2020 Long Beach, NY Volleyball Leagues

Corona Virus Update: SUMMER LEAGUES

Here is the current status of EEVB leagues this summer:
- We are waiting for the municipalities that own the beaches we use to say whether leagues will be allowed this summer. I believe they are waiting for the governor to decide if beaches will be open this summer and if they are, how to deal with/maintain social distancing. Even if open (which EEVB strongly believes should happen), organized activities may still not be allowed.
- For now, we are not taking any entry fee payments. Once we know if leagues will happen, we will announce that and set up a new early registration discount fee.
- Until then, please DO NOT SIGN UP FOR AVP AMERICA MEMBERSHIPS. If the leagues happen, memberships will be required. You can get your membership at that time.

We hope this all clears up in the next month. It is not hard to imagine that not happening and for the summer situation to remain unclear for a long time. We will let everyone know as soon as we hear anything. Until then stay safe and healthy.

Corona Virus Update: SUMMER LEAGUES are still expected to go on as planned. We suggest that teams register and place the deposit through AVP America as described at How To Register. Things will be much clearer as we approach cut off dates for the leagues on May 1. Assuming everything is OK at that time teams can then pay the balances and finish their rosters. If the leagues do not happen all teams will receive a full refund. In the meantime stay healthy and as isolated as you can.

Rec 1 or Rec 2: Which one do I play?

In recent years the recreational coed 6s league has become very large. We decided in 2018 to split Rec 6s into 2 separate divisions. Rec 1 will be more competitive and will follow basic rules such as net violations and excessive carries. Rec 2 will be much more casual. If you like to complain about the rules you belong in Rec 1. If you have a strong competitive drive, if you like spiking the ball straight down and if you are trying to be the best athlete around you belong in Rec 1. If you are looking for a relaxed night on the beach where every point does not determine the end of the world you belong in Rec 2. Keep in mind that we have different divisions to accommodate all levels of competition. Striving to be the best player you can is great. Having the goal of winning at all costs (read playing in a lower division just to get a prize) is not ok. Everyone should want to compete at a level that challenges them but does not demoralize them. Please keep all of this in mind as you pick your division. These leagues are meant to be fun for everyone while giving everyone a chance to find their correct level of competition. Our leagues are set up to allow this to happen as long as everyone cooperates and joins the correct division.
Please note that there will not be a Coed 6s Competitive (Coed 6s Comp) division this year. Competitive 6s will be merged into the Rec 1 division. We have noticed that the top teams in the Rec 1 Division could have all competed in the C6 Division, but for some reason were afraid to try it. Starting in 2019 Rec 1 & C6 are the same. The top nets in this division will follow rules more closely. All teams in the Rec 1 Division should start calling any net violations. We feel this will make for more competitive and fun volleyball for all teams throughout EEVB’s leagues.

To dispute a result please have the captain only send an email to the person handling your league mentioning:

o The night you play

o Your division and captain

o What the question is

Those people will then check and correct the result or bring the result sheet to the next league night to show you what was recorded. Many times we will email a copy of the result sheet to you. Remember we can only record results as they are marked on the sheet. Or you can ask the EEVB staff member at the check in table at your league. They have the past results sheets with them and can show you the sheet to see where the problem is.

QUESTIONS. Any other questions should be directed to EEVB at eevb@optonline.com

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT LEAGUE INFO Note about rosters and subs for the playoffs: The goal of the leagues is to foster good, honorable competition on the volleyball court with every team following the spirit of fair competition. Players/teams should strive to reach their highest level of competition in a fair sportsmanlike manner. Winning is important but it should be far from the ultimate goal. This is not the Pros and the prizes are not really worth that much. Even bragging rights, while fun, are not worth winning at all costs. Too often it seems like we have minor problems with subs and rosters at the playoffs. We could run attendance on every team every night, give every player an ID card which you need to scan every week (tough luck if you forget to bring it). Or maybe have each team send in a picture of their entire team each week just to make sure that all players have competed at least 3 times during the season before the playoffs. And if someone is not on the roster but played all season they would be disqualified from the playoffs for a bureaucratic oversight. The real goal is just to have fair and fun competition. EEVB has followed the same general approach over the years of good sportsmanship and competition and that no one tries to game the system, which is mostly what has happened over the past 38 years. We expect teams to be looking to win in a fair and honorable manner. I expect every team to submit their rosters on time. That teams will not “sneak” in a player, especially a ringer, for the playoffs. That teams with a legitimate problem such as a late season injury will contact us about adding a new player of equal or lower skill level to their roster. That all teams will follow a path of good sportsmanship as they strive to reach their best performance. This is what most of the teams already do and this is the way that everyone should act. I guarantee that we will all know and appreciate which players/teams do follow this path. And we will all know who does not which cannot make winning the wrong way worth it. Thanks.
