The mission of the new association was to represent, communicate and lobby for the development, growth and marketing of all levels of youth and junior volleyball. The missions of the two organizations are very similar and a partnership was formed. JVDA had no staff, only a volunteer board. AVCA became the managing partner, responsible to administer the operations of the new association.
Members were granted a dual membership, adding value to the association. In the summer ofJVDA leaders met for their first strategic planning session. The new association was growing rapidly. We needed more clarity of our mission and a full time Executive Director. Our new and current mission is to promote the growth of youth and junior volleyball through program and resource development, education and events.
Best Practices Affordability and Financial Responsibility Player Welfare Transparency Member Driven To reflect our growing membership of all adults involved in junior volleyball clubs, we officially changed our name to "Junior Volleyball Association" and created a new more youthful logo to reflect the change. Into be more efficient and provide better service for our members, we took all our operations in house from AVCA.
Both organizations value the dual memberships and we retained that partnership through today. The simple answer is so that your club directors will become better business owners by joining the network of those who share their interests, passion for the game, and challenges.

There are several insurance companies that specialize in providing the coverage we need; such as participant and spectator liability, abuse and molestation, coaches professional, and accident medical to name a few. Once those companies are identified, applications should be submitted to no less than three of these companies to obtain the most competitive price. I can identify those companies, and they would vary depending on the state the facility is located in. Contact me directly for more information.
Are there benefits of equal play versus best players get the majority of playing time? What are the pros and cons of positional training for younger teams? Most clubs in our area try to make playing time as even as possible. We believe it is better to limit the playing time of players that we don't like, or players that have difficult parents.
In fact, if I have a player that is not getting playing time, parents know they can get their daughter in the match if they bring me a grande soy latte in the morning, or a nice cold can of squirt in the afternoon.
I hope that helps! Please give me some suggestions on how to fairly and effectively accommodate players on my team that play another sport besides volleyball during the club season? The first thing I would recommend is for the coach and the athlete and family to acknowledge that if some training time is missed for the other sport, that athlete will likely not progress as fast as her teammates that don't miss any practice.
Also, there is a cost physically to the player with the amount of jumping and other activity she is doing while playing two sports and measures should be taken to make sure that she is not at risk of overuse injuries. A third area to discuss is the playing time issues when a player is missing some training time to play the other sport. All three of these areas need to be discussed and understood by the parties.
After that is established and understood by all, we believe it is important to identify how each type of conflict will be resolved. For example, if there is a volleyball practice and a practice of the other sport, how will that be resolved? What about a volleyball practice and the other sport's competition?
What about a volleyball competition and the other sport's practice, and finally, what happens when both sports have competitions at the same time? As long as both sports' coaches, the player, and the parents all have a clear understanding of all of the above, it should prevent too many problems. When training younger players what sort of nutritional advice should you give them to help them keep growing and maintain their energy level during practices and competition?
Here are a couple helpful websites with more information: The occurrence of this situation is definitely on the rise with the struggling economy and the rising costs of club. We Triangle Volleyball Club employ several options. Secondly, we have a scrip-based fundraiser program that anyone receiving financial aid is required to participate in. Thirdly, we provide scholarship that is need-based. We fund scholarships through club savings via the Scrip program, member donations, and a specified percent of overall club budget.
A tip when awarding scholarships- we apply the scholarship as a match against their own payments. For every dollar they pay they are awarded a dollar in scholarship throughout the course of the season. It keeps their obligation in perspective. We also require regular payments, regardless of amounts.
Otherwise, folks do tend to fall so far behind they cannot catch up. It's starting to impair our team and families positive dynamic. What advice would you give to me, a new coach, to be respectful but rectify the situation? First, I would want to make sure that the parent understands the club's position on playing time. Is it equal, is it not guaranteed but earned? Assuming that it is not equal but earned, make sure that the player clearly understands what the player must do to earn more playing time.
If the player is confused, then that is a problem. If the player is aware by the coach of the plan for more playing time the coach has done their job.
Protocol with the issue of an upset parent also comes into play. What makes your players feel they are part of a club besides being on the team? Obviously establishing and maintaining a strong club culture must start at the top and trickle down. That means administrators and coaches must first value and implement a structure that seeks to find commonality and make connections within the community between staff, athletes, and parents.

During our training cycles involving position work we have 2 machines set up so that we can maximize the reps available to our hitters. We also use the machines during some of our camps when we need to maximize the reps on limited space. We usually explain to the athletes how to use the equipment then station a coach next to each machine to give feedback to the athletes.
Are there clubs that practice 4 or 5 days a week? Yes, there are times that a practice might run more than 3 hours and also times when a club team will practice up to days in a week. The first part of the question regarding the length of the individual practice will depend on what the goal of the training session is. For a session to last 4 hours it would need to encompass the following: The golden rule for training usually comes down to the higher the volume of work that you are doing time or reps then the lower the level of intensity should be.
We would never spend more than minutes of the minute total on what I would call "high intensity-high compressive training". Read more about Cleveland's history as a pioneer in cardiac care.
