General League Rules



Everyone that visits Viva Beach must sign a waiver. Waivers are provided on our site and prior to signing up.

In order to participate in a league, each player must sign a waiver. Players must agree to the waiver electronically when they register, or waivers can be downloaded here and turned in at Wooly’s if necessary. Captains are responsible to ensure all players that play on their team are registered to play and have signed the waiver prior to the first day of play. Players not present the first week of play will still be required to sign a waiver before participating.

There is a maximum number of players allowed on a beach volleyball team roster, 4s are allowed 6 players on their roster, 3s are allowed to have 4 players on their roster and 2s are not allowed to have additional players on their roster. 


All players must be registered and must sign a waiver to be able to participate. Only players that have registered and signed the waiver will be allowed to participate. Players may be added after the registration deadline. Teams have up until the 3rd week of the season to make any adjustments to the roster. After the 3rd week of the season, rosters are fixed and cannot be adjusted.


Viva Beach expects all participants to play with the highest level of sportsmanship. Rude or demeaning behavior to staff, referees , the opposing team, and/or your own team members will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Unsportsmanlike behavior may result in that player being ejected from the game. An ejection may result in further suspension from participation in current and/or future events at Viva Beach.  An ejected player is required to leave the premises immediately. Refusal to leave the premises may result in a team forfeit and/or suspension. Any disputes or complaints regarding the referee’s handling of a game or ejection will be addressed and handled by Viva Beach staff.  On the day of the incident, the referee’s decision will be considered final and disputes will not be addressed by the league.

If a team is going to forfeit they need to e-mail or text 512-690-6981 by 8am the day of the game. This will allow notifications to reach the opposing team’s members and will allow the opposing captain to inform the team of the forfeit.

In the event of inclement weather, Viva Beach will make every reasonable attempt to make-up all scheduled games. In the event of multiple cancellations, Viva Beach reserves the right to shorten the regular season and/or the play-off schedule if there is one (and the number of teams that make the play-offs) if inclement weather dictates such action. If necessary, make-up games may be scheduled on days other than the regularly scheduled days of the league. Neither refunds nor pro-rated refunds will be given if the season is shortened due to inclement weather or by actions taken by Viva Beach. Viva Beach will address every situation uniquely and will always keep the best interest of our players in mind.


There will be a 5 minute grace period for all games. If a team does not possess the minimum amount of players to start (4s league - minimum 2 players) once the grace period has expired, the opposing team will receive a win for the first game of the match. If the team does not possess the minimum number of players by the beginning of the second game (or 15 minutes past game time, whichever comes first), a forfeit will be assessed. Teams may continue to finish out the games but the opposing team will still receive the match win.

4s Leagues:  Teams that are short players do not lose serves, but must still rotate serves between players. 


Teams will rock, paper, scissors to determine serve, side or receive. 


All games will be played using rally scoring where points will be awarded regardless of which team is serving. Each match will consist of the best of 3 games. The first 2 games will be played to 21 points and the third game will be played to 15 points. Play continues until a two point advantage is reached. The team that wins two games first shall be declared the winner. Teams may play a third consolation game if a winner has already been declared and time permits.


Each team is allowed 1 – 60 second timeout per game. Timeouts do not carry over.


4s Leagues: There is no requirement for a female to hit the ball at any time.


Beach doubles rules will be used for 4s except for the following:
- A block does NOT count as a touch.

See BEACH RULES for a complete list of rules. 


Playoff seeding will be determined by the best overall records. In the event that 2 teams are tied with the same record, head-to-head matchups will determine higher seeding whenever possible. When head-to-head matchups cannot clearly determine a higher seed, or when 3 or more teams are tied, tiebreakers will be determined in the following order:
(1) head-to-head matchups (for 2 way ties), (2) highest team point differentials for the season & (3) coin flip.
