O'k i have watched a few games of volleyball on the olympics and have no idea why one person in each team wears a different coloured uniform.  Can anyone shed some light on this for me please

I don't quite know but I was watching Breakfast this morning and Jack Taim said that they're skilled players who are given a handicap. They're not allowed to do certain things (such as serve).

Ahhhh o'k that makes sense then, it was certainly very confusing the other day cos the 2 wearing different colours almost looked like they were wearing the other teams uniform

Just dragged this off the net..

ITS CALLED A "LIBERO" PLAYER
Each team has the option to register one specialised defensive player, "Libero" among the final list of 12 players for the whole tournament.
The specific rules for a Libero player are as follows:
A) He/she is restricted to performing as a back row player and has no right at all to complete an attack hit when the ball is above the height of the top of the net.
B) The Libero may not serve, block or attempt to block.
C) The Libero must wear a different colour shirt from the other members of the team.
D) Substitutions involving a Libero are not counted as regular and their number is unlimited. A Libero cannot take part in normal substitutions and may only enter or leave the game while the ball is out of play and before the whistle for service.
E) It is necessary to have a rally between replacement of two different players involving a Libero. With the previous approval of the first referee, an injured Libero may be substituted during the match by any registered player within the normal line-up list of the score sheet.
G) The designated replacement of a Libero will be limited to performing as a Libero for the rest of the match and the subsequent matches. Nevertheless, this player will be allowed to be registered again in the normal line-up of later matches once the initially registered Libero is officially re-instituted.
H) No other player will be authorised to perform as a Libero and in the case of further injury of the originally registerd Libero, he/she will be replaced by the same player under the same conditions as stated in previous points.

I was actually thinking of the vollyball I was down at the supermarket earlier on. Lucky you mentioned it so I could double check or I would've just forgot.
