I don't see an issue with moving it closer to high school tryouts.
Julie Jewell Grays Harbor
01:08:01
In our area the gym floors are often redone end of July first of August
Robyn
01:08:28
yes it is no contact
Aaron Young
01:10:56
Or the healthy mental way of looking at things as a teacher.
Catherine Tiffany
01:12:16
Yes, Aaron
Catherine Tiffany
01:15:28
And for non-profits we have to be careful about how much money we carry over
Cindy (PS)
01:16:03
you can carry over up to 3x's your operating budget and remain a nonprofit
Catherine Tiffany
01:16:50
Remember that most states start school before Labor Day. We run into these same issues with state- mandated testing lol
Catherine Tiffany
01:19:15
Thanks for that insight, Kathleen. The connection piece is so important to us
Kathleen Brown
01:24:16
Those girls who we would have lost because of high school season may be more inclined to continue their passion if they know they have an opportunity to play club with a team they get to choose. Sorry that I didn't make that clear.
Catherine Tiffany
01:24:59
And we need to realize WIAA rules are different from other state rules
Aaron Young
01:25:25
No I get that Kathleen and I think for a lot of girls you are correct. I'm just thinking about the ones who decide they DON'T want to go back to playing and now feel like they're stuck. Are clubs going to refund any collected dues to those girls or are they now stuck playing a sport that they no longer love.
Robyn
01:25:58
and just because the tryouts change doesn't mean that your club has to offer tryouts then
Aaron Young
01:26:44
We don't HAVE to, but if we don't we risk losing the best players to the bigger clubs who are doing summer tryouts.
Aaron Young
01:27:10
It's already a big uphill battle for a small club to retain the top players.
Catherine Tiffany
01:29:35
Great point
Nate White Oly Reign
01:32:17
Is the LOC Still 72 Hours if we have summer tryouts?
Dardo
01:38:57
Thank you very much Kathleen.!
Robyn
01:43:28
texas
Aaron Young
01:53:08
So that's kind of like what Dardo was suggesting it sounds like.
Amanda Sewell
02:02:26
We always encourage families to take the 72 hours to make their choice because it's a financial and time commitment. We want to make sure that when they commit to our club they are all in and they feel like it's the right place and culture for them.
Julie Jewell Grays Harbor
02:06:00
What Dragan just described is how GHVBC does it
Genevieve Knoppi
02:09:58
72 hours is ok for us at Northwest Juniors, 48 would be even better. From our perspective we would appreciate families doing more homework about their #1 and #2 club picks BEORE tryouts begin to help the process move along faster.

Seattle Volleyball Academy on board for July tryouts!
Maria Brauner
02:18:39
Pjs says yes
Andrew Stephens
02:19:05
I'm in favor of it
Julie Jewell Grays Harbor
02:19:06
I don't think GHVBC would do a summer tryout.
mandy (dragons VBC)
02:19:21
Dragons is a yes
Amanda Sewell
02:20:41
ITVC is good either way.
Genevieve Knoppi
02:20:53
No comment from nwjrs officially until we can connect with Tony Miranda again.We would be interested in more data regarding summer tryout and how that would operate.
Theresa-Valley View
02:21:01
Valley View is a no for summer tryouts
Dardo
02:25:47
SoV a NO
Aaron Young
02:27:37
Skagit is against it because I think it hurts the small clubs and benefits the big ones, but I also understand that the bigger clubs feed more money and players into the tournaments so their opinions are probably more valuable.
Amanda Sewell
02:29:58
Haha
mandy (dragons VBC)
02:34:53
Hahaha

I’m new to this community but it sounds like this topic on summer tryouts has been discussed for years and we just need to trust in our region leadership and their research. Club to club can end up doing what they want in the end.
Amanda Sewell
02:37:44
Thank you for everything you guys do!

Thank you Cindy for trying to get this done!
