Are you ready for some volleyball?
If you registered last season, you should receive a notice reminding you that your registration expires on October 31, 2017. Please use the following link to complete your individual registration: https://webpoint.usavolleyball.org/wp15/IntraLock/Login.asp
Has your mailing address changed?
If your name or mailing address has changed, please contact the Registrar to make the changes in WebPoint for you.
Please DON’T create a new record. Creating a new account will delete your historical information and you will lose access to your certifications.
To register your team for this season use the 2018 CHRVA Team Registration form. You must have a minimum of six players registered as members prior to being assigned a team number. You will not be able to enter a tournament without a team number. Detailed instructions are on page one of the form. You can download the form below or from the Adults page by clicking on the Forms & Documents on the left of the page. Please make sure that you submit the document in EXCEL to the CHRVA Registrar, Barb Cline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advance Event Systems (AES)
You may have heard the news that Sports Commander (SC) is no longer in business. Since Advance Event Systems (AES) is currently being used in the Region, it made sense for the Adult Program to participate as well. AES has been working with the volleyball community for the past 15 years! They will provide software services specific to running and managing volleyball events in the Region; this includes event management and scheduling software. For those of you that have attended Nationals, you may be familiar with the system and if you’re not familiar with the system, don’t worry a designated AES Coordinator will be assisting with this year’s tournament schedule.
We are excited about the new system and look forward to some of the great benefits the system has to offer to include increasing our visibility in other regions!
CHRVA has created a new membership category for adults. It is a one-day membership for $20 that allows someone to play in one tournament during the season. This person can register up until morning check in. The player must be able to print out a copy of the membership receipt and it should be turned in at check in with the team roster. The player can upgrade to a full membership at any time by logging into Webpoint and paying the balance of $30. Couple of things to keep in mind:
This is for adults only
This is not available as a collegiate membership. However, after playing, a collegiate player can update to full membership by providing verification of fulltime student status.
This membership is good for ONE date only
When players register for this membership, they must enter the date of the tournament
In order to play again during the season, at Regionals, or Nationals, the player must upgrade to full membership status
This membership is not counted as one of the six players needed to register a team
Overall, the 2017 Men’s and Women’s AA/A self-ref Pilot Program was successful! There will be some needed changes to ensure a smoother 2018 season. Referees and scorers will not be required to be certified however; it is important that all members familiarize themselves with the rules. Please review clinics when they are available.
Based on member feedback and in order to make certain we get off to a great season, we will need to make the following changes:
Matching uniforms are optional, BUT numbers are required. You can tape it on or write it on with a marker, having a number will make scoring easier.
Libero’s MUST wear a jersey that is immediately recognized as being distinct from the other members of the team. The Libero is the ONLY player that can play without a number, but the jersey must be clear in contrast or distinct from other players.
The R1, R2, and score flipper will continue to be responsible for catching illegal use of Libero (i.e. rotating to the front row, serving illegally).
UPDATE! We’ll use the official score sheet and it must be completed entirely, which is why it is important that players completing the score sheets must review the clinic to ensure they have an understanding of how to properly complete it.
The Tournament Director will appoint two other individuals (one from each court) to serve on the protest committee in order to resolve issues using the Handbook and DCR. Hosts will be required to provide either hard copies or a laptop or tablet. Researching rules on phones will not be allowed.
All teams will be agreeing to this when signing the team registration form. This signature also holds your team to act with courtesy and consideration toward all work teams and each other.
All Adult Regionals will be held on Saturday, 14 April 2018 at Discovery Sports Center in Boyds, Maryland*
*Any team may play in Regionals, but in order to receive any reimbursement toward the National Championships, your team must play in 30% of the tournaments scheduled on Advanced Event Systems (AES) during the regular season. If a tournament is canceled before being posted on AES, it does not count toward the 30%. However, if it is canceled due to lack of teams, it will count for the teams that registered and against those that chose not to play.
The US Adult Open Championships will be held in Dallas, Texas
25-30 MAY 2018
Check the link in January for information on hotels and entry.
*In order to receive reimbursement toward Nationals, your team must play in at least 30% of the tournaments posted on AES. (See the rule to the left under Regionals). You must also send a copy of your entry to the Commissioner by her deadline. It will be posted once it is announced.
