Concord Sand Volleyball Rules


  • Coed’s is considered any combination of 4, 5 or 6 people with no more than 3 guys on the court at one time plus you must have at least 2 girls, however if a team only has 1 girl the opposing team has the option of taking a forfeit or letting the team play with just 1 girl. If the forfeit option is taken, it must be done before the first game begins & will be for all 3 games. It is the team's responsibility to tell the ref that they would like to take a forfeit before play begins. The ref will assume the teams are okay with playing against a team with only 1 girl, unless the opposing team requests a forfeit.
