B or Higher - Indoor Volleyball CENTRE CLUB GURNEE

UPDATE:  Due to Paul being awesome, we have 2 nets from now on!  Be sure to thank Paul for working on this the past few months!  Please note that we'll be playing at Gurnee from now on.

The cost for open gym fee is $6.  The $6 fee includes use of the gym court, running track, pool, weight room, etc.

Please make sure you have all your stuff out of the locker room PRIOR to 10PM.  The gym closes at 10, and you need to be ready to walk out with your stuff at 10.  Not 10:05.









Please make sure you are B or higher. Here is the definition from this Meet-up group:

B: Players at this level and above are competitive and play year round. Play is skilled, but needs to improve in consistency.  Each player can pass, set, and attack, but there are some issues with control and speed. Players pass and set to a target at a rate of over 85%. They serve with power and accuracy (but not yet for aces or return errors). Most attacks are hit downward with power – landing generally in the back third of the court. Periodically, roll shots and dinks are also seen. Single blocks are attempted on almost every attack, and occasionally double blocks are executed successfully. Everybody here knows the game well, sees the whole court in order to execute plays.

REC players should not attend.

If you aren't SURE that this event is appropriate, ask Chris or Jason.  If a REC player does attend, I'll send a notice requesting they not attend this event.  If they ignore the request, they'll be removed from the group.

There is 1 net available. Cost is $6 - Pay at the front counter when you enter.

Look for us on the court.

    Okay! I just called the Centre Club and we still have two courts, but as some of us know that Sunday we were unable to spike on half of one court and unfortunately it seems as if they haven't put up the netting yet. But we'll still have two courts. Chris, Kelley, Jason n I will take care of the organization aspect, so if you have any question please ask one of us. Thanks! See y'all in a few hrs.

    So is this canceled? I'm confused lol.

      Sorry. Wallyball got cancelled, so I just changed your RSVP to this event since I didn't want you to lose the spot. Sorry it's farther, but they didn't like the ball flying towards the women's locker room all the time. They were worried someone would get smacked in the face on their way out.
