Volleyball Line Judges Required to Use Flags


Good line judges are important to a volleyball match. Line judges are officials as they are called upon to assist with making many decisions during the course of a volleyball match.

Therefore, it is the host’s school responsibility to select, instruct, and properly train line judges.  The NSAA encourages all line judges to view the following training video each year.  Line judges shall also be provided with proper equipment; therefore, beginning this season volleyball line judges will be required to use flags.  The flags shall be red and shall be approximately 12 inches by 12 inches to 16 inches by 16 inches.  In addition, line judges should refrain from wearing anything team specific.  Rather it is preferred that line judges wear a white shirt and black pants.
