GENERAL NOTES: The National Qualifier will be a lot of action for the girls and for the families as well. We ask that you keep your adventures during down-time to a minimum and be mindful of the energy your players are expending and therefore need to conserve. We want to have a great time but this is not a vacation it is a time to honor the work and commitment our players have put in to get this far by making sure they are at their best to compete.
This is a USA Volleyball Regional Qualifying Tournament. We can expect the rules to be enforced a bit stricter and hopefully this will lead to increased speed of play. Keep in mind:
No parents are allowed on the courts AT ANY TIME unless you are a member of the LAVBC coaching staff. This includes shagging balls during warm-ups etc.
By now you are privy to the tension some teams/parents carry into these events. Please do not pay any attention to off-handed comments or otherwise off-putting incidents. Please bring any persistent issues to the attention of the coaching staff.
Be mindful that failing to ref a game will lead to a forfeit of the first game of our next match. EVERY PLAYER must contribute to this effort. We will rotate officiating duties. Please do not leave the court unless you have been cleared to leave by Coach JO.
All players should bring BOTH JERSEYS TO EVERY GAME.
Team functions and/or meetings are mandatory during the trip.
VENUE NOTES: There are no coolers or outside chairs allowed. There are restaurants available but food selection is not fantastic. Right now we are recommending bringing healthy packaged food options from Whole Foods or the like in back packs.
Saturday and Sunday schedules are dependent on our play and what we are told after play on Friday.
