Hello High School Volleyball Players - below is a quick message from Coach Reller! All 9th-12th graders for next season should read!
Another summer season and fall season is fast approaching. I’m very excited to get back in the gym with you as soon as possible! Here are a few announcements below! I hope to see you soon—virtually or in person!
As school winds down, I want to ensure we have our communication plan in place for the summer months. If you haven't already, please make sure you are part of the REMIND group by sending a text to 81010 and send the message "@dutchmenv".
By doing so, this will allow me to communicate in the most efficient way regarding updates to our summer plans. These plans are still in the works but we are waiting for more guidance from the school before sharing information with you.
Melrose VB Coach
The Melrose JO Volleyball Board made the difficult decision on Sunday evening to cancel the 2020 season. Please see the statement below that was sent to all participants on Tuesday, March 24. Additional information will soon be posted. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Hello Melrose JO Volleyball Players and Parents -
It's with great sadness and difficulty that the Melrose JO Board has decided to cancel the rest of the JO volleyball season. As you can imagine, this was a tough decision but given the circumstances we're all facing, we feel it's the right choice at this time.
We were recently made aware we would not be able to host our home tournament for 13-17 teams the weekend of April 4-5, as the school has suspended all activities until at least April 6. We are in the process of notifying all teams that the event is canceled.
For players at the 13-17 level who paid $130 in fees to Melrose JO for the 2020 season, we are determining our final expenses per team. We hired coaches, had several practices (one team played in a tournament), and accumulated additional expenses for these teams (NCR expenses, non-recovered team fees for events, etc.). Once we put together the final numbers, we will be in touch to share how many fee dollars went unused. It's our intent to carry these dollars over to next season's fees as a down payment for each player.
For players who are juniors (Seniors in 2021), we are considering a transfer of any unused fees to this summer's volleyball camp or Build-24 program. More details will soon be provided regarding these unused dollars.
Finally, you may be wondering about the fees paid to NCR for this season, which was essentially $50 per player. We have been made aware that NCR has many administrative costs throughout the season, including liability insurance coverage (which Melrose JO benefits from), online education and many other resources NCR provides to member clubs. For these reasons, we have been told that no refunds of these fees will be made available.
As with any organization, we are navigating through uncharted waters and dealing with this unique time as best we can. We feel awful this season was essentially lost for all the girls over 13 years in the Melrose program. We hope and pray now for our country and anyone affected by COVID-19. Now is a time to stay safe and practice social distancing to minimize the local impact.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions, concerns and additional thoughts. We look forward to working with all of you in the coming year.
