USA Volleyball THEORETICAL EXAM – Form D (Lizama, Joe)

USA Volleyball (USAV) develops exams that are specific to the USAV rules code. The Form D exam is utilized only by USA Volleyball for 14 and under junior players for training and educational purposes. This is the USAV Form D examination for 14 and under junior players.

Exam Instructions and Information: Read each question completely and submit your answer to each question using the current rules from the USA Volleyball Rule Book. Any USAV outlined boxes in the rule book take priority over the same FIVB rule (non-outlined), and the USAV rule should be used when answering each question. Important referee techniques and points of emphasis are also included in the rule book under the “Officiating Techniques, Points of Emphasis & Match Procedures” section starting on page 119, the “Basic Match Procedures for Referees” section starting on page 127, and both sections can be used in these examination questions, as well as the USAV Indoor Casebook.

The following points are important unless other conditions are noted:

  • No sanctions (team or individual) have been assessed other than those specifically described in the question.
  • Requests for interruptions (timeouts, substitutions) or lineup checks have not been acknowledged (whistled) by the referees.
  • Unless otherwise noted, the referees’ signal sequence is not relevant when answering the question.
