Rockaway Beach Volleyball Holds Final Meeting

By Joe McGivney

Wednesday 5/5 the RBVL will hold its final and most important pre-season meeting at the Kerry Hills Pub at 8:00 p.m. and all captains are required to attend. As always, all players are welcome as well and each squad must be represented. There are a few important items to be covered so please arrive promptly. Questions and answers will conclude the session.

After the meeting (at 9 p.m.), each team will be required to pay the balance of their league fee. Additionally, they should provide a list of their players to insure their placement in the proper division based on their level of play. The league’s goal is to have the most evenly matched teams in each division so that each week will be filled with exciting, action-packed matches, not forfeits and blowouts. Last year’s 4-division format worked well and we should see many more tightly contested matches again this year. Because of the short time frame before opening day, this information must be submitted on 5/5.

Remember your league fee must be paid in full by 5/5. For the first time in history, we have teams on a waiting list ready to join us and they will be notified on Thursday if there is room for them or not. Additionally, uniform orders must be placed by Friday morning, 5/7 at 8:00 a.m. So bring your cash, personal check, sponsor check, money order or spare change to the meeting to lock up your spot. Teams on the waiting list should also bring their fees and rosters to insure their placement if openings arise.

This year’s participation will be at an all time high and referees are always needed. If you know someone who’s interested please have him call Patty. Refs do not have to be certified to work in the RBVL. In fact, many refs have been quite successful with a strong playing background (college and high school) and limited referee experience.

Hopefully, everyone has already marked his or her calendars with these important dates:

5/5 – final pre-season league meeting

5/26 – first practice night on the beach. Uniforms and schedules will be given out at that time. Nets will be available for everyone. This is also the first party night of the year so keep your schedule open.

6/2 - opening day. Play will continue every Wednesday until 8/9.

8/14 - league championships. Remember this is a Saturday. Keep your schedule clear.

9/17 – league awards dinner at the Beach Club with "Head Over Heels" (back by popular demand).

If you have any questions before the meeting please call Patty Moule at 212-604-7087. You can leave a detailed message anytime at this number. See you on 5/5.
