Side out scoring is a term used in volleyball to state that a point can be earned only by the team that is serving. This rule was in place until 1998 when it switched to rally scoring.

What does a time keeper required in basketball but not in volleyball?

Because in basketball there is a time limit for each quarter or each half of the game therefore a timekeeper is required. An example is High School basketball that has four 8 minute quarters. The game ends when the time runs out. In volleyball there is no time limit and the game ends when one team reaches a certain amount of points. In rally scoring, games are played until a team scores 25 points, provided there is at least a two-point margin of victory. With sideout scoring, all games are played to 15, provided there is at least a two-point margin of victory. Some organizations will put a cap on sideout scoring, so that the first team to reach 17 points is the winner of a game, even if the two-point margin is not present.
