Free Volleyball Session Tonight: Pre-registration REQUIRED

A reminder that anyone attending tonight’s FREE volleyball session is asked to pre-register online. We must cap our attendance and would regret having to turn anyone away who has not pre-registered online. Coach Cassie will lead tonight’s session for athletes born between Sept. 1, 2005 and Dec. 31, 2008.


ThinkPink Weekend a Great Success

Durham Rebels joined forces with the Durham Lords volleyball teams and Invado Volleyball to support the Lords at their home opener on October 27. The Lords took advantage of the large crowd to raise funds for its Think Pink weekend that will support a student-athlete whose family is currently dealing with the recent diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. It was a fun evening watching the Lords take on the Ottawa’s Algonquin Thunder. Players from our 12U Blockade and 12U Crush teams had the honour of joining the women’s team on court during the National Anthem while also getting to toss prizes into the crowd. Thanks to all those who supported our Rebels Club Night and donated to this cause that raised over $1600 – another great sign that our Durham volleyball community is amazing!

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!
