All players are required to have a full junior membership with OVR/USA Volleyball for the 2017 season.  Go to the OVR Junior Registration page to obtain a full membership if you have not already done so.  Be sure to list Velocity Volleyball Club as the club you are playing for when you obtain the membership.

Scoring/Officiating Information

275px-Whistle_iconDuring tournaments, players and coaches are responsible for providing various roles (keeping score, 2nd official, libero tracking, etc.) while they are not playing. Therefore, it is critical that all players and coaches know how to perform the various roles.

 

OVR has provided pointers to some training materials and videos that describe how to perform these roles. Click the link to access the instructions on how to access these training materials.


Tournament Reminders

Feb 07, 2015

The tournament season for Velocity will begin soon.  For players that are new to the club (and as a reminder for returning players), each player/parent needs to know the following:

  • Players need to bring a ball to the tournaments for warm-ups and are also responsible for keeping track of the ball throughout the day. 
  • Parents talking to a coach during (or immediately after) a tournament about coaching decisions is not acceptable. Parents should address their concerns with the Club Director (Coach Servick) at a later time.
