Fees: The Club Fee is due prior to the training period. All payments made to CVC are non-refundable. * In the case of a season ending injury, the Club Director will decide upon the status of the player’s fees.
Practices: CVC practice sessions are designed to be demanding, instructional and very competitive, while keeping a positive environment. During practices, all players will have equal opportunity to participate. Players are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to practice time. Early arrival time should be used for stretching. Remember: EARLY IS ON TIME, ON TIME IS LATE, AND LATE IS ENTIRELY UNACCEPTABLE. There are consequences for arriving late (at coaches’ discretion). Players are responsible for ball shagging at practice, and most importantly, keep balls away from potential risk areas. All players are responsible for the set-up and take down of the net systems and equipment, if necessary.
Missed Practices: The coaches will create a practice plan according to the number of players and skill level of the group. Players MUST notify the coach via telephone or text, PRIOR to practice start in case of absence. In case of an illness, the coach should be notified as soon as possible. Players are NOT allowed to attend practice sick.
CVC Apparel: CVC will provide players with a practice t-shirt. There are other CVC gear available for sale which includes bikinis, tights, shorts, backpacks, and much more. Players do not have to wear CVC gear during tournaments, but are encouraged to do so. The only time players are obligated to wear CVC gear is during a Club Tournament or any event that the player will compete as a club.
Sportsmanship and Club Representation: CVC teaches and expects good sportsmanship from its players. That starts with practices and it carries over to tournaments.
