Rocky Mountain Region Poised to Return to Action

Saturday Jan 2, 2021

 

Happy New Year Everyone!

It sounds like we may be hearing good news from the Governor and Health Departments in the very near future! A return to level ORANGE has been proposed, which should bring with it increased opportunity for team practices. Additionally, various counties, clubs and facilities have begun the process of applying for the new "5-Star Badge." With that certification , specific facilities and clubs  should be allowed to "turn back the dial"  another level with regard to the number of athletes allowed to participate in practices, or scrimmages. DETAILS OF THE PROGRAM ARE BEING CONFIRMED AT THIS TIME. 

Meanwhile, Club Directors have begun to review the tentative RMR Power Series calendar that our Juniors Committee has proposed. The calendar is tentative of course, but can be viewed via our "calendar" function here on the website (also attached as a PDF). As you'll see, we are proposing a February restart, in the hopes that by that time  enough facilities will have come back on line to host the Series.

We will of course work with each Club over the next few weeks to revise their intended play dates and to redirect their various registration-fees.  

We look forward to seeing you on court soon!

 

 

 

SOS Team Rankings, for week ending Nov 8 2020

Please visit the "Girls / Team SOS Rankings" page to see this weeks' report.

SURVEY: Recruiters You'd Like to Invite to Watch You Play

ATHLETES: The RMR is excited to announce that its partnership with BallerTV will now include FREE access for Collegiate Coaches to watch you play in the RMR Power Series! Please respond to this survey to indicate which Coaches you'd like to see included!

NEW: More about Baller-TV

We are happy to report a successful launch of BallerTV here in the RMR. Yes there were some technical difficulties during the first weekend. Many Issues have been solved, others are still being  addressed. Your suggestions for a "better product" are appreciated, and are being implemented (move scoreboard in viewer, try new camera angles, etc) 

--> Our goal with Baller-TV is to provide you with access to the games that you can't attend in person. The RMR is not engaging in this effort for financial gain. Any funds earned through the B-TV partnership will be used to support the local (currently volunteer) staff that are manning the cameras!

Please be patient with us through our technical difficulties, as this is a "first time effort" for the RMR and the hard-working site directors who are doing so much to help all of this come together.

Parents: we understand that this will be a difficult season for you, since the State COVID occupancy limits are preventing us from allowing spectators into the gyms. Hopefully our new partnership with BallerTV will help. Yes, this does represent an additional expense for you. But on the other hand, live streaming can allow family members to enjoy watching your athlete play from the comfort and safety of home. The "review on demand" feature is another "plus" since it allows you increased flexibility through your busy weekends. One last note: BallerTV has extended their "promotional" pricing structure to us for the entire RMR Power-Series. The coupon on this page is valid for both new and existing customers. Final cost to you is approximately $96/year (includes 4 viewers simultaneously, plus 4 downloads), $40/quarter (1 viewer/1 download) or $20/month (1 viewer/1 download). Entering the code can be tricky: Type promoCode "RMR2020" into the promo code box on the login page first, THEN log in. Now, when you subscribe, you'll receive the discounted pricing. See you on court!

Baller TV has extended its promotional offer for us indefinitely!. That means that our members enjoy consistent pricing points of $20/month, $40/quarter, or $95/year. This weekend BallerTV  is covering 31 of the 39 courts that we have in play.  The table posted  below demonstrates our current coverage. We're working to build relationships and implement technical mechanisms that improve the coverage umbrella!

Please understand that some of our host sites had prior contracts with other vendors prior to B-TV coming on board. We ARE WORKING to build a more comprehensive coverage package.. it just takes time to work out the technical details!  

Use promotional code "RMR2020" to enjoy the discount!

Seeding and SOS presentation a Great Success !

Many thanks to David Mason, for hosting an excellent presentation this afternoon! Many of us learned a great deal about the new  "Player Strength Rating," "Team Seeding"and "Strength of Schedule" programs.
