Any attack that lands for a point.
Also, award a KILL when:
ATTACK ATTEMPTAny overhead contact of the ball designed to score
ATTACK ERRORAny overhead contact of the ball that…
- is hit out of bounds
- is hit into the net leading to a four-hit violation
- hits the antenns
- is blocked down by the opposition on the same side of the attacker leading to a point
- makes a centerline violation
- is called for illegal contact
ATTACK PERCENTAGEKills minus errors, divided by total attacks
- 10 kills – 2 errors/16 total attacks = 8/16 = .500
ASSISTAwarded to the player who passes the ball to a teammate who attacks the ball for a kill
- an assist generally is the second contact in a play sequence, followed immediately by a kill on the third contact
- an assist can be awarded off a dig (first c0ntact), provided the attack comes on the second contact
SERVICE ACEAwarded when…
- a serve lands untouched on the opponent’s side
- the receiving team is overlapped or out of rotation
- if the passer is whistled for a reception error
- the serve is passed, but cannot be kept in play
SERVICE ERRORAwarded when…
- the server foot faults
- the serve dosen’t advance past the net, is out of bounds, or hits antenna
- the server is out of rotation (service error is charged to the person who should have served)
- Note: A ball that hits the net but continues over to the opponent’s side and remains in bounds is not a service error (2001 rule change)
RECEPTION ATTEMPTAwarded when…
- A Team B player attempts to receive Team A players’s serve.
RECEPTION ERRORAwarded when…
- the serve hits the floor near a player
- the player passes the ball, but it can’t be kept in play
- player is called for a lift
- Note: For every service ace, there must be a corresponding reception error. When a service ace falls between two players and the scorer cannot judge fault, a Team Recereption error is recorded. Team Reception errors also occur when the receiving team is out of rotation.
- a serve lands keepsa bona fide attack in play with a pass
- A dig is only awarded off an attack attempt from an opposing team
- Thus, a dig is NOT awarded when Team A continues a play off a Team B block attempt as it is not an attempt
- A dig is NOT awarded on a serve attempt, as this is a serve reception
BLOCKSAwarded when a player blocks the ball to the opposition’s court leading directly to a point without a successful dig
- SOLO – when only one blocker is up
A block solo and block assist cannot be recorded on the same play. During the same rally, only one team block can be awarded.
A block (solo or assisted) is not credited if the opposing team successfully digs the block attempt.
TEAM BLOCKSTeam blocks are calculated by adding the total number of block solos and adding to half the total of block assists.
Example: Blocks Solos – 4, Block Assists 12 (TEAM BLOCKS = 4 + (12/12) = 10)
BLOCKING ERRORAwarded when…
- blocker is in the net or steps over the center line
- back row blocker
- blocker is called for reaching over the net
A blocking error is not given for poor technique. In general, a blocking error only is given after a referee’s call. Also, a kill is awarded to the opposing attacker on a blocking error if an attack was occurring at the time of the block error.
OTHER HINTS- every service sce must have a corresponding reception error.
- Conversly, every reception error must have a service ace.
- Every assist must have a corresponding kill.
- Overpasses are not reception errors.
Since blocks must come off an opponent’s attack attempt, Team B’s offensive attack from Team A’s overpass should be recorded as am attack (kill if Team B’s execution leads directly to a point). This situation appears often as a block or directional attack at the net. However, blocks can only be awarded on an opponent’s attack, not overpass.
