3.6 Time-Outs


In volleyball, there is no medical-time-out like in beach volleyball, only recovery time (see injuries) may be granted.


Team time-outs can be requested by the team's coach as long as the ball is out of play and the service has not been authorized yet. If a time-out is requested at the same time or after the authorization of the service, an improper request has to be recorded.

Each team is entitled to two time-outs per set. The duration of each team time-out is 30 seconds.
