Under 54 – 8 – 1 the Virginia High School League has modified its contest limitations for volleyball. Each school has the choice of playing the following three scenarios 20 dual matches; or 18 dual matches and 1 invitational tournament; or 16 dual matches and 2 invitational tournaments.
- Invitational tournaments may be conducted over no more than two consecutive days.

In the second round, teams will be grouped in another 6 pools of three according to their finish in the first round. All 1st place team in 2 pools , all seconds in another 2 pools, all thirds in the remaining 2 pools. The second round will again play three 25-point rally scoring sets for a total of 12 sets. The third round will one match using the best of 3, with any deciding games to 15. Each team will play 14 or 15 sets total.
