Referee and Score Keeping Clinics

Cobb Atlanta will be offering Referee and Scorekeeping training during December and January. It is important for our players to receive proper training so that they can properly referee and scorekeep at tournaments. 
 
While every player is required to attend and receive certification, we will be offering multiple dates and opportunities for players to attend. Players must register for their preferred time as seating is limited.
 
11s-14s: MUST attend a class at CAJ
 
15s-18s new to CAJ: MUST attend a class at CAJ
15s-18s returning CAJ Players: May either attend the class at CAJ or complete the online course - more information regarding the online course will be available in the coming weeks. **It is easier to come to CAJ**
 
Please be advised: Even if you have previously played club volleyball elsewhere, if this is your first season with CAJ, you must attend a class at Cobb Atlanta. All classes will be held upstairs in the player/parent lounge of the Cobb Atlanta facility.

Pre-Season Fitness Level Testing

At the beginning of each club season, all Cobb Atlanta club players are tested on the following 6 exercises: 

 

·Vertical Jump

·Broad Jump

·T-Drill

·Touch 6

·Pushups

·Box Test

 

 

Each of these exercises test a different aspect of a player's fitness level, and the results of these assessments give each player and Cobb Atlanta's fitness instructors baseline data for us to start the season with.   The assessments also provide us with a more complete understanding about each player's strengths, and in which areas  they need to improve. 

 

In the fitness area there are "Fitness Level Boards" where players may achieve different levels based on their scores on the above 6 tests, including "Overall Fitness Levels." These levels are designed to not only recognize athletic achievements but to help each player stay motivated throughout the season during fitness sessions and take home fitness each week, whichever is applicable to their team.  To make an "overall level" a player must achieve levels in several of the individual categories. 

 

Over the next few Saturday's each team is assigned a date and time to attend fitness evaluations. That schedule is attached to this email, as well as on your team's calendar on the Cobb Atlanta website. Pre-Season fitness testing is mandatory for each athlete at Cobb Atlanta, so if your daughter is unable to attend her team's assigned time, please register her for one of the  "make-up" slots that are posted.  

 

There will be opportunities for players to retest every 6 weeks to see the growth and improvement they have made. These retesting dates will be listed on the calendar and will not be mandatory, but it is a great chance to see a player's progression throughout the season.

2018-2019 Club Tryout Information

Cobb Atlanta is governed by Southern Regional Volleyball Association (SRVA). This year, SRVA has changed their policies to move from permitting clubs to hold their Commitment Night (the first time any club can require payment) within 10 days of the first day of tryouts to 5 days following the first day of tryouts.

 

For 14s & Under, the first day any SRVA club can hold tryouts is Saturday, October 13 making Commitment Night on Thursday, October 18. Clubs may have tryouts and Commitment Night any time after the dates listed, just not any time before. 

For 15s & Up, the first day we can hold tryouts is Sunday, November 4 (following GHSA State Finals on Saturday, November 3) with Commitment Night on or after Friday, November 9. 

 

We will have separate tryouts for Travel, ATL, and Premier Teams. Online registration for tryouts is preferred but we will accept in-person walk ups. The online registration will close 24-hours before tryouts. To register online, you must first create an user account on our website in addition to creating a Player Profile, if you have not done so already.

Cobb Atlanta Commitment Day/Night Schedule

Travel & ATL - 14s & Under - Commitment Night: Thursday, October 18

Premier - 14s & Under - Commitment Day: Sunday, October 21

Travel - 15s & Up - Commitment Night: Friday, November 9

ATL - 15s & Up - Commitment Day: Saturday, November 10

 

Per the SRVA rules, a player may either accept an offer, reject an offer, or say maybe to an offer. If a player does not reject an offer - meaning they say "yes" or "maybe" then the offer must be honored by the club until Commitment Night. The only way the club can give the position to the next player is if the offer is specifically rejected. This rule was written with the intent of allowing an athlete to choose among clubs by not allowing a club to force them to commit. If a club wants to take the chance and extend an offer before Commitment Night, they do so knowing that the only way they can take back the offer is with a clear "no" from the athlete. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS

Because of the new 5-day tryout window, we are having 1-night of tryouts for some age groups. For all travel team tryouts, we will announce the players who earned a spot on the 1's team at the end of the tryout. This year, we will only be offering a maximum of 3 teams at each age group for our travel teams. If we are having a callback tryout for your age group, you are expected to attend both nights of tryouts. We will make cuts after night 1 if there are more than 60 players at tryouts. If you are invited back to Callbacks, you have either earned a spot on the 2s or 3s team or you are guaranteed to be listed as an alternate.

Open House is intended for previous Cobb Atlanta families who just have a few questions about the upcoming season or want to pick up a copy of the 2018-2019 Fee Sheet! There will be separate Parent Information Meetings for those that want to learn what club volleyball is, want the full scoop on the changes for the new season, or what experience we provide our players. Please fill out this RSVP so we have an idea of how many people to expect. Open House is a drop-in event.
