Recruiting restrictions updated 2010-06-16 15:22 A letter has been mailed to all club directors with some pertinent information on recruiting, new presidents day event and USA Volleyball fee increase. Click on Read More to see the content of the letter. Dear Club Rep,

We hope that you are enjoying your summer and have a chance to take a little bit time off from volleyball. However, the game is never very far from our minds and we would like to bring a few things to your attention.

As decided in last year’s juniors club director meeting and confirmed by the HOA board; there is a no-recruitment period in effect for all members until the expiration of the 2009-10 membership, which is. September 1. Until then, members remain part of their club unless a formal transfer takes place. 

This means that up till September 1, 2010 no recruitment activities (including sanctioned or unsanctioned Open Gyms) by any club are allowed. Clubs can develop activities for their own members only, but not for members of other clubs. Coaches are allowed to do private lessons with players from other clubs if solicited by the player/parents. Private lessons are restricted to a maximum of 3 players per session.

Other activities developed by clubs in the period before September 1, involving players from other clubs, need written approval from the HOA office and cannot be for recruitment purposes.

The annual Junior Club Rep meeting will be held on Sunday, August 8 at 10 am at the HOA office. At this meeting a proposal to disallow any Open Gyms in the Kansas City area will be discussed and brought to the HOA board for approval. 
Also, some proposals for the 2011-12 season will be discussed, including having an early tryout period in mid-July, followed by a quiet period until November.

The first days of allowed tryouts for the 2010-11 season are Saturday, November 6 for the age divisions 14 and younger and Saturday, November 13 for the age groups 15 and older.

The bad news for the upcoming season is that USA Volleyball has increased its registration fees $10 per member. This will result in a $50 registration fee for HOA members. We would like to point out that none of this increase will go to the region. Taking into account that we do not have team or club fees and only charge $10 per background screen where many regions charge $20, our region fees will remain among the lowest in the country.

We also want to bring to your attention that HOA is starting a new event. On February 19, 20 and 21 (presidents day) we will run a three-day tournament at the Kansas City Convention Center. The fee for this event will be around $500 per team and we will not charge at the door. Early registration will start mid-July so teams can secure a spot into the tournament, pending the completion of the registration process. Several of the top HOA clubs have already verbally committed and will be playing in the tournament. We expect to have between 200 and 300 teams the first year. More details will be posted on HOA website in the next few months.

Have a great summer and we will see you all again soon.

Recruitment - - - updated 2010-07-21 09:28 Another clarification on recruitment! Until September 1, all players are still a member of the club they played with the past season. Clubs can talk with the players that are member of their club about the upcoming season. Clubs (including coaches, parents etc.) cannot talk with players from other clubs about joining their club. PARENTS: DO NOT CONTACT OTHER CLUBS UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1. If parents contact clubs with questions, refer those parents to your website for information on tryouts, club info etc. and tell them that they are not to contact clubs/coaches. THE INTEND OF THE RULES ARE CLEAR! CLUBS AND INDIVIDUALS HAVE TO STOP TRYING TO GET AN ADVANTAGE OVER OTHERS! IT IS UNETHICAL AND NOT THE LESSON WE WANT TO TEACH THE KIDS INVOLVED IN THE SPORT.
