aau match making

Dale present to our staff. That only helps to grow the game. Otherwise, folks do tend to fall so far behind they cannot catch up. The decision of the disciplinary committee shall be final. The following series of numbers can be used:

No Tobacco! No Alcohol! No Drugs! No Pets!

This week's JVA Coach to Coach Video of the Week by Michigan Elite Volleyball Academy shares a drill that involves pressure, communication, technique, statistics, and building a stronger serve receive game for your team using a 4 point system. I have spent many hours searching for quality multimedia play and drill software. We have one staff and a common goal to create basketball experiences that celebrate athleticism, fair play, good sportsmanship, and community involvement. I would not do more than 2 digits because of how it looks on certain sizes x-small- small. Teams will be registered strictly on the basis of the grade in school for the current school year and school names will be listed on the team roster form. Yes, JVA will cover the cost of your officials' insurance coverage.

Only rostered players, from each of the two teams scheduled to play at the time may sit on the bench. Everyone else must sit with the spectators. It is mandatory for both the head coach and the assistant coaches to attend this meeting. We are serious about percent attendance. Therefore, we are requiring ALL coaches, whether they are an assistant coach or the head coach, to attend the Coaches Meeting.

If you cannot attend, you cannot coach. We are also changing our make-up meeting to have it include a presentation, a video and a rules test. The following are the meeting dates: Please note only t he head coach will be able to pick up the team packet and picture identification will be required. Unsportsmanlike behavior is unacceptable. Any stomping, booing, negative comments, etc. And it must stop in order for the game to continue. The coach is responsible for having his or her team clean the bench area once their game has ended.

Also, once the game is over teams must move off of the court in a timely fashion, so the teams waiting to play in the next game can warm-up. It is just common courtesy and another way to display good sportsmanship. Spectators - cannot storm the court before, during or after a game. In addition, during the game spectators cannot stand at courtside trying to coach or intimidate officials or players on the court.

As a result, the game will be stopped and the coach will be asked to take care of the situation, before the game will start again. It could result in a forfeit. These objects can be a distraction and may interrupt the flow of a game. We can appreciate the fact that spectators fans want to display their support for their team. This can be achieved through applause and positive cheering. While supporting the team of your choice, always remember to be a good sport towards the opposing team.

A code of conduct will be enforced. The Team Rosters shall not be co-ed, must have at least 5 players, and shall not exceed 12 players. In the state of Washington, Sudden Cardiac Arrest training is required, as well as certification.

Once a roster is submitted to the League Office, the listed players are frozen on that team for the 12 game League Season. Further, a player may only appear on one League roster. If a rostered player should decide to leave the team, that he or she was rostered on for the League Season, that player could not place his or her name on the Interested Players List nor could that player join another team.

He or she would have to sit out the remainder of the League Season. The coach must be notified of this situation, it is the courteous thing to do.

If a submitted Team Roster has less than eight registered players, a Coach may add non-rostered players at any time to have the Roster reflect eight players. A jersey number will be required as well. The team coach will also be required to provide the office with a written request each time he or she adds a player to the team roster. The team coach must keep the Consent to Medical Treatment form.

The player being added will not be cleared to play until cleared by the office. On the second Monday of December of each league season, the team roster will freeze and the coach who has kept his team at less than eight players will not be allowed to add a late player. He will finish the season with the number rostered at that time. After the Open Registration Period deadline, completed team rosters are frozen until October From this date through October 28, only non-rostered players may be added to increase roster size up to a maximum of twelve players during the designated Player Addition Period.

Please remember that all rostered players are committed to that team for the duration of the League season and may not switch teams. Teams are grade-based and players may play a grade up, but are not allowed to play down, no age exceptions. If you require additional player forms, please contact the League Office. All players added to teams during this period must be accompanied by a written request from the coach.

The players added during the Add Period will be eligible to participate in all twelve 12 of the scheduled league games as well as the three 3 tournaments. No player will be allowed to switch teams once he or she has been rostered on a team for the current League Season.

