If there are no parents available to help run a court, either myself or one of the kids sitting off will forego their duties as the shaggers/scorekeepers and take on the job of entering in the free balls and/or scorekeeping.
*We will have 5-6 balls on each court so the sequences/games can go fairly quickly and stay on time.
Thursdays - Youth 2's League (15U - 18U): Volleyball Alberta Youth 2’s Leagues are a fun way to be physically active during the summer months. It provides an opportunity for youth to practice their skills in a game-play structure. Participants register in 2’s (co-ed or same gender) and will play 4 -1 set each Thursday. The last league night will consist of playoffs and prizes will be given.
- a $60 default deposit is required over and above the registration fee.
-default fees are charged in increments of $20
-Each time a team does not show up $20 will be deducted from the deposit that is refunded at the end of the league play (i.e. if a team misses two league nights then the refund will be $20)
-The default deposited will be refunded in full at the end of the season if there are no defaults.

General Weather information:
The sessions will run in all weather conditions unless there is lightning or severe rain making it unsafe to play. Always show up to games even if it is raining as weather can change very quickly. Assume all games are a go unless otherwise stated through email or on the VA website.
You can check if a league night will be canceled by looking on the Volleyball Alberta Website: http://www.volleyballalberta.ca/ (both the ticker on the front page and your specific beach page), VA twitter account, or by email.
We will be following the 30/20 Rule during game play which was set out by the Canada Safety Council.
If thunder is heard within 30 seconds of seeing lightning, games will be postponed. All participants must leave the playing area and seek shelter in a building or an automobile. Never stand under trees, in an open field, or under an umbrella. Games will resume 20 minutes after the thunder and lightning have moved away. If thunder and lightning are still present 20 minutes after, the game will be cancelled and the score counts as it was when the game was stopped. Halfway point of the game must be reached (11 points by one team) for the game to count towards the league standing.
