code                                                                                                 3-15
                                                                        Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
XII.     DUES
   Annual Membership Dues in the Carolina Regional Volleyball Association shall be established yearly by the Board of
   Directors. Individual and Team registration fees will be published on the Carolina Region website and in its annual
   registration materials. As a matter of policy, individual dues for the Board of Directors will be paid by the Region.

XIII.    ADDITIONAL JUNIOR INFORMATION
   A.    Recruiting Issues:
   Guiding Principle:
   Clubs/Teams/Coaches need to understand that they do not own the rights to players. Players (with help from their
   parents/guardians) have the right to choose where they want to get their club volleyball experience. Each
   membership year, each family (which includes the individual player and his/her parents/guardians) has the right to
   choose to play for a different club/team than the year before without repercussions from their previous club. A club is
   defined as one or more teams registering with the Carolina Region and club representatives include but are not limited
   to official club reps, team reps, coaches, assistant coaches, chaperones, parents of players in the club, and players in
   the club (all of which may represent the club to others in some capacity).
   Promoting a Club:
   Clubs have the right to promote their club and tryout information. They may do this in a variety of ways including
   but not limited to newspaper ads, direct mail, flyers, brochures, and websites. Clubs may mail/email general
   information on their tryouts/club to anyone. Clubs may approach players to inquire as to their club affiliation status
   and to promote their own club.
   Recruiting a Player:
   Clubs and individuals are permitted to attempt to recruit a player to play with their club at any time. Once a player has
   committed to a particular club in a specific season, any recruitment can only be for a future season. Players and
   families have the right to inform other clubs that they have signed a Letter of Commitment with a club and request not
   to be contacted in the future. Other clubs must respect and honor this request and may not denigrate other clubs while
   promoting their own club. The Carolina Region expects all coaches and club representatives to honor the Junior Club
   Personnel Code of Ethics and Participant Code of Conduct that they agree to uphold each season which addresses
   appropriate behavior towards athletes and their families.
   The Carolina Region/USAV encourages all clubs to adopt these philosophies/principles as policies within their club
   at a minimum for the benefit of all junior players in our Region.

   B. Tryout Guidelines:
   There will be TWO announced tryout periods that clubs are encouraged to adopt. (1) The first tryout period will begin
   on Saturday October 23, 2010 for the following age groups: 14’s, 13’s, and 12’s. (2) Tryouts for the 15's, 16’s, 17’s,
   and 18’s age groups should be held beginning Sunday, November 7, 2010 (after the North Carolina State
   Championships for public High Schools on November 6, 2010). The Carolina Region/USAV will not publish any
   tryouts for girls’ teams on its website that occur before these dates for the respective age groups. Some middle and
   private school seasons can last longer than the High School season so the Region recommends club directors check
   with Middle and/or private school coaches in their area to determine optimum tryout dates for their various age
   groups.

   Signing Date:
   Players have the right to attend more than one club's tryouts. The Carolina Region recommends that clubs adopt a
   signing date of NINE DAYS after the 12’s-14’s Tryout Period begins and EIGHT DAYS after the 15’s-18’s Tryout
   Period begins(Nov 1 for the 14’s, 13’s, and 12’s age groups; November 15 for the 15’s, 16’s 17’s, and 18’s age
   groups). Clubs should commit to hold an offer open to a player to join a particular team in the club or the club in
   general until the respective age group signing date. If the player commits by the signing date, clubs may be
   considered to have violated the RVA/USAV Code of Conduct if the offer is not honored by the club. Players may
   voluntarily commit to a club at anytime following the club’s tryouts, but should not be pressured to do so. For tryouts
   just before or after the signing date, clubs should give a minimum wait period of seven days before requiring a player
   to commit to their club. The Carolina Region encourages all clubs to use the Letter of Commitment when accepting
   players into their clubs. This form should not be sent to the Carolina Region, but kept on file with the club should an
   issue arise about a player’s commitment to a club.

   The Carolina Region/USAV encourages all clubs to adopt these tryout guidelines at a minimum as policy within their
   club for the benefit of all junior players in our Region.

Operating Code                                                                                                    3-16
                                                                       Carolina Regional Volleyball Association

  C. Junior Division Structure: For the 2011 season, teams may choose the level they feel their team deserves to
  play – Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, or Nickel in each age group (18’s, 17’s, 16’s, 15’s, 14’s, 13’s, 12’s).
  The use of three, four, five, or six divisions in each age group will depend on the number of teams that register in
  each age group. In some age groups ( 13’s or 12’s) there may only be enough teams for three divisions – Platinum,
  Gold, and Silver. In other age groups, four (18’s) five (17’s, 14’s) or even six (16’s, 15’s) divisions may be needed.
  After each of the first three tournaments, the top two teams in the Points Standings in Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper,
  and Nickel (if all divisions are formed) will be moved to the next highest division. The bottom two teams in the
  Points Standings in Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Copper will be moved to the next lowest division. If a team
  is moved to a new division, their initial points value will be adjusted to the starting value of their new division (a
  team’s initial points value will only be adjusted once, even if moved again after another tournament). After the first
  three tournaments, the Region will continue to monitor all results and move teams as needed to achieve competitive
  and administrative balance. Teams may request to play at a higher Age bracket if their competitive level warrants it.
  These requests will only be allowed if there is room in the tournament field and it does not affect the tournament of
  their assigned division. Requests to play in a higher age group should be submitted to the Region Office.


  D. Junior Boys Information: In the interest of promoting and growing boys’ volleyball in North Carolina, all
  registration fees for Boys 18 and younger will be $15. All applicable registration deadlines and late fees still apply
  (See Section IX. A.) If competitive opportunities for the Boys' 12’s & 14's do not meet their needs, they will be
  permitted to enter appropriate level girls' 14’s, 15’s, 16's, 17’s, or 18's tournaments. In such a situation, results
  against boys' teams will count in pool standings, and they will be eligible for playoffs should they qualify. If a boy’s
  team makes the playoffs in a girl’s tournament one week, they will automatically be moved to a higher age and/or
  division with the next tournament they play in. For in-Region play, all boys’ teams will be considered part of the
  same club and permitted to borrow players under the current Club Player Movement Policy (a boy’s unaffiliated
  Player list will also be provided on the Carolina Region website if there is interest). For the Boys’ 13-and-under age
  group, teams will be allowed to form coed rosters in order to encourage participation for boys and girls at this age
  group. The Region will work with these teams to find an appropriate Girl’s division to play in. If enough boys’
  teams are formed, the Region will attempt to sanction separate Boy’s tournaments for the teams.

  E. Junior Team Sportsmanship, Junior All-Tournament Teams, and Officiating Awards: The Junior
  Division will continue to recognize the positive Team aspects of the sport of volleyball by identifying teams with
  Good Sportsmanship and Good Officiating teams. Again for 2011, the Adult Officials will have the opportunity to
  vote/recognize teams at each tournament that exhibit Good Sportsmanship, both on and off the court (honor calls,
  cleaning up their benches and team area, etc). Teams with the most votes will be recognized with a Team
  Sportsmanship Award at the end of the season. There is no longer a limit of one winner per division but teams must
  receive multiple votes in order to be considered and there is no requirement that all divisions have a winner. Teams
  that take their officiating duties seriously and professionally and are recommended by the Adult Officials as deserving
  recognition will be recognized in our summer online newsletter. The Carolina Region will again honor an All-
  Tournament Team at all Regional Championships for all ages and divisions. The All-Tournament Team will consist
  of eight players: three from the tournament champion team; two from the runner-up team; one each from the other
  semi-finalist teams; and a MVP that does not have to come from the Champion team. The coaches of those respective
  teams will choose the All-Tournament Player(s) from their team after their playoff matches (there is no vote involved
  for participating teams). The MVP will be selected by a committee made up of the Tournament Director, the paid
  officials working the championship match, and the Head Coaches from the two finalist teams. The tournament
  director will chair the committee and break any tie. Awards will be given out at the Regional Championships.

  F. High Performance Program: Our High Performance Program’s goal is to attract the top talent in the Region
  and provide them with high level training. Any player in the Region will have opportunity to try out for the High
  Performance program. More information on the 2011 HP program will be posted to our web site as details are
  developed.




Operating Code                                                                                                  3-17
                                                                        Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
  G. Special Rules for Junior Competition: All Junior teams must have two certified referees, one certified
  scorekeeper, and one certified coach or adult on the roster before being allowed to participate in a tournament.
  Coaches are not allowed to officiate Junior play. Players must handle these roles. However, at least one coach or
  adult per team must attend a junior clinic and be on the roster as certified so they know the materials the officials are
  taught and can help their junior officials during the tournaments. NEW for 2011: All first-year coaches must attend
  an in-person Officials clinic to get certified unless they can confirm prior certification as an official. The certified
  coach/adult must physically supervise (i.e. keep outside distractions like food, phones, MP3 players, parents, and
  other non-working teammates away from the work team) their team while in the vicinity of the score table at all times
  during the team’s officiating assignment. Incomplete work teams (including the certified coach/adult that is not
  supervising their team in the vicinity of the score table) may be penalized one point per-minute that they are
  incomplete to a maximum of 25 points in the first set of their next match. All new Junior coaches must attend an
  IMPACT Coaching Clinic or have at least a CAP Level I rating BEFORE they will be allowed to coach at a
  Sanctioned tournament. There is a Continuing Education Requirement for ALL Coaches on Junior teams that are
  already IMPACT/CAP certified to attend an approved Coaching Clinic yearly, either the Region provided gym clinic
  in conjunction with an IMPACT clinic, a USA Volleyball Coaching Accreditation Program (CAP) clinic, or other
  Region-approved clinic. All Junior coaches must be at least 18 years of age and at least two years older than the team
  they coach. All adults affiliating with a Junior Club are required to sign the Junior Club Personnel Code of Ethics
  (electronically or paper) and turn in a Background Screen Form giving permission for the Region to run a Background
  Screen. Failure to sign the Code of Ethics or failure to pass the Background Screen will result in the suspension of
  affiliation with Junior events. Tournament entry registrations are due three weeks before each tournament and must
  be sent to the Region Office (except for the sanctioned special multi-day tournaments like the Jr Hi
  Neighbor/Quest/MAPL that go directly to their attention). Priority in tournament entries will be given to teams based
  on (1) proper timely and complete entry, (2) closed out of previous tournament, and (3) date of entry. An effort will
  be made to provide space in a tournament for all interested teams that enter by the deadline.

  H. Coaches’ Meetings: All teams must have a representative (coach, parent, coach from same club, or player all
  acceptable) at the mandatory Coaches’ Meeting (8:30 am). This is so that the Tournament Director can verify all
  teams are in attendance, go over the pool and playoff formats, and distribute other information that all teams need to
  hear. If a team is not represented and they later show (existing guidelines in the Tournament Director’s Handbook for
  when to drop a team is still in place) without a reasonable excuse, and they have not called indicating they would be
  late, then they may forfeit their first set as penalty for missing the Coaches’ Meeting (Tournament Director’s
  Discretion).

  I.    Serving Rule for 12 and under tournaments: (a) For the first regular season tournament of the sanctioned
  season, all 12’s divisions will establish service lines 6 feet (2 meters) and 3 feet (1 meter) inside of the normal service
  line. Players will be allowed the OPTION to serve from the 6 foot line on their first serve during each term of
  service. If the team wins the point, they must move back to the 3-foot line. If they win that point, they must serve
  from normal service line for the remainder of that term of service. (b) Beginning with the second tournaments of the
  sanctioned season and continuing to the end of the regular season, the 12’s Platinum division will play using the
  normal service line in the USAV Rule book; the 12’s Gold and below divisions will play using the modified service
  lines described above in (a). (c) For all Regional Championship tournaments and National bid tournaments, all 12’s
  divisions will play using the normal service line in the USAV Rule book.

  J.    Guidelines for Junior Tournament Awards: The North Carolina High School Athletic Association
  (NCHSAA) requires that awards earned by high school athletes have a limited value. Acceptable awards include
  medals, trophies, plaques, ribbons, or similar items with no intrinsic value. T-shirts, bags, water bottles, hats, or
  clothing are just some examples of awards that are NOT permitted under NCHSAA rules. If in doubt, contact the
  Region Office or the NCHSAA office (919/962-2345).

  K. Player Movement Before Regionals: No Club Player Movement will be allowed and no new players may be
  registered or added to the roster of any Junior team within 14 days of that team’s Regional Championships unless
  required due to verifiable injuries (see Section IX, paragraph H and L, page 13 and 14).

   L. Out-of-Region teams: All out-of-Region teams MUST play in the Platinum division of the age group of the
   oldest player on their team in all regular Carolina Region sanctioned tournaments (Jr Hi Neighbor, Quest, and other
   multi-day tournaments may have their own team acceptance policies). Teams will be allowed to play in lower
   divisions with confirmation of their team’s level of play from their Region’s Commissioner or Junior Coordinator.

   M.       Alcoholic Beverage Policy: The Carolina Region supports the following Resolution adopted by USA
            Volleyball:

            maintaining the ethical responsibility for standards regarding alcohol consumption.

            AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution be formally stated as USVBA policy for all events
            in this category, and included in its policy statements in the Administrative Manual.

       ATTEST: CAROLINA REGIONAL VOLLEYBALL ASSOCIATION




Restated Bylaws of the Carolina Regional Volleyball Association
Updated 08/23/2008.                                                                                          9
                                                                   Carolina Regional Volleyball Association




             INTRODUCTION TO TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR'S HANDBOOK


The Carolina Region is always looking for safe, well-maintained gyms in which camps,
tournaments, and clinics can be conducted for its members. These sites may be a public or private
school, a YMCA, a Park & Recreation Center, a college, or other location.

The purpose of obtaining these sites is to benefit the members of the Carolina Region in some
manner and to further the purpose for which the Region has been organized, namely, the promotion
of the sport of volleyball in North Carolina.

The Tournament Director assumes responsibility for the conduct of the tournament, enforcement of
the rules of the facility, posting and reporting results, the purchase of awards, and the cost of
conducting the tournament. The Region, through USA Volleyball (USAV), provides liability
insurance coverage for REGISTERED participants, REGISTERED hosts, and the facility. The
Region determines the tournament format, collects tournament entry fees, seeds teams in pools, and
retains a sanction fee for each entered team.

This handbook covers the conduct of the most popular of all sanctioned events, the tournament, and
is part of the sanction contract. These policies help the tournament director organize the tournament
and spell out the Tournament Director’s responsibilities.

The members of the Carolina Region (through its Board of Directors) and USA Volleyball (through
the Regional Commissioner and the printed GUIDE) establish these tournament policies. The
Tournament Director may make application for a waiver of specific rules and/or regulations by
completing the designated portion of the Tournament Sanction Request Form. Complete details of
the requested waiver are to be written on the form prior to issuance of a sanction to conduct the
tournament. In no event is the Tournament Director to deviate from these policies without the
expressed permission from the Board of Director President, the Regional Commissioner, or the
Adult Advisory Board. All participants in a tournament have the right to examine the sanction
document to verify compliance.

This Tournament Director's Handbook supersedes all previously published Tournament Director's
Handbooks in the Carolina Region. In the event there is a conflict between this handbook and a
USAV publication, this handbook is to be followed and the discrepancies forwarded to the Region
Office.

                                TOURNAMENT SANCTION PROCESS

         Tournament scheduling will begin in conjunction with the Carolina Region Board of Directors'
summer Retreat. All requests for tournament dates and divisions (put “any” if willing to host any division on
that date) should be made to the Region Office beginning September 1st. All requests received prior to October
1st will receive first priority (organizations running longstanding tournaments will always receive top priority
regardless of date received IF received at least 8 weeks before their tournament weekend). All sanction request
forms should be received by the Region Office at least eight weeks prior to the scheduled tournament date. In
the case of conflicting sanction requests, the Tournament Directors involved will be contacted and a
compromise will be negotiated if possible. All sanction requests received after October 1st will be processed
on a first-come, first-serve basis to fill available dates and divisions. If a tournament fills well in advance, a
second tournament of the same classification may be sanctioned if a request is received. The Carolina Region
will not sanction any other tournaments for a playing division on the day that division is holding its Regional
Championships.

TOURNAMENT SANCTION REQUEST FORMS:

          Tournament Sanction Request Forms may be obtained by contacting the Region Office or
downloading a copy from the Tournament Director section of our website. A copy of this form is also included
in the back of this manual. This form must be completed and mailed/faxed back to the Region Office at least
eight weeks prior to the tournament date providing complete details regarding facilities, location, format
(including multi-site playoffs) and classification of teams. Approved formats are detailed later in this
handbook. Upon receipt of this form, you will be contacted by the Region Office for evaluation of each
facility (if necessary) as discussed later in this section. Tournament Directors anticipating any deviation from
Tournament Guidelines must also file a request for waiver with the REGION OFFICE.

