Frequently Asked Questions

While we love pets, most of the venues have pet policies that we must enforce and we ask our players to follow these rules. Venues that are pet friendly will be marked.

We know that part of the fun is having a couple drinks with your friends while hanging out on the sidelines. That said, most of the venues we play at have strict rules regarding the consumption of beer and alcohol that we must enforce and we ask our players to follow these rules. When possible LI-Kick secures the proper permits to allow players to bring their own booze, in these cases those leagues and tournaments will indicate that this is allowed.

We thank you for supporting our bar sponsors and facilities by not attempting to sneak in outside drinks.

Registration for this Tournament is currently closed. Join the waitlist and we'll notify you if space opens up.

Volleyball Rules Violations


The following are some basic volleyball rules for violations.


The result of a violation is a point for the opponent.


  • When serving, stepping on or across the service line as you make contact with the serve
  • Failure to serve the ball over the net successfully
  • Contacting the ball illegally (lifting, carrying, throwing, etc. )
  • Touching the net with any part of the body while the ball is in play. Exception: If the ball is driven into the net with such force that it causes the net to contact an opposing player, no foul will be called, and the ball shall continue to be in play.
  • When attacking a ball coming from the opponent's court, contacting the ball when reaching over the net is a violation if the ball hasn't yet broken the vertical plane of the net.
  • Serving out of order.
  • Back row player blocking (deflecting a ball coming from their opponent), when at the moment of contact the back row player is near the net and has part of his/her body above the top of the net (an illegal block).
  • Back row player attacking a ball inside the front zone (the area inside the 10 foot line), when at the moment of contact the ball is completely above the net (an illegal attack).
  • When any part of a players body crosses the center court line. 


Rotation Rules


  • Every player must rotate in and out consistently.
  • No player may be skipped in rotation.
  • A team may choose to rotate at either the 1 position (server) or 4 position (front left) but the position must remain consistent throughout the entire game. 
  • Gender rules apply to rotating, at least 3 females must be on the court at all times. *exceptions are made for some free agent teams
  • Each player must serve
  • We do not play a libero position, each player must rotate through each position on the court.


Subbing


  • Teammate substitutions are allowed during regular season games if teammates are unable to attend a game. 
  • Substitutes are not limited to league players.
  • Substitutes are not allowed for playoffs and championship games. All players must be rostered to play in playoffs and championship games.
  • At least 3 players from the rostered team must be in attendance and playing for the game to be counted. If there are less than 3 rostered players the games will be forfeited.
