B or Higher - Indoor Volleyball CENTRE CLUB GURNEE

Cost is $6 - Pay at the front counter when you enter.  If you'd like to show up early, the $6 fee also gives you access the fitness equipment and pool.

There are 2 nets available. This event is limited to 24 players to ensure we don't have too many attendees.  You must RSVP if you plan to attend.  There is a wait list in case the event fills up.  Meetup will automatically notify you if a spot opens up, and it will automatically RSVP you (first come, first served).  If you show up, and aren't RSVP'd, you'll be asked to leave.  The gym will not permit you to stay to exercise.  They will not be refunding your money.

If you can't make it, please adjust your RSVP so someone can take the spot.  If you repeatedly no-show, we'll ban you from attending.

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.  REC players should not attend.

If you aren't SURE that this event is appropriate for you, please ask prior to attending.  If a REC player does attend, a notice will be sent requesting they not attend this event again until they meet the skill requirement.  If the request is ignored, they'll be removed from the group.

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 tips 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.

      Is that more specific to the first hard-driven ball, being a serve or a spike, or any first ball?

      Any first technically.

    USAV rule 11. 4.3 states (2013 - 2015 rulebook) "Illegal plays at the net - making actions which hinder an opponent’s legitimate attempt to play the ball." In other words - three scenarios: Team A attacks from back row, and the ball is driven into the net. A player from Team B places his hand up in order to protect his face, and the ball deflects through the net. Play resumes, no penalty. (at discretion of ref)

    Team A passes poorly and it goes into the net, with no one there to make a play for the ball. Team B places his hand up and it deflects through the net and the ball lands on the floor. No penalty because there was no way Team A would have been able to make a play anyway. Team A passes poorly and it goes into the net, but a teammate is there to make a play on the ball. Team B places his hand up and deflects through the net, causing the ball to be redirected. Penalty on Team B, point is given to team A, and Team A serves for next play.

    I used to ref and found my playbooks.

    By the way, 2013 FIVB's rule 3.3 states "successive contacts are legal (from one player) on the first hit, so long as the hit was one continuous action, and not deemed a throw or catch". In other words, this past Tuesday when Paul hit the ball twice (once off his forearms and then off his chest in one complete action), that would have been deemed legal. So long as the ball doesn't roll up a person's arm, but rather bounces off their forearms and shoulder or chest or head in one continuous motion (obviously just two separate hits on the same person), play should continue.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
