Catch, doubles, and lifts, oh my!

Hello all,

I worked my first USAV qualifier this weekend(13/14A/L). During one match, I had a coach send his captain to me complaining that the opposing teams setter was doubling/"lifting".

My question is what's the tolerance level for a setter having extended contact? How far down can a player go before it's considered "too much".

Same for doubles. If one of a players hand touches slightly before the other would you call that? I've normally just called egregious doubles but after talking with the R2 who is certified he agreed that I should have called doubles and catches more but didn't elaborate on what he was seeing.

I think it's impossible to describe, and it varies between under-10 rec and NCAAW D1.

But, if "everyone" at a particular level / league / event thinks you should be calling it tighter / looser, you probably should be.
