The Short of it : GAMES ON – Sat 06/25 & Sun 06/26.
Saturday Start 9:15 am / Sunday Start 4:15 pm
Be as early as you can to assure we get the courts.
Now for the Long Winded Version of things I need to relay to all. . . . . . . . . . .
League Notes :
1). 2016 Sammy’s Weekend Volleyball T-Shirts Are Coming IN THIS FRIDAY ! ! ! ! ! :
This weekend I should have all the orders that were made, plus a few extras in case anyone wants, of the new 2016 T-Shirts & Tank Tops for our league. So, those of you that ordered ’em hopefully you’ll be around one of the days where we can swamp some coins for fabric. 🙂 I think they look really good from the preview prints I saw from the MFG, and I do hope that everyone who ordered one will like them just as much and wear them with PRIDE.
2). Hot weather and Ice :
The hot weather is now upon us, so I remind and will say this to you all again, please make sure that you bring what you need to play in the hot sun, as well as, anything else you require personally to ensure your safety and enjoyment down at the park. If you have some sort of special need or requirement, and if I can help, let me know before there’s any problem. This includes bringing with you some sort of foot protection – Sand Socks, ample water, and any other item you need. Be smart, be prepared. Furthermore, I also recommend everyone to bring some sort of cooler with ice. You’ll need it when the temp’s hit the 80’s +. And although “I” try to accommodate for most basic needs, please note this does NOT include MY cooler. I bring what I need in it, plus a little extra in case of any emergency need as we somewhat recently had, but I can NOT bring the basics for YOU. SO, if YOU want something cold to drink, bring what you need to do so and don’t rely upon anyone else to have it for you – UNLESS you get smart and work things out with others who come down. I would also like again to say a BIG THANK YOU to all that really have chipped in and brought things down for the group such as the platters and trays of fruit, Beverages and other things. It’s great when folks chip in and help out greatly and I personally would like to thank you for helping make the game days even better.
3). Game Play :
Once again, I’d like to remind all that we all have our own perspectives on playing volleyball dependent on where we come from and how we’re used to go about playing. As a general guideline for SWV, we use sort of a compilation of what goes down at Jones and Cedar Beach leagues, as well as, some other sources. However, there will be some differences at SWV, and other rules that you won’t find at these places and that’s due to how we’ve decided how things best fit what goes on at SWV. For an example; The teams that are set up and assigned to a court will play TWO (2) sets of games. Each team REMAINS on the court they’re on until the END OF THE GAME, then will SWITCH to the opposite side for the second set. There is NO switching-off during games ( as done at the beach leagues ). This is done so that when done with an entire game for all teams on both courts, the ENTIRE group will rotate equally such that All teams will play each other at least once, possibly twice during the day ( minimally ). Please follow this rule as to not confuse the overall rotation. Again, should there be any questions that come up during the game play, please seek me out for a ruling, and or simply enough Just agree on something and re-do the serve. I appreciate all your cooperation to that effort to make game play as easy to follow as possible.
4). Final note :
Again folks, just want to Thank ALL the regulars that show up, come down, and especially chipping in to all the things that we’ve got going on. I really hope that YOU too will also take pride in what we’ve got going on and created here. From nothing to actually doing something pretty decent, and I only hope that things will improve as time goes by, and we decide what works from what doesn’t. Hopefully now that the HOT is here, we’ll be able to play a bit more confidently, and more consistently. For all the new folks, THANK you for the interest and I hope to see you all too start coming down regularly and fit into the SWV ranks, make new friends, network to new places to play, and have FUN while doing so. Anyone with suggestions, comments, etc., are always welcomed and you can do so to me by ALL the ways we have to get in touch with one another. So drop me a line anyhow you’d like should you wish to communicate something to me. Again, this IS about FUN and I hope that we all have a great and safe summer 2016. I promise I’ll do all that I can possibly do to ensure that happens.
If you have read all that I’ve written in this weeks email, God bless ya and Congrats. Now I just hope to see you down on the courts when we set things up and play.
Stay well, play hard, and don’t poke too much fun at me when I screw up on the play! 🙂
