Other Important Information

HOUSING INFORMATION:

In order to compete in USA Volleyball national tournaments and national bid tournaments, USAV requires that clubs adhere to the USAV Stay to Play policy. This policy mandates that we book hotel rooms through USAV’s housing department. USAV selects the hotels. Ultimate signs contracts with hotels guaranteeing a certain number of rooms in order to obtain the best possible rates for our families and to adhere to USAV’s Stay to Play Policy.  Therefore, Ultimate’s policy requires players/families to stay at the designated hotel with their team. Hotel information will be provided to families prior to tournaments, and families must book a room in our block by the specified date. 

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULES:  

Competition dates will be available in October. Actual tournament game times are not released by the hosts until a few days prior to the tournament. Once we receive that information, we will post it on our website, www.ultimatevolleyball.com. Look for the tournament name and team name.  The team’s first assignment of the day will be listed.  Teams that play first must arrive 45 minutes prior to start; teams that officiate first must arrive 30 minutes prior. Please plan on playing all day with an 8:00 a.m. start and finishing in the late afternoon. Tournament site location can be found on our website in the Directions link.

TOURNAMENT FACILITY RULES:

NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK ALLOWED AT ANY TOURNAMENT LOCATION.  Please adhere to this and all facility rules.  Violations result in fines to the individual, fines to the team, penalty points assessed to the team, and forfeits charged to the team.

PRACTICE UNIFORM and BALL:

The practice uniform for the boys is black shorts of any kind and the club issued practice shirts.  Players are required to be in uniform for every practice.   Each player is required to bring his volleyball to every practice.
