The National Federation Rules in general shall govern play for females and males on the same team with the following exceptions:1. Mixed-Six volleyball is intended to be played with 3 males and 3 females on the court at all times. The serving order for positions on the floor shall alternate. If a male position is the first server, the positions shall be male, female, male, female, male, female. If a female position is the first server, the positions shall be female, male, female, male, female, male.a) In the event that 3 male players are not available (not on the roster, not at the playing site, not academi- cally eligible, or not able to play because of injury or illness), then a female may fill a male position. A female shall never replace an available male player because of skill level or performance.b) A male may never fill a female position.c) No more than 3 males may be on the court at anytime.d) There must be at least 1 male on the court to begin a match.2. The height of the net for mixed-six play shall be 2.43 meters (7’ 11-5/8”).3. When the ball is played more than once by a team, at least one of the contacts shall be made by a female play- er. Contact of the ball during blocking shall not constitute a play on the ball under this rule. There is no requirement for a male player to contact the ball, regardless of the number of plays by a team.4. Uniforms of players shall be identical within the following provisions:
a. All females shall be attired in identical jerseys and shorts or one-piece uniform.
b. All males shall be attired in identical jerseys and shorts or one-piece uniform.5. When only one male player position is in the front row at service, one male back-row player position may be forward of the attack line for the purpose of blocking. The remaining back-row male player must be behind the attack line until the ball has been contacted by the block or has been hit in such a manner that no block is possible. If a male back-row player is not forward of the attack line for the purpose of blocking, there is no restriction on both back-row male players being forward of the attack line.
a. Male back-row players when playing the ball in other than blocking actions shall be governed by provisions of the National Federation Rule 9, Section 5,
Art 5b which states:
“a back-row player shall not attack a ball which is completely above the height of the net while positioned:
1) On or in front of the attack line or its out-of-bounds extension.
2) In the air, having left the floor on or in front of the attack line or its out-of-bounds extension.
b. No female back-row player may participate in a block.6. The Libero Player will not be used in Mixed Six matches.
