The 2012 women’s volleyball league sponsored by the Cllintonville Park and Recreation Department is now beginning to organize.
Play in this league is not scheduled to begin until January, but the department wants to have most of the organization done for it prior to the upcoming holidays. Any team interested in playing in the league needs to express its interest at this time.
Teams do so by submitting a $25 fee to the department, along with the name, address and phone number of the team captain. Teams should also indicate their division preference of A or B, with B being the lower skilled division.
There is no difference in the rules between the two divisions and depending on the number of teams that sign up and their division preference two divisions may be organized.
The $25 signup fee can be submitted to City Hall, 50 10th St., or the Park and Recreation Department at the Clintonville Rec Center, 55 E. 12th St. The initial entry deadline is 4:30 pm Monday November 28th. An extended deadline of Friday Dec. 3rd, 4:30 pm has also been established, but teams signing up after 4:30 November 28th will be assessed a $50 penalty fee, which unlike the initial $25 fee paid, will not be applied toward the final team fee total. The final amount of the team fee will be determined when the number of teams are known and schedule worked out.
The league will play on Monday nights at Longfellow School Gymnasium, as well as the Middle School Gymnasium as needed, starting in early to mid-January. A second night of the week may be necessary depending on gym availability and the number of teams that sign up to play in the league. All players listed on the roster must be out of high school.
Call the department at 823-7660 for more information. Officials are needed for this league as well as the men’s league that will begin play in February. Anyone interested in working as an official is encouraged to contact the department. Training is available.
