About Volleyball

The most popular indoor intramural sport at UNMC, Volleyball draws consistently draws around 20 teams each season. Games are played 6v6 (3 men + 3 women) and are scheduled at 45-minute intervals. They are played best 2 out of 3 sets. The first 2 sets are played to 25 points and the third set is played to 15 points in the regular season and 25 points in the playoffs.

Since the league is Co-Rec, teams may not play with more than 3 men on the court. A minimum of 4 players (at least 1 woman) must be present to start/finish a match. There will be an official present for all games. The official will keep score. 

Season Format

The Spring 2020 season will last 8 weeks. The first 6 weeks of the season will be the "regular season" phase and the final 2 weeks will be the "postseason" phase, or playoffs. The regular season phase will be composed of 5 weeks of round-robin play + 1 guaranteed BYE week. A team's results during the regular season will determine seeding for the postseason playoffs, a single-elimination tournament. The team that wins the postseason tournament will be awarded the intramural championship t-shirts on the final night of the tournament. 


Competitive Divisions

In order to keep leagues competitive while still being inclusive of players at all different skill and ability levels, several leagues are split into more than one division. Teams will only play other teams that elect to play in the same division. The divisions are described below.

Elite (Division 1) - The Elite division is the most competitive division for intramural leagues at UNMC. Participants in this division generally have a wealth of experience in the sport they play and are looking to play other highly experienced players.

Intermediate (Division 2) - The Intermediate division is new for 2020! As the name suggests, the level of competition falls between the Elite and Recreational divisions. The Intermediate division is ideal for participants who aren't experts at their sport but desire a quicker, more competitive pace than the Recreational division.

Recreational (Division 3) - The Recreational division is the most casual level of intramural leagues at UNMC. Teams in the Recreational division are generally composed of participants who are new to the sport and/or primarily interested in playing for fun/leisure.
