When are cuts or the team being made?
November 14th, 21st and 28th are official tryout dates for the boys and girls. We need to evaluate the number of boys and girls that come out in order to make decisions regarding numbers. As coaches we believe that players at this age should be given extended tryouts so coaches can better evaluate attitude, commitment, potential and skill level.
How many players will you keep?
We will probably keep 12 -14 players that will be on a tournament team. We will be keeping an additional 5-7 players that we will encourage to come out to practices. In the past, practice players have had the opportunity to play in one or more tournaments but this is something that is not guaranteed.
Who does Cats volleyball play against?
Cats Volleyball will be playing against similar clubs that share the same club philosophies as we do…keep expenses low, lots of games and getting kids involved. We will be entering a team in approximately 3-4 tournaments.
How much does it cost to play Cats Volleyball?
We are committed to trying to keep the costs down to a minimum. Players on the tournament team in previous years were asked to pay $125.00. Players on the practice team were asked to pay $70.00. No player will ever be denied the opportunity to participate in Cats Volleyball because of financial difficulties.
How will I know if my son or daughter is picked for the team?
Making cuts are the most difficult thing a coach has to do and we ask for your understanding in this matter. Any commitments that your son or daughter has that may interfere with their Cats participation should be expressed to the coaches. We will put the selected team on the RND Scoreboard - https://www.rndpanthers.com/. If selected for the team we ask that you attend a parent / guardian meeting at RND on November 29th at 7:30pm. Fees, Schedules, Cats Philosophy, etc. will be discussed. Please make this meeting a priority as we hope to have one parent / guardian representative per player. Any questions or concerns should be directed to Pat Farrell at work (613 -545-1902 ext. 2513 or email@example.com).