SANCTION AGREEMENT:

          If a Sanction Request is received at least eight weeks in advance of the tournament date and a sanction
is later granted for that tournament, then the Region will guarantee to the Tournament Director:

         (1) that all efforts will be made to use the Tournament Director’s facilities to their maximum;
         (2) that by the day after the tournament’s entry deadline (ten days before the tournament), the Carolina
         Region will guarantee the number of courts (minimum, may add more with late entries) to be used for
         the tournament, and;
         (3) that the Tournament Director will receive payment for at least four (4) teams per guaranteed court
         (on average for the entire tournament including Saturday-Sunday tournaments).

       No guarantees will be given for sanction requests submitted within eight weeks of the tournament.
The above policy may be amended upon mutual agreement by the Carolina Region and the independent
Tournament Director.

        If on schedule after December 1, but eight weeks in advance of tournament:
                 1. $20 per team administrative fee
                 2. $5.00 per team for officiating clinics and ratings
                 3. $15.00 tournament sanction fee
                 4. $1.00 administrative fee for each team over ten teams.
        If tournament approved 2 to 8 weeks before tournament date:
                 1. $25 per team administrative fee
                 2-4 same as above.
        No tournaments will be sanctioned less than two weeks before date unless requested by Region.
A $100.00 sanction penalty will also be deducted if the tournament reporting requirements are not met.

         Due to unforeseen tournament entry withdrawals, the balance of the entry fees forwarded could be
adjusted as follows: If a team withdraws from the tournament prior to the day of the tournament and the
Carolina Region replaces that team, the Tournament Director will receive the entry for the replacement team
only. If a team withdraws after the Region Office sends the established pools to the Tournament Director,
then the Tournament Director and the Carolina Region will split the team entry fee (less sanction fees). If a
team does not show the day of the tournament, then the Tournament Director is awarded the team entry fee
(less sanction fees).

FACILITY EVALUATION PROCESS:
        To ensure a safe and adequate environment for competition, the Carolina Region will attempt to
evaluate every playing site that may be utilized for all tournaments. A list of all sites must be submitted to the
Region Office at least eight weeks prior to the tournament for evaluation. The condition of equipment, court
clearances, and court obstructions will be evaluated to set ground rules during the visit.
        You will be notified immediately if a site is considered unsuitable. If the size of a tournament is
reduced due to unsuitable sites, then some divisions may be awarded to another city. See the enclosed
Tournament Evaluation Form to review the issues that will be addressed during the evaluation (this form is
for your information only. Do not fill out and return as the evaluation must be performed by a Carolina
Region Board member or staff).
        Before the tournament, it is the Tournament Director’s responsibility to examine the facility
(including floors/tape damage, equipment, hallways, parking lots, etc.) for damage in existence BEFORE a
sanctioned volleyball event. Any prior damage should be brought to the facility owner/director’s attention
and documented in writing to protect the tournament director and the Region from damages claims that were
not associated with the sanctioned volleyball event.

NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE (REJECTION):

         The Tournament Director will be notified of a rejection of the Tournament Sanction Request by mail,
email, or phone as soon as possible. However, Tournament Sanctions cannot be approved or rejected until the
Region gets some idea of the number of teams registering for the current season. All efforts will be made to
notify Tournament Directors of their status by mid-December (however, the final schedule will not be ready
until late January usually). If accepted, the tournament will be included on the tournament schedule and a
Tournament Sanction Agreement will be mailed to the Tournament Director for review to complete the
Sanctioning process. A Tournament Sanction Packet which will include the following will be posted to web
site or emailed from the office at the following timelines (tournament entry deadline is 10 days before
tournament date):

         1.       Current Tournament Schedule (posted on website)
         2.       Entered teams and their current playing classification (posted to Points System at deadline)
         3.       List of teams and/or players who are ineligible to play due to regional sanctions placed upon
                  them (emailed one week before tournament)
         4.       Carolina Region team rosters (emailed 3-5 days before tournament)

All teams may check their status in a particular tournament (Points System) and get directions from our web
site. Please be sure the directions to your facilities on our web site are current and correct. Contact the
Region Office if you do want to mail/email to the teams in your tournament.

The following forms are included with this Handbook for your convenience.

         1.       Official Tournament Entry Form (teams will have their own copies)
         2.       Facility Evaluation Form (for review only – do not fill out or return)
         3.       Score sheets and Lineup Sheet (suitable for copying – please use current season forms.)
         4.       Blank team roster (suitable for copying if needed-pre-printed rosters provided week of event)
         5.       Insurance Forms (have copies available at each site)
         6.       Referee's Rating Sheets (have available at each site)
         7.       Tournament Results Report Form
         8.       Regional Policy Violation Form
         9.       Various Playing Format Guidelines
         10.      Carolina Region Board of Directors List

EXCEPTIONS:

         Once a Tournament Sanction Request Form has been approved and the tournament is placed on the
schedule, no exceptions to format, number of teams per court, or awards offered may be made without the
approval of the Carolina Region. Tournament Sanction Approval Forms should reflect whatever is happening
in the tournament. Changes can be made before the tournament as long as the Carolina Region is advised and
approves. In the interest of competition, the Carolina Region is authorized to waive the sanction and
tournament entry deadlines.

                                                                            Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


WAIVERS:
        Waivers or exceptions to normal Carolina Region Guidelines may be requested by the Tournament
Director at the time of the Tournament Sanction Approval Form or at any point thereafter. Requests for
waivers must be made to the Region Office in writing.
        Some examples of waivers include, but are not limited to, the following:
        1. Deadline for requesting tournament sanctions eight weeks in advance
        2. Amount of entry fees due to special circumstances or expenses
        3. Any variation to standard pool playing format
        4. Double/single elimination playing format
        5. Multi-site playoff format
        6. Starting at another time other than 9:00 am
        7. Non-wood/non-abrasive playing surfaces
        8. Non-standard referee stands, (e.g. chairs, ladders, tables)

                               TOURNAMENT ENTRY CLARIFICATION

         A sanction issued to conduct a tournament is strictly for the division(s) for which it is issued and
covers the conditions outlined in the application and the sanction. Generally, only one tournament of any one
division (ex: "Silver, Women") will be sanctioned for any one weekend in the Region. If more than one
sanctioned tournament is scheduled at different sites for any one weekend, each tournament will be of a
different division. Rarely will two tournaments be scheduled of the same division (could be done if only one
court is available at each of two sites), and only if the first tournament scheduled fills.

ENTRY FEES:

         The Carolina Region limits tournament entry fees to $90.00 excluding the Asheville Hi-Neighbor and
Quest for Excellence tournaments, which set their own entry fee and receives all entries directly. The Regional
Championship Entry fee is set each year by the Adult Division. The 2011 Adult Regional Championship entry
fee will be $125.

ACCEPTING TEAM ENTRIES:

         All tournament entries should be received by the Carolina Region Office at least ten days prior to the
tournament scheduled date (except Asheville Hi Neighbor which sets its own deadline and accepts its own
entries). Entries will be accepted based on date/time received within the guidelines for order of acceptance
detailed below. If a team is closed out of the previous tournament, the team will be guaranteed a spot in the
next possible tournament on the schedule if its next entry is valid and meets the next entry deadline. If there is
an opening, teams may be allowed to enter after the entry deadline with a $25.00 surcharge. If several entries
are received on the same day and cause the team quota established for the tournament to be exceeded, entries
will be accepted by random choice. Rejected tournament entry fees will be applied to the next tournament the
                                                                m
team enters. No entries will be accepted without properly co pleted Carolina Region entry form and fee.

ORDER OF ACCEPTANCE (valid and on time):
     1.   Carolina Region teams bumped from previous tournament in same division
     2.   Carolina Region teams entered within the division
     3.   Out-of-Region teams within the division
     4.   Junior and adult out-of-division teams, as received


Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                               5-5
                                                                             Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


LATE ENTRIES ORDER OF ACCEPTANCE (as received with $25.00 surcharge):

         1.       Carolina Region teams within the division
         2.       Out-of-region teams within the division
         3.       Adult and junior out-of-division teams, first-come basis

REFUNDS:

         The Carolina Region Office must be notified immediately of any teams withdrawing from the
tournament. Teams that have been accepted into a tournament shall receive a full refund if they withdraw by
the tournament entry deadline (ten days before the tournament). The entry fee will not be refunded for
withdrawals within ten days of the tournament playing date, for whatever reason, as the Region is committed
to paying that entry fee to the Tournament at that time. All teams may petition to Board of Directors in
writing for refunds for extenuating circumstances if they choose. Tournament entries rejected because of lack
of space, will have fees applied to the next tournament that team enters by the deadline. Failure to notify either
the Tournament Director or Carolina Region of a withdrawal may result in a $50 or higher sanction for the
offending team.

STATUS OF ENTRY:

         The Tournament Director is no longer responsible for notifying team representatives of their
acceptance into the tournament. Teams may check the Carolina Region Points System after each tournament
entry deadline for their status and after each tournament for the results. Our Points System page
(http://points.carolinaregionvb.org/) will now track all entries into tournaments and pools will be posted the
week of the tournament on the Points System.




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                                5-6
                                                                           Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


TOURNAMENT INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY:
         This policy outlines the rights and responsibilities for the Region, individuals, teams, and Tournament
Directors involved with sanctioned tournaments when weather conditions become a concern. All of the above
listed entities must realize that they bear a monetaryrisk of hosting and/or entering tournamentsduring
the winter months.
         In the event of inclement weather, each individual and team must make the decision whether or not to
attend a tournament. This decision may be made regardless of the decisions of other local teams. Should
inclement weather cause a team to decide not to attend a tournament, the team captain or other team
representative must notify the Tournament Director and the Region Office immediately. Failure to notify may
cause the team to be sanctioned in accordance with the tournament entry/withdrawal policy. If a team has
decided to attend but is concerned of the status of the tournament, a team representative should see the
Region's points system page with that specific tournament's information first, as we will always keep that up to
date. If tournaments are canceled we will also update our phone answering machine so a Rep can call the
Region Office after 5:00 pm for the latest information. However, generally speaking, the Region will make
every effort to hold a tournament. The Region will almost NEVER cancel a tournament based on "predicted"
weather. For bad weather that strikes one to two days before the tournament, the tournament WILL BE
HELD unless teams are otherwise notified (cancelled tournament information will be on the points system and
answering machine [after 5 pm please] and an attempt will be made to notify all teams. Please check these
sources before contacting the Region Office. If you must contact the Office, please have only the club/team rep
contact the office so duplicate inquiries from the same club/team can be avoided). For inclement weather the
day of the tournament, it is unlikely that a tournament director could contact all teams beforehand, so the
tournament will be held for all teams that are able to make it (unless severe weather conditions restrict
tournament director from facilities).
         The Tournament Director is responsible to provide a safe playing environment. If local conditions
warrant canceling the tournament or changing a playing site, the Tournament Director must consult with the
Region Office immediately. The Region reserves the right to cancel a tournament after consultation with the
Tournament Director. The President, Board Rep of the affected division (adult or junior), or Region Staff (in
that order) will be charged with deciding whether to cancel a tournament on behalf of the Region. Once a
decision has been made, the Tournament Director should also call each team representative notifying of the
cancellation or site change. The Tournament Director may also enlist a team representative to help call other
teams from the same area.
         If at all possible, the Region Office will record a message on the Region answering machine about the
tournament cancellation or site change and update the Web page as quickly as possible after consultation with
the Tournament Director (of course, power outages, bad traveling conditions, or current staff travel plans may
affect staff’s opportunities to update the answering machine and/or website). If a team does not attend a
tournament due to inclement weather but notifies either of the Tournament Director or Region Office, the
Region Board of Directors will automatically decide if the team's entry fee will be allocated to another
tournament or if the fee will be forfeited based on each team's unique situation. If the team does not notify the
Tournament Director or Region Office of their withdrawal from the tournament, then they must submit a
written petition to the Board to try to recover their entry fee. If a tournament is canceled by the Region, each
team's entry fee will be allocated to the next tournament the team wishes to enter. Teams still must submit a
tournament entry by the appropriate deadline for the tournament they wish to use their credit. If a tournament
is canceled, the Tournament Director may request reimbursement from the Region for any documented
expenses not to exceed 75% of the amount they would have received. Realizing that the director may have
already received an advance from the Region, a reimbursement to the Region may be necessary from the
director.

                                    TOURNAMENT ADMINISTRATION
SITE MANAGER:

        Tournaments are required to have a non-playing Site Manager whose sole responsibility it is to keep
the tournament on schedule and accurately recorded for each facility. All Tournament Directors and/or Site
Managers must be Carolina Region members (insurance requirement).
COURT MANAGER:

        A playing or non-playing Court Manager is recommended for each court whose sole responsibility is
to keep the court on schedule.

FACILITY ADMISSIONS:

        It is against Carolina Region policy to charge admission to Carolina Region sanctioned tournaments.
Waivers for extenuating circumstances may be requested on the Sanction Agreement but require prior approval
before an admission fee can be charged.

AWARDS:
         The Tournament Director is required to supply awards for the winning participants in their tournament.
The cash value of the awards must be at a minimum 10% of the total entry fees collected. Individual awards
must be given to the 1 st place winners. An award for the second place team is required for multi-court
tournaments and it is recommended that these be individual awards also. Examples of possible awards: t-shirts,
shorts, sweatshirts, plaques, trophies, bags, etc. Cash or money awards are not allowed for sanctioned indoor
events without the prior consent of the Carolina Region. The Carolina Region’s preferred vendor (medals,
trophies, plaques) is Awards North out of Huntersville. For guaranteed low prices, contact them at
704.947.9933 or info@awardsnorth.com Mention to them that you are a Carolina Region Volleyball

           e.       Small pool play schedule taped to each scorekeeping table showing match
                    numbers, teams playing and officiating assignments

EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES:

         The Carolina Region has purchased for the use by its members the following equipment:
                1.      Two (2) pairs of net antennae
                2.      Four (4) flip score boards

        The Tournament Director should submit to the Carolina Region Office all equipment and supply
requests in writing at least two weeks before the tournament. The Tournament Director will be responsible for
pick-up/delivery and all stolen or damaged equipment.
        FLOOR TAPE – Some facilities are having problems with temporary floor tape that is put down for
tournaments. USA Volleyball recommends Tournament Directors use Shurtape floor tape #724 which has a
quick release adhesive designed to minimize, if not eliminate, damage to floors. You can place orders for this
tape by calling Harrison Brothers, Inc at 877-863-6150. If you use any other type of tape, you will be subject
to a $5000 deductible on any claims made for damage caused by other types of tape. Please see the Floor Tape
memo in back of this handbook for more options and information.

RECYCLABLE RECEPTACLES:
         Tournament Directors need to be aware of, and prepared for, the tremendous volume of trash that will
accumulate during a day of play. Everything from drink cans, bottles, and newspapers to discarded ankle tape
will be left strewn about the gyms. Providing receptacles for this trash will greatly aid in your clean-up efforts.
 We urge the Tournament Directors to install well-marked "Glass" and "Aluminum Cans" bins (at the very
least) in each gym. Local recycling centers should be contacted for suitable bins. If given the opportunity,
people are very willing to place their recyclable trash in the appropriate bins.




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                                5-9
                                                                             Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


ROSTER CHECK:
          Once a tournament has been filled, the Carolina Region Office will supply the Tournament Director
with valid rosters to verify that all teams accepted into the tournament have been properly registered. These
rosters should be distributed at the Captain's Meeting, verified and signed by the Captain or Coach, and
displayed at the Tournament Director’s Table or Scorer's Table during the tournament. It is the responsibility
of the Tournament Director (as well as site managers and court managers) to insure that only eligible players
compete. Only those players listed on the rosters received from the office are eligible to play (exceptions are
the Club Movement, Unaffiliated Player List and the late player pickup options described next section). When
there is no official roster form available for a team, court managers should verify eligibility by checking USAV
membership cards (they can print from their online account this season) and photo IDs. In the event of any
further problems involving team rosters or any other eligibility questions, the Executive Director may be
reached on his cell phone that has been provided to the Tournament Director. A message can be left, if no one
answers. Messages will be returned as quickly as possible if staff is available that day.

