6.2 Positional faults

It is the second referee's duty to check on the positions of the receiving team.

Important

The feet of the players are relevant for determining whether there is a positional fault or not. The players have to be lined up correctly at the service hit.

Annotation

Knowing who is the setter and the opposite hitter helps to determine whether there is a positional fault or not (e.g. setter 3). Between the two players, two other players must line up in the rotation.



In the following chapter, the setter's positions and typically occurring position faults are explained:

Setter on position 1

Focus of the second referee:
Position 4 has to be closer to the center line than positon 5. Make sure to have an eye on the setter, who might be running early and end up closer to the center line than position 2 at the service.


Setter on position 6

Focus of the second referee:
The setter on position 6 has to be "between" positions 1 and 5 and further away from the net than position 3.


Setter on position 5

Focus of the second referee:
Make sure the setter on position 5 is further away from the center line than position 4 and, at least with one part of the foot, closer to the left side line than position 6. In addition, position 3 has to be closer to the center line than position 6.


Setter on position 4

Focus of the second referee:
Focus on the setter, who might be running early and, therefore, make position 3 closer to the left side line than position 4. Sometimes the opposite hitter, position 1, lines up incorrectly, somewhere between position 5 and 6.



Setter on position 3

Focus of the second referee:
The opposite hitter on position 6 has to be "between" the players on position 5 and 1. The player on positon 2 has to be closer to the center line than position 1.


Setter on position 2

Focus of the second referee:
The player on position 4 has to be closer to the left side line than position 3. Position 3 has to be closer to the center line than position 6.
