Wow, that was a tough one. If you want to know how long this stuff can take – it took over an hour just to put this email together with the web site post and facebook entry… and then my internet dropped out. Apologies for the lateness – the first week is always a nightmare.
We have 51 teams so far this season, with quite a few new teams and a few new organisers as well. the draw is online – but if anyone finds a difference between the linked pdf file and the online version – please let me know. I have made a few updates to catch some of the errors, but it is still possible for some to sneak through.
We had a number of men looking for a team on Tuesday night – if you aren’t in a team already – then please turn up at 7:50pm on Court 3 – we’ll hopefully have enough for a scratch match and be able to organise a couple of teams from them. Pleas pass the word around as I didn’t get all the email addresses and I’m sure there are a few more out there looking for a game.
We have 32 junior Women’s teams – and literally only enough match slots to fit 28.
This week I have 4 of those teams on a bye, and if I can juggle the teams across divisions, it may be possible that there will be 1 bye for each division (junior women). We will be having a look at teams this week to see what we can manage – I am leaning towards moving 1 B Grade team to B Reserve, and a B reserve to C Grade.
If you have teams that will be away for school camps, or excursions or something like that – then please let me know ASAP!
I make a lot of effort to keep byes and duties as even as possible, and finding out late that teams are away makes this very difficult.
Please also note that we allow players to fill in across teams only to avoid a forfeit – if you need more than one then you need to notify me first. If in doubt, then ask.
If you need draw considerations such as a late start, or you have coaches that are coaching multiple teams and you would like their games to be on at separate times – please ask me via email – I may say that’s fine verbally, but I will not be able to remember it when trying to organise over 50 teams. Draw considerations will not be guaranteed, so far there haven’t been too many I haven’t been able to deal with.
If you have any questions, then please check the Premier League website – there is the draw, the results, an about page, a rules page and finally the Fees page.
The first Round draw is up there – and if you look on the results page – you will see the divisions and where your team is currently situated. I say currently as they may change in the next week or to.
Fees haven’t changed. Schools will be invoiced unless otherwise arranged. This will happen during the season (hopefully not the end of it like last season). School teams pay the early rate.
Everyone will have to pay the VQ registration fee this season as it starts from the beginning for the year. If you are registered with Volleyball QLD through USQ or another affiliated club, then please let us know to avoid paying for it twice – email would be best at this stage.
If you have signed up to the MyTeam website, then you should have already filled out your registration details. I am working on being able to edit these details, but it is a lower priority than other things at the moment.
If you have NOT signed up, then you need to do so as soon as possible to ensure that you are covered by insurance. myteam.tva.org.au
I’m sure I have missed things, so please feel free to ask any questions – after checking the website first!
