Yeah, it's a tad ambiguous. To recap, the official rules change
summary cited in the link above said:
These rule changes will be in effect for the 1999-2000 season of
USA Volleyball competition, commencing November 1, 1999. However,
the entire FIVB rule set, with some safety modifications, will be
in effect for the US Open Tournaments at the 1999 USA Volleyball
Open Championships in San Jose, Calif., May 31-June 3.
Rule 11.3 is amended to reflect the use of the Libero Defensive
Player in the United States Rules. These rules will be in effect
for the 1999 USA Volleyball Open Championships, Open Division and,
beginning November 1999, for any USA Volleyball Open competition.
Any team participating in Open Competition has the option to
register a Libero player on its roster. Regular substitutions
remain limited to six team subs and one individual entry per
As I read it (and have been led to belive), the Libero player will be
used in all divisions in the "1999-2000 season of USA Volleyball
competition, commencing November 1, 1999." You won't see a Libero in
use at the national championships May31-June3 1999 EXCEPT in the open
division (because current FIVB rules with safety modifications will be
used there for the open division).
