Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Tournament schedule and maps : Most tournament information is not released until late Wednesday before the tournament. As soon as we receive it, we will copy off the information and pass along this information by way of our website. Occasionally, we receive last minute changes due to teams withdrawing. We will get these changes to you by phone ASAP.

Packing for tournaments: Bring your entire uniform!!! numbered shirts, spandex,  kneepads, volleyball shoes, KVA issued socks, comfortable seating, blanket and pillow, nutritional snacks, bottled water, lunch food, and money for concessions and/or tournament T-shirts.

 

What should my daughter expect while at tournaments:  Your team coach will assign the time for your daughter to report to her designated court. She will be expected to be there BEFORE that assigned time. She should be there ready to play, which means shoes and socks on, kneepads up, contacts in, and important business already taken care of. (restroom visit)

 

Food recommendations:We will recommend that they eat nutritional foods in small amounts throughout the day, while competing. They will need to eat valuable fuels late in the day when players tend to become tired. Granola bars, yogurt, bananas, etc. We ask that they stay away from high sugar foods. Most teams will pool together to set up a table and provide food and drinks for the day.

 

Any last things expected of my daughter while at tournaments: Club tournaments require that we provide a down referee, keep the official scorebook, and call lines at some of the games. Your or your daughter will be expected to help in some capacity. We require that all players stay until all of our responsibilities are taken care of. If your team is assigned to officiate the court for the last game, all players will stay until the game is over. Failure to do so for any reason will affect playing time at the next tournament. If we are assigned the first game, all players will be expected to arrive on time to help in whatever capacity they are asked.

 

What if there is a conflict in my schedule and a scheduled tournament?If given advance notice, other parents will be willing to help get your daughter to and from tournaments. Share the arrangements with your coach and team mom.
