Our hard-bellied sense of rugged individualism, I suppose. It's a
pain in the butt for the officials, for sure.
As I understand it, USAV has to be different from FIVB, largely
because of added safety-related rules due to our rather litigious
society. With this year's rule changes, we're closing the small gap
between us and the FIVB quite a bit.
NAGWS rules for women's collegiate play are different because....the
NAGWS coaches want to have their own set of rules? I dunno. Wally,
NHFHSA rules used by the high schools are different because....NHFHSA
deals with all sports, and would like to have their own volleyball
rulebook to make a complete set? I dunno.
