REMINDER: Club Directors' Meeting and Forum

Club Directors,

This is just a reminder that the Annual Club Directors Meeting Series is this Sunday, September 19th at the Double Tree Hotel in Aurora. The address is 13696 East Iliff Avenue. Light lunch will be served after the meeting. 

The Club Director meeting will be from 10:00 am - 11:30 am.  Topics of discussion include membership management, team registration, tournament formats, SOS, PIL and much more.  Look for the handbook and all the seasonal forms and resource material that you need for the season to be loaded to the RMR website over the next few days!

The Recruiting and Contract Signing Forum is scheduled from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.  We encourage every one to stay and join in on the discussions.  This is your opportunity to be heard.  If you already have some ideas, please send those in by using this link .  We will use your suggestions as talking points! 

We hope you can join us in person and be able to exchange ideas with your fellow club directors, enjoy the food, or maybe win a raffle. 

See You Sunday!

Membership Purchase Starting Sept 1, 2021

Parents: RMR membership for the 2022 season opens on Sept 1st, but PLEASE WAIT for an email from your Club, inviting you to join. Your Club Director will include a direct LINK that takes you directly to the correct Club and Team. This will simplify your SportsEngine experience, and greatly reduce (everyones’) frustration levels! Thank you for your patience; we think that this particular improvement to the SportsEngine experience will be well worth waiting for.  Those memberships will be available September 1.  Keep an eye out for an "invitation to affiliate" email from the club you are committing to!

SportsEngine Zoom Call for Club Directors

Recently, Daniel Becker at USAV was kind enough to offer a presentation "SportsEngine Setup, for Club Directors."

We've recorded the presentation and include it here for your review.

Gage Basey-USA Beach U-19 National Team Member

Gage Basey and partner Caleb Kwekel (Florida) earned a second place finish at the U-19 FIVB World Championship Trials in Huntington Beach, CA at the end of June.  This finish placed them on the USA Beach U-19 National team with four other players.  The pair are hoping that their second place finish will earn them a spot at the World Championships in Roi Et Thailand in December (the competition was recently postponed due to Covid).  They recently attended a training session in Fort Lauderdale, FL to help them prepare.

Former Rocky Mountain Region members become Olympians!

The Tokyo summer Olympics start next month and 2 former Rocky Mountain Region members will be playing for Team USA!  Jordyn Poulter who played for Front Range Volleyball Club and Haleigh Washington who played for Colorado Juniors, will get to compete together in pursuit of a Gold Medal.  Here is what their former clubs had to say.

Jordyn Poulter submitted by Jim Miret

Jordyn Poulter was named to the USA Women’s Volleyball 2021 Tokyo Olympics roster in early June 2021.

We have been fortunate to have many driven, competitive, hard-working athletes go through the Front Range Volleyball Club and Jordyn was certainly one of the best.

Jordyn played at Front Range from age eleven through her senior year in high school.  During that time, she set four teams to win Open-qualifying bids to the USAV JNC’s.  She received AAU All-American and USAV All-American honors her senior year, while setting Front Range 18-1 Black to a 3rd and 5th place finish respectively in the 18 Open division.

Jordyn is an intense competitor, and one of the hardest working players we have had at Front Range. During her club career she spent hundreds of hours training each season as she worked on perfecting the skills of volleyball and specifically, setting. Jordyn is an effective team leader and wonderful person off the court.  While she can display an intense demeanor in competition, off the court she is lighthearted and funny. She is supportive of her teammates and enjoys a good laugh just as much as anyone. 

One of my favorite memories of Jordyn happened during her senior year.  We had a team issue arise, and instead of feeding into the drama created by the issue she said she wanted to work to make sure the current event would not affect the team or become a distraction. Jordyn said: “Jim, we are all on the same team and we all have the same goals. This will not be an issue.”  That kind of leadership is very special, and no doubt will be a valuable asset that Jordyn will bring to Team USA in Tokyo. We at Front Range Volleyball wish Jordyn and every member of the USA Volleyball Teams the best of luck at the Olympics in Tokyo!J

 

Haleigh Washington submitted by Judy Peer:

Haleigh Washington - what a journey!  From Clear Creek, Colorado - she drove over an hour down to Colorado Juniors to “check us out” after she was discovered at a Regis Univ camp. I can’t say it was love at first site for her - but it was for us!  We knew she was a special athlete, with special gifts as a human as well.  She asked us if we thought she could play at Penn State - her dream school - when she was 15.  Clearly a yes, from us!  She committed to Penn State - after a camp her freshman summer and family visit the next summer.  She played on various USA youth and junior national teams along the way, as well as being named the country’s top college recruit as a senior.  Three time first team NCAA All-American, NCAA champion, numerous BIG conference honors - quite a collegiate career. USA volleyball came calling - and she answered the call.  She’s been on many USA rosters and played professionally in England and Italy - but being named an Olympian is the top!  An absolutely “team first” athlete - could not have happened to a more deserving individual.  We are all so proud of her - these things take a village - and she’s got quite the village behind her!

The RMR event schedule and results program! Where do we go? How did we do? It's all here!

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

The RMR does not dictate whether teams or participants should or should not travel in any inclement weather or other conditions. Club/Team travel to any RMR event is always at your own risk and expense . In the event of road closures (verifiable by State Patrol) due to inclement weather on the date of the tournament, it is the responsibility of the Club/Team Representative to notify the Tournament Director that the team will not be participating in the tournament. Only notify the RMR Office if the Tournament Director can not be reached. The team will forfeit all matches which will result in receiving last place in that division. If deemed appropriate, the Junior Committee of the RMR Board of Directors may reimburse tournament entry fee (s) based on the above noted criteria.

The Shinkara Fund was established to assist junior athletes who might need a little help with the expenses related to Club Volleyball. Open the file (at right) for more information regarding the application process.  

The RMR thanks "legendary local volley-philanthropist" Tom Shinkara for all of his support over the years. So many adults and juniors have come to love the sport, and have enjoyed expanded opportunities to play, thanks to Tom and his good works!