It is the responsibility of the scorekeeper to fill out the score sheet properly and completely for each game. Please provide the gym name, court number and the time of the game. The scorekeeper for each team will be responsible for obtaining the signatures of both game officials on the score sheet. It is the responsibility of each team scorekeeper to turn in the score sheet to the score clock operator at the end of each game. The scoreclock operator will be the official scorekeeper of record.

It is required that the scorekeeper from each team compare their scorebooks at the end of each quarter regarding statistics, including fouls and points, and be in agreement. The current High School Federation Rules for boys and girls govern all games, with the following deviations:. Any technical foul , intentional foul or flagrant foul, awards an automatic two points to the opposing team and the ball out-of-bounds.

The person committing a flagrant foul will be ejected from the game. Any team with a score advantage of 15 points is required to discontinue the use of a full court press. After one warning from the official, if the press is not discontinued, a technical foul will be called on the offending coach. Girls - second shot clock, and Boys - second clock when available. No game will end in a tie.

Overtime in games is 3 minutes with one full second time-out, no carry-overs. Continue with the 3-minute overtimes until the tie is broken. If a team is more than ten minutes late for a scheduled game that game shall result in a forfeit ; however the opposing team must be at the facility at the scheduled time.

The final score will be 15 — 0. If a team forfeits a scheduled league game, that team shall not be eligible for the championship bracket. If a team forfeits a scheduled tournament game, and has the same record as another team, the team with the forfeit will be seeded below the team with the same record. The team forfeiting a game may also be subject to further disciplinary action. Once schedules are provided to the coaches the league or tournament schedule is set, game time switches will not be allowed.

The schedules are provided to coaches in a timely manner. It is up to each coach to ensure that the team is informed of the team schedule and that they will field a team for each game that they are scheduled to play.

It is the responsibility of each coach to complete his or her team roster with an adequate number of players in order to avoid the forfeit of a game. Best record in head-to-head competition. Best record against common opponents.

Best record within your division. The fewest points allowed in games between the teams that are tied including head-to-head games. The fewest points allowed in games against common opponents including head-to-head games. Point differential in games between the teams that are tied including head-to-head games.

The point differential counted in any one game will be no higher than Point differential in games against common opponents including head-to-head games. If a division has an odd number of teams, a team or teams may receive a single extra scheduled game in the regular season, prior to League Playoffs, due to scheduling needs. In those cases, for seeding purposes, the League Office will not be able to utilize overall winning percentage or records to separate two teams that are one-half game apart in the standings due to those teams having played a different number of games.

In those instances, we will eliminate those factors and start with head-to-head competition as the first tiebreaker, moving down the list of tiebreakers from there until the tie is broken.

For example, in a division where one team is and the other is because nine games is the norm for that division prior to playoffs the one team received an extra game due to scheduling needs in a division with an odd number of teams , we would not use overall record or winning percentage to determine the higher seed in the one-half game separation.

If these teams played each other, whoever won would be the higher seed. Fewest points allowed in games between the teams that are tied including head-to-head games.

Fewest points allowed in games against common opponents including head-to-head games. Point differential in games against common opponents including head-to-head games — Point differential counted in any one game will be no higher than Working together, we form a great team. Remember what Coach K of Duke said: Then, winning takes care of itself.

Communication, Conduct, and Sportsmanship: Spokane AAU Basketball has adopted the following disciplinary policy: Fees are non-refundable — except when there are not enough teams to form a league for a specific grade level or when there are too many teams in a specific grade level exceeding the space available Membership is required before team members and coaches are eligible to participate in practice, league or tournament play, therefore all players and coaches must possess a current AAU card to participate in AAU sanctioned events.

