Excellent! Thanks for the clarifications and the first-hand
So who are the folks involved with the USAV web project? In other
words, what cages would one rattle to make the case for having rules
on the web? Where are the decisions being made?
As I've stated before, having the USAV provide rules on the web would
do some great things:
1. Increase revenue via membership, rulebook, casebook, and other
USAV publication sales.
On the web, the business model is: Give something away for free
(in this case rules text); attract loads of traffic to the web
site; market the handy pocket-sized printed rulebook, casebook,
officiating guide, officials guide, scoresheets, USAV
membership; revenue increases more than you ever thought
2. Increase awareness of USAV as _the_ national governing body for
the sport of volleyball in the USA.
3. Encourage understanding of and participation in the sport by
providing a meaningful rules reference on-line.
