We learned about the breaks that happen during a volleyball game. Let's finish the chapter by talking a bit more about timeouts. We also learned that Volleyball does not have a game clock, so there is no halftime. In this tutorial, we're going to learn about when players have breaks during the game.
During the game, coaches are allowed to request breaks called Timeouts. We'll learn more about how many and what kind of timeouts there are in volleyball in Chapter 2.4: Volleyball Timeouts.
In between sets, teams are allowed three minutes to switch sides and prepare for the next one, this is called a game interval.
If a player gets hurt during the game, the referee stops the game until the player is helped.
Each team is allowed two timeouts that are thirty seconds long. Coaches and players can call timeouts during the game.
A technical timeout is a minute long timeout called by a referee. It is typically called when the leading team reaches eight and sixteen points during each set.
