Does anybody know why on a volleyball team, one player has a different color jersey?

yea, they are a libero. A few years ago this position was added to the team as a defensive specialist. They wear a different color shirt & are allowed to sub in for any of the 6 players on the court as long as they are in the back row. In the past the libero's are not allowed to serve but that is suppose to change I beleive in 09.

Prior to this position a person was only allowed to sub for 1 person & a team would get 12 subs per game. Teams still are allowed the 12 subs & the libero does not count against this.

I played this position for a few years since I screwed up my shoulder... now back to being a outside hitter :)

The Libero position was added 10 years ago. Libero's are allowed to serve in the High School and Womens NCAA level. This is somewhat abnormal because International play is usually the first to recieve these types of rule changes. Libero's are also not allowed to overhand set an attacker from in front of the 3m/10ft line. This rule was to keep from having the libero become a universal setter instead of a universal deffensive player.

I used to play a LOT. Maybe 10 hours every week in two leagues and pick up games at the local rec centers. Indoors mainly, but some grass and sand. If I can, I play every Saturday morning at South Mission on the sand now. Sand for me is a little tough as it negates what I do well mostly, and since I am not tall, I lose my leap...but then I am thinking I don't jump as high as I used to 15 years ago.

If does not require a helmet at some point in the game....It is not a sport
The way I play, should require a helmet. I have far more injuries from volleyball than from racing cars. :) Screwed up wrist from hitting a brick wall, ligament damage in the ankle from someone stepping across the net, torn rotator cuff (this is still bad) in the right shoulder, broke the pole that holds up the net when I ran into it, cut my neck on the guy wires when I hit them....

hahaha rotfl oh man, you're a mess Randy. All that for the love of the game, that's awesome. We started a new organization earlier this year, mostly volleyball but will have tennis, golf and soccer later, check out the site Northwest Asian Sports

I have a hard time playing less than 100%. I enjoy full contact Tennis. Not many people play and end up with bloody knees after every game. :)

I used to play nationally before my shoulder went kaput.
The only time I had bloody knees was when I slipped on loose clay. Those things HURT, they kill your shoes too, one match and they're done.

Love Grass courts, thats where I started playing and THE most fastest surface :drool:

I play. Mostly beach now but would love to find an indoor league. I like indoor much better. Anyone know of a league in the LA area? I think Volleyball gets a bad rep because people are used to the kind of volleyball played at picnics with a bunch of people that suck. If you are a good player and play with other good players volleyball can be and is a very intense sport.

The only sports that need a helmet have a engine of some kind :eek:. Those games where they do actually wear helmets are not true sports..... :panic:

I play USAV ball & we travel around through a few state area, lot of fun. 20 years ago I couldn't jump & I still cant but it's still a lot of fun. I play sand doubles (coed or mens) & indoor 6's.

It was rumored this last season that libero's were suppose to be able to serve but they stated it was pushed back a year or so. No clue if that will ever make it to the national level.....

A few years ago I did knock a guy out unconscious & gave him a bloody nose when I spiked the ball & hit him square in the face. The only other injury or I guess major injury I inflicted on someone is I spiked the ball & fractured their arm. Those incedents happend 15 or so years ago though...

Yep. I am a volleyball snob. What is played at company picnics, is not volleyball. Plus much more likely to get hurt when you don't know who is supposed to play which ball.

You can probably google the leagues and find the drop in indoor games. I know in San Diego, there are games everyday during the day, normally from 11:00am until 2:30pm, and then league play at night.

There are lots of indoor leagues/tournanets in the LA area. mostly its on the Westside. they have 3 different types of games. same sex(men's or women's), Co-ed and, Reverse Co-ed. There arent many same sex leagues but there are a few Co-ed and Reverse Co-ed. they do travel aprox. they have tournamneta at least once a month with same sex, Co-ed and, Reverse pools. Also 4 times a year they have "away" tournamnets. 2 times to Las Vegas, once to Santa Maria and once to San Diego/Poway. I try to play as often as I can but with work, the KONI Challenge schedule and NASA and local events, it gets tough. westsidevolleyball.com
