Aloha Parents and Players,

With open arms we WELCOME you into our Volleyball Ohana! THANK YOU for trusting in our volleyball program! We are devoted to not only developing good volleyball players - we also focus on developing well rounded individuals who will one day be a positive role model in our community!


Preparing Your Player

Each team has a limited amount of gym time.  Our Coaches are all volunteers who give up their time to teach your Player. It is imperative that your Player come prepared and FOCUSED on practice. Please stress the importance of coming to practice and giving 100%!

 

  • Players are to be dressed comfortably for practice.
  • Clothing with buttons or zippers are NOT allowed for the safety of the Player. - NO JEANS SHORTS OR PANTS!
  • Shirts should completely cover the Player's midsection. NO cut shirts allowed.
  • Shorts must completely cover the Player's buttocks.
  • Clothing with profanity or displaying any illegal activity is NOT allowed.
  • Gym shoes are required to ensure that Players are not sliding on the court.
  • Knee pads are recommended - not required.
  • Ankle braces are recommended for front row Players (13u - 18u)
  • Long hair should be up and back so it is not in the Player's face. Hair should be secured so that the Player is not distracted during practice/games with trying to put their hair up.
  • No jewelry allowed during practices or games.
  • No gum chewing allowed during practices or games.
  • Players are not allowed to touch their phones during practice. If you have an emergency, please contact your Player's Coach.

Coaches have a right to contact Parents should any of the items listed above be a concern. 


PARENT RESPONSIBILITIES

If your Player will be missing practice, Parent notification is REQUIRED.
Do not have your Player text or call.  PARENT notification is REQUIRED.
Use the Club's Sports Engine app to send a message to your Coach.
 
Be sure your Player is on time to practice.  
Coaches are responsible for Players, 15 minutes before the start of practice and 15 minutes after practice. 
Please be sure to be on time to pick up your Player!

Parent Involvement

Parents can play many roles in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.


  • Every season the Board and Coaches choose one community service project for the club to participate in. Participation in the community service project is MANDATORY and often includes the Player and a Parent/Guardian.  Information will  be distributed once a decision is made.
  • Players and Parents are REQUIRED to participate in no more than 2 CLUB fundraisers per season.  The Board and Coaches will decide on the fundraiser.  The profit from the CLUB fundraisers will go directly to the club and not the individual Player.  The profit is used to offset facility fees, equipment costs, continuing education for the Coaching staff and other miscellaneous expenses.  Information on the CLUB fundraiser will be distributed once a decision is made.