CLUB MOVEMENT, UNAFFILIATED PLAYER LIST AND BORROWING PLAYERS:
Again for 2011, ALL Adult teams will be considered as part of the SAME CLUB for Player Movement
privileges! So, all adult teams will be able to use the Club Player Movement Form to borrow up to two players
per tournament. The borrowed players MUST be written on their roster and a Club Player Movement Form
must be turned in with the roster (both of these will be mailed to Region Office with your post-tournament
mailing). Also in the Adult Division ONLY, the Carolina Region will allow those players not affiliated with a
registered team to register with the Region and be added to an Unaffiliated Player contact list (name, gender,
phone, email, level) which the Region will publish on its website for use by the Adult Teams. If any adult
teams are in need of a player(s) for a specific Regular season tournament (since rosters frozen two weeks
before Regionals the unaffiliated list applies only to regular season tournaments), then they can contact players
on the list to pick them up for the tournament. Teams and Individuals taking advantage of the Unaffiliated
Player list are restricted by the following policies: (1) Teams picking up unaffiliated players must have at least
FOUR of their registered players at the tournament; (2) Teams using the list may pick up a maximum of
THREE players for a tournament; (3) Individuals on the list may only play as an unaffiliated player in THREE
events. After the third event played by the unaffiliated player, they will get to choose to be put on the roster of
any of the teams they played with before (pending team rep approval). At that time, that player is governed by
the normal Player Movement policy. An individual on the list may be added to a team permanently at any time
up to the two weeks before Regional Championships when rosters are frozen; (4) All teams utilizing the
Unaffiliated list must write the Player(s) names to their roster at the tournament and make a note that they are
from the UNAFFILIATED LIST. This roster must be turned into the Tournament Director at the tournament
who will forward to the Region at the end of the event. Failure to follow these procedures will cause a team to
be ineligible to use the unaffiliated list in future events.
Another policy for adults this season allows a team that arrives at a competition with only FIVE players to
borrow a player from any other team in the tournament to give them six players to start/play the tournament
(all results count). If the team’s sixth player arrives any time during the tournament then the borrowed player
must go back to the team with which they are registered. The borrowed player must be written on the new
roster as “BORROWED” due to five players and reported to the Region with the post-tournament reports. A
team may only use this option ONCE during the season (subsequent instances of only having five players at
the start of the tournament would be handled under normal policy of dropping from the tournament if six
players not present by the 2nd game of the 1st match).




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                                5-10
                                                                            Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


SEEDING AND ARRANGING POOLS:
         Once a tournament has been filled, the Carolina Region will then determine how teams will be divided
between pools and the seeding of teams within those pools. The Points Standings will be used to aid in making
pools. Generally, the seeded teams in pools will be placed in the following pool placements: (1) 4-team pool –
seeded 1 through 4; (2) 5-team pool – 2nd and 4th positions seeded ONLY (i.e. the top two seeds are places in
spots 2 and 4 in the pool-order does not matter); (3) 6-team pool – top two placed in the 3rd and 6th positions;
and (4) 7-team pool – all seeded 1 through 7. The Carolina Region will decide whether teams receive special
consideration in seeding and pool positions to accommodate driving time. The Tournament Director/Site
Manager is required to abide by the pool seeding. Should teams drop out the day of the tournament, the
Tournament Director will need to rearrange the pools keeping in mind the above placements for the remaining
teams.

CAPTAINS' MEETING:

       The Tournament Director must conduct a Captains' Meeting thirty minutes prior to the start of play.
Team Representatives from every team should be present. A Captains' Meeting Checklist is provided with this
manual. During the meeting:
         1.       All teams should update and sign rosters prior to the first match of the day. Players listed on
                  the roster who are not in attendance should be crossed out. New players (that are authorized
                  by Region Office) not listed on the roster should be added, their USAV numbers listed, and
                  their membership verification checked. Uniform numbers for each player listed must be
                  provided by each team representative. Tournament Directors are responsible for verifying
                  the accuracy of rosters.
         2.       Discuss penalties for late arriving teams (see next section)
         3.       Lunch break (if applicable) should be established.
         3.       Rules particular to the host facility such as food, drink, etc. should be discussed. Remind the
                  Captain’s to RESPECT the facility and property (no writing on score tables, don’t ball handle
                  in halls, common areas, etc).
         4.       Recognize available Referee Raters (if present)
         5.       Sanction waivers granted should be discussed.
         6.       Ground rules should be reviewed.
         7.       Inform all Team Reps that intentional forfeits except by injury may be treated as a Code of
                  Conduct violation by the Region and offending teams may be subject to sanction.
         8.       Semi-finals and finals officiating duties should be established. Announce that teams leaving
                  without fulfilling their officiating duties will be fined and may face further sanctions.
         9.       Pool play format, playoff format, and refereeing assignments should be discussed. Inform
                  Captains that you will hold another Captain’s Meeting before the Playoffs so all playoff teams
                  are on the same page with the procedures.
         10.      Designate a protest committee which shall consist of the Tournament Director and two other
                  persons, preferably Regional officers or officials.




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                               5-11
                                                                          Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


STARTING ON TIME:
         All tournaments will begin play at 9:00 am with the Captains' Meeting taking place at 8:30 am. Playing
teams will be allowed ten minutes of warm-up for their first match of the day and five minutes warm-up
thereafter. The ten-minute warm-up for the first match should begin at 8:50 am, so play may begin at 9:00 am.
 Tournaments will conclude at a reasonable hour when excessive delays between matches and/or games are
eliminated. AGAIN FOR 2011 – All teams scheduled to play or officiate the first match of the day must be on
site and complete (i.e. six team members present to play or six team members present to officiate) by 9 am.
Those teams that are still incomplete at 9 am may be penalized one point per minute late up to a maximum
penalty of 25 points.

TOURNAMENT VENDOR POLICY:
         Vendors are strictly prohibited from displaying and/or selling their merchandise at sanctioned
tournaments without the expressed consent of the Carolina Region. Vendors that are not associated with the
facility or tournament host must purchase a Vendor’s license in order to sell food or merchandise at Region
sanctioned events. NEW for 2011 – The vendor fee for tournament hosts has been eliminated! The
Tournament Sanction Agreement will have an area for the Tournament Director to fill out indicating what will
be sold at the tournament (food, drinks, t-shirts, etc.). Vending licenses for outside vendors will be $5 per
court (maximum of $20) per tournament or a season license may be purchased for $100. Direct all vendors to
the Region Office to purchase their license. The regular season license excludes the Regional Championships,
which must be negotiated separately with the Region. Season vendor license holders would still have to
contact and negotiate with individual Tournament Directors for the right to set up at any sanctioned
tournament. The Region should always be notified when vendors are selling at tournaments (even if it’s an
approved vendor).

COURT USAGE:
        Tournament Directors are prohibited from allowing outside groups to use courts/space (even if not in
use by the tournament) in the same gym space as a sanctioned tournament without the expressed written
consent of the Carolina Region. Two or more separate gyms at the same campus/facility would not be
governed by this policy.

REPORTING ACCIDENTS:
         Each Tournament Director should have two types of report forms, a USAV Incident Report form and a
Medical Claim form. Copies are included. It is important that any injuries or accidents that occur during a
sanctioned event or during travel to or from a sanctioned event be documented on the Incident Report form.
The insurance company uses the data collected from forms submitted from across the country to document
what types of injuries and accidents are occurring at tournaments and to set insurance rates for USA
Volleyball. Please fill out the Incident Report form completely and accurately giving as much detail to the
explanation of the incident as possible (i.e. “sprained ankle” doesn’t tell much about how the incident
occurred). The Incident Report form should be filled out by the Tournament Director, Club Director, Coach,
or an attending USA Volleyball representative (Carolina Region Board member or staff). The original form
should immediately be sent directly to the address on the form and a copy should be sent to the Carolina
Region Office. The Medical Claim form should be given to all injured participants to take home with them for
their use should they need to submit a claim (Note: There should be a corresponding Incident Report Form
any time a Medical claim form is given out so the Insurance companies can match them up if a claim occurs).




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                             5-12
                                                                             Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


ALCOHOL POLICY/PARTICIPANT/SPECTATOR BEHAVIOR POLICY:
          The sale and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited at all Carolina Region events unless
specifically permitted by the facility and a Tournament Sanction exception is granted. Most facilities used by
the Region do not permit the consumption of alcoholic beverages on site. An individual in violation of this
rule is considered in violation of the Code of Conduct and is subject to a fine and/or suspension. Tournament
Directors have the right to immediately remove an individual(s) from the tournament for violating this policy
and the incident should be reported in detail on the Region Violation Form.
          Similarly, the Carolina Region has implemented a Participant/Spectator Behavior Policy to be in effect
at all sanctioned events. The full policy is included at the back of this Handbook. Please be sure to review the
policy completely and be prepared to enforce it. All incidents should be reported to the Region Office within
48 hours of the event on the included Report form (please distribute additional report forms to any witnesses
also). Tournament Directors have the responsibility to provide a safe and fun environment for all participants,
so please help us keep our events enjoyable for all.

INTENTIONAL FORFEITS:
         A few teams in the past that qualify for playoffs early in Pool Play have voluntarily forfeited their last
match of pool play to “rest up” for the playoffs. By forfeiting pool play matches, these teams are taking a
playing opportunity away from another team that has paid their entry fee in the expectation of playing
volleyball. An important objective for the Region in sponsoring volleyball competition is for teams to have
fun and enjoy the sport of volleyball. Intentional forfeits in pool play cause at least one team to lose a playing
opportunity and thus reduces their enjoyment of the event. For that reason, the Carolina Region Board of
Directors has decided that intentional forfeits in pool play other than due to injury (in which case they probably
should not be playing in playoffs as they did not have a valid sub) may be treated as a Code of Conduct
Violation. Specifically, this is “conduct which is inappropriate as determined by comparison to normally
accepted behavior”. If this situation arises in your tournament, inform the Captain again (should inform at
Captain’s meeting also) that the Carolina Region may treat intentional forfeits as a Code of Conduct violation
with penalties ranging from $50 fines to suspension of memberships. If the team still elects to forfeit even if
they later make the playoffs, let them play. After the tournament, please fill out a Region Violation Form
completely with all the details and send to the Region Office. The Region will handle it from there. Hopefully
this situation will not arise and everyone will enjoy the sport for the right reasons.

       OFFICIATING ASSIGNMENT AND TOURNAMENT FORMAT CLARIFICATIONS
         A working schedule, including playoff games, should be posted prior to the first match so that teams
will be properly informed as to their respective responsibilities. In addition, teams assigned to work or play the
first scheduled matches should be notified at least three days prior to the tournament (this is handled on our
points system automatically). Teams finishing LAST (NEW for 2011) in pool play competition will be
responsible for officiating the first level of playoff competition. The losing team(s) of the playoff matches will
share responsibility for officiating the next level of competition. Factors that should be considered in deciding
which team officiates would include distance to travel and which semifinal match is completed first. The
Tournament Director will have final authority in this area and should establish this in the Captain's Meeting.
Any teams not fulfilling these assignments will be subject to Regional sanction.




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                                5-13
                                                                           Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


EMERGENCY SITUATIONS:
         Before the day of the tournament,when a teams drops out of the tournament, the Region Office will
1) replace the team dropping out with a team from the waiting list or 2) change to another tournament format if
pools or seeding cannot be redrawn or 3) play three-out-of five game matches in the pool which is short one
team (if that pool contains less than four teams).
         The day of the tournament when a team does not have a representative at the Captains' Meeting and
                                      ,
has not contacted the Tournament Director, pools should be adjusted to meet approved formats in respect to
number of teams per pool, playing format, and seeding. If the team arrives before the start of play for the
second match, pools and formats will be readjusted to accommodate the late team (see page 10 – Starting on
Time for penalty point option for late arriving teams ). Once the second match begins, no further
adjustments will be made. Teams delayed past the start of the second match will not be permitted to play.
Entry fees for teams in these circumstances will not be refunded. Teams delayed by extenuating circumstances
may appeal the forfeiture of fees in writing to the Adult Advisory Board care of the Region Office.
         In the event a team withdraws from a tournament once it has begun, all games won by the team are to
be counted. All remaining games will be forfeited 25-0.

APPROVED PLAYING FORMATS:
        Four-team pools will play three-games to 25 in pool play. Five-, six-, and seven-team pools will play
two-games to 25 in pool play. In the event teams withdraw from the tournament on the day of the tournament
and cause a pool to have three (3) teams, tournament directors should rearrange pools in the following manner
(in order of priority as well):
        1.       If there are TWO or more pools in that division and one of the pools has 5 teams, then move
                 the 5th team into the pool.
        2.       If there are TWO or more pools in that division and the other pools have 3 or 4 teams in them,
                 then combine the two pools into one 6- or 7-team pool (on two courts).
        3.       Play a 3-team pool. Pool play should be 3-out-of-5 games to 25 (5th game to 15) with a break
                 scheduled between each match. The main priority is for the teams to get plenty of playing
                 opportunities and for their enjoyment. An alternate playing arrangement can be made at the
                 Captain’s Meeting if all teams in the pool agree to it.

OFFICIATING POOL PLAY AND PLAYOFFS:

         All teams scheduled to officiate must be ready to do so. Once officials have completed their
certification, only those individuals listed as certified on the roster should be refereeing or keeping score
for their adult team ! Teams discovered in violation of not using certified referees, second referees, or
scorekeepers at sanctioned adult events will be placed on probation for the first offense, be fined $50 for a
second offense, and not permitted to participate in sanctioned events after the third offense. Tournament
Directors/Managers should be active throughout the day of the tournament to ensure that officiating and rating
teams are ready to carry out their responsibilities. Teams which leave after pool play has been completed
without fulfilling their officiating assignments shall be reported to the Region Office by submitting a Regional
Policy Violation Form. These teams will be subject to a $50.00 fine if during a regular season tournament or a
$100 fine if during the Regional Championships. A second occurrence during the season will result in review
of their eligibility by the Adult Advisory Board in addition to the fine. As a general policy, all fines received
by the Carolina Region are appropriated to the High Performance Budget for the promotion of the sport.




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                              5-14
                                                                             Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


DETERMINATION OF PLAYOFF TEAMS:

        In three-, four-, five-, and six-team pools, the top two teams with the best Games won-loss record will
advance to the playoffs. The top SIX teams by Games won-loss record will advance out of a seven-team
pool. Teams shall not be eliminated from playoff competition on the basis of games/points won and lost. If
there are more teams tied for the playoffs than there are positions, the tied teams must compete for the
position(s) in further direct competition. Tournament Directors should seed teams as follows:
1.       If two teams are tied in pool play for first place, they shall not compete in a playoff game to determine
         position; rather, position assignment shall be determined by the following priority system based on
         point differential to the extent possible.
                  1ST PRIORITY/HEAD TO HEAD: Results of the games between the tied teams. First on the
                  set won-lost record and second on the point differential between the two teams (total points
                  won minus total points lost in the games between the two tied teams). If the teams are still tied
                  then go to 2nd Priority;
                  2ND PRIORITY/TOTAL POOL PLAY: Comparison of the point differential based on the
                  total round robin competition. Point differential shall be determined by subtracting the total
                  points lost from the total points won. The highest plus or the lowest minus remainder shall be
                  considered the superior team for tie breaking purposes. If the teams are still tied, then go to
                  3rd Priority;
                  3RD PRIORITY: Flip of a coin.
2.       If two or more teams are tied for the last playoff position, the minimum number of one 25-point rally
sets (no cap, switch at 13) shall be played. For example:

                  a.       Two teams tie for second place in one pool: one 25-point set.
                  b.       If Three teams tie for second place in one pool - superior team which is judged by
                           Head-to-Head or Total-Pool-Play methods described above shall be the bye team and
                           officiate the first game and play the winner of the game between the two remaining
                           teams: two 25-point sets total.
                  c.       If Four teams tie for second place in one pool: Following judgment by Head-to-
                           Head or Total-Pool-Play method described above, team 1 vs. team 4, and team 2 vs.
                           team 3, and winners playoff: three 25-point sets total.
3.       If three teams tie for the two playoff positions, the team with the superior record as determined by
         Head-to-Head or Total-Pool-Play methods described above shall be awarded first place and the other
         two teams will play one 25-point set for the remaining playoff position. If no team has a superior
         record, the flip of the coin shall determine the officiating team and all teams must play for position as
         follows: Team 2 vs. team 3. The winner is awarded one playoff berth. The loser plays team 1 to
         determine the remaining playoff berth: Two 25-point sets total.

4.      If four teams are tied for first place in a pool, two 25-point sets will be played. Teams will be seeded
        according to Head-to-Head and Total-Pool-Play methods with Seed 1 playing Seed 4 and Seed 2
        playing Seed 3. The winners are tied for first place in the pool and advance to the playoffs as
        described above.

