17U Rampage Achieve Success in Select Division

It was a tough battle for Rebels Rampage right from the 9 a.m. starting whistle. Rampage was competing in the highly competitive 17UG Select Division of the OVA Provincial Cup at Durham College-UOIT in Oshawa. In their first match of the day, Rampage found themselves in a back-and-forth showdown with E381 that eventually resulted in a 35-37 , 20-25 win for Etobicoke. Their next game against Pakmen would be no different resulting in a 3 set game that ended in a 16-18 loss for Rampage. While Rampage put on a great fight in the morning, they were unable to secure a win but when it came to that must-win game in the afternoon against Aurora Storm, Rampage was able to pull it off giving them hope to be able to remain in the Select Division for their next tournament.  Following their success against Storm, Rampage would get a second crack at E381 and while it would be another back-and-forth game going 3 sets, Rampage prevailed for this one in another nail biting 15-13 final. Congratulations to the team and coaches on playing some amazing volleyball and good luck this weekend at the 18U Provincial Cup in Oshawa.

A special thank you to Rampage families for hosting this tournament and the Durham College Lords men’s and women’s volleyball teams who provided scorekeeping and lining duties; it was a true community effort!

Rampage would like to give a special shout out to its team sponsors who came on board in October. Don’t forget to consider these generous companies when you’re in the market for their product or service.

OVA Offer Period Opens at 10 p.m. this Evening

Dear Parent:

Thank you for registering your son or daughter for our 2018/2019 volleyball tryouts. As of 10 p.m. this evening, our coaches may begin sending offers by e-mail. As previously communicated, work and family schedules may prevent some coaches from starting the offer process right at 10 p.m.

We know this year’s tryout process has been somewhat stressful for many young athletes and thank you for your patience as we do our best to adhere to the OVA’s tryout guidelines while working as quickly as possible to roster teams and communicate information to those awaiting tryout results.

Athletes receiving offers will have up to 24 hours from the time stamp on their email to respond to an offer. We kindly request that athletes respond to their offer once a decision is made so other young athletes are not made to wait unnecessarily. Once a team is fully rostered, we will notify all tryout participants (this may take up to 48 hours — or more — depending on athlete offer response time). Not all athletes will receive an offer.

In testing our offer system, we would like to point out a few important details:

  • Some smartphones show a blank OVA offer form attached to the email. If your child’s offer form is blank, please try opening your email on another device or a computer
  • If responding for more than one athlete in your family, please close your browser completely after submitting each response.
  • If you have difficulty completing and submitting your response, simply reply to the email clearly indicating your decision

As offer responses are received, there may be opportunity for upward movement in some girls’ divisions where there are multiple teams. If your daughter initially accepted an offer for a tier 2 or tier 3 team, you will be contacted if a position on the first or second team opens up and she is being considered for a spot on that team.

Thank you for considering Durham Rebels Volleyball Club for your child. We hope all athletes find a place to play volleyball this year and wish everyone a great season ahead!
