hmm...they're just like back row blockers...not the jump in the front zone but the height of the contact fully above the height of the net...

There's a couple situations - first one simple, second a little more convoluted...let me try....

Situation 1:
A back row player, while on or in front of the attack line, may not legally complete an attack on a ball that is completely above the height of the net. The attack is complete when the ball completely crosses the net or is legally blocked by an opponent.

Situation 2:
The libero, while on or in front of the attack line, may not set a ball with overhead finger action that is subsequently attacked by any of her teammates while the set ball is completely above the height of the net. Same rules for completetion of attack apply as above.....

Did I get it right Jan?

Toolman, you got it right! First situation is definitely BRA. Second situation is an illegal attack (same signal as BRA) on the Libero. Very nice job!

Tim is correct. All three of these things have to happen to have a back row attack:

1. Back row player must be on or leave the floor from on or in front of the attack line.
2. Ball must be contacted while it is entirely above the height of the net.
3. The attack must be completed by the ball completely crossing the net or being legally blocked by the opponent.

I noticed that it is mostly a back row setter that will commit this violation. Not always, but if you are aware of when a setter is in the back row, you will be more attuned to recognize the BRA.

Another thing is, is there any list or anything of the signals that the umpire gives to the referee so show certain things. I know of the one finger across the chest to signal game point and the number of timeouts on the leg is there anything else???

There is the one with the fist with the pinkie and thumb extended, wiggled back and forth that signifies "You just let this match go to a fifth game; you're buying the drinks!"
