South Carolina residents attending college or serving in the military in another state are also eligible to compete.

Rules
Whenever applicable, we will use the USAV rules of play, unless noted below.
1. There will be no gender hit rule in effect.
2. Coed 3’s & 4’s will have a roster max of 5. A minimum of one female must be on the court, at all times, in either division.
3. There will be no player rotation, other than for service order, observed in the tournament.
4. Substitutions should be made on dead balls and to the service position. There will be no limit.
5. Each team will have one .30 sec timeout per set during Elimination matches only. No timeouts will be awarded during Round – Robin matches.
6. A “ghost rule” will be in effect for teams not able to field complete rosters. For instance, a team fielding fewer than designated number of players will “side-out” during the serve of the sixth position they are not fielding. A rally point will be awarded to the other team during this “side-out”.
7. Players may go completely under the net to play the ball, but may not interfere with an opposing player.
8. Rally scoring will be observed for all matches.

Round – Robin matches will be 2 sets to 15 (with a cap of 17). This will apply to indoor/beach.
Matches will be scored as follows: 3 points for a win (2-0), 1 point for a tie (1-1), 0 points for a loss, 1 point for a loss when scoring 10+ points.
If teams are tied at the end of the Round – Robin, we will look at overall points given up for our Tie-breaker.
Top overall points will be our #1 seed going into the Elimination Round.

Elimination matches will be best 2/3 sets to 21 (with a cap of 25). If a third set is played, it will be to 15 (with a cap of 17). Teams will switch sides of the court at 8 points.