5.       NOTE: All tie-breaker sets DO NOT count in the team’s pool play records, so do not include that in
               the records on the Tournament Results Form (you can write those results in separately).




Adult Tournament Directors’ Information-Revised 10/14/2010                                                5-15
                                                                              Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


        After pool positions have been established for playoffs, the Tournament Director will seed the teams as
follows:
        1.      All first place pool teams will be seeded higher than any second place team regardless of pool
                play records.
        2.      The first place pool teams will be seeded first by their pool winning percentage - number of
                wins divided by number of games and second by total pool play point differential. The
                Tournament Director should rearrange, where possible, the second place seeds so teams from
                the same pool will not meet until the championship match.

OFFICIATING THE PLAYOFFS:
         1.       Sets played to decide which team will go the playoffs shall be officiated by the team finishing
                  first in the pool. In the case of three-way ties, the team awarded the bye on the basis outlined
                  above will officiate the first playoff set; the loser of the first playoff set will officiate the
                  second playoff set.
         2.       First round playoff matches will be officiated by the LAST (new for 2011) place finisher in
                  the pool(s). In 3-pool divisions, the two teams with byes will referee the quarter-final
                  matches for the teams they will not meet in the semi-finals.
         3.       If a second round is necessary to obtain a finalist, a first round loser shall officiate the second
                  round considering time and distance factors (discuss at Captain’s meeting or before playoffs).
         4.       The finals shall be officiated by one of the losing teams of the semifinals. Factors that should
                  be considered in deciding which team officiates should include distance to travel and which
                  semifinal match is completed first. The criteria to be used should be announced at the
                  Captains' Meeting. The decision of the Tournament Director on which team is assigned to
                  work the Championship match is Final.

APPROVED PLAYOFF FORMATS:

         1.       For 6 and 8 team playoffs, all playoff matches through the semi-finals will be either 2 out of 3
                  games to 25, or if time is a factor, one game to 25 (rally, switch at 13, no cap). Every match
                  in a specific round of the playoffs must be played with the same format (i.e. one semi- can
                  not play one game to 25 and the other semi- 2-out-of-3). The Finals will be 2-out-of-3 games
                  to 25 (3rd game to 15). This should be outlined at Captain’s Meeting.
         2.       For 2, 3, and 4 team playoffs, all playoff matches will be 2-out-of-3 games to 25 (3rd game to
                  15). Semi-finals may be 1 game to 25 (rally, switch at 13, no cap) if time is a factor. All
                  semi-final matches must be played with the same format (i.e. one semi- can not play one
                  game to 25 and the other 2-out-of-3). The Finals must be 2-out-of-3 games to 25 (3rd game to
                  15).
         3.       Tournament Directors should discuss the Playoff format at the Captain’s Meeting and again
                  before the Playoffs begin. If time will be a factor, the Tournament Director should notify the
                  Captain’s at the morning meeting at what time pool play must be finished in order to have full
                  match quarter-finals and/or semi-finals. All Finals must be 2-out-of-3 games to 25 unless
                  both Captains agree before the Finals to alter the format.

fax (336.766.3501) the Result Form(s) of the tournament to the Carolina Region Office within twenty-four
hours after the tournament has been completed. Complete results are needed – pool play results with set
records for each team (tie-breaking sets are NOT counted in the pool play set record) and playoff results with
scores for all playoff matches!
        The following Tournament Forms and Reports must be sent to the Carolina Region Office within two
weeks after completion of the tournament (post-tournament checks are not sent until items below are received
by the Carolina Region). When sending in your items, keep all LIKE items together (i.e all rosters paper-
clipped together, all scoresheets together, etc. You do not need to group by pool!):

         1.       SCORE SHEETS: All pool play and playoff scoresheets should be included (we do not need
                  lineup sheets or libero tracking forms.
         2.       TOURNAMENT RESULTS: All reports, to include standing of teams in pool play and final
                  standings of playoffs and all team rosters are to be submitted to the Carolina Region Office.
         3.       POINTS SYSTEM: All tournament results which would enable the Region to tally points
                  earned and to maintain current points standings for each division (i.e. show tie-breaking
                  procedures, etc. for first-third place finishes in pool play) shall be forwarded to the Carolina
                  Region Office. Please include the results (scores) of each match during the tournament
                  (pool play and playoffs) on the Tournament Result Form. All results of matches
                  between teams will be needed in order to calculate the Points Standings.

Failure to comply with the reporting schedule as outlined above shall result in              a $100.00 sanction
penalty.

REGIONAL POLICY VIOLATION FORM:
          Should a team violate the policies of the Carolina Region, then the Regional Policy Violation Form
should be submitted to the Region Office within 24 hours of the tournament. Examples of typical Region
violations in regard to tournament play are: use of ineligible player during tournament (not on roster, not
registered with the Region; no club movement form submitted); failure to show on day of tournament and did
not call to withdraw beforehand; failure to fulfill officiating duties; inappropriate behavior as outlined in Code
of Conduct; intentional forfeits. In addition, any violation of the Participant/Spectator Behavior Policy should
be reported on the applicable form to the Region Office within 48 hours.

4-team pools: Teams will play 3 rally games to 25. Playoff matches should be 2-out-of 3 game
matches (time permitting). For the third game during pool play, teams will do a coin toss and switch
sides at 13 (to be consistent with a three game match format). Each unique round of the playoffs
must play by the same format (i.e. both semi-finals must play same format).

5-, 6- and 7-team pools: Teams will play 2 rally games to 25. Playoff matches should be 2-out-of 3
game matches (time permitting). Each unique round of the playoffs must play by the same format
(i.e. both semi-finals must play same format).

6-team pools: A lunch break of 30 minutes to 1 hour is recommended half-way through pool play.
This break should be discussed in the Captains' Meeting at the beginning of the day so all teams can
plan accordingly. Teams will play 2 rally games to 25. Top TWO teams advance to playoffs.

7-team pools: The top SIX finishing teams by match record will advance to the playoffs.
NEW FOR 2010/2011: The Last Place finisher in pool play will stay to work the first round of
playoffs (in needed by the applicable playoff format).

Exceptions to the above schedules and pool formats must be requested to and sanctioned in writing
by the Carolina Region before the event.

                           BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Carolina Region is governed by a group of volunteer Board of Directors dedicated to supporting
and improving the sport of volleyball in North Carolina. These volunteers come from diverse
backgrounds, each interested in different aspects of the sport. Board members are elected directly
out of the Adult and Junior Advisory Boards, the Officials Advisory Board, and the Officers
(President, Treasurer, and Secretary) are elected by the Team Reps. The Carolina Region Board of
Directors is continuously looking to provide more representation to its various members. We invite
anyone interested in serving volleyball at the Board level to contact the President of the Board or
Region Office to volunteer.

The following pages of this section contain the Due Process procedure an individual or team must
follow to file a grievance or appeal with the Board. It also contains a current list of Board of
Directors and several forms that each Board member must fill out. This will give you an idea of the
duties and guidelines expected of the Board.

                              CAROLINA REGION/USAV
        DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS AND DUE PROCESS PROCEDURES

I. INTRODUCTION:
It is the responsibility of the Carolina Regional Volleyball Association Board of Directors to administer volleyball
within the Carolina Region. On occasion, Region members may violate, or be accused of violating, Region policies
as spelled out in the Team Handbooks, USA Volleyball (USAV) policies as described in its Guide Book, or the
USAV Code of Conduct for members or coaches. Such alleged violations may require action by the Carolina
Region. These due process procedures are hereby established to protect the due process rights of any accused
member of the Carolina Region, the safety of Region members, and the integrity of the Carolina Region.

II. VIOLATION OF THE OPERATING CODE (Automatic Sanctions):

Some actions or alleged actions by individuals or teams result in automatic sanctions in accordance with sections of
the Carolina Region Team Handbooks. Failure to have certified officials by specified dates, failure to appear at an
event for which a team is pre-registered, untimely withdrawal from a tournament, and failure to fulfill work
(officiating) obligations are just some examples of violations that have automatic sanctions associated with them.
After considering the evidence of wrongdoing, the appropriate member of the Region Board, the Executive
Director, or the President of the Board of Directors may administer such automatic sanctions. For example, the
Referee Chair may prohibit an individual from officiating if he/she has not qualified as an official or is not in the
process of timely qualifying; or the Men’s or Women’s Player Representatives (in matters concerning Adult
Division play) or the Youth & Juniors Girls or Boys Representatives (in matters concerning Youth & Junior Girls or
Boys Division Play) may impose appropriate automatic sanctions. If there is no clearly appropriate Board Rep, the
President (or his/her appointee) shall administer the automatic sanction. Automatic Sanctions are levied through the
Region Office.

III. VIOLATION OF THE CODE OF CONDUCT/OTHER VIOLATIONS:
The following procedure is to be followed when a complaint is lodged against a Carolina Region member for
violation of the RVA/USAV Code of Conduct, Coaches Code of Ethics, Officials Code of Conduct, or other serious
policy violations not covered by the Team Handbooks.

The Executive Director shall gather all pertinent information on the matter and make a ruling. The ruling may range
from no action, a monetary fine, to suspension of membership. The ruling must be issued within fourteen (14) days
of the receipt of the written complaint. If a sanction is imposed, notice of the sanction must be sent to the
sanctioned member or team (through the team rep) by certified mail (return receipt requested).

In all cases, unless the safety of Region members is at risk, physical or other substantial injury has resulted, or the
accused was clearly caught in the act of a serious wrongdoing relevant to volleyball, no penalty, sanction, or fine
that has been appealed shall be imposed against the accused until a hearing is held by the Carolina Region Ethics
and Eligibility Committee. In the instances cited, however, a temporary sanction may be imposed by the Executive
Director after careful consideration of the evidence and situation; any such action shall be stated in writing and
delivered to the accused.




                                                                                                                     1
IV. APPEAL PROCEDURE:

The first level of appeal for sanctions for violations of the Operating Code (Section I.) shall be to the President and
such request for appeal shall be in writing and received by the Region Office within ten (10) days following receipt
of the notice of sanction. The President may either rule on the appeal or delegate the appeal to the Ethics and
Eligibility Committee (described below) for more formal consideration. If the President rules on the appeal and the
relevant person or team wishes to appeal further, such appeal shall be to the Ethics and Eligibility Committee.

For Code of Conduct Violations (Section II.), the sanctioned member may appeal the ruling to an Ethics and
Eligibility Committee. Such appeal must be made in writing within ten (10) days following receipt of the notice of
sanction. The sanction will be enforced until notice of appeal has been received. When notice of appeal is received,
the sanction is set aside until a hearing is held.

An appeal must be based on one or more of the following criteria:
    A. A dispute of the facts of the event.
    B. Improper application of the due process policy.
    C. A dispute of the severity of the sanction.

The Ethics and Eligibility Committee shall consist of one member from each of the following Groups:
1. The Executive Committee;
2. A Board of Directors member not in Group 1;
3. A Division representative.

The Committee shall be named by a member of Group 1 above who did not make the initial ruling. Factors to be
considered when assembling the Committee are conflict of interest, availability, and appropriateness.

The Ethics and Eligibility Committee shall be formed and the hearing shall be scheduled in consultation with the
sanctioned member and other interested parties. The hearing shall be held no later than at the first regularly
scheduled Board of Directors meeting following receipt of the appeal. In the event of a major code of conduct
violation that may result in suspension of playing/coaching privileges, all efforts will be made to schedule the
hearing before the next competitive event. If all parties agree, the Ethics and Eligibility Committee may convene
the appeal hearing with a conference call of all involved parties. All appeal hearings shall be recorded on audio-
tape and/or video.

In the event the hearing is held before a regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting, the accused may make a
final appeal to the full Board of Directors at the above-mentioned meeting or at the next scheduled meeting.

V. MISCELLANEOUS

The Region Board is not a court of law but, rather, a non-profit, private group of volleyball players, coaches, and
organizers elected by the Region membership to administer volleyball within the Region. It is the duty of the
Region Board to strive to obtain just and fair results when a Region member or team is accused of wrongdoing
relevant to volleyball within the Region. As a private body, the Region Board does not follow the Federal Rules of
Evidence but shall accord weight to evidence based on its substance and on common sense.

Note that the Carolina Region has the authority to suspend Carolina Region membership privileges for more than
one year.

The United States Volleyball Association now provides that the only appeal from a decision of the Region Board
shall be to the United States Volleyball Association National Ethics and Eligibility committee and only for a
determination of whether the accused received Due Process in the Regions.

If an individual moves into the Region or a team attempts to register in the Region and is currently under sanction(s)
by another Region which has afforded the individual or team Due Process, the Carolina Region shall respect and
observe the other Region’s sanction for the balance of its term (regardless of whether the individual or team
exercised such appeal process).

                                                                                                                     2

                 BOARD OF DIRECTORS' MEETING
                     ATTENDANCE POLICY




It is the responsibility and duty of all Carolina Region Board of Director ('Board') members to
attend all scheduled Board meetings and the Annual Retreat. The Board meetings and Retreat are
planned at least one month in advance, which gives all members ample time to schedule around
these dates. If a meeting has to be rescheduled, then consideration will be given to members who
are unable to attend. The Board meetings should always take precedence over other volleyball-
related functions, unless otherwise directed by the President.

If a member cannot attend a Board meeting, then the President or Past-President should be
contacted as soon as possible. It is each Board member's responsibility to send his/her proxy (if a
scheduled voting is to take place) and any information on which the member was scheduled to
report.

Elected Board members are expected to miss no more than two meetings during the calendar year
without sufficient reason approved by the President. It is at the discretion of the President to
decide when an appointed Board member has missed too many meetings that the member can no
longer perform adequately. The President may then remove the appointed member from the
Board. The attendance records of all Board meetings are to be published as part of the minutes of
each meeting and posted to the Region’s web site available to the public.

If at any time a Board member, elected or appointed, feels that he/she can no longer fulfill the
responsibilities, the President is to be notified. Any Board member who is removed or resigns
will be replaced as outlined in the Region Bylaws.

                    Carolina Region of USA Volleyball
                                     Board of Directors
                                      Responsibilities
As a member of the Carolina Regional Volleyball Association Board of Directors, I
understand that my responsibilities include the following:
I am fiscally responsible, with the other Board members for this organization. It is my
    responsibility to know what our budget is, and to be active in planning that budget and
    planning the fundraising to meet that budget.
I am morally responsible, along with the other Board members, for this organization. I am
     responsible to know and approve all policies and programs and to oversee their
     implementation. I am responsible for the health and well-being of this organization. As a
     member of the Board, I have pledged myself to advance the purposes of the Carolina
     Region of USA Volleyball.

I will make every effort to attend ail Board meetings each year, as well as meetings of each
      Board Committee on which I agree to sit, and be generally available for telephone
      consultation. I understand that commitment to this Board may involve a good deal of
      time, probably not less than two hours each month.
I understand that no quotas have been set, that no rigid standards of measurement and
     achievement have been formed. Every Board member is making a statement of faith.
     We are trusting each other to carry out the above agreements to the best of our ability,
     each in our own way, with knowledge, approval and support of all. I know that if I fail to
     act in good faith, I should reconsider my ability to serve as a member of the Board, or
     someone from the Board may ask me to resign.

In its turn, the Carolina Region of USA Volleyball is responsible to me in a number of
ways:

I will be sent, without request, reports and monthly financial reports, which will allow me to
       stay current with the activities and meet the prudent person section of the laws.

I can call on the President, Chairpersons of the various divisions and committees of the
     Board, to discuss overall programs and policies...and similarly, I can also call upon the
     staff...to answer questions or concerns I might have with regard to my committee
     responsibilities.

Board members and staff will respond in a straight-forward and thorough fashion to any
    questions I have which I feel are necessary to carry out my fiscal, legal or moral
    responsibilities.
              ETHICAL BEHAVIOR AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST
                 CAROLINA REGION BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Those who choose to serve the Carolina Region (later referred to as “Region”) of USA Volleyball (USAV) as volunteers are held to
a high standard of conduct. As the Region is the local governing body for volleyball in conjunction with USAV and the United
States Olympic Committee, its volunteers must assume an obligation to subordinate individual interest to the interests of promotion
and development of volleyball. What may be considered acceptable conduct in some businesses may be inappropriate in the service
of volleyball.

Those who serve the Region must do so without expectation of personal gain, to avoid any institutional loss or embarrassment and to
behave in such a way that the organization’s trust and public confidence are enhanced. It is important to avoid any real conflict of
interest as well as to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest.

