Volleyball Alberta 2020/21 Season

Position as of October 9, 2020                                                                                       
http://www.volleyballalberta.ca/signingpolicy
         
Volleyball Alberta (VA) has adopted an official Signing Process using an offer & commitment process for the 2021 season. The following reasons outline the decision to adopt the new COVID-19 policy:

  • Due to COVID-19 restriction & guidance in Alberta’s Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation relaunch documents
  • Due to facility access challenges
  • Due to safety considerations

Due to the uncertainty of gathering sizes and limitations to facility availability, holding tryouts may post a significant challenge for Clubs, risk to our membership, and be against AHS guidelines.  Volleyball Alberta encourages Clubs to re-sign & open sign as many athletes as possible (maximum of 12 per team) so the need for tryouts is minimized.

Clubs are not permitted to utilize open gyms & identification sessions during the re-signing & open signing periods.  Large participation “high turnover/short-term” formats contradict the newly adopted COVID-19 Signing Policy.  Pre-established fall programs (mini-leagues, etc.) are exempt because they are a current sport cohort for the athlete.  Additional cohorts are not being added, so these are permitted to continue with the recommendation they finish by November 15, allowing a fourteen-day period is in place prior to the start of the indoor season.

Volleyball Alberta Members are obligated to report any potential infractions. If it is determined that an offense has occurred, the Volleyball Alberta Discipline & Complaints Policy will be placed in effect. For more information on Reporting a Potential Infraction.

Athletes are NOT permitted to be part of any USport, CCAA or other Post-Secondary volleyball program for the current season (Sept 2020-May 2021)

 

Definition of Post-Secondary:

Part of a Post-Secondary Volleyball program is defined as training in whole or part with team members of the post-secondary institution that they are attending. If an athlete is attending a post-secondary institution, verification shall be confirmed by the Head Coach of the program. This would include any athlete regardless of their post-secondary eligibility, including those commonly referred to as red-shirts. This does not include intramural programs or club programs within a post-secondary institute.

Tryout Period Policies

  1. The Volleyball Alberta indoor club season of play begins on Sunday November 29, 2020 and ends on May 31, 2021.
  2. Tryouts and training may not commence until Sunday November 29, 2020.
  3. At the start of the upcoming club season, athletes and parents are encouraged to seek out information about different club programs. Frequently asked questions include: club philosophy, coaching philosophy, coaching certification, tryouts, team fees (and an outline of what’s included), practice times/locations, tournament schedules, travel arrangements, club refund policy and extra fees.
  4. Athletes have the right to register with any club and are free to tryout for any team until they have officially signed with a club. Athletes are committed on a yearly basis only and are free to play with another club or team the following season.
  5. The athlete and parent/guardian must sign the necessary documents to make an official commitment to the club. No further communication or contact from other clubs can be made with an athlete once they have signed. The athlete is committed to that club for a minimum of one season (Tryout Period until May 31).
  6. Verbal commitments made at any time are strictly informal as signing the Volleyball Alberta Commitment Form on the Signing Date is the only binding contract recognized by Volleyball Alberta.
  7. If a club is not able to accept all players interested in their program, please direct them to another club/program where they might play. Together we can ensure as many athletes as possible find a place to play and train.
  8. In order to change clubs during the season, a player must request a release from their club administration prior to competing for another team/club. The release must be emailed immediately to Volleyball Alberta at jplakas@volleyballalberta.ca so the athlete’s transfer can be completed.
  9. The tryout period begins on Sunday November 29, 2020. Tryouts may continue after the signing date until all teams have filled their remaining positions. Clubs may not collect any deposits for club fees until the signing date (or later) excluding a tryout fee.
    - For the 13U age class, all tryouts will remain open and athletes will only be able to sign during the Tryout Period.
