IMPORTANT UPDATES ABOUT OUR 2020-2021 SEASON

Coronavirus Statements

NERVA will continue to monitor the situation and abide by USA Volleyball guidelines. (USAV Updates are available at https://www.teamusa.org/usa-volleyball/features/usa-volleyball-response-on-coronavirus )
Parents always should do what they feel is in the best interest of their athlete. If you do not feel safe attending an event simply stay home!

 

Open vs Regional teams

What is a South County "Open Team" in 2020-2021 season?

 An Open team will have a minimum of 2 practices per week and compete both locally in New England and outside of New England.  Last season our Open teams were scheduled to compete in 5 one day events and 5 multiday events, including one tournament outside of New England.  The USAV and AAU volleyball schedules are still TBD.  We will be building this tournament schedule as soon as we can for our open teams.  My plan is to poll the teams once they are formed to determine their final tournament schedule.  We ask families to stay flexible as we continue to gather information about our tournament season.

Open teams have access to Hudl - which gives families access to videos of their matches with the ability to create their own highlights.  Coaches can also use Hudl to schedule remote film sessions with their teams.

Tuition for our Open teams will vary by the final tournament schedule.  Families can expect to pay between $1800-$2500 depending on the tournament schedule.   The tuition covers coaches pay, gym rentals, entry fees, uniform, coaches travel expenses, Hudl, etc.  Families will be responsible to cover travel expenses for their athlete.

 

What is a South County Regional Team in 2020-2021?

A Regional team will practice 2 times per week and compete in local New England events.  In the past, our regional teams have been schedule to compete in 4-5 one day events and an additional 1-3 multi-day events.  The tuition for our Regional teams will depend on the eventual tournament schedule.  Families can expect to pay between $1200-$1600 this season.

 



Helpful hints - Not all facilities have bleacher seating.  Parents should bring their own chairs just in case.  Not many sites have concession stands so be prepared to pack a lunch for the day or drive off site to food.  Most tournaments begin at 9:00am and end around 4:00pm.  This is only an estimate.  Sometimes we get lucky with a very convenient location and other times we need to travel a bit on these Sundays.  

The convention center tournaments will require spectators to purchase entry passes.  All schedules and passes for these events can be found on www.sportwrench.com.

MESSAGE FROM SOUTH COUNTY VOLLEYBALL CLUB ABOUT THE REMAINDER OF OUR SEASON.

Season update as of 5/4/2020 5:00pm:

NERVA has cancelled all remaining indoor events.

AAU is planning on hosting two events in July at Mohegan Sun.  The dates are July 18th-19th and July 25th-26th.  These tournaments will be optional for teams in our club and I'll ask coaches to reach out to ask families if interested in playing in these events as we get closer to July.  Our refunds and credits are assuming we do not play in these events.

At this time, we have decided to issue refunds to our Girls Competitive players due to our shortened season.  Some clubs have been able to offer refunds, while others have not.  We have decided to give our families a choice of a refund or a credit toward the 2020-2021 indoor season.  If possible, refunds will be credited back your most recent online tuition payment method.  If that is not an option, refunds will be in the form of a check.  Checks will be mailed out asap.  This registration will remain open until June 10th, 2020.  (This registration is now closed.  Please email scvbmike@gmail.com to inquire about your refund/credit options)

Refunds were calculated by totaling the cost of each teams missed tournament entry fees, unused gym time, coaches pay, etc. during the missed weeks of our season.  Every teams refund amount exceeds the total revenue lost during this time.  More details are provided in the registration links.

Thanks to everyone for their patience as we all navigate this difficult time together.
