Beach Rules

Beach is very unique. Below are a few rules.
-The team that is scoring the game is also the team that is officiating the game. Players
from other teams, the teams playing, coaches or parents cannot call the game or coach
from the sidelines.
-Spectators or coaches may yell things like; Good job, move your feet, talk, you’ve got this but they cannot give instructions such as how to hit, when to pass, who to serve and etc.
-Over hand setting is allowed but it is extremely hard in the sand. If a player is not
completely squared up (body facing) where the ball is going to go, then it is considered a double. We are encouraging players to get really good at forearm setting the ball.
-Open hand receiving is not allowed. Hands must be together.
-A hard-driven hit may be taken with open hands
-Each team has two-time outs to use during a set, as well as, a technical time out. Only
players can call their own time outs. Coaches and parents cannot.

Apex Sand Box
We love having families at the Apex Sand Box for FNL. If young children come with you please be sure to keep a close eye on them.
-We recommend children do not play on the back side of the Apex out of sight.
-We recommend children are closely watched while playing on the dirt and sand
mounds.
-We ask that people (including children) do not linger in Premier West. Please use
the restroom and return to the sand box.
-Please help us with trash by placing your trash in the trash cans around the sand box.
