2015 Tournament & Post-Season Info

CURRENT INFO

  • Jeff is unable to be at the tournament this year due to a family conflict and our usual backup can’t make it.  Please consider asking someone from your church to manage the food (it’s just hot dogs and BBQ) for that day?  

    • If no one volunteers by Aug 5, we will have to forego providing food.

  • Don’t forget to have your church’s insurance company send a copy of Certificate of Liability insurance and mail it to the address emailed to you.  We have only received one or two at this point.  This is to allow you to play in the tournament
  • We need someone to do the devotional for the tournament.  Please consider asking your pastor or eloquent speaker on your team

TOURNAMENT INFO

We will need some nets for the tournament.  If you can provide a net like this one (color doesn’t matter, just quality), please hit reply to this email now and let us know.

We also need 3 volunteers to help with setup the Friday evening before.  Please reply to this email if you can help.

The volleyball tournament is scheduled to start August 15, 9am Summit International School of Ministry*.

  • Captains, if you are not planning to attend the tournament then here is what you need to know:  Call/email Joe with your wins & losses by August 14th, 9am and plan to have at least one person (anybody is welcome, though) from your church attend the post season volleyball meeting.  By attending you find out about things that will be happening next year provide valuable input into the league’s direction.
  • If you are planning to attend the tournament you need to call or email Joe by 9am on Friday, August 14th.  Anything received after that time will not be included in the tournament, no exceptions.  You need to call with the following:
    • Your team’s wins & losses for the year
    • If you will be attending the tournament
    • If you can provide a net
    • Please make these calls short and precise.  If you have any questions please try to have them asked before the 14th.  If you can’t, we understand.
  • For those coming to the tournament, the location does not have a ton of shade, so if you have any canopies, we recommend bringing them.
  • Please see this file for tournament rules and more information.

POST-SEASON INFO

The post season meeting will be held at Palmyra Grace Church** at 7pm on August 27.  Note that we are skipping a week and then having the meeting.  Here are just a few things to be considering for the meeting:
  • Potential rule changes or problems found during the season
  • Any suggestions for next year
  • Joe is looking for someone to take over management of the league

Hope to see you all at the tournament!

2015 June Reminders

We just wanted to send out some reminders to everyone in regards to the season & the tournament:

  • Don’t forget to have your church’s insurance company send a copy of Certificate of Liability insurance and mail it to us (see your captain for the address).  This is to allow you to play in the tournament
  • Players must play in 50% of the regular season games to be eligible to play in the tournament.  This is based on an honor system, but seeing that this is a church volleyball league we hope it won’t be an issue
  • Make sure you are keeping track of your wins and losses so you can report them at the end of the year.  Just as a reminder, one week should add up to 3 (ex: if you lost 2 and won 1)
  • We need someone to do the devotional for the tournament.  Please consider asking your pastor or eloquent speaker on your team
  • Jeff is unable to be at the tournament this year due to a family conflict and our usual backup can’t make it.  Would you consider asking someone from your church to manage the food (it’s just hot dogs and BBQ) for that day?

2015 Pre-Season Information

I’m sure all you’ve been able to think about the past few weeks is the upcoming season! :)
The 2015 summer season is just around the corner.  We’ve now opened the registration on the website.  Please know that all registrations are due by April 24.  I will send out drafts during the week after and have final schedules done by May 2 as May 14 will be the first game.
Here are a few things you need to know:
  1. All registrations are $45/team this year.  If payment hasn’t been received by April 24, you will not be included in the schedule.  Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make exceptions due to the amount of change it would cause to add an additional team.
  2. Make sure you talk to your coordinator for last year to get your teams registered.  If you aren’t sure, talk to them first, and then email me if you cannot get ahold of them (to find out if they registered yet or not).
  3. The tournament is set for Aug 15.  We are waiting to hear from Summit International School of Ministry to confirm that date.  Mark your calendars now (and look for a good pop up canopy sale)
  4. Updated rules for division can be found here.
  5. Updates from last year’s meeting:
    1. We will be asking a few teams of each division in 2014 to move up the next division in 2015.  This is based on your tournament and season record.  We will take each instance as a case by case basis.  We decided which teams during the post-season meeting.
    2. Captains are responsible to contact the other team and reschedule within two weeks.  The game date does not need to be within those two weeks, but a firm date must be chosen.
    3. Your players must attend at least 50% of the season to be able to participate in the tournament.
    4. Coordinators need to get liability insurance certificates to us at the beginning of the season instead of the end for the tournament.  Last year we purchased event insurance and it just wasn’t worth it.  We will not be doing liability waivers, so insurance is needed.
If you know of someone who would like to join the league, feel free to forward this email to them.  The only requirement is that they are in Lebanon County.
