3/25 - Tonight's Activities Canceled!

Parents & Players -

We are going to cancel all activities this evening.   This includes Clinics, Club Practices, SELECT Practices, NEXT League Practices at all locations.  

Virtual Fitness will be ON as scheduled. On-Site Fitness is canceled. Any player previously signed up for on-site fitness will receive credit for tonight's session.

I apologize for the late notice. I have been hoping that the storm would move to the north all day, and we would be fine. With the main part of the storm scheduled to be at CAJ around 7:30, we want everyone to be safe at home instead of switching practices

Thank you for your understanding.

COVID Testing

COVID Testing Information:

WE ARE NO LONGER OFFERING TESTING AS OF 3/7 DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST 

We will be offering testing on Sundays from 4:30pm - 8:30pm.  Unfortunately, we cannot overnight tests to the facility to get processed on Sundays so we will start receiving results on Tuesday morning. 

We will also be offering testing Tuesdays from 4:00pm-5:45pm.  We have moved the end time up to 5:45pm so that we can ship the results that evening and start to receive test results on Wednesday. Hopefully this will allow us to provide you with results faster.

You will enter Door 4 at the front of the building. This is the door that leads directly into the stairwell upstairs (the door to the left of the main front doors). Please go immediately up the stairs into the parent viewing area (NOT the player/parent lounge). Please make sure to space appropriately while waiting and to fill out the QR code indicating who is testing. After completing your test, please exit the back stairway to the main lobby. 

 

If we find that there is congestion, we will go back to signing up for a time.

 

PLEASE FILL OUT THIS GOOGLE FORM BEFORE NOON ON THE DAY OF TESTING.

 

 

Please complete the attached form(s) and bring them with you. It will be most efficient if this form is already completed.  

 

Attached you will find:

Requisition Form for PCR Testing: Please fill first two sections PATIENT INFORMATION and PATIENT INSURANCE and be sure to PRINT and SIGN at the bottom of the page. Should someone be uninsured for whatever reason, please have them fill out the Attestation Form in addition to the requisition form.

Requisition Form for PCR Testing

 

Attestation Form of Uninsured: If the individual is uninsured by no insurance or by being undocumented, we will need to have them sign this Attestation Form verifying they do not have insurance in addition to the Requisition Form. We do NOT ask if they are undocumented, it simply will attest they are uninsured, no questions asked. Please have this form printed and stapled to the Requisition Form.

Attestation Form of Uninsured

 

If these forms are NOT fully completed it will delay your results. We will start to receive results in 24-48 hours. All negative results will receive an email, and any positive results will receive a call from our COVID coordinator or our director.

Matches will take place on January 9th, at McCleskey Middle School. Teams will play one match (the best of three). There will be an hour of play time per team. Only 2 spectators per athlete will be allowed to watch. Parents will need to bring your own chair and wear a mask. There will be no water fountains available, so players need enough water to last them throughout the scrimmage. If your team is not playing, we ask that all spectators, including the team, please wait outside. There is a time buffer put in place internally for ball and court sanitization.

2020 Commitment Night Details!

Congratulations, and welcome to Cobb Atlanta for the 2020-2021 Season!

 

We are very excited to kick off our season and see you all at Commitment Night on Friday, November 13th.   Since Commitment Night will look different this year, we appreciate your patience as we go through the night.  

 

Commitment Night is the first time our teams are entirely together, and while we have to do it COVID-19 Style this year, we hope it’s still an excellent event for you and your player.   The purpose of Commitment Night is to welcome your player and family to CAJ for the season, start our uniform ordering process, and take care of 95% of our administrative items.  We know it’s a lot, and we promise to be there to guide you through it.  Teams will also select their uniform numbers at Commitment Night. The details of this year’s commitment night are in this email. 

 

Information regarding our administrative forms will be sent Thursday AM.

 

Date/Time:

 

Friday, November 13th

Cobb Atlanta Volleyball 

1880 West Oak Parkway #218

Marietta, GA 30062

Team arrival times are at the bottom of this email.

 

Just a reminder that we have plenty of parking in the back of the building.

 

What to Expect:

Our 2020-2021 commitment night will look different than in the past!

 

We have designed this experience so all attendees can effectively practice social distancing while still experiencing the night's excitement. Each team is assigned a designated time. Punctuality is crucial to allow ample time to complete all necessary forms and tasks within your team’s time slot. Late arrival will result in the teams after yours starting late, so again please be courteous to your fellow Cobb Atlanta families and coaches by arriving on time! You will enter the front of the building and exit out of the back. We recommend having your player wear clothing that will allow a T-shirt to slip over for player headshots. Before you enter the building, our staff will complete temperature checks, and you will fill out our COVID-19 survey. Finally, we ask that you and your player put on a mask before entry!

 

Once you enter the building, you will follow a path that will take you to multiple stations throughout Court 1, Court 2, and Court 3 before you exit out the back of Court 3.    Be sure to check out our numerous photo stations throughout the gym as you make your way through.

 

COURT # 1

  • You will enter into Court # 1, where you will pick up your CAJ SWAG bag and a commitment shirt.

    • In the SWAG bag will be a folder with information for commitment night and about Cobb Atlanta in general. All other documents will be accessed virtually.

  • Commitment Night t-shirt sizes are comparable to a standard t-shirt. 

  • Players will be directed into our bathroom so they can change into their commitment night shirt.

  • Uniform Try-On

    • If you are a returning player, we recommend trying on your uniform from previous years to get an idea of what size you need. We will provide measuring tapes and a size chart for reference in your SWAG bag and folder. 

    • The only apparel piece that will be available for physical try on is the court shoes. A Mizuno rep will be present for assistance. 

    • We will have the jerseys hanging up on a wall based on size and height. Please have your player stand next to the jerseys size reference and refer to the apparel size guide in your folder.

    • We will have the pants and jackets hanging up on the bleachers, while spandex, socks, and knee pads will be displayed. There will be a volunteer there that can help compare sizes and ensure products are disinfected if they need to be touched.

COURT # 2

  • You will enter into Court #2  where players will get in line to take an individual headshot for their Player Profile wearing their commitment night shirt.   While waiting in line, make sure they take some fun photos at the photo station.  Parents will continue to Court # 3.

  • Player Council: Have your player stop by the Player Council Table and learn what it's all about.   Also, please participate in our first FUNDRAISER for the Player Council this year.   Player Council is now its own 501 (3) C, and funds raised will go towards their annual goals!

    • Squares Fundraiser for CAJ PC!

      • Squares are $10 each. 

      • Buy a square for Arkansas vs. Florida!

      • Cash, Check, or VENMO accepted!

        • Prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th quarter winning squares.

 

COURT # 3

  • Court # 3 is where we will have multiple tables set up for parents & players to stop.

    • Notary Table: Stop here if you need a notary seal on your medical release form or to turn it in if it was incomplete. Your coach will have your form if it needs a notary, or it is incomplete.

    • Payment Table:  All players must pay their first payment in person on commitment night.  After Commitment Night, parents can use auto-pay or pay at the gym each month.    Credit Cards, Cash, and Checks are accepted.   There will be separate lines for Cash/Check and Credit Cards.   If you pay with Check, please make sure your player’s name and team name are in the memo line. Quick Tip:  The check line will go faster than the credit card line.

    • The CAJ SPORTS pop-up shop will be in Court # 3. We ask that you use the SWAG bag for any goodies you buy!
