people are on one team but it can be played with three, four or six
people. Beach Volleyball is mainly played on the coast, ecspecially in
California. the United States has a professional beach volleyball
circuit called the AVP. There is also a International Volleyball
Federatcion (FIVB), which is an international circuit. Junior leagues
are not being set up too. Games are only played to 21, rally scoring
and there is only three games in a match. Substitues are not allowed.

There are many different levels of college volleyball form junior
colleges to Division One colleges. Most colleges players are recruited
when they are in high school for their ablities. Six players can play
at a time and a liebro is allowed to play back row in multiple
rotations and serve in one rotation. The best three out of five matches
is played to 30 and 15 in the fith game all rally scoring. College
volleyball is played at most colleges with men's and women's teams. A
regular season is played, then the NCAA tournament starts in each
division until a National Champion is crowned.
High School Volleyball would be open to girls or boys (where programs
are available) in grades 9 -12. These are through a High School and
have a certain season when volleyball is played. A regular season is
played then State Tournaments are played usually have a State Champion
in multiple classes. High School volleyball
is behind College and USA in rule changes. A liebro is not allowed in
High School and High School players do not play to 30 points as in
college, they only play to 25, rally scoring. A match is the best three
out of five games. Also six players play at a time. Rules change from
state to state, but the gerneral idea of volleyball is there. High
School volleyball is more of the learning stage before you reach the
higher levels. There are usually many different teams like Varsity,
Junior Varsity, Sophomore, and Freshman, this helps to make it
available to all to get playing time.
USA Volleyball is usually played by Juniors. Players still in High
School looking for more playing time. The levels go by age starting
around the age of 12 and under. They go to adult divisions. The USA
season goes from the end of the High School season to the start of the
High School season. The rules are a mix of High School and College
rules. A liebro is allowed but not to serve. Most the time games are
played to 25, rally scoring, best 3 out of 5. USA is usually more
selective teams than a High School team would be. Tournaments are on
weekends and a National Championship is in the summer.
