RALLY SCORING: All matches shall be best three-of-five games. Games shall be played to 25 points (no cap), and the fifth and deciding game shall be played to 15 points (no cap). The let serve shall be allowed, and play shall continue provided net contact is entirely within the net antennas. Each team shall be allowed two time-outs per game, with a total of 10 time-outs if five games are played. The players want a faster-paced game, and rally scoring does that, Doyle said. Doyle said that the issues of games per match and scoring caps on games will be reviewed by the committee at the end of the 2003-04 season. Along with rally scoring, the Volleyball Rules Committee also approved several other rules changes, including Rule 9-4-8b, which addresses multiple contacts by one player. The new rule states that multiple contacts are permitted only on any first team hit, whether or not the ball is touched by the block, and it deletes the line that states, provided there is no finger action. The wording of this rule was changed because it allowed for multiple interpretations and inconsistent application, according to Doyle. Rule 9-5-4 also underwent revisions. It adds that if the flight of the ball is toward the opponents court and not toward a teammate and is legally touched by an opponent above the net, the action is a back-row player foul. If the ball is hit back in to a back-row player, it is ruled as the teams first foul. These additions remove the need for officials to judge the intent of the back-row player by judging the direction of the ball hit, Doyle said. Three changes were made to Rule 1-4 regarding the pre-match conference and coin toss. In order to encourage good sportsmanship, the home team should select its team bench upon entering the facility, and the visiting captain should call the coin toss. If necessary, prior to the deciding game of a match, the home captain should call the toss. Predetermining who calls the toss should keep the flow and order of all matches consistent, according to Doyle. Rule 9-3-3 divided one subheading into two in order to clarify when the ball is dead. Rule 9-3-3 l now states that a live ball becomes dead when an officials whistle sounds, and Rule 9-3-3 m dictates that a live ball becomes dead when a timers audio signal interrupts play. Revisions were also made to Rule 11-2-4 regarding administration of consistent time-outs. A time-out can last for a maximum of 60 seconds, but play can recommence if both teams are ready for play prior to the end of the 60 seconds. To create a more consistent order between officials and players, Rule 10-2-6b was rewritten to state that it is improper when a substitute enters or a player leaves the court before the umpire directs them to do so with a sweeping open-palm hand gesture. The uniform rule, Rule 4, underwent several changes as well. Players cannot wear jewelry during pre-match warm-up or competition, and they must wear uniforms as the manufacturers intended. Additionally, the number on the front of the uniform should be centered no more than two inches below the neckline opening or no more than two inches below the bottom edge of the neckline ribbing on the uniform top.