Each team must provide for each of its players the following: November 2 at 6: November 7 at 5: Team Mascot and Banners: Team Rosters Smaller Than 8 Players: The current High School Federation Rules for boys and girls govern all games, with the following deviations: Are there benefits of equal play versus best players get the majority of playing time? What are the pros and cons of positional training for younger teams?

Most clubs in our area try to make playing time as even as possible. We believe it is better to limit the playing time of players that we don't like, or players that have difficult parents.

In fact, if I have a player that is not getting playing time, parents know they can get their daughter in the match if they bring me a grande soy latte in the morning, or a nice cold can of squirt in the afternoon. I hope that helps! Please give me some suggestions on how to fairly and effectively accommodate players on my team that play another sport besides volleyball during the club season?

The first thing I would recommend is for the coach and the athlete and family to acknowledge that if some training time is missed for the other sport, that athlete will likely not progress as fast as her teammates that don't miss any practice. Also, there is a cost physically to the player with the amount of jumping and other activity she is doing while playing two sports and measures should be taken to make sure that she is not at risk of overuse injuries.

A third area to discuss is the playing time issues when a player is missing some training time to play the other sport. All three of these areas need to be discussed and understood by the parties. After that is established and understood by all, we believe it is important to identify how each type of conflict will be resolved. For example, if there is a volleyball practice and a practice of the other sport, how will that be resolved? What about a volleyball practice and the other sport's competition?

What about a volleyball competition and the other sport's practice, and finally, what happens when both sports have competitions at the same time? As long as both sports' coaches, the player, and the parents all have a clear understanding of all of the above, it should prevent too many problems.

When training younger players what sort of nutritional advice should you give them to help them keep growing and maintain their energy level during practices and competition? Here are a couple helpful websites with more information: If we have a player that cannot afford to pay our full cost, what ideas are out there to provide financial assistance to that player in order for her to be able to play?

The occurrence of this situation is definitely on the rise with the struggling economy and the rising costs of club. We Triangle Volleyball Club employ several options. Secondly, we have a scrip-based fundraiser program that anyone receiving financial aid is required to participate in. Thirdly, we provide scholarship that is need-based.

We fund scholarships through club savings via the Scrip program, member donations, and a specified percent of overall club budget. A tip when awarding scholarships- we apply the scholarship as a match against their own payments.

For every dollar they pay they are awarded a dollar in scholarship throughout the course of the season. It keeps their obligation in perspective. We also require regular payments, regardless of amounts. Otherwise, folks do tend to fall so far behind they cannot catch up. I am having difficulty managing a parent who thinks his daughter should be getting more playing time. It's starting to impair our team and families positive dynamic.

What advice would you give to me, a new coach, to be respectful but rectify the situation? First, I would want to make sure that the parent understands the club's position on playing time. Is it equal, is it not guaranteed but earned?

Assuming that it is not equal but earned, make sure that the player clearly understands what the player must do to earn more playing time. If the player is confused, then that is a problem. If the player is aware by the coach of the plan for more playing time the coach has done their job. Protocol with the issue of an upset parent also comes into play. Is there any little things a club can institute to create a culture of inclusiveness within the club?

What makes your players feel they are part of a club besides being on the team? Obviously establishing and maintaining a strong club culture must start at the top and trickle down. That means administrators and coaches must first value and implement a structure that seeks to find commonality and make connections within the community between staff, athletes, and parents.

We talk about Club ALL the time. Having a common training place definitely helps but we do many??? Signing Night Celebration to kick off season. We match teams with like travel schedules so they support each other on the road.

This is alsoour picture day. Ball Control camp starts every season. How we start practice-circled up sharing exciting news [collegecommitments, player awards, etc. Uniform order at tournaments. Supporting each other at competition. Learning the same thing in the sameway connects athletes. We travel as a club??? There is so much MORE???. How many clubs out there are using advanced training equipment such as the Solo Spike or Air Cat?

