Volleyball Penalty Cards

During a volleyball game, things can get intense. Sometimes players get penalized for misconduct, including being rude, aggressive, or offensive.

The punishment for misconduct is as follows:

  1. A verbal warning
  2. A yellow card
  3. A red card
  4. Expulsion
  5. Disqualification

Yellow Card

The yellow card serves as a warning for a player or coach. Play will stop, but there is no penalty.

Red Card

Unsportsmanlike conduct will be penalized if a player or coach repeats misconduct following a yellow card warning. The referee will hold up a red card when this happens.
