It was a golden start to the OVA season for Durham Rebels Crusaders as they swept through the 17U Provincial Cup undefeated. Coach Paul was with his 17U team so assistant coach Deb took the reigns this weekend and the team did not disappoint. Losing just one set all day the Crusaders proved it’s not where you start (seeded 7th) but where you finish. It was a 16U vs 16U gold medal final as the Crusaders met up with their neighbours from Durham Attack Power. The Crusaders defeated Power 25-12, 25-15 earning themselves the gold medal and the right to move up to the 17U Championship division for the Challenge Cup in December. Congratulations coaches and players!
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!
