RULES & RESPONSIBILITIES
OUR PLAYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BEING RESPECTFUL AND INFORMED PARTICIPANTS AT TOURNAMENTS. THIS MEANS:
Show up on time: Know your tournaments start time and be prepared that is may go all day. Be prepared to show up an hour prior to start to check in and warm up, and to stay as long as you remain a part of the tournament. This includes your refereeing responsibilities.
Know the rules: You can review the rule book by clicking the tab below and reviewing the modifications to the USAV rules below that tab. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask a Tournament Director, the TXBVA office, or even a more experienced player! The best way to learn the rules is to get out and play. We’ve all got to learn some time, so please be thoughtful teachers and gracious students.
Play fair & don’t forget to ref: We all want to win! Play hard, but play fair to preserve the integrity game. You must fulfill your duty to ref - this can include *after* your final loss in playoffs. Remember that the refs are not professionals but players doing their best.
Respect all TXBVA players, staff, and spectators: We are a great group of athletic, competitive, beach-loving people with a passion for beach volleyball and a wide range of skill levels and experience. Please be respectful of everyone in our community.
