MIVA Protocol for Automatic 3 Sets
Updated Thursday, January 27, 2017.
In a match where teams are scheduled to automatically play 3 sets, the following protocol will be used. The teams will play all three sets to 25, regardless of whether a team wins the first two sets. Should one team win the first two sets of the match, that team has won the match, but teams will still play the 3rd set. Matches consisting of 3 sets will be used when scheduling parameters do not allow for all competing teams to be scheduled for the same number of matches. When playing the 3rd set, there will be a coin flip between sets two and three to determine side, serve and receive, and teams will switch sides at 13.