We Houston Juniors use the Accuspike system in our building. During our training cycles involving position work we have 2 machines set up so that we can maximize the reps available to our hitters. We also use the machines during some of our camps when we need to maximize the reps on limited space. We usually explain to the athletes how to use the equipment then station a coach next to each machine to give feedback to the athletes. Are there any clubs that have a practice time more than 3 hours a session?

Are there clubs that practice 4 or 5 days a week? Yes, there are times that a practice might run more than 3 hours and also times when a club team will practice up to days in a week.

The first part of the question regarding the length of the individual practice will depend on what the goal of the training session is.

For a session to last 4 hours it would need to encompass the following: The golden rule for training usually comes down to the higher the volume of work that you are doing time or reps then the lower the level of intensity should be. We would never spend more than minutes of the minute total on what I would call "high intensity-high compressive training".

In regards to the number of days of practice each week it's important to take the following into account. How much is the team competing and what type of surface is the team playing on? What is being done within the practice setting in terms of the "volume vs. Intensity" question that should determine how every training session is structured? How old and how physically developed are the athletes on the team and can they handle consecutive training days?

I would suggest that all coaches attempt to coordinate their training and competitive schedules together to take into account how much recovery time their team is going to have throughout the season. Rest is one of the keys to recovery and a coach must know when rest is needed over training.

On the other hand if a coach is smart and plans accordingly a team can practice x per week as long as each practice has a different emphasis and a well-varied level of intensity. Parents play an important role in player development.

The workshop focuses on helping the athlete respect the game, performance versus outcome and the relationship between athlete, parent, and coach. Many clubs do provide other resources for families in this area and the area of recruiting. It is a good practice to inquire about those services prior to signing up for a club. It is also good to know if there are any additional fees for those services. On the quick attack where should the middle leave in relation to the setter and net for the women's game?

One argument is behind the setter because there will be drift and they will contact the ball inline with the setter. The other argument I have heard is that the middle quick attack approach should be more like a beach approach, legs loaded and ready for a straight up take off with little drift or broad jump. Our quick attack zone floats with the setter. I have my middles mark their starting point for all approaches just off the setters shoulder. This gives the defending middle blocker the same look all the time.

The approach for the quick attack would be straight up. How are teams seeded for tournaments at this time of the year? It is soley based on last years ranking? I will use our power league as an example of how we handle the challenge of seeding teams into the first tournaments of the year. Our power league is the first large tournament in terms of levels of participation for our area.

The outcome of the power league provides the best linear ranking of teams that participate in it from year to year and is used extensively to seed teams into non-power league events throughout the season. Obviously since the season is just getting started, we don??? What we do to seed the initial power league is to rely on a small group of volunteers for each division.

The teams first submit a questionnaire that indicates some things about their past performance, changes to their team rosters plus or minus and their anticipation of where their team will finish in the power league. Of course most coaches think their team will finish high, so that information is not that useful, but we do receive it. What we have found to be the most useful information is the prior year???

We found that clubs will tend to finish in approximately the same place they finished the prior year for each of the age groups. Therefore our best method to complete the initial seeding is to use last year??? Obviously without actual results from the teams this year the seeding at the beginning of the season is more challenging than it will be later in the season. We have found that clubs tend to be pretty consistent rankings from year to year in the same ages, and the biggest challenge is in trying to place teams that we didn???

I hope that is of some help. What is the difference between playing as an open team as opposed to a club team? You do not have to declare yourself an Open or a Club level team with your national governing organization at the start of the season [or frankly at any point in the season] but you do have to select your competitive level when entering events [certainly most larger events].

Questions to ask are: What types of events are you currently playing in and what competitive level do they represent? What level of success have you achieved in club level events? Do you have a team that prefers to win at a slightly lower competitive level or a team that will risk losing to face better competition. Do you have the coaching staff, athletes, training program to prepare your team for competition at the next level?

As we developed competitiveness in our club we began by trying one or two open level events at the older ages. Within a couple years we were able to have all our??? If that level is an ultimate goal at some point you have to simply???

