Lifts, throws and net violations will be called, but setters may be given some leeway.

 

ADVANCED COED

For skilled players who are a bit below ‘Power’ level.
“Bump, Set, Spike” is the goal, and you have a good understanding of defensive positioning. You’re comfortable being on the court with people who spike and serve hard.
Dedicated setters, double blocks are common at this level.

 

POWER COED
