Corporate Cup at the YMCA of Pueblo is a community competition between local organizations and businesses, promoting fitness, health, and wellness in the workplace.

The purpose of Corporate Cup is to promote healthy lifestyles in our community. Teams from participating organizations compete in several events.

Training Pass

To properly prepare for participation, regular activity should be conducted that relates to the events in which a person will participate . To facilitate this the YMCA has the following training pass program for Corporate Cup registrants.
Employees can register at the YMCA for the training pass program by showing a company ID card or check stub. Once employment has been verified, employees need to sign in at the Welcome Desk every time they visit the facility. 
Training Passes cannot be used during prime YMCA Membership hours. (Weekdays 5:00p.m.-7:00p.m.)
Available times:  Weekdays: 5:00a.m.-5:00p.m.and 7:00p.m.-9:00p.m.; Saturday: 7:00a.m.-5:00p.m.; Sunday: 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

All participants must show Training Pass and sign in at each visit.

GENERAL EVENT RULES & INFORMATION
Each Volleyball Team Captain must report to the YMCA event director to confirm the players for the tournament before the team’s first designated match.
Once the roster is confirmed, players may not be added to the roster. There will be a closed roster with up to a maximum of 12 players on the roster.
If a player cannot play because of an injury the official will allow a substitution from the roster. All play will be Double Elimination unless entries dictate Round Robin play!
High school rules will be used unless otherwise noted.
GENERAL VOLLEYBALL RULES
All teams must start with 4 players. Males cannot exceed the number of females on the court.
No jewelry, watches, electronics (ear buds)/telephones are permitted during practice/play time. (Stud earring, necklaces under the shirt and flat rings are allowed.)
A maximum of 5 minutes of court time for warm-up will be provided. No warming up during a match (only if games are complete).
Two, 30-second timeouts are allowed per set.
A team will forfeit their first game of the match if they are not ready to play at the sound of the officials’ whistle. There will
be a maximum of 5 minutes before the next game is started. If the team is still not ready, the second game will result in a forfeit, thus the match is a forfeit. The teams of the next scheduled match will then begin their 5 minute warm-up period.
Best-of-three series determines winner. Rally scoring will apply to all games. All games to 21 points, must win by 2 points. A cap will be set at 23 points. Thus, if a game is tied at 22, the next point scored will determine the winner.
Any abusive language and/or behavior will not be tolerated, and any team(s) or person(s) in violation will be dismissed from the game and a forfeit may occur.
Both teams must inform the official prior to the start of each game regarding the type of substitution/rotation that will be used. Only one method will be allowed per game. (See substitution/rotation rule)
At least three members from each team will be required to help officiate throughout the tournament (scorekeeper and two line judges). The official bracketing will show the matches to be played and the team that is required to officiate.
The ball is not to be put in play until after the sound of the officials whistle.
VOLLEYBALL DEFINITIONS
ATTACK HIT: An attack hit is an intentional effort to direct the ball into the opponent’s team area in other than blocking action. A third hit by a team is considered to be an attack hit, regardless of intention.
BACK ROW ATTACKER: A back row player who is on or forward of the attack line, (10 foot line), must contact the ball when part of the ball is below the level of the top of the net when returning the ball to the opponent’s team area.
BALL CONTACT: The ball may contact any part of the body. A player may have successive contacts with the ball when blocking or making the first play on a ball coming from the opponent, provided there is no finger action used during the effort and the ball is not held or thrown. Successive contacts on a first received ball must be during one continuous attempt to play the ball.
BLOCKING: Blocking is the action close to the net which intercepts the ball coming from the opponent’s side by making contact with the ball before it crosses the net, as it crosses the net or immediately after it has crossed the net. A ball that is legally blocked is not counted as the teams first legal hit. Thus, three more legal hits are allowed. In order for (a) player(s) to be in the act of blocking, some part of the body must be above the height of the net during the effort. DOUBLE HIT: When the ball is played in such a manner that there is finger action or contact is made by more than one part of the body.
ILLEGAL: When the ball visibly comes to rest in the hands, arms, or body of a player.
TEAM HITS: Each team is allowed a maximum of three (3) successive hits of the ball in order to return the ball to the opponent’s team area. Blocking does not constitute a team hit.

In stepping on center line, a player cannot interfere with an opposing players’ offensive or defensive play. All adjacent courts are out of bounds, if entered by a player(s), a fault will have been committed.
Sets - A player must be centered directly under the ball to overhead set. See definitions on held ball and double hit.

Illegal hit - Ball cannot be lifted or thrown. Ball must come off hand(s) immediately (split-second) on a spike or bump.
Back-Row Players - Back-row players may not direct a ball across the net if ball is still above net in front of the 10 foot line. A back row player may only spike from behind the attack line (10 foot line).
Substituting Players In and Out (Cannot be used with Rotation Method)
Substitution Rule - If a team wishes to substitute players instead of rotating, the Substitution Rule will be used. Groups of players (one on the court, others not playing) may substitute for each other no more than 18 times during a game. Entry into the game constitutes a substitution. Substitutions may take place from any position on the court (i.e. front left, middle back, etc.).
If a team wishes to rotate players in and out of a game, the rotation must be continuous. Players who have been rotated into the game or start the game cannot skip a rotation. The rotating of players in and out of a game must take place from the same position on the court (i.e. left back, middle back, left front, etc.).