Are you planning to use parents as official scorekeepers during your referee duties? Or are you for some reason wanting parents to keep score in the stands during competition? Are you looking for parents to keep stats for the team and coaches or have the parents keeping stats just for their own the parents??? Open, select, club, challenge what's the difference Most tournaments will divide an age group into more than one division once the number of teams reaches a certain level.

Other tournaments will provide specific competitive divisions in order to provide a qualifying opportunity for the teams in that division to play in another tournament that requires 'qualifying'. One goal of creating different divisions within the same age group is to ensure the best competitive experience possible. It may not be enjoyable or appropriate for a team seeded 1 to play a match against a team that is seeded In most cases, neither team benefits from that type of a mis-match and in some cases someone might even get hurt!

It is usually preferred to match up teams as close in ability as possible to ensure a competitive match that is beneficial for both teams and more enjoyable for the players and fans! Another benefit of creating different divisions within the same age group is to ensure that the process of selecting a champion in that division has integrity.

Tournaments are always limited to a certain number of days or rounds of competition and the larger the field grows, the more challenging it becomes to provide a process to pare the field down to the finalists competing for the championship and you want to ensure every team feels they had a fair shot at getting into that top group. For more information about this tournament, you can visit the tournament website at: The Open Division is the highest, Club Division is the middle, and Classic Division is the lowest level in that tournament.

It is important that you understand the ranking and size of each division before entering a tournament to ensure you have selected the most appropriate level for your teams. The selection of the right competitive level will many times determine the quality of the experience for your teams.

Are there specific guidelines to numbering volleyball jerseys? There are specific guidelines for the size of the s or jerseys per USA. Since we play in both tournaments we go by USA guidelines. The regulation minimum is 4??? We Houston Juniors do 6??? As far as numbering jerseys we only do 1?? I think that is a club preference.

I would not do more than 2 digits because of how it looks on certain sizes x-small- small. For the World tournament in Louisville what time will the afternoon session start on Friday for 17 Open. More tournament information is available on the event page jva. Where can I find information on starting a Volley Tots program in my area? Shannon, I would first look to the current local clubs in your area and see if anyone has one or is interested in starting one. If that does not work you might look into the local park district to see if you can rent a court to get one started or a local club who has a facility and see if they would be open to you beginning one.

From there I would contact the current clubs in the country who have Vtots to ask for help and ideas on teaching tools, what type of equipment you would need to purchase, training models, drills, physical aspects, philosophies, etc I have used soccer academies as my main source of education and then Japan, Brazil, Italy, Canada and some other countries have great YouTube videos with drills for the younger athlete.

I have hours and hours of video so I would be happy to share that with you. We just opened up our GLC Youth Academy this past fall and we have as young as 4 year olds in the program. It has grown very quickly and we are just short of kids involved in our K-7th grade programs since the fall of to current.

This does not include our Youth Academy boys program which has over currently. We run week sessions with 1. The 3rd and 4th graders go weeks, 2 days per week for 1. We have in house play for our K-4th graders and then our 5th and 6th graders play in JVA tournaments. Our K-2nd grade play 2 on 2 with a very low net, our 3rd and 4th graders play 4 on 4 with a 20 x 20 court and 6'6 net and then our 5th and 6th graders play full court, 6 on 6 with a 7' net.

Good luck and if I can help you in anyway you can email me at glv greatlakescenter. How do I learn about starting a small area club with a few teams 12,13,14? Advice is greatly accepted JVA has many resources for starting a volleyball club, as most new clubs begin with only a few teams.

One resource is a blog on Starting a Volleyball Club where a first time club director talks about his experience during his first year. If you are not yet a JVA member you can view more information here http: Let us know where you are located and we can put you in touch with other club directors in your area so you can coordinate tournaments.