While no set guidelines can guarantee acceptable behavior, the principles which guide behavior in this area are early disclosure,
physical absence and non-participation in the decision-making process where personal or family gain is a possibility, and a
commitment to honor the confidentiality of organizational information. All conduct is founded on the individual’s own sense of
integrity. Any individual accepting the honor of serving the Region must also accept the burdens of public disclosure and public
scrutiny.

In our complex society, the intermix of volunteer work, business interests, governmental activity and family relationships often
create potentially conflicting interests. What is required is disclosure of conflicting interests when they arise as well as physical
absence from and strict non-participation in any evaluation process relating to the matter in question.

Occasionally last minute decisions must be made by Region volunteers that preclude the concepts of early disclosure and absence
from the decision process. In these situations, the Region’s needs must clearly outweigh any potential gain by the volunteer, and the
volunteer must promptly report the situation to the President or Past-President.

Integral to this policy is enforcement. It is suggested that any violation of this policy may be penalized at the discretion of the
Region Board of Directors.

The following guidelines are not a precise road map to acceptable conduct--they are signposts. Each individual must find his or her
own way:

         1.       The business of the Region is to be conducted in observance of both the spirit and letter of applicable federal,
                  state, and local laws.
         2.       Region properties, services, opportunities, authority, and influence are not to be used for private benefit.
         3.       All individuals who participate with the Region will disclose the nature and extent of an actual or potential
                  conflict of interest when it occurs in the evaluation of an issue and will avoid evaluating or voting on the matter
                  involved by being physically absent during the evaluation and vote. This includes the awarding of contracts, the
                  purchase of goods and services, and the allocation of Region resources for personal use.
         4.       Gifts, cash, travel, hotel accommodations, entertainment, or favors are neither to be given nor received except
                  those of nominal value exchanged in the normal course of business. For example, the trading of pins and
                  mementos is acceptable conduct. Sports, media, entertainment, and other organizations may invite Regional
                  personnel to attend sports and social events of more than nominal value. Such invitations may be accepted if they
                  are part of open and generally accepted practices, serve to promote the best interests of the Region, would not
                  embarrass the individual or the Region if publicly disclosed, and do not compromise the objectivity and integrity
                  of the recipient or donor. Gifts and favors of more than fifty dollars ($50) value should not ordinarily be
                  accepted. If circumstances render it awkward to refuse such a gift, the donor should be thanked and told that the
                  gift is being accepted in behalf of and will be delivered to the Region.
         5.       All are expected to exhibit honesty, loyalty, candor, and professional competence in their relationships with the
                  Region and each other.
         6.       Each individual has the responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the organization. This includes both
                  proprietary and sensitive information.

                              INSURANCE INFORMATION

USA Volleyball’s Insurance Coverage:

Members of the Carolina Region are covered for sanctioned events under USA Volleyball’s
Insurance policy brokered by Entertainment and Sports Insurance Experts (ESIX).
There are two main components of the Insurance Coverage:
(1) Comprehensive General Liability Insurance with a $2,000,000 limit. Our insurance coverage
will pay on behalf of USAV and other named Insureds all sums which the Insureds shall become
“legally” obligated to pay as damages because of bodily injury or property damage to which the
insurance applies during the policy period. This policy is an “occurrence” policy. This coverage
would apply to facility owners that operate sanctioned tournaments in the Carolina Region.
Tournament Directors may request a Certificate of Insurance naming their facility as a Certificate
Holder. Details are included in the Tournament Director’s Handbook. A Certificate of Insurance
Request Form can be downloaded from the Region’s Forms section –
www.CarolinaRegionVB.org/Forms/
(2) Sports Accident Excess Medical coverage. This coverage provides USAV members with
$25,000 of excess medical protection from injuries sustained during an approved or sanctioned
practice or event when no other Primary Medical Insurance is available to the injured party. When
other Primary Medical Insurance is available, the Sports Accident Coverage is excess over any
medical payments paid by the primary insurance, subject to the $25,000 limit. Medical claims not
paid by the Primary Insurance may be submitted to ESIX for payment subject to a $250 deductible.
When no other Primary Insurance is available, the deductible for a Sports Accident Coverage claim
is $1,000 per claim.
A “sanctioned” or “approved” event is defined as any event in which the Carolina Region (through
its Board of Directors or Regional Commissioner) or USAV has granted prior approval of being a
sanctioned event. Examples of some sanctioned events are tournaments, practices, clinics, or other
pre- or post-event functions. Included in this Handbook are forms to be used to get tournaments or
practices sanctioned. Any other events you want approved, please contact the Region Office.

Incident Reports:
It is important that any injuries or accidents that occur during a sanctioned event or during travel to
or from a sanctioned event be documented on the Incident Report form (included in this section).
The insurance company uses the data collected from forms submitted from across the country to
document what types of injuries and accidents are occurring at tournaments and to set insurance
rates for USA Volleyball. Please fill out the form completely and accurately giving as much detail
to the explanation of the incident as possible (i.e. “sprained ankle” doesn’t tell much about how the
incident occurred). The form should be filled out by the Tournament Director, Club Director,
Coach, or an attending USA Volleyball representative (Carolina Region Board member or staff).
The original form should be sent within 60 days directly to the address on the form and a copy
should be sent to the Carolina Region Office.

Insurance Information                                                                          7-1
                                                            Carolina Regional Volleyball Association


Transportation Issues:

Tournament Directors, Team Reps, Coaches, and Parents (who have joined the Carolina Region as a
Chaperone for Insurance purposes) should note that if you are transporting players, tournament
supplies, etc. to a sanctioned event in your privately owned vehicle, the General Liability that covers
you is your own policy - not USA Volleyball’s. However, all USAV members injured would be
eligible for the Excess Sport Accident Coverage as described above.

Additional Insurance Available:

ESIX (and other Insurance companies) offer additional policies that may be useful to individuals,
teams, or clubs. ESIX offers additional coverage to officials that may referee non-sanctioned events.
 Contact the Region Office to sign up for this additional coverage ($6.85).

As the USAV policy only provides general liability protection for the Carolina Regional Volleyball
Association, its officers, Board of Directors, employees, sponsors, volunteers, registered members
and any other persons working for or on behalf of USAV in an approved or sanctioned event, Clubs
and teams may want to investigate the need for additional insurance. Since each Club/Team is a
separate association (business), they may have activities that fall outside the scope of sanctioned
volleyball events. If a club or team conducts any of the following activities, separate insurance
would be required (if coverage is desired):

<      Rent or lease office space (Property or General Liability)
<      Own or rent office equipment or volleyball equipment (Property Insurance)

A REVIEW OF GENERAL LIABILITY COVERAGE
Commercial General Liability insurance provides coverage for claims of bodily injury or
property damage made against the insured for which they become legally liable. The
insurance company will pay on behalf of USA Volleyball and other named insureds,
claims which the Insureds shall become “legally” obligated to pay as damages because
of bodily injury or property damage to which the insurance applies, caused by an
occurrence during the policy period, up to the policy limit.
The General Liability policy for USA Volleyball is an “occurrence” policy. A claim under
this policy shall be considered as being first made at the earliest of the following times:
(a) When USA Volleyball first notifies the Insurance Company in writing that a claim
    has been made; or
(b) When USA Volleyball first notifies the Company in writing that a suit has been
    brought; or
(c) When USA Volleyball first notifies the Company in writing of specific
    circumstances, which may result in a claim being made or suit being brought.

All claims for damages because of bodily injury to the same person, including damages
claimed by any person or organization for care, loss of service, or death resulting at
any time from the bodily injury, will be deemed to have been made at the time the first
of those claims is made.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                        7
All claims for damages because of property damage causing loss to the same person or
organization as a result of an occurrence will be deemed to have been made at the
time of the first of those claims is made.

    alcoholic beverages at functions incidental to USA Volleyball’s normal operations.

(e) Premises Damage Legal Liability - $1,000,000 for property damage to premises

Revised 8/30/2010                                                                   9
SPORT ACCIDENT EXCESS MEDICAL INSURANCE COVERAGE
The Sport Accident Excess Medical insurance program provides participant coverage
for loss resulting directly from members competing in an approved or sanctioned
event. Coverage does not include loss from pre-existing conditions or competing in
non-sanctioned events. The coverage extends from the start, through the completion of
the event, including direct designated group travel to and from the event.
The Medical policy provides up to $25,000 of excess accidental medical coverage for
expenses incurred within one year of the date of the accident. Written proof of loss by
the Insured is required within 90 days or as soon as is reasonably possible. Proof
must, however, be furnished no later than 12 months from the time it is otherwise
required, except in the absence of legal capacity. The policy provides coverage against
loss in excess of coverage provided under other valid and collectible medical insurance
and is subject to a $250 per claim deductible. If no other collectible medical insurance
is available, the loss is subject to a $1,000 deductible.
If injury to the member athlete requires treatment by a legally qualified physician or
confinement in a legally constituted hospital, or employment of a trained nurse, x-ray,
or ambulance services, and if the first expense of such treatment is incurred within 90
days of the date of the accident, the insurance company will pay the usual and
customary expense incurred up to $25,000, subject to the appropriate deductible and
any other collectible insurance.


DEFINITION OF PARTICIPANT: Athletes, coaches, trainers, volunteers, committee
members, officials and any other persons who are functioning on behalf of and/or
while participating in any event sanctioned or approved by USA Volleyball.

DEFINITION OF PARTICIPATING: Participating includes pre-event and post event
activities which are officially approved or sanctioned events. Pre-event activities can
include but are not limited to clinics, event dinners and pre-event practicing. Post
event activities can include but are not limited to award banquets, award ceremonies
and clinics that occur within one day after the event. Coverage is also included for
non-sanctioned volleyball related activities for certified officials who meet extended
coverage criteria.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT WAIVER AND RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
As with most sports activities, a signed “Acknowledgement Waiver and Release from
Liability” (AWRL) form is required from all participants and from parents or guardians
in the case of minors. This requirement exists in virtually every sport. It serves to
document that the participants or parents of participating minors have acknowledged
the inherent risk and danger associated with participating in sporting events. It is
intended to serve as “appreciable warning” of these risks and the participants by
signing the waiver, are giving their informed consent to the acceptance of those risks.
It is important to remember that a signed waiver DOES NOT reduce the need for
insurance or effective safety practices. A signed waiver is USAV’s “first line of defense”
against a cause of action for negligence and is a very effective risk management tool.
The Regional Commissioner and others working under the direction of the Region
must make every effort to conduct an event with safety as the number one concern.

Revised 8/30/2010                                                                15
                                  ***IMPORTANT***

BEHIND THE “CLAIM REPORTING PROCEDURES” YOU WILL FIND AN INCIDENT
REPORT AND A MEDICAL CLAIM FORM.
The Incident Report needs to be completed each and every time a “bodily injury” or
“property damage” loss occurs to a spectator, participant or to the facility itself. Each
Tournament Director, Club Director or Coach should be given a supply of these
Incident Reports and the forms should travel with them to each practice or event. The
Directors and Coaches need to be advised of the importance of completing these
reports on behalf of USA Volleyball whenever a bodily injury or property damage
incident occurs. The Incident Report will enable USA Volleyball to curtail or prevent
fraudulent claims from being paid unnecessarily by matching an Incident Report to
each claim for damages submitted. If an Incident Report cannot be matched to a
claim, the claims representative will know to more thoroughly investigate the claim to
determine if the loss really did arise out of a USA Volleyball event. The ability of USA
Volleyball to minimize fraudulent claims will result in retaining the lowest insurance
costs possible.
The Medical Claim Form should be provided to any participant who sustains an injury
while practicing for or participating in an approved or sanctioned event. Tournament
Directors, Club Directors or coaches should keep a supply of these forms on hand at
each practice or event. The Medical Claim Form is to be completed by the injured
participant and sent directly to American Specialty.
If the claims system works properly, American Specialty will be in receipt of both an
Incident Report from the Event Director or Coach describing the Incident causing
injury and a Medical Claim Form from the injured Participant requesting
reimbursement for the medical claim. When they receive both the Incident Report
Form and the Medical Claim Form for the same incident, they know there is validity in
the claim.

THE LAW AND ATHLETICS
Over the past 10 years the interest in sport activities as a means to keep one’s body in peak
performance has greatly escalated. The desire to keep one’s body in top physical condition
has taken many of us from the occasional morning job, to the three-day a week aerobics and,
for the very serious minded, to long daily workouts. Being a competitive society, we have
always had the urge to test our stamina and physical prowess against others to see who is
the best. We no longer get self-satisfaction by just working out and seeing the physical
results of our training. Competing against fellow athletes has now become the gauge for
determining the effectiveness of our training program and the method for achieving
satisfaction for the pain and strain we put ourselves through to be "#1". All of this has lead to
a tremendous rise in the number of part-time athletes and professional athletes participating
in various individual endurance events and team sports.
The tremendous rise in interest in participating in athletic events has required that more and
more events be sponsored to satisfy the needs of the athletes. As a result, one could probably
find some sort of endurance event or competition in any given city or town across the United
States on each and every Saturday or Sunday throughout the year. All of this competition,
although healthy for mind and body, is not without its detriments. With the increase in
participation and events, has come an increase in the number of participant and spectator
injuries. Many of these injuries have arisen out of the negligence of others resulting in the
rapid escalation of lawsuits filed and large monetary awards given.
In the past, athletic participation was virtually immune from civil liability. If one participated
in or was a spectator of an athletic event, they assumed the risk involved and thus were
barred from any recovery. That thinking and immunity has been eroded in today's judicial
process. The primary defenses of assumption of a risk, contributory negligence, and consent
have become so porous as a result of the high standards that are placed upon the athletic
sponsors, promoters, coordinators, coaches, and participants. Current court cases have
demonstrated that coaches, trainers, and national governing bodies can and will be held
responsible for failing to warn athletes or spectators of the inherent risks, dangers, and
potential injuries or death that may result from participating in athletic events.
With the erosion of common law defenses and the increase in standards to which people
involved in athletics are held, it has become paramount that strategies be implemented to
counterattack these trends and improve the overall quality of sporting activities. The key
ingredient to effectively minimize potential injuries and resulting litigation is the
implementation of specifically designed safety guidelines. It cannot be stressed enough that
failure to conduct athletic events with the utmost care will increase the vulnerability of event
promoters, directors, coaches, and governing bodies to litigation.

THE ELEMENTS OF NEGLIGENCE

The single factor that probably leads to more litigation as a result of participant or spectator
injury is the limited knowledge coaches, trainers, administrators, and Directors have
concerning the elements constituting negligence. A better understanding of how civil law
works will better prepare you to foresee potential negligence and thus take steps to minimize
the loss that may result.
There are four key elements that must be present to bring a cause of action for negligence:
1. A "duty" or obligation must be owed to another, which requires one party to conform to a
   certain standard or conduct for the protection of the other party from unreasonable harm.
2. A breach of that duty to conform to the standards.



Revised 8/30/2010                                                                 23
3. An injury must arise from the breach of duty. It must be shown that the breach of duty
   was the proximate cause of the injury.
4. Monetary damages are warranted as compensation for the injury.
The common law rule of thumb as respects to an action of negligence is the "Reasonable and
Prudent Person" doctrine. If an individual acted in a manner that was consistent with how a
reasonable and prudent person, given the facts at hand, would have acted, a cause of action
for negligence would be unfounded. With the increase in sports technology, medicine, and
equipment, the foreseeable cause of injury or loss has been increased. Thus individuals
involved in sporting activities have been held to a higher level of supervision and
accountability.
There are no specific criteria for determining negligence. Every cause of action must stand on
its own merits. Accidents do occur and in every instance, someone can be held negligent for
that accident. It has always been incumbent upon the plaintiff to prove the elements of
negligence. There must be sufficient evidence that alleged negligence was the proximate
cause of the loss and that no other intervening factors contributed to the loss. Courts have
not been holding defendants liable where substantial evidence proves that the defendant
acted with prudence and caution in performing their duties.
THE DEFENSES AGAINST NEGLIGENCE
Although eroded in effectiveness, there are generally accepted defenses against a cause of
negligence. The following are the most widely used defenses:
1. Failure to prove one or more of the elements of negligence necessary to recover damages.
2. Assumption of Risk. This is one of the oldest defenses against a cause of action for
   negligence and is a defense that has probably eroded the most over the years. When an
   individual voluntarily assumes the risk of injury or harm arising from the conduct of
   others, he or she cannot recover if the harm or injury actually occurs. The erosion of this
   defense has occurred as a result of the higher standard of care required of a defendant in
   advising the plaintiff, prior to injury or harm, of the potential risks involved in
   participating in the event.
3. Last Clear Chance. This defense puts the burden of responsibility on the plaintiff as the
   plaintiff had the "last clear chance" to avoid the injury or harm. This defense was only
   held to be valid if the harm or injury was foreseeable by the plaintiff and the plaintiff
   could have taken action to avoid the harm or injury.
4. Contributory Negligence. This defense varies by state and prevents a cause of action in
   negligence if the plaintiff, even in the slightest degree, contributed to his or her own harm
   or injury. With this defense, courts will evaluate the standard of conduct required of the
   defendant based upon the age, physical capacity, sex and training of the plaintiff before
   making a decision as to fault.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                24
5. Comparative Negligence. This is a relatively new defense and one that was established by
   state statute to offset the unfairness associated with the contributory negligence defense,
   which barred a plaintiff from recovery even though they may have been only 1% at fault.
   Under the comparative negligence doctrine, recovery for damages is pro-rated based upon
   the percentage of fault associated with the plaintiff. Unlike contributory negligence, a
   plaintiff may be 1-49% negligent and still recover damages from the defendant. The
   plaintiff’s percentage of fault to recover under comparative negligence varies by state and
   40 states have enacted some form of comparative negligence statute. Typically, a plaintiff
   with 50% or more of the fault will be barred from recovery.

