Under 54 - 8 - 1
the Virginia High School League has modified its contest limitations for volleyball. Each school has the choice of playing the following three scenarios 20 dual matches; or 18 dual matches and 1 invitational tournament; or 16 dual matches and 2 invitational tournaments.
** Invitational tournaments may be conducted over no more than two consecutive days.
** Teams participating in invitational tournaments may play a maximum of 15 sets per tournament.
Given the changes in contest limitations we will be adjusting the format to maximize the number of sets each team will be allowed to compete. In the first round of the tournament we will have 4 pools of four in each division. In pool play each team will play each team three 25-point rally scoring sets for a total of 9 sets. In the second round teams will be grouped in bracket play according to their finish in the first round. All 1st place team in one bracket, all seconds in another bracket, all thirds in one bracket, and all fourths in one bracket. Bracket play matches will be the best of three rally scoring games to 25. If a deciding game is necessary, it will be a 15 point set. All teams will be guaranteed two matches in bracket play. Teams will play between 4 and 6 sets. Each team will play between 13 and 15 sets total. Virginia High School League (VHSL) and National
High School Federation (NFHS) rules apply.
