News and Announcements

NO PRACTICE (tomorrow) TUESDAY, DECEMBER 28!
We hope you had a wonderful (white) holiday with your families. With that said, knowing our players are coming from all over and roads are not great (yet), some people can’t get out yet, and still others were already not planning on practice, we are canceling tomorrow’s practice.
Stay safe, have a happy New Year, and see you Tuesday, January 4 at our regular practice times!

We have had an unprecedented number of registrants for our upcoming tryouts. To ensure your player’s safety and an equitable tryout for all, we are separating the age groups to run two tryouts this Saturday, October 30. This means:
1) Tryouts for 13s will go from 1-2:30, with check in at 12:30 and a very quick parent meeting at 12:45
2) Tryouts for 14s will go from 3-4:30, with check-in for 14s at 2:30 and a very quick parent meeting at 2:45
NOTE: if your player absolutely cannot make the planned age group tryout time, they are welcome to attend the other tryout; just know that we may not have a definitive answer for them until after all tryouts are over.
We apologize for the last-minute change, but the numbers just keep rising and we had to make a decision based on safety and equity. Thank you for your understanding. We are so excited to see your players this Saturday!

Valley View Update : WE ARE RUNNING TEAMS FOR THE 2021-22 SEASON!!!
The Valley View Volleyball Board of Directors met last month to determine our ability to logistically and safely start our volleyball offerings. Based on multiple factors, including gym availability and COVID-19 safety protocols, we are excited to announce that we will be running teams this season, 2021-22!

What Can I Do to Help?
Knowing that VVV is a small, volunteer-heavy, non-profit we need your help! We are looking to build a robust Board of Directors comprised of smaller committees to assist and balance the workload of our volunteer board members. Our current board is a working board meaning that we assume the administrative responsibilities for the organization to keep it running. The board members have the vision to take Valley View to the next level and if you are interested in supporting, brainstorming, networking, empowering, and educating we invite you to inquire about our open positions on the executive board and sub-committees. If interested in Board President or Member-at-large position, please contact Cathy Tiffany at v.v.v.director@gmail.com.

What happened to USAV Webpoint?
USAV has shifted its membership platform to SportsEngine so all parents/players will have an action item from me. I will be sending out an invitation to join our SportsEngine membership. Parents will create a log-in for all players, so player registrations are now under the parent (not player) email. This allows you to handle your players’ memberships (registrations, upgrades, required training, etc.) all from one platform, regardless of where you land to play.

Yours in Health and Volleyball,

USAV has followed the recommendations of the federal government and extended its ban on sanctioning activities though April 30, effectively ending our season. It is with a heavy heart that our Board met last night and decided that we had to call an end to our club’s season.

We feel blessed to have spent as much time as we could with our new and returning players during this truncated season. We thank you for having trusted your player with us this year and hope you will stay in the family next season.

Yours in volleyball,
Valley View Volleyball Club
