If we are not sure we will encourage you to go to our other volleyball events so we can see you play. This specific meetup event are for high level play only and the skill level is assessed objectively. Preference will be given for the following reasons:
1. Consistency of attendance.
2. Tardiness and tendency for early departure.
3. Skill level.
4. Ability to understand and play the 5-1 format.
5. Willingness to help out to improve the experience of all players.
If you are on the waitlist with a number of other players and would like to organize a third team contact either Eric or myself and we will facilitate the communication between waitlistees to make that happen however we are not going to evaluate the third team for “balance”.
