Fall practice may begin as early as the second Thursday preceding Labor Day. No team may have more than 10 single practice sessions (i.e., "double sessions" count as two single practice sessions), through and including the Friday prior to Labor Day.
The Spring season must not begin before the third Monday in March. The Spring season must end with the completion of the regular varsity season or, for qualified varsity teams or individuals, upon completion of their participation in MIAA tournaments.
Proposed Alignments 2017-18 through 2020-2021: Girls Boys
Fall 2017 - Effective with the fall 2017 MIAA Girls Volleyball Tournament, the official game ball will be the Spalding VB5 red/white/blue volleyball. 10/04/11 Please accept this as clarification for the time between the conclusion of a JV volleyball match and the start of a varsity match. Apparently some volleyball game officials are under the impression that MIAA Rule 81.4 applies (Warm-up time will be 15 minutes. There is no relationship with the intent of this rule and the time between a junior varsity and varsity match). This rule simply states that (Warm-up time will be 15 minutes). Varsity matches should not start before the posted time unless the home school contest manager requests an earlier start. Tony Romano - MIAA
09/20/11 The Volleyball Committee voted that the results of an "excluded" girls and boys match would be utilized under Seeding step 1, head to head results.
