Welcome to mid-week, open-play volleyball. All skill levels are accepted on Wednesdays, but please note this night is mainly for CC/B players. The purpose of this night is to build new and improve on old skills in a fun environment.
RSVP: Join the wait list, you will be added according to your profile level (make sure that's correct) and skill level of play.(Questions?:https://www.meetup.com/Fairfax-Loudoun-Volleyball/messages/boards/thread/52304405)
Expectations are as followed to abide by the rules:
1) Safe play: Volleyball can be dangerous if players do not follow the rules. In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, we follow several rules in every game, such as setter gets second ball, players call the ball, and players stay in their positions. If you don't yet know basic volleyball rules and positions, there are plenty of YouTube videos and web pages that will explain and demonstrate them. We can help refine the particulars on court.
2) Skill development: This is indeed open play night, but to play we need to keep the ball moving. This means that you -- regardless of current skill level -- are making a commitment to improvement each time you step on the court. I flag this, in part, because it also directly relates back to safety issues and knowing where you're supposed to be during play. Feedback is a gift and everyone on the court gets it -- the point is to use it. If you are committed to feedback and development, you hopefully won't be hearing the same feedback over and over again. NOTE: there is absolutely no problem with trying out and not being awesome at a new skill.
3) Abiding by the RSVP list: If you are "confirmed" and find you can no longer play, please cancel your RSVP no later than 6 pm on game day. This will ensure the next person on the wait list has enough time to update his/her plans. Remember that we have a 3-strikes rule: three no-shows means you will be removed from the group.
-- Also, if you are not "confirmed," please do not show up. We do not take walk-ons. This is a pay-to-play night and everyone deserves to get his/her money's worth...not just stand around watching and waiting to rotate in.