FACTORS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO NEGLIGENCE
There are five fundamental factors that contribute to a cause of action of negligence. It is
important that you be very aware of these factors and take steps to minimize or eliminate
these factors whenever possible.
1. Ignorance of the Rules. Someone once said "Ignorance is bliss" and that if you were not
   aware of the rules how could you be held accountable. In today's litigious society,
   ignorance of rules is not an acceptable basis on which decisions should be made. It is
   vitally important to the success of any sporting event that all parties involved know the
   rules.
2. Ignoring the Rules. Ignoring the rules under which a sporting event is to be conducted is
   to ignore safety. USA Volleyball has a specific set of rules designed to insure the safety of
   participants and spectators of the sport. USA Volleyball's number one priority is to insure
   the safety of all those involved in the sport of volleyball. To ignore these rules not only
   subjects participants to potential harm, but exposes USA Volleyball to a great deal of
   liability.
3. Failure to Act. Success of any sporting event is dependent upon the people directing the
   event to respond quickly to problems and act in a "proactive" manner in lieu of a
   "reactive" manner. Unfortunately, too many event directors or officials tend to react after a
   tragedy or serious injury occurs. They react to crisis when prevention is the key.
   They fail to:
       a. Assign competent personnel to supervise, maintain, inspect and repair the court or
          equipment;
       b. Review all aspects of the event prior to tournament day with supervising personnel
          to insure a coordinated effort and/or
       c. Conduct clinics for officials, safety teams and medical teams.
4. Money. Insufficient funds to properly conduct a safe sporting event often times prevents
   action. The lack of funds or unwillingness to spend money leads to:
       a.   Reduction in safety and services;
       b.   Not training or hiring competent personnel;
       c.   Not securing safe equipment; and
       d.   Not inspecting and maintaining equipment and facilities.
5. Failure to Warn. A great deal of duty is being placed on the event director or official by the
   courts to warn participants of any potential hazards associated with the event. Knowing
   conditions of the facility and making these conditions known to the participants prior to
   the event are essential. Failure to warn of hazardous or potentially hazardous conditions,
   especially when known, is the #1 factor leading to large monetary damages being awarded
   to injured athletes.

   USA Volleyball has developed a "Waiver, Release of Liability and Indemnity Agreement"


Revised 8/30/2010                                                                25
   which must be signed by each participating athlete or athlete's parent or guardian, if a
   minor. The waiver includes:
       a. An acknowledgment of the risk involved in playing a sport.
       b. Agreement by participant to follow the rules and regulations of the sport of
          volleyball.
       c. A statement of the USA Volleyball Participant Code of Conduct essential to
          participating in the sport.
       d. Waiver of liability provision.
       e. Indemnification and Hold Harmless provision.

This agreement is invaluable in assigning responsibility to the athlete or parent / guardian
and for providing good public relations by advising the athlete and/or parent / guardian of
the risks of injury. It is important to remember that there is no foolproof way for USA
Volleyball, directors or others to transfer responsibility for conducting a reasonably safe
event. Reliance on a waiver or hold harmless agreement without utilizing good common
safety practices in conducting an event is the equivalent of putting a fire out with gasoline. It
just will not work and will no doubt make matters worse than they would have been.
EFFECTIVE RISK MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
Although not all-inclusive, the following risk management recommendations, if implemented,
will help to prevent situations that may lead to injuries and subsequent litigation.
1. Warn, in specific terms, the athlete and parent/guardian of all the possible risks inherent
   in the sport activity in which they are participating.
2. Consistently use a waiver and release of liability that has been prepared by a competent
   attorney knowledgeable of sports law. Never allow a participant to participate without
   reading and signing the waiver.
3. Establish an effective medical plan for accident emergencies.
4. Establish a plan for the proper supervision of the athlete's while participating in the
   sporting event.
5. Follow all the sanctioning guidelines for the proper set up and conduction of a volleyball
   event as established by USA Volleyball.
6. Effectuate a public relations program with all parties involved in the event, especially with
   parents and athletes.
7. Conduct ongoing clinics to keep officials and volunteers apprised of changes in rules and
   new techniques used in the sport of volleyball.
8. Conduct periodic safety audits. Inspect equipment and facilities for any possible hazards.
   Keep records.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                 26
THE WAIVER AND RELEASE - HOW IMPORTANT IS IT?
A major concern with many, if not all, Sporting Event Directors or Promoters is how to
conduct an event so that it is both profitable and, more importantly, enjoyable for the
participants as well as the spectators. The various demands placed on the event Directors
and Promoters from Sponsors, Participants, Governmental Agencies, Insurance Companies,
etc., has taken most of the enjoyment out of conducting the event and turned the activity
into a BUSINESS. The days of getting a group of people together with similar sporting
interests for some good old competition and fun has been replaced with the business need to
advertise and promote the event, raise sponsorship money for prizes, fight with
municipalities over securing a permit, find and train volunteers to help conduct the event,
and the constant need to continue looking over your shoulder to see what attorney is
following you to serve legal papers over some frivolous claim.
Since it has now become a BUSINESS and no longer a GAME, how can Event Directors or
Promoters shelter themselves from the ravages of litigation or claims for damages that can or
will arise out of the business of conducting a sporting event? Most people respond by saying
“buy insurance” and look at no other alternatives. If you are one of those people, keep
looking over your shoulder because the “big one” is about to bite you and it’s going to hurt.
Insurance is just one aspect of an overall process called RISK MANAGEMENT that each and
every Event Director and Promoter should be practicing on a daily basis.
The process of Risk Management is to evaluate the potential areas of the event that could
cause a financial loss and develop action plans to help minimize or eliminate the potential for
loss. Risk Management is a dynamic process requiring continuing observation and review.
The purpose of this article is not to focus on the big picture of Risk Management (we will do a
follow-up article outlining the whole process) but rather on one element of the process called
Loss Control - the use of Waivers and Releases.
Probably the one single most important risk management action that an Event Director or
Promoter can take to shelter themselves from litigation by participants is the use of a Waiver
and Release. By using a valid waiver and release you are advising the participant of the
hazards of the sport and are placing more of the burden of responsibility squarely on their
shoulders. USA Volleyball has developed a valid waiver and release that we believe would be
upheld in most if not all jurisdictions. Using a waiver and release that is valid and
enforceable provides you a greater degree of security than one that has not. It is for this
reason that Event Directors and Promoters should be using the USA Volleyball waiver and
release in each and every event.
Using the USA Volleyball waiver and release is one of many risk management techniques that
can be used. It is not the total answer to solving litigation problems but its use, coupled with
a comprehensive insurance program, doing what a “Reasonable and Prudent” person would
do, and abiding by the “rules of the sport” will go a long way in minimizing litigation and
claims problems.
USA Volleyball encourages all tournament directors to use the USA Volleyball waiver and
release as the STANDARD.
By complying with a set of STANDARDS, as evidenced by the event SANCTIONING process,
USA Volleyball is able to work with you in establishing a safe and enjoyable event.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                               27
NON-OWNED AND HIRED AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY
NON-OWNED AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY
Every business entity, Sports Federation or National Governing Body, Tournament or Event
Director, Coach or any other person asking someone else to use their own personal
automobile for the benefit of the business, Federation, Event, Team, etc. faces a financial
exposure to loss called Non-Owned Automobile Liability. Liability for loss arising out of the
non-owned auto can be impinged to the business, Federation, etc., if the vehicle owner did
not carry insurance, had inadequate limits, drove a defective vehicle, or any other host of
reasons. The fact that the vehicle owner would not have been using his or her vehicle at the
time of loss if it were not for the request of the business, Federation, Director, etc. places
some burden of the responsibility for the loss on the requesting entity.
Primary responsibility for any automobile loss always rests with the OWNER of the vehicle. If
the owner of an automobile carries automobile insurance, any driver using the auto, with the
permission of the owner, has insurance coverage extended to them from the owner’s
insurance policy. This would not be the case for an entity who is not driving the vehicle but
who has requested that the vehicle be used for their benefit. It was for this reason that NON-
OWNED AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY INSURANCE coverage was developed.
The purpose of non-owned auto liability insurance is to provide insurance protection to the
Employer, the Federation, Event Director, or Coach whenever they are held responsible for a
loss arising out of an auto they do not own, hire, rent, or personally drive. Coverage under
this insurance DOES NOT extend to the driver or owner of the vehicle involved in the claim
for damages. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT FACT TO REMEMBER WHEN ASKING
VOLUNTEERS, EMPLOYEES, OR OTHERS TO USE THEIR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLES FOR
THE BENEFIT OF THE EVENT OR BUSINESS.
The Master Insurance Policy provided by USA Volleyball CAN provide NON-OWNED
AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY INSURANCE protection for the Association, its Directors, Coaches,
and others acting on behalf of the Association when requesting others to use their personal
autos for the benefit of the Association. This coverage only applies to sanctioned events
where the National Office has granted coverage to the event. The request for coverage
and the authorization must be in writing.
Some risk management principles that should be applied to help minimize the loss potential
arising from the use of non-owned automobiles are:
   1. Always advise the vehicle owner that his/her auto insurance is primary and that the
      Association’s policy would not offer any coverage to the vehicle owner in the event of a
      loss.
   2. Be sure to ask if the volunteer driver’s automobile is covered by insurance. It is
      recommended that the volunteer’s insurance policy have limits of at least $300,000.
   3. Ask what type of automobile will be driven. Whenever possible, make a visual
      evaluation of the vehicle to determine if it’s in good mechanical order.
   4. Whenever possible, request an MVR on the driver to determine driving habits.
   5. Don’t assume anything. Place yourself in the shoes of a “Reasonable and Prudent”
      person and ask yourself, “Would I ride in that car or with that driver?”

You may deem these risk management concepts too cumbersome and they may be for some
situations. Nevertheless, you have an obligation to yourself and others to determine that
people driving vehicles on your behalf are doing so in a prudent and reasonable manner. The
non-owned liability exposure you face in conducting your business or event should not be


Revised 8/30/2010                                                               28
taken lightly.
HIRED AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY
The exposure to loss arising from the use of a Hired Automobile occurs any time an entity or
individual hires, rents, or leases (under 6 months) an automobile for business purposes. The
exposure contemplates both the car/truck being driven by the person renting the vehicle and
a car/truck that is hired with a driver. The first example is the most common in which a
Tournament Director rents a Hertz Truck for three days to move equipment to and from the
event site or several Hertz vans are rented in order to provide transportation for players or
officials to and from an event site. The second example would involve a Director that hires a
bus or van service to haul spectators or participants from a remote parking facility to the
event complex. Both situations occur regularly at many sporting events.
As indicated under the Non-Owned Automobile Liability section, primary responsibility for
loss arising out of an auto rests with the owner of the vehicle. This would be the case with
autos that are hired, rented or leased by an entity. Typically, the rental agreement signed to
take possession of the vehicle transfers the burden of responsibility from the vehicle owner to
the vehicle operator. This contractual transfer of responsibility can cause a tremendous loss
exposure to the Director, Entity, Coach, etc., if not dealt with prudently. This policy does
not include contractual liability if a vehicle is hired.
If a business entity or individual has either a commercial auto or personal auto liability
policy in force that covers the entity or individual for loss arising out of the use of ANY
vehicle, the need for any additional insurance coverage for the Hired Automobile exposure is
minimized. Hired Automobile Liability insurance coverage was designed to provide
automobile liability coverage for those entities or individuals that do not OWN autos and
therefore, would not have a need to purchase a commercial or personal auto liability policy.
The Master Insurance Policy provided by USA Volleyball does provide HIRED AUTOMOBILE
LIABILITY insurance coverage to the Association and all individuals renting, hiring, or leasing
vehicles on behalf of the Association when written permission is obtained from USA
Volleyball. The vehicle would have to be rented in the NAME OF THE ASSOCIATION or in the
NAME OF THE SANCTIONED EVENT for coverage to apply. Only those people authorized by
the national office of USA Volleyball to conduct business on behalf of USA Volleyball can give
permission to rent a vehicle in the name of the ASSOCIATION or SANCTIONED EVENT.
Permission in writing must be granted by the appropriate authorized person at the USA
Volleyball National Office. Directors or others renting, hiring, or leasing a vehicle in their own
names without written permission by USA Volleyball would not have coverage under the USA
Volleyball policy.
Examples of How Non-Owned and Hired Automobile Coverage Would Apply: (Examples
are generic in nature and may not reflect the actual outcome of a claim.)

NON-OWNED AUTOMOBILE EXAMPLES
1. A coach asks a Junior Player’s mother to transport several players to an upcoming,
   sanctioned tournament and an ensuing “at fault” accident occurs injuring players as well
   as others. Because of the severity of the accident, the mother, the coach, and USA
   Volleyball are sued for damages. Coverage for the coach and USA Volleyball would be
   provided by the USA Volleyball policy. No coverage would be provided to the mother.
2. A coach transports players to a sanctioned or approved event in his/her vehicle and is
   involved in an accident causing injury to players and others. An injured player sues the
   coach, the Regional Commissioner, and USA Volleyball for damages. Coverage would be
   provided to the Commissioner and USA Volleyball but not the coach.

3. A parent or player is transporting other players to a sanctioned or approved event in
   his/her own personal auto and a fatality accident occurs. Neither the parent nor player
   was asked by USA Volleyball to transport players. No coverage would be provided by the
   USA Volleyball policy.

4. A Tournament Director of a sanctioned event asks a 17 year old volunteer to use her
   personal auto to pick up some important officials and sponsors from the airport. On
   returning from the airport, there is an accident resulting in severe injury to one of the
   passengers. Suit is brought against the driver, the Director, the Region and USA
   Volleyball for negligence in allowing the inexperienced driver to drive. Coverage would be
   provided for the Director, Region, and USA Volleyball but not for the driver.

HIRED AUTOMOBILE EXAMPLES

1. A Regional Commissioner hires a truck and driver to transport equipment to the
   tournament site of the Regional Championships. The truck is insured with $100,000 of
   Liability Insurance. While transporting the equipment, the driver rear-ends a school bus.
   The $100,000 of insurance coverage on the truck is inadequate to cover the loss. Parents
   sue the Regional Commissioner and USA Volleyball for their negligence in hiring an
   underinsured trucker. Coverage would be provided to the Commissioner and USA
   Volleyball but not the trucker. This policy does not include contractual liability if a
   vehicle is hired with a driver. The owner of the vehicle should provide insurance
   and name USA Volleyball, its Regions & the Tournament Director/Club as
   additional insureds.

2. Four courtesy cars are rented from Hertz to be used by Officials at the U.S. Junior
   National Championships. Permission was granted by USA Volleyball to the Tournament
   Director to rent the cars in the name of the Tournament. An Official is involved in an auto
   accident causing injury to another party. The injured party seeks damages from the
   Official and the Tournament Director. If the Official has an auto policy in force, that policy
   would respond to cover the official. The USA Volleyball policy would provide coverage for
   the Tournament Director and potential excess coverage for the Official.

3. An auto is rented by the Tournament Director with written permission from the national
   office of USA Volleyball. The Director asks a volunteer to use the vehicle to pick up
   Officials at the airport. On the way to the airport, an accident occurs. The injured party
   sues the driver and the Tournament Director. The USA Volleyball policy would provide
   coverage to both the driver and Director.

4. An auto is rented in the name of the Tournament Director to haul equipment to and from
   a tournament site sanctioned by USA Volleyball. USA Volleyball granted no authorization
   for the use of the auto. While hauling equipment, the Director is involved in an accident.
   No coverage would be provided to the Tournament Director. Coverage would be provided
   to USA Volleyball if the Association were named in a suit.

