League play for the middle schools will be based on the Area 1 (small and large) and Area 2 (small and large) designations listed by the TMSAA. The winners of the Small and Large Divisions will qualify for the West Tennessee Sectional Tournament. All matches shall be best two out of three games using rally scoring (point scored on each serve). Games shall be played to 25 points with no cap (no cap means a team must score a minimum of 25 points and be ahead by at least two points to win a game). Should a match go three games, the third game shall be played to 15 points with no cap.
When your school is hosting a match, it is the responsibility of the home school to provide safe and adequate equipment for the match. If the home school is unable to provide safe equipment, it is their responsibility to secure another site. The school must notify the SCIAA office, assigning agent, and the other teams of the changes within a 24-hour period.
REGULAR SEASON/ TOURNAMENT GAMES
The TMSAA Sports Calendar limits the number of regular season contests in girls middle school volleyball to (20) twenty matches. Tournaments shall count as (2) two games, which means that each SCIAA school participating in this year’s volleyball season can actually play (18) eighteen regular season matches. The SCIAA County Championship play-off and game will count for two.
If your school is not scheduled to play during a particular week you may contact other teams not playing on the same date and schedule a non-league match to complete your schedule. Dates and times for any non-league games scheduled should be emailed to me so they can be added to your team’s master schedule.
Scoring will be set up for tournament style play with the best 2 out of 3 matches. The first two matches will be played to 25 points with no cap and the 3rd game will be played to 15 points with no caps.
Every team now has a login to enter their scores on LeagueMinder. Scores must be reported after every game.
