PROTEST & PROCEDURES
-Protests within BGC-CC Sports Leagues are allowed to correct the misinterpretation of the rules, the misinterpretation and application of penalties, and/or player eligibility,
THE JUDGMENT OF AN OFFICIAL IS NOT PROTESTABLE
. A written protest is required within 24 hours to the BGC-CC Club Director via email.
Illegal Hit: Occurs when the ball VISIBLY comes to rest or has prolonged contact with a player during contact.
Double Hit: Occurs when a player illegally contacts the ball twice in succession. It can be either 2 attempts in succession or the ball rebounding from one part of the body to one or more other parts on a single attempt to play the ball.
Quick Set: Approximately 1 foot above the net right next to the setter.
Low Set: Set 2 to 3 feet above the net, either in front or behind the setter.
Normal Outside Set: Set directed toward the sideline 8 to 15 feet above the net.
Shoot Set: The set will travel quickly about 1 to 3 feet above the net.
Dump: This skill is performed with the shoulders perpendicular to the net. Usually, the setter is trying to be deceptive by sending the ball across the net on the second hit instead of setting to the attacker for a third hit. It usually is kept very low so that after reacting to the surprise maneuver, little time will be left for the opponents to recover and make a strong offensive play.
Jump Set: This skill is performed with the setter in the air. Depending on how it is used, it can be for the purpose of deception, for a "quick" set, for maneuvering a bad pass into a useful set (usually too close to the net), or it can be poor technique.
Spike: This may be performed open or close-handed. The hand must contact the ball rapidly enough so the ball is hit, not thrown. A ball spiked with the top of the open hand (fingers) may be a miss hit rather than an illegal hit.
Block: This is a rebounding skill. Make sure the blocker does not carry or have prolonged contact with the ball. Blocking techniques may involve use of wrist action. There is no forward motion of the arm in a one-hand block.
Forearm Pass: This is a passing skill. It can be performed with arms together with hands clasped, hands separated with simultaneous contact, or with one hand or arm.
Receiving with the Overhead Pass: Look carefully at a hard spiked or served ball received and converted by an overhead pass. This pass is very difficult and requires great strength on the part of the receiver to overcome that forceful momentum and turn it into a quick snappy pass. A held ball may result.
