Will we have practices or matches during Spring Break?
We do have the Varsity Stow Super-Scrimmage scheduled on the first Saturday of Spring Break, March 19th. It is not mandatory each player be there; however, it would be encouraged to participate. I do not have any required practices or matches scheduled during March 21st-25th. There will be optional practices and open gyms.
Can a player participate in the Boys’ Volleyball Club if he is participating in another Spring Sport?
Since we will be practicing in the evenings and this is a club sport, this may allow some to participate in two different Spring Sports. This is a tricky question, because we realize this is a new experience for many people and we want to provide an opportunity for anyone interested. We will welcome all interested players; however, we will respect those that make this commitment their sole priority.
Will we welcome interested players after cuts are made from other Spring Sports?
The answer is yes; however, once teams have been announced and decided within our program (approximately March 11th), there may not be spots available.
What is the expect cost to participate?
This is a club sport, so we will have a Pay-to-Play fee of $200* (Must sell at least 4 Fundraising Tickets) per player or $300 per family. The cost to play is $300, if no Fundraising Tickets have been sold. This fee is not tied to any other school sport of any kind.
Is the Pay-to-Play fee due in full at Tryouts?
The answer is no; however, each player will be expected to pay in full by March 27th.
What time will practices be?
We will have to be somewhat flexible during the season, especially early in the season. Right now our practices will be from 6:00-8:00 PM, Monday thru Thursday and 4:00-6:00 PM, on Thursdays..
Where will the matches be?
We will have a series of Home and Away matches during the season. Most of the JV matches will begin at either 6:00 or 6:30 PM and then the Varsity matches will begin immediately after around 7:00 or 7:30 PM. We will be practicing and playing in the Main Gym at Jackson High School.
What equipment will players need?
Uniforms will be provided for the team. Each player will need to wear proper court shoes or volleyball shoes. Each player will have the option to wear knee pads as well. We will have special pricing available for shoes and knee pads with Elite Sports Ohio, so please ask for more details if needed.
Will Varsity players be eligible for Varsity letters?
NEW!!! We are now able to provide Varsity letters and JV pins to our athletes, as long as they meet the minimum requirements set out by Jackson High School Athletics.
Does the Boys' Volleyball Program count as a Required Spring Sport for athletes?
Yes! Each player will need to fill out the required Waiver form that can be found on our web page under forms.
Transportation to Away matches?
Since we are a "Club" sport at Jackson, we are responsible for our own transportation. Last year we had families drive to away matches and that worked out just fine; however, we are looking at purchasing Jackson Busses to get us to our away matches. We will have to see how aur finances are holding out when we start the season.
