Volleyball Saturday

Hello volleyball friends

This Saturday we’ll be doin’ our usual thing: free youth clinics from 9:30am to 11:30am followed by an adult “speed” tournament at noon. We’ll be at our usual location along Bayou St John near the Mid-City post office. Please arrive by 11:45am for the tournament so we can get an accurate head count… it really screws us up if we add more players as cards are being distributed. We’re thinking of charging extra money if you arrive after 11:45am. Seriously! Right now it’s still only $5.00/player whenever you arrive. FYI the final rounds of the LHSAA volleyball season will take place tonight through Saturday at the Pontchartrain Center. Playoff brackets for tonight’s quarter-final action can be seen here: http://lhsaa.org/sports/brackets-results/volleyball/. Just a reminder, the next opportunity to take the Beach IMPACT on-line course is in two and a half weeks. It’s a two-part webinar on Monday November 26 and Tuesday November 27 from 7:30pm to 10:00pm (CST) each night. The October course filled up quickly and at least one New Orleanian was unable to sign-up at the last minute, so don’t delay. Early Bird pricing will apply only until November 24, 2012. Sign up here: http://www.teamusa.org/Home/USA%20Volleyball/Education/Coaching%20Education%20Events%20Schedule.aspx. The cost will be $25.00-$50.00 depending on whether you are already indoor IMPACT certified. If you obtain a coaching certificate and help Mid-City Youth Volleyball give instruction for at least one clinic, then we’ll reimburse you the cost of your Beach IMPACT training. However, you will still be responsible for becoming a USAV member at a cost of $20.00 or $50.00 depending on what category you select (see www.bayouvolleyball.com to register as a member of the Bayou Region). Have a great weekend, Peter