SPORT ACCIDENT EXCESS MEDICAL COVERAGE -

Sport Accident Excess Medical coverage provided under the USA Volleyball master insurance
policy is intended to provide up to $25,000 of Sport Accident Excess Medical coverage for
injuries sustained while participating in an approved or sanctioned event. The coverage is not
designed to replace existing medical coverage available to a participant through employment or
any other means and cannot be used in lieu of existing medical coverage. The sole purpose of
the Sport Accident Excess Medical coverage is to help supplement the out of pocket costs
(deductibles, co-payments, coinsurance) associated with primary medical coverage and to
provide reimbursement for covered sports accidents when no other collectible insurance is
available.
Coverage will reimburse an injured participant for their potion of covered expenses subject to
the Sport Accident Excess Medical deductible. The Sport Accident Excess Medical deductible
is currently $250 if other primary health care coverage is available, or $1,000 if no other
health care coverage is available.
To assist you in understanding how Sport Accident Excess Medical claims may be handled if
submitted to the insurance carrier for payment, the following claims scenarios have been
developed. Find the claims scenario that matches your particular claim situation to

A COACHES NIGHTMARE - AN ACCUSATION OF SEXUAL ABUSE OR
MOLESTATION

One of the single most devastating accusations that can be leveled against a coach or team
manager is that of sexual abuse or molestation of team members. Whether one is guilty or
not of the charge, the mere accusation of child abuse can severely ruin an individual’s
reputation. These types of claims make great “press” in the newspaper and are often the talk
of the town once they are made public.
Once accused of being a “child molester” or “pedophile” it is very difficult to overcome the
stigma, even if totally exonerated of all charges. It is for this reason that a great deal of
personal care and protection is taken to minimize placing yourself or the Association in
position of having to defend against such a devastating claim.
Child abuse can happen in any number of ways and is not limited to the physical touching of
a child. Claims can arise out of an oral utterance of sexual content; by over disciplining a
player in practice; from the improper use of an auto; from negligent supervision; improper
coaching or instruction; or supplying minors with alcohol. It is not uncommon for coaches or
managers to be guilty of one or more of these activities in an “unknowing” way.
How can USA Volleyball or its coaches/managers/volunteers protect against such
accusations? How can the Association, its Regions, or Clubs guard against allowing known
pedophiles, “closet” pedophiles, or others with serious criminal histories from
associating with junior players and exposing the players to undo harm? These are difficult
questions to answer due to the various legal issues, rights of privacy issues, and
organizational issues that come into play regarding this subject. Some common sense
approaches to this problem can be addressed that would go along way in minimizing this
problem.
Legal Responsibility
The Volunteers for Children Act, signed into law in 1998, captures the importance of
preventative measures that must be taken by sports organizations with regard to abuse.
Under this law, if a volunteer or employee of the organization sexually molests a child in his
or her care – and it can be shown that the molester had been previously convicted of a
relevant crime elsewhere in the U.S. then the organization may be held liable for negligent
hiring practices.
How to Protect the Association, Region, or Club
Create and adopt a sexual abuse and molestation policy statement that is universal within
the Association that includes the following provisions:

A. Any adult with a legally documented history of child molestation, physical abuse, or other
   criminal activity that would pose harm to members of the Association would be excluded
   from membership participation.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                             34
B. Establish a policy of screening potential coaches, managers, or volunteers by
   conducting comprehensive criminal background checks prior to their involvement
   in the program. The background check should include; social security verification,
   address history, a local & national search of criminal records and sex offender
   registries. It is important that all misdemeanors and felonies be included in this
   search as often times serious crimes or felonies are pled down to lesser crimes or
   misdemeanors. Knowledge that such a background check is required is often helpful
   in keeping “pedophiles” and other predators from infiltrating the organization. This
   activity would require the permission of the individual before conducting the background
   check.
C. Establish a policy or procedure that limits who and what information is made available as
   a result of the background check. Confidentiality is extremely important and any
   discussions relating to this information should be limited to those individuals who have
   “a need to know”. It is recommended that this responsibility rest with a “board member”
   of the organization to insure discretion and confidentiality.
D. Establish a training or awareness program for current and new coaches, managers or
   volunteers regarding abuse and molestation issues. To develop procedures or rules is only
   half the battle. The organization needs to continually inform, remind, and train its
   members in order for the procedures or rules to be truly effective.

How to Protect Yourself
As a coach, manager, or volunteer you can minimize your risk by not putting yourself in a
position that could lead to a claim of abuse or molestation. This is often times easier said
than done. Some rules to live by would include:
A. Never coach alone. Encourage a player’s parent to assist in or monitor the practice.
B. Never encourage or allow players to share a room with a coach without another adult
   present in the room.
C. If you are a male coach coaching female players or vise versa, avoid physical touching in
   demonstrating a technique, concept or drill. Use another coach or parent as your model
   in lieu of a player. Keep your hands in your pockets.
D. When transporting players, obey all traffic laws. Require the use of seat belts.
E. Try to refrain from giving personal one-on-one coaching without another adult present.
F. Routinely communicate with parents concerning their sons or daughters. Address
   discipline or coaching problems promptly with the parents and the player. Let the parents
   know what the outcomes will be if change is not fostered.

G. Be observant and provide proper supervision of the practice or game. Do not depend on
   players to be responsible for their activities in your absence.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                               35
Following these types of rules will help you from having to defend yourself against an
unwarranted claim of abuse or molestation. Whether it is feasible to implement these
personal rules or policies for the Association is solely dependent upon the effort and concern
placed by the Association or its members in minimizing this exposure. For the Association or
its members to ignore or down play the potential risks of abuse or molestation accusations
pose a tremendous threat to the overall organization. “Sticking our head in the sand” and
only dealing with this potential problem when it occurs is not the solution. We do not want to
find ourselves in “damage control” after the fact, but rather we want to be in control and
prevent the damage from ever happening.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT
An employer must provide a work environment that is free of discrimination. This means a
workplace that is free of harassment, whether it is intentional or unintentional. Employees
and applicants for employment must be free of harassment of the basis of race, religious
creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical handicap, medical condition, marital status,
sex or age. Harassment in the workplace is illegal no matter what its form; even innocently
intended remarks or uninvited touching may be seen as harassment. The employer may
become liable if he/she knows or even should have known of conduct considered harassment
and failed to take immediate and appropriate corrective action.
This applies not only to employers, but also to labor organizations, employment agencies,
apprenticeship programs or any of their agents or supervisors. Employers are required to
have a program in place to prevent discrimination and harassment in the workplace and
must take all reasonable steps to prevent harassment and discrimination from occurring.
Exempted are religious organizations or corporations not organized for private profit.
Harassment includes, among other things, verbal, physical or visual harassment. Sexual
harassment includes conditioning a promotion or benefits on sexual favors. Although other
provisions of the Fair Employment and Housing Act apply only to employers with five or more
employees, the harassment provisions apply to all employers who regularly employ one or
more persons.
However, where the employee establishes that the violation was willful, the employer
becomes liable for damages and compensatory and punitive damages. Regardless of whether
the employee proves intent, the employer will be liable for court costs and reasonable
attorney’s fees if a violation is proved. If an individual supervisor failed to take action to warn
the harassing party and failed to report the incident, the supervisor may be individually
liable.
The Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued some guidelines
that declare sexual harassment to be a form of sex discrimination in violation of Title VII.
There are:
1. “Unwelcome” conduct. The commission considers “unwelcome” conduct which the victim
   did not solicit or incite and which the victim regarded as undesirable or offensive. The
   commission will look at whether the victim’s conduct was consistent with the assertion
   that the sexual conduct was unwelcome.
2. Evaluating evidence of harassment. While not a necessary element of a claim, whether the
   charging party made a contemporaneous complaint or the commission when evaluating
   evidence of sexual harassment will look at protest carefully.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                 36
3. “Hostile” environment. A “reasonable person” standard will be used in determining
   whether a hostile environment existed and no violation is likely to be found “if the
   challenged conduct would not substantially affect the work environment of a reasonable
   person.”
4. Employer liability. The employer will always be held responsible for acts of “quid pro quo”
   sexual harassment. In hostile environment cases, the commission will examine carefully
   whether the employer has in place an appropriate and effective complaint procedure
   designed to encourage victims to come forward, and if so, whether the victim used it.
5. Remedies. If it finds that the “harassment has been eliminated, all victims made whole
   and preventive measure instituted,” the commission normally will administratively close
   the charge on the basis the employer took prompt remedial action. Harassment because
   of sex, race, color, religion or national origin is a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
   The EEOC has published guidelines on harassment because of sex, which can be
   summarized as follows:
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct
of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when:
Submission to such conduct is made a condition of employment; or
A. Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for employment decisions;
   or
B. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s
   work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment.
In addition to the publication of a policy outlining corporate non-discrimination policy,
employers need to specify the executive to whom complaints of harassment or any other form
of discrimination may be directed. If in effect, an employer needs a policy and a mechanism
to enforce the policy equitably.
Because the threshold of offense varies between and among individuals, and because
avoidance of harassment is so important in the workplace, there needs to be some focus on
the issue by supervision and management. Following dos and don’ts for your consideration:
   Do write and distribute a clear statement of the company’s position on harassment of
    employees and visitors to the workplace.
   Do set a good example as a member of management.
   Do take any complaints seriously, even if your initial judgment is that the complaint is
    trivial or unwarranted.
   Do investigate complaints and take corrective action.

   Don’t use your management position to request personal favors of any kind.

   Don’t wait for a complaint if you personally observe something that is likely to be
    offensive.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                 37
The employer is held strictly liable for harassment of an applicant or employee through the
employee’s supervisors or agents. The employer also can be held liable for harassment if one
employee harasses another employee and if the employer fails to have a policy about the
harassment and fails to take corrective action. If the employer, supervisor or agent turns his
or her back on the situation, it does not relieve the employer of responsibility or liability.
Therefore, the employer, supervisor or agent should take immediate corrective action at the
highest level. This could include speaking to the involved employees, (complainant, accused
and witnesses), and/or taking immediate disciplinary action. It would be wise to establish an
ongoing program to eliminate harassment in the workplace.
When an incident occurs involving harassment - sexual, racial or otherwise - the employer
should:
1. Document the event.
2. Treat it confidentially.
3. Treat it seriously.
4. Have management treat the situation as far up the chain of command as possible.
   Incidents involving serious violations that appear to be deliberate or inexcusable may be
   subject to punitive damages. Although the Federal statutes pertaining to harassment are
   specifically targeted at “for profit” business organizations, there may be a significant
   impact on “non-profit” organizations as well. USA Volleyball, its Regional Associations and
   Clubs should take all reasonable and necessary steps to minimize the threat of
   harassment within the overall Association.

VOLUNTEER CONSENT FORM
Your participation as a volunteer working for the Volleyball Club is greatly appreciated.
Without your support it would be very difficult for the club to provide a quality volleyball
program. As a volunteer you may be asked to assist in a variety of activities including
transporting players; conducting fund raisers; being a team parent or representative; working
concessions at tournaments; etc. The purpose of this document is to advise you that the
activities you may be involved with could result in bodily injury to yourself or others. The
Club has taken every reasonable precaution to provide a safe environment for you and other
members of the Club.
The Club is covered by a “master” insurance policy provided by USA Volleyball for all
approved or sanctioned USA Volleyball activities. As a volunteer you are afforded liability
insurance protection for all approved or sanctioned activities you are involved in as long as
those activities are being conducted at the direction or request of the Club. The insurance
policy provides $1,000,000 per occurrence limits of liability protection.
The Club does not provide workers’ compensation or medical insurance coverage to
volunteers. In addition, the Club does not provide any auto liability insurance protection to
you in the event you are asked to use your automobile for the benefit of the Club. Medical
insurance and auto liability insurance would be the responsibility of the volunteer. In
addition to liability coverage, the master policy does provide a sport accident policy. This
policy will cover accident only related injuries to the volunteer while they are serving in their
capacity as a volunteer for USA Volleyball. This policy is secondary to any other insurance
the volunteer might have and is limited to a maximum of $25,000.
I have read this document, understand its purpose, and consent to be a volunteer.

                     ________
Signature of Volunteer                           Date

CHAPERONE RESPONSIBILITIES
Thank you very much for volunteering to be a junior team chaperone. As a chaperone you are
assuming certain responsibilities for the welfare of the players under your care, custody and
control. To assist you in knowing what your responsibilities are we have created this
information sheet for you. Please read and discuss these responsibilities with the team coach
or manager. If you understand and accept these responsibilities please sign and date the
bottom of the form and return the form to the coach or manager.

As a Chaperone, I understand and take responsibility for the following:

1. As an assigned driver transporting players to and from an event, I will obey all traffic laws
   and will not take any driving risks that will place the players or me in a harmful situation.
   All players as well as myself will wear seatbelts while in the automobile.

2. If using my personal automobile for transporting players, I understand that I am
   responsible for any accidents or injuries to my automobile, myself or to the players. I agree
   to have automobile liability insurance in the amount of $300,000 or more covering the
   automobile I will use to transport players. I agree not to transport more players than my
   automobile has seatbelts for.

3. I will have a meeting with the players I am chaperoning to discuss the following:
   a. Room accommodations - player responsibilities and conduct
   b. Curfew
   c. Check-in requirements with you if the players are going to leave the hotel.
   d. Review of departure times and team activity agenda times.
   e. Alcohol, tobacco and illegal drug restrictions.
   f. Team meals.

4. I will refrain from using alcoholic beverages while conducting my chaperone
   responsibilities. I will absolutely not drink and drive myself or any players while acting as a
   chaperone. If for any reason I feel impaired to chaperone, drive, or carry out any of my
   responsibilities I will personally contact the team coach or manager and advise him/her of
   my impairment.

5. I will do everything that is reasonable and prudent to insure the safety of myself and the
   players while performing any chaperone duties.

6. As a chaperone, I understand that I am working under the direction of the Club, Regional
   Volleyball Association, or USA Volleyball. Any General Liability insurance available to the
   Club, Regional Association or USA Volleyball (excluding auto insurance) is also made
   available to me while working on behalf of or at the direction of the Club, Regional
   Association or USA Volleyball. I understand that I may be personally responsible and liable
   for any of my actions that fall outside the scope of authority granted to me by the Club,
   Regional Association, or USA Volleyball.