Our members are a great resource for each other as we all want each other's clubs to succeed. I have an in-coming freshmen high school camp coming up and would like to start the girls on a few good core strengthening exercises. What would you recommend? I would recommend as listed here: Planks, but at 20 second intervals. Keep it basic, short, and sweet. The Glute bridge is a great exercise to strengthen the hip region. Superman holds, then into a moving superman movement. I am looking for help in setting up a residential camp for next summer, and have just never done it and trying to understand what would be good formatting.

Any help is great. By residential do you mean a satellite camp at a local high school or middle school? Or a camp for commuters? Are their any JVA requirements for score keeping and referee certification?

If so, where would I find this information? If not, are clubs asked to certify their own teams through an honor system?

JVA does not "require" referee and scorekeeper certification. However, under our Club Management Best Practices we do urge all clubs to train their coaches and athletes in the areas of scorekeeper and libero tracker, R2 duties, and line judging. This is an area that we have not addressed in our Club Management Resources but will look to include prior to the beginning of the season.

Is there a simple scheduling program out there for scheduling courts at a facility? It looks as though many clubs use an excel document in google docs and share the document with their staff so everyone can see the court schedule.

I am looking for some sort of software that I can plan practices with diagrams and text to explain the drills to our coaches. Similar to Rotates software, where you can diagram serve receive patterns with arrows and such. I have spent many hours searching for quality multimedia play and drill software. I also wanted the end product to be animation or video. Apple had some dynamic, intuitive diagramming programs some should be listed on the JVA resource page.

However, at that time their operating system did not allow for animated screen capture. In those systems, the end user is required to download the APP in order to watch the coaching videos or animations. I am not sure if the new iOS has resolved that issue and made the tool more share-friendly. I purchased Volleyball Playbook http: I used some free screen capture software and and went to work on building a library. As part of the "flipping the classroom" concept my players would be responsible for reviewing the plan and watching the videos or diagrams.

Many educational experts believe that performing some independent learning before taking part in the practice prepares the learner for the learning.

Here is the template for the practice plan links are broken, but access listed below: JVA does not prevent a player from player for more than one club. It it up to the clubs whether or not they would allow the player to play with both clubs.

The parent should check with the club director to see if they would approve. Any advice on how to recruit, find and hire quality coaches? Do you have a free rec notes or posting in your local paper? If so, use that resource! Also post in the online local paper, CraigsList and Linked In.

Find out if they have club programs, the students are more available to coach. Find out if they have intramural volleyball leagues and hand out flyers on a league night or you might be able to get team captain contacts. Check your local adult volleyball leagues - same thing as above - hand out flyers, get team captain contacts. Are there any grants available to help fund or subsidize the project?

You may want to approach your county, city, school district, park and rec dept. They very often are looking for opportunities to provide quality recreational programming in your community.

In return for program development and management, they maybe willing to partner in your facility. In addition to volleyball camps, clinics, after school programs, etc. Check out the hottest trends in fitness for adults zumba, boot camps, circuit training, etc.

With the current spotlight on youth obesity, youth fitness, these programs could be adapted to youth programs and use vacant time slots and space in your facility. For more information on funding a facility, purchase JVA webinar "Can I Justify a Volleyball Facility" that discusses financing and budgeting for a volleyball facility.

Click here to view webinars http: My team is currently on Saturdays this season and on Sundays. Competition is about the same both days. Any suggestions on how to keep the focused day 2? Justin, Since you mentioned that the competition is about the same on Saturday as it is on Sunday that would tell me that you feel your team is just performing better on Saturday's than they are on Sunday's.

Without knowing any details about your team here are some random thoughts. As a coach are you stressing to your team when they leave the gym on Saturday that Sunday needs to be better? It's always easier to play well on the first day of a tournament since everyone is pretty excited to get in the gym and compete on Day 1.

Possibly review Saturday's play and what you feel like they can improve on and set your goals for Sunday after play is finished on Saturday. Leave the team and each player with a clear and concise explanation of what you are going to expect on Sunday before they leave the gym on Saturday.

