Volleyball registration update, as of May 17, 2013:
When we reach the late stages of registration (now), we attempt to get to even groups of four teams in each division (16, 20, 24, etc.) So when we reach a multiple of four we put a “soft hold” on registration. That means we continue to accept registrations, but those additional teams will be accepted only if we get four additional registrations, to bring in a full group of four. If you are one of those teams on the waiting list, and you are not ultimately accepted, we will promptly refund your fees.
- 12’s: We have 13. Accepting 3 more teams, then we will start a waiting list.
- 14AB: We have 16. Soft hold in place. We can accept a full group of four.
- 14C: We have 16. Soft hold in place. We can accept a full group of four.
- 16AB: We have 12. Soft hold in place. We can accept a full group of four more teams in either 16AB and/or 16C.
- 16C: We have 12. Soft hold in place. We can accept a full group of four more teams in either 16AB and/or 16C.
If both 16AB and 16C increase to 16, we will separate those divisions. If not, they will be combined.
- 18AB: We have 21. Accepting 3 more teams, then we will start a waiting list.
- 18C: We have 17. Accepting 3 more teams, then we will start a waiting list.