7. I agree and consent to a background screening check.

CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENTS
A “risk management” concern that is beginning to pose serious threats to USA
Volleyball, as well as all other sports National Governing Bodies providing a “master”
insurance program is that of liability assumed under a contract. There is a definite
trend by municipalities, school districts, and other owners of sports venues to try and
transfer all responsibility of loss to the individual or organization renting or using the
venue facility. We have seen numerous instances in which coaches or clubs have
been required to assume “all risks of loss” to a gym or facility as a prerequisite to
securing a rental agreement. What is most disturbing about this trend is that the
coach or club manager signing the rental agreement is often times unaware of the
extent of responsibility assumed by the rental contract.
A rental contract or agreement is a legally binding document that needs to be read
closely before signing. As a matter of law or public policy in most jurisdictions, one
individual or entity cannot transfer their negligent activity to another by contract.
What is deemed to be negligent activity can vary dramatically from court to court and
circumstance to circumstance and, irrespective of any laws, people or entities
continually try to transfer as much responsibility as possible via a contract or
agreement. (Refer to the articles in the Risk Management section of this manual titled
THE ELEMENTS OF NEGLIGENCE and THE DEFENSES AGAINST NEGLIGENCE for
addition information.) Even though there may be favorable laws or public policy
protecting against unfair transfer of negligence, a “signed” agreement between two
legally responsible individuals or entities providing for proper consideration may
require arbitration or legal assistance to resolve “responsibility” issues. Arbitration or
legal assistance requires time and money, both of which would be better spent on the
sport of volleyball. For this reason, we believe it better to spend a little more time
reading, understanding and amending a rental contract prior to signing rather than
disputing legal issues at the time of a loss.
The following information is a guide to help you in better understanding issues related
to the assumption of risk by contract. You are not expected to understand all the legal
jargon or issues relating to a contract, but a little knowledge may prevent the
Association from incurring a great deal of risk that would not otherwise be accepted in
the absence of such knowledge. When in doubt, ESIX or the National Office of USA
Volleyball can assist in evaluating a rental agreement or any other contract in which
there is HOLD HARMLESS and INDEMNIFICATION provision.
Liability Assumed by Contract
You will find that most municipalities, schools, or venue owners will require USA
Volleyball to hold them harmless and cover all legal expenses as a requirement of
using their facility. This contractual liability is covered under the USA Volleyball
insurance program and the degree of responsibility will be determined by the wording
of the agreement. From a risk management perspective, the two most important
sections of any contract to review are the Indemnification and Insurance sections.
These two sections can often times be amended so as not to adversely affect USA
Volleyball.
There are a wide variety of Indemnification clauses used in rental agreements. Most
are written to favor the Lessor (municipal, school district, or venue owner) and require
the Lessee (USA Volleyball) to incur more responsibility than necessary. Whenever
possible, the Indemnification provision should allocate the responsibilities of each
party clearly and equitably. Indemnification provisions that appear to be one sided (in
favor of the Lessor only) should be avoided or amended. The following is an example
of an ACCEPTABLE Indemnification provision:




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                41
USA Volleyball shall defend and hold Lessor, its officers, employees and agents
harmless from and against any and all liability, loss, expense (including
reasonable attorney fees), or claims for injury or damages arising out of the
performance of this Agreement but only in proportion to and to the extent such
liability, loss, expense, attorney’s fees, or claims for injury or damages are
caused by or result from the negligence or intentional acts or omissions of USA
Volleyball, it Regional Associations, Clubs, officers, employees, or agents.
The Lessor shall defend and hold USA Volleyball, its Regional Associations,
Clubs, officers, employees, or agents harmless from and against any and all
liability, loss, expense (including reasonable attorney fees), or claims for injury
or damages arising out of the performance of this Agreement but only in
proportion to and to the extent such liability, loss, expense, attorney fees, or
claims from injury or damages are caused by or result from the negligence or
intentional acts or omissions of the Lessor, its officers, employees, or agents.
The reason the wording of this Indemnification provision is acceptable is that each
party to the agreement is only responsible for their own negligence. Often times we
rent a facility that has inherent hazards (unsafe floor conditions or equipment) that
are clearly the responsibility of the venue owner. If a loss occurs resulting from
unsafe premises, USA Volleyball should not incur this responsibility or loss. Attached
to this document is a “checklist” that should be used and completed prior to final
signing of any rental agreement. The checklist will assist in identifying exposures to
loss that can be identified and dealt with prior to renting the facility.
In the event that a rental agreement does not have a mutually favorable
Indemnification agreement, it is recommended that we negotiate to have the attached
“Indemnification Clause Addendum” added to the agreement. In most cases, the
attachment of this Addendum should not be a major obstacle in securing a favorable
rental agreement. When it is an issue and securing gym space is in jeopardy, some
tough business decisions have to be made. If we can identify and control inherent
hazards that are clearly the responsibility of the venue owner or the owner works with
USA Volleyball to control such hazards, signing an agreement with an unfavorable
indemnification provision may be permissible. When in doubt, always seek the opinion
of legal counsel, ESIX or the National Office. Continued claims activity resulting from
USA Volleyball’s assumption of negligence by contract that could have been prevented
or minimized will have a tremendous impact on the cost of insurance paid by the
Association. The exposure to loss resulting from the assumption of liability by contract
is controllable and every effort should be made to control such loss. Failure to do so
affects everyone. Great care should be exercised in controlling potential damage to
property in your care,
custody & control.

         DIRECTORS’ & OFFICERS’ LIABILITY INSURANCE PROGRAM

ESIX, in conjunction with the national office of USA Volleyball, has developed a special
Not-For-Profit Directors and Officers Liability program for the Boards of Directors of
the member clubs and Regional Volleyball Associations of USA Volleyball. For 2010,
ESIX, our insurance broker, has negotiated a program that offers broad protection for
this exposure at very competitive rates. We endorse and sponsor this program and
have negotiated coverage that is customized for our local and regional organizations.
An electronic platform has been created to make the application and payment process
easy and quick.

Briefly, a $1,000,000 limit of protection may be purchased by each individual Club to
protect all directors, officers, employees, and volunteers of that Club for $575*
annually if that Club’s gross receipts are under $1,000,000. An optional limit of
$2,000,000 is available through this program for the annual premium of $875*. If the
Club’s annual gross receipts exceed $1,000,000, please print the offline application
and fax it to Jennifer Waller at ESIX at 678-324-3303 or email it to
jwaller@esixglobal.com to be quoted individually. Both premiums assume no pending
or prior loss activity and assume the club has less than 5 paid employees*.
*Premium and program disqualification criteria subject to change after
11/1/2010.

All policies have November 1st effective date. For any club enrolling mid-year, a pro-
rata premium will be charged. There will be a minimum premium of $100.

We highly encourage each Club to purchase this insurance protection. You can do so
by accessing the web site and following the link entitled, “Club Directors and Officers
Coverage” or by visiting http://www.fastcov.com/usavolleyball. You will find
extensive information regarding your personal risks; hypothetical claims scenarios, a
coverage description, and other information regarding this important protection there
as well.

We hope that the majority of USAV Regions and Clubs will participate this year. If you
have not purchased this coverage in the past, you will be filling a major gap in your
insurance program by purchasing this coverage.

Please feel free to call Jennifer Waller at ESIX at 1-800-342-4371 Ext. 120 to discuss
this information.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                              52
Understanding Directors and Officers Liability
The following information is offered to help understand the coverage. However, in order
to fully understand the Association Liability Policy, the policy should be read and
reviewed in detail. The precise coverage afforded is subject to the terms, conditions and
policy as issued.

What is Association Liability Insurance?
Association Liability Insurance is a form of errors and omissions coverage for the
managers of an organization's affairs and others who, while acting in their capacity as
directors, officers, employees or volunteers of the organization, function in various
roles to achieve the objectives of the organization.

It is similar in nature to policies maintained by or for the benefit of other
professionals, such as lawyers, accountants, doctors, etc. Coverage is triggered by a
claim made against a director, officer, employee or volunteer alleging that while he was
acting in his capacity as such, he did or failed to do something (committed what the
policy calls a Wrongful Act) for which he should be held personally accountable.
Coverage also extends to the organization if named as a defendant in a lawsuit.

If I am sued, what financial protection do I have?
There are two methods by which the organization can provide financial protection to
its directors, officers, employees, and volunteers: indemnification and insurance.
Every state by statute permits nonprofit corporations to indemnify their directors and
officers against loss incurred as a result of certain types of claims. However, such
indemnification does not provide protection in all instances. Additionally, the
organization may not have sufficient financial resources with which to pay the losses
and defense expenses. This is why most nonprofit organizations purchase Association
Liability insurance.

Why do claims arise?
The law provides that under given circumstances, directors, officers, employees
and/or volunteers can be held personally accountable for their actions. These
individuals can be held accountable for failing to act in accordance with the high
standard of conduct commensurate with the duties owed to their constituents.

Additional information can be found under:

       Hypothetical Claims Scenarios
        (http://www.fastcov.com/usavolleyball/hypothetical_scenarios.asp )

Who brings these suits?
Potential claimants include:

       Employees - allegations may include wrongful termination, discrimination, or sexual harassment
       Volunteers - allegations may include failure to supervise others activities which resulted in harm
        to the volunteer
       Members (players) and/or their parents - allegations may include failure to properly supervise,
        discrimination, denial of credentialing, sexual harassment, or any other dispute in which the
        member (player) believes caused harm to him or her
       Competing clubs - allegations may include libel and slander or unfair trade practices
       Organization - allegations may include breach of your duty of care
       Outsiders - outside third parties who transact business or otherwise deal with the organization
        may assert a claim against a director and/or officer if such outsider has been personally and
        directly harmed by the wrongdoing


Revised 8/30/2010                                                                               53
Who is covered?
Past, present, and future directors, officers, employees and volunteers are covered for
the reasonable costs of defending themselves against claims alleging a wrongful act, as
well as the personal liabilities that they incur for their acts. Additionally, the
organization is covered to the degree that it can or may be permitted to indemnify its
directors, officers, employees and volunteers and for its direct obligations.

What is covered?
Association Liability insurance protection revolves around the term "wrongful act,"
which basically means any actual or alleged act, error, omission, misstatement,
misleading statement, neglect or breach of duty while acting in your capacity as a
director, officer, employee or volunteer and on behalf of your organization.

What is not covered?
The policy contains relatively few exclusions which are briefly described as follows:

       An adjudication of gaining illegal personal profit or advantage
       An adjudication of a criminal, fraudulent or dishonest act
       For bodily injury or property damage
       Alleging or arising from responsibilities and obligations imposed by the Employee Retirement
        Income Securities Act of 1974 (ERISA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (Except the Equal Pay Act),
        the National Labor Relations Act, and other similar federal, state or local statutory law
       Alleging or arising from obligations pursuant to any workers' compensation, disability benefits,
        unemployment compensation, unemployment insurance, retirement benefits, social security
        benefits or similar law
       Arising from pollution or contamination
       Brought by one Insured against another Insured, except for derivative claims or employment
        practices claims
       Insured under a policy previously in force
       Alleging or arising from professional services performed for others
       Arising from pending or prior litigation (as of the date of the first policy purchased)
       Alleging or arising from an express or implied contract, except for employment practices claims
       Arising out of circumstances which at the inception date of the policy any director, officer,
        employee or volunteer should have recognized as having the potential for claim

This list is not exhaustive but does contain many of the exclusions relied upon by the insurer to
circumscribe the coverage. It is important to review the actual policy for specific language and terms.

How much protection is being offered?
The policy limits of liability are $1 million and are available to respond for defense
expenses and expenses of a claim and amounts paid to respond for the liability
(damages, judgments and settlements). The $1 million limit is per individual policy.
This limit is not "shared" among individual policies. Defense fees and expenses are
payable outside the limits of liability. The limits of liability are provided on an
annual aggregate basis for all claims against all directors, officers, employees,
volunteers and the organization.

What is the deductible ("retention") amount?
If protected individuals are held personally liable and no indemnification is available
from the organization, the individuals have no deductible or retention amount that
they are responsible for under a covered claim. However, if the organization is held
liability or if it is able to indemnify the individuals named in a suit, the retention
amount is $1,000.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                                54
What does "Claims Made" policy mean?
Association Liability insurance is offered on a "claims made" basis, which means that
claims must be made and reported during the policy period. Individuals should be
certain that adequate reporting mechanisms and oversight responsibilities exist for
this purpose.

Myths Regarding Personal Liability
The following information is offered to help understand exposure related to the
Association Liability coverage. It should be noted that the precise coverage afforded is
subject to the terms, conditions and policy as issued.

Myth
We don't need to purchase insurance to protect our personal assets.

Reality
These are the facts:

       Nonprofit organizations are not immune from costly litigation.
       Nonprofit organizations are being sued more often and from more sources, despite laws in most
        states that limit the liability of nonprofit directors and officers.
       Employment related suits for such things as harassment and wrongful termination are at an all-
        time high, especially since enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1991 and the Americans with
        Disabilities Act of 1992.
       Directors and officers are subject to the duties of diligence, obedience, and loyalty and can be
        sued for negligence in the performance of those duties.
       A claim could threaten the personal assets of directors, officers, and trustees.
       The financial burden of defending a suite against directors, officers, employees or volunteers can
        drain a nonprofit organization's badly needed resources.
       Non profit organizations are often seen as "deep pockets" despite low asset levels.

Myth
I can't be held personally liable for my actions associated with this organization.

Reality
Since 1985, a number of states have enacted statutes which purport to eliminate or
limit certain types of nonprofit directors and officers liability exposure. These statutes
vary greatly and require close examination to determine their true benefit. None of the
statutes create absolute immunity for the directors and officers. For example, none of
the states impact any liability based upon a federal statute or rule. Many of the
statutes expressly do not apply to a breach of the duty of loyalty, which is perhaps the
most frequently asserted claim against nonprofit directors and officers. Even if a
liability limitation applies, the directors and officers may still be subjected to defending
the claim and funding the costs associated with that defense.

Myth
No one will sue me. I am a volunteer for a nonprofit organization. Even if a lawsuit
were to arise, it will be against the Organization, not me.

Reality
History proves that directors, officers, employees and volunteers of nonprofit
organizations are individually sued across the country. Suits alleging discrimination,
wrongful termination, harassment, or false accreditation are not uncommon.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                                               55
Myth
We purchase General Liability Insurance which protects me for any personal liability if
I am individually sued.

Reality
General Liability Insurance can protect the assets of your organization when it is sued
for doing (or not doing) something that results in bodily injury or property damage.
This type of insurance does not provide protection for lawsuits brought against the
directors, officers, employees or volunteers or the organization directly for failure to
properly perform your duties as such.

Myth
My personal homeowners' insurance policy will provide protection for me if I am
personally sued.

Reality
Although a personal homeowner's insurance policy can provide protection for lawsuits
brought against you, most specifically exclude coverage for activities relating to
your voluntary service or serving on the board of an organization. This exclusion
would apply to any act or omission, regardless of its nature or circumstance, involving
a service or duty rendered, promised, owed or implied to be provided because of the
nature of the organization.

Myth
Our organization and its directors, officers, employees and volunteers are already
protected under our national associations' liability program.

Reality
Although some national associations purchase an Association Liability Insurance
Policy, it does not always extend protection to regions, local associations, or member
clubs.

Myth
My organization will pay for any lawsuits brought against the directors, officers,
employees, and volunteers personally, or against the organization itself. It will
indemnify (cover) me if I am personally sued.




Revised 8/30/2010                                                               56
Reality
Every state by statute permits nonprofit corporations to indemnify their directors and
officers against loss incurred as a result of certain types of claims. However, such
indemnification does not provide protection in all instances. For example,
indemnification may not be available to the director and officer for the following
reasons:

    1.   The organization may become insolvent or may not have sufficient resources to pay the losses
         and expenses incurred by the directors and officers.
    2.   Either the applicable law or the corporation's internal indemnification provisions may be modified
         to limit or prohibit the expected indemnification.
    3.   The composition or attitude of the organization's board of directors may change so that the board
         is no longer sympathetic to the prior officer or director and thus does not make the necessary
         determinations to authorize the indemnification.
    4.   As a matter of policy, the organization may deem inappropriate to use contributed funds for such
         indemnification.
    5.   Because of public policy considerations and statutory limitations, some claims may be insurable
         but not indemnifiable.

Association Liability insurance (Directors & Officers Liability insurance) can help
provide protection to the directors, officers, employees, and volunteers for all of these
non-indemnifiable exposures and thus can offer a more comprehensive financial
protection program for these individuals.

Myth
This type of insurance is too expensive, complicated and cumbersome to purchase.

Reality
Purchasing Association Liability insurance to protect directors, officers, employees,
volunteers and the Organization itself couldn't be easier or less expensive. By simply
completing a short electronic application for coverage and processing payment terms,
your Organization can purchase protection for its directors, officers, employees,
volunteers and the Organization itself if named in a suit. If your total gross annual
receipts are less than $1,000,000, the total annual premium for a $1,000,000 limit of
liability (which is shared by all covered parties) is only $625. This amount provides
protection for all directors, officers, employees, volunteers, and the Organization.

Hypothetical Claim Examples
The following information is offered to illustrate possible allegations which could be
made against a non-profit sports club. In order to fully understand the Association
Liability Policy, the policy should be read and reviewed in detail. The precise coverage
afforded is subject to the terms, conditions and policy as issued.

discharge or discrimination based upon the sex, race or age of the
employee/volunteer.

Hypothetical: Allegations are made that the club's Board refuses to appoint a minority

denied his request to volunteer based on rumors that he had previously been
convicted of child molestation charges, which were false.

from a game shortly after the directors learn of his involvement in an armed robbery.
Hypothetical: Member (player) files suit alleging age discrimination alleging a
volunteer/employee wrongfully denied a younger members' request to participate in an
older member age group.

Sexual Harassment Claims
Hypothetical: Member (player), employee, or volunteer files suit alleging the coach
sexually imposed upon her and that the board members were negligent in the
selection of the coach and in failing to supervise his activities.

Credentialing Claims
Hypothetical: Members (players) file suit alleging the Board wrongfully denied the
requested credentialing unfairly and improperly.

Defamation Claims
Hypothetical: A competing club files suit alleging the Board allowed materials to be
distributed that libeled or slandered the club as a result of the communications by the
organization and its directors and officers.

Breach of Duty of Loyalty Claims
Hypothetical: Director, officer, employee or volunteer is sued for allegedly using the
organization as a business conduit to benefit himself.

Breach of Duty of Care Claims
Hypothetical: Directors are sued for furnishing goods, services and facilities to a
person disqualified under applicable law or bylaws from receiving those goods,
services and facilities.

Failure to Supervise Claims
Hypothetical: Directors are sued for failing to conduct routine audits and failing to
supervise the Treasurer once it discovers a dramatic shortfall in its bank account.
