March 31, 2019 Sammy’s Weekend Volleyball & CoEd 6’s Team Leagues . . . . ..2019 Season Notice :  Work Party,  Weekend Opener, & Team League Info :

To :   ALL Vballers crazy enough to be part of SWV ! ! ! !

Hi folks,
   Well, we are coming to the wire and getting ready and geared up to start stuff for the 2019 season.Welcome ALL who will be coming back, and to the newer folks that we’ve been lucky enough to pick upduring the winter.  Hope to see you down when you can make it.

1).   First order of business :  Work Party at Seamans Neck Park :

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS !!!   We are looking at April 27, 2019 start time at 10:00 am.  Rain date the next day, Sunday the 28th.   IF possible, I need bodies with shovels, rakes, and hands on deck to help out get some things back into better working order for this season.  IF you can make it PLEASE drop me a note and let me know if you can come, and if you have any gardening tools ( Shovel, Rake, Broom ) to bring to help out.     We’ll be shifting the sand grade again.  Fixing up the nets again.  and just a general spruce up.  If we can all be there on time, it shouldn’t take more than roughly 2 hours as it did last year ( to whom I still say a big thank you too! ).  So, LET ME KNOW.

2).   Second Note :  The SWV 2019 Weekend Season  & AVP America

Membership Requirement :
   Sammy’s Weekend Volleyball OPENER :  We are scheduling to begin, again weather permitting us to do so, May 18th, 2019.  Start time 9:00 am to roughly 1:30 pm.  And guess what, “I” have a PERMIT to do so.  Therefore, THIS season EVERYONE MUST go get an AVP America membership number, and then when down sign off on my typical waiver form.  That’s it.  No other fee for the ENTIRE SUMMER ! ! ! !, including Sunday’s when we run things as that I listed down as a “MAKE-UP” day.  The Town of Hempstead approved it.
   To obtain your AVP America yearly membership go to :                    https://www.avpamerica.com/Add-Player.aspx
   When there, and when you register, select “East End Volleyball” from the dropdown menu for the Org/Beach club, selection.  That’s our umbrella coverage.  You will obtain your registration number, of which MUST be given to ME.  Then, we’ll have NO worries when we do any of our group things, as well as, any other “organized” play we decide to do or hold.  ALSO, this way, the court is OURS on those days and times, and so we will be a bit more protected from other groups who now have eyes on our piece of sand!
   ALSO, note that when you obtain your AVP America membership, you’ll be all set should you decide to do anything with the AVP, EEVB, as well as, our own SWV, in the future.  And on that note, I have been given information to spread to our group something that you also might all be interested in.  Please read the following;

   From Rich Heiles – EEVB
Two new local leagues are available to the SWV players in case they want to play another night during the summer:

–   Monday at Nickerson Beach: any team from your group can play for $225 / team –   Thursday down at Pt. Lookout: for $350 / Team

NOTE : Teams MUST be pre-register by April 30th and mention your name ( Sammy’s Weekend Volleyball – Sammy Ciccolella ).   Although, the Monday thing technically conflicts with ME, you never know.  So if ANYONE is interested, you have a special rate thing if you are at all wanting to do so.  Wow! An actual “perk” through SWV. 🙂

3).   Next Order of Business :   SWV Monday and Wednesday CoEd 6’s Team League :

   To all our VBallers out there.  IF you’re at all interested, and time is coming close to our Team Start, slated right now for May 13th for Monday’s and May 15th for Wednesday’s, PLEASE get in touch with me ASAP.  
   We are looking for teams for the Monday Night Day, and possible “Free Agents” for the Wednesday Night Days we play.   Again, this is a pay to play team league, exclusive to our SWV members first.  I will have the absolute costs per team by next week, and shoot that out to all.  Also, for it, you NEED to have your AVP America membership in good standing, SO, if you act now and pick it up soon, you’ll have it whether you’re looking to form a new Monday Night Team, and or go Free Agent with anyone for Monday’s or Wednesdays.
   The season is ALSO gong to run a bit longer this year.  Where Typical League Play shall be ending on the week of September 2nd. Monday and 4th Wednesday, the following two weeks shall be the Semi-Finals and Finals Playoff Days.  This hopefully will better work for most’s schedules, as we learned from last year.So, Monday Semi-Finals Sept. 9th, Finals Sept. 16.  AND  Wednesday Semi-Finals Sept. 11th., and Finals Sept. 18th.  Again, we hope that this better fits most all’s schedules.
   We have a slight update to the Rules and Notes, which over the course of the next week/weekend, I shall pump out to the entire group.  I am just happy to bring out THIS, my first 2019 Season Group Notice out to everyone at this time.
   Again, we play by the rules we have set down.  We look to play good games as possible.  We always look to play smart and SAFE.  AND bottom line, let’s have some FUN.  That’s what it’s really all about.
   I look forward seeing everyone, and more, again this season, so pass the word to everyone, and we’ll be in touch soon.
