Volleyball Officiating: Overlapping and Ball Handling.
Davis, Kathryn L.
In volleyball officiating, two areas of concern are overlapping and ball-handling calls. Overlapping involves the illegal positioning of players during the contact of the serve by the server. It is imperative that officials be able to recognize overlapping violations in order also to recognize back line player violations. Consistency in ball handling is a vital concern with both officials and coaches in volleyball. Volleyball is one of the only sports to have a judgment that is so subjective. The rule is concerned with the length of contact with the ball, not the body position or the technique. In the l990s, these two areas of officiating will impact officials the most. Helpful hints for officials calling out-of-position and back row attack/block are offered, as well as key points for use in making judgments. (Author/LL)