During the week do you practice two days in a row exp. Practices should always be far more challenging than your toughest opponent! Are your players well conditioned so a hour turnaround does not create a problem for them from finishing on Saturday afternoon or evening and then possibly having to be back in the gym on Sunday morning. Have you thought about setting "benchmarks" for the team's level of play?

These benchmarks mean the team has to play to a certain level regardless of what day it is and failure to reach those benchmarks results in consequences which are decided by you and the team leadership stairs, sprints, extra passing-digging-attacking reps-etc By doing this you and the team have committed to a "contract" that if broken means extra work for all involved to get the team back to the level that you all feel that you can play at.

These benchmarks should be "realistic" in nature and attainable if the team plays to it's potential. Can you steer me toward a good set of by-laws that I can use as a template to get Morton Storm set up as a c3 not-for-profit organization? We want to start a capital campaign for our own facility and we are told that this our next step. In order to assist Club Directors with starting a club, making financial decisions, and following a business plan, we have templates and examples of legal documents and important forms, including a set of ByLaws shared from a c3 club.

These resources are available in the JVA member resource library. Click here to view jva. What is the ideal floor plan for a 12 court facility with the other things you have going on; pro shop, concessions, offices, etc. I am looking for an ideal floor plan with all the extras besides courts.

What is a typical salary range for club volleyball recruiting coordinators and what do the full responsibilities include? I am not sure the answer can be cut and dry. It is as different as what a club to club pay salary is so different. I feel like if your only job is recruiting and you have two to three 18's teams and ALL your players are getting recruited then you should be paid as a master coach.

If you coach and you only have a few kids recruited a year probably just an additional stipend. I know that I spend anywhere from hours a week talking with either a college coach, a player or a parent. Our typical coach spends 6 hours a week on the floor coaching. Your job should include: Educating parents,players and club coaches on recruiting procedures and follow through that this is done.

You should be doing bi-weekly follow ups with each unsigned player You should be responding to each college that contacts you about a player. You want to know each player and all info about them and each players ability level. You should attend all tourneys and talk with college coaches. I have been presented with the opportunity to invest in a volleyball club that has grown to the point of considering its own facility. What is a typical business relationship in terms of arrangements for protecting the investment of contributors and the return on investment options?

Is a percent of profit the typical arrangement? Jodee, Without knowing all the details here are a couple of questions you might want to ask and then a couple of thoughts on your original question.

Will you have an equity position in the club i. If you are a part-owner then you should share in the profit of the business and you will also share in the risk associated with owning that business so you need to go in with your eyes open to the fact that "profits" are an option as well as "losses. As an investor will you have ownership in everything or just the club or just the facility?

The key is to have clear guidance at the beginning of the relationship on how your investment is going to be returned to you. You can choose to be a "lender" and ask for a set rate of return on your loan over a specific period of time.

Much like a bank acts when it loans money. Normally the riskier the loan the higher rate of return you should receive. If you choose to be a lender then you will need to be clear if your loan is "secured" or "unsecured" which means that there is some type of guarantee given to you or collateral put up so you are confident you will be repaid in full at some point.

You mention "sharing profits" but often in a new business all profits are invested back to grow the business so the management of the company might ask the investors to wave any returns for a period of years so the new company can get on its feet, develop a solid cash flow and start making a profit.

Hope this helps and good luck to you. Feel free to email me with follow up questions. Are the Championship videos available to view again.

If so, where may I find them? Thank you Hi Jim! To view the matches click here and then select the JVA Channel enetlive. I am a member of JVA and I was looking for ideas on recording the kids training with video and playback. What is the hot set up. We want to record, do some analysis watching slow motion action.

Is the iPad the way to go? What apps or software is the best. Any ideas of how to video tape using software or apps to train would be great. Thanks for the assistance.

I think they are the same. Dave Weitl, Washington Volleyball Academy. What do you consider "Good Parking" for a 3 court facility?
