Jealous! Thursday I get to shoot in the darkest cave in our league AND the teams are wearing Black and Pink for "Volley for the Cure".....:cry:

I am crossing my fingers for 1/500 at f/2 and ISO 3200. Dark blue paint on side walls, dark wooden bleachers with dark orange, red & yellow above the bleachers. Both end walls are white above 8'-for basketball, I bounced flash off the ends. Don't know what I will have at center court ambient.

A bit off topic: I've noticed that some teams tuck their jersey's into their spandex. Do some coaches, schools, leagues or refs require it? My daughters would not like that a bit, to put it mildly.

No refs require it. Some coaches do, but if they do it is kind of silly. With the nature of the sport, most shirts come flying up and out anyway. Most girls wear tight shirts anyway, so if it is untucked it is often difficult to notice.

Most team coaches will require their players to tuck in their shirts because of the nature of the sport (especially if you're a front row player) and the type of jersey/shirts they wear. Net violations = free points to the opponent. The only exception, and it's subjective depending on the refs, would be hair in a pony tail. Any other article of clothing or body part brushing against the net is a violation.

Not according to the new USAV rules they implemented last year and the international FIVB rules. Do California high schools still play under the old rules?

Well, I stand corrected. So much for getting old and not keeping up with the rules of the game. :lol:

But I don't know if California high schools have adopted the new rules or are still playing under the old ones.

Gotcha, yeah they implemented new rules in to keep the games moving. Essentially, they only call net violations now if you touch the top of the net (the actual tape) AND you interfere with play. So if you go to block and hit both of your hands on the bottom of the net on the way up, there is no call. If you go up to block and touch the top tape but the set ends up going away from you, no call. You can literally run into the net as long as you don't interfere.

Bah, seems kind of lame, but I'm sure it's because I'm old school. I do miss the days where you actually had to earn the point after the serve. I'm not a big fan of rally scoring and still don't get why there's a Libero position. I guess the sports getting too tall so they had to designate a spot for the shorter folks to play.

Great shots! Is locking focus on your subject an issue for you when shooting at f/2? I've shots a few indoor matches with a 7D and 70-200 f/2.8 and lose focus on a lot of shots, especially around the net.

Actually there is different rules for club and school ball (different governing body I guess). The rule changes you are refering to are for club. The girls had to adjust back to the old rules at the beginning of the school year and it was difficult. Lots of net violations.
