To dispute a result please have the captain only send an email to the person handling your league listed below 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.
For E Quogue/Hampton Bays contact Chuck at firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE ONLY CONTACT THESE STAFF MEMBERS FOR RESULT
QUESTIONS. Any other questions should be directed to EEVB at
Rules: There is a very good description of beach rules and how to interpret them put out by USAV which you can download at www.eevb.net/USAV_Beach_Referee_manual_28_Jan_10.pdf The only violation that EEVB will not follow is the touching the net rule. In EEVB events any touch of the net is a violation.
Championships: All R4s, C4s and 6s teams will play off at the Beach Hut Long Island Beach Volleyball Championships in September at Cedar Beach, Babylon. Teams with player overlap in 2 EEVB leagues or short players may combine for championships subject to EEVB approval. All teams are encouraged to attend league championship party. Do not miss this fun final day of the beach volleyball season.
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.
Team names: Will be assigned by EEVB. Leagues are partially funded by local businesses that lend their name to our program. Any team desiring its own sponsor’s name will be charged $100 in addition to regular team fee. We are letting teams add a moniker to their EEVB supplied team sponsor name. For ex., if you were assigned “The Beach Hut” as a team name you could make it “The Beach Hut Raiders”. All monikers should be short and need to be approved by EEVB.
