Spectator Access Continues through Power Series

Hello everyone! 

I think everyone has heard the news that the State Health Department has passed COVID regulatory control off to the county governments. This generally means "fewer restrictions" but of course we'd like to offer a consistent experience for our RMR volleyball players and fans. Please review the document attached above, for a discussion of what you can expect at the gyms this weekend.

Short version:

We will continue the mask requirement for all persons indoors.

We will continue the check-in process with sign-in registration and temperature check

We will continue the single-spectator-per-athlete policy

Otherwise, look to your Site Directors for information about how each site will operate.

Please be polite and cooperative, as they work to give you a great spectator experience!

Good luck....      and have a great weekend!

 

CALLING ALL Adults!!Β 

Hello ladies!

CVA has set aside a couple of courts for adult RMR on Saturday May 15th from 2:00 - 4:30. CVA has been always gracious in working with the adult program! THANK YOU CVA!

This time-slot is especially designed for those going to Nationals at the end of May... to help you get some court time in! Of course any of you that want to get out and play some competitive hard court and beat up on that ball are more than welcome to come join in!
Cost is "TBA" at this time, depending on participation, but will be kept to a minimum. I am planning on no more than $5 (hopefully less) per person. (working on $$ supplements).

Please bring a team, or just bring yourself! Pass the word! Come see friends and foes! To join in, send an email to pattivball@q.com including how many players you anticipate bringing.

Any questions, please ask. Look forward to seeing you all!
Patti

Masks will NOT be worn at Nationals, but at this time will be required at this practice, subject to change.

===================

From Patti Enright-Harris, RMR "Adult Player Rep"

Howdy, It's been a long hard year on all.  Hoping you are staying safe and sane! Reaching out to all adult players, on a couple of items. 

Item 1: Adult Open Nationals: May 26th-June 2nd in Louisville, Kentucky.  

For those interested or those going to Adult Nationals, all divisions: There are a few teams that are working on going, but they're looking for players - setters, middles- fun players!  If you are interested, or would like information, please contact Erin at the RMR office as quickly as possible. (erinrmrvolleyball@gmail.com) We would like to get all these folks together.  If there's enough interest, maybe organize some court time for those teams!   

Item Next: What can we do to help? There are lots of you out there that still have the heart for volleyball, whether it be a young adult or one of us seniors.  Can we organize an adult sand/grass tournament for you this year?  Organize some indoor tournaments or leagues for the coming fall?  Maybe just a short-season of adult league play?

Help us help you!  We have some ideas, but we WANT your feedback! We ARE here!

Enjoy!

schedules continue to change

Please keep a very close eye on our weekend schedules. There continues to be a high number of COVID-related team-cancellations each week. The large number of drops leads to many pool and site-assignment revisions. Look before you travel!

Colorado extends vaccine availability to everyone age 16 and above.Β 

(Copied from Tri-Counties COVID-WebPage)

The state is now in Phase 2 of the vaccine distribution plan, which allows vaccination for everyone in the general public age 16 and over. Everyone in the previous phases remain eligible, and vaccine providers may prioritize by age, depending on their supply. The state has launched six community vaccination sites across the state to help with vaccine administration and access. Find a vaccine provider near you.

The best next step is to sign up on a waitlist at a vaccine clinic or provider near you. You can use the Colorado COVID-19 Vaccine Spotter to find vaccine appointment openings at pharmacies, updated every minute. The vaccine is free and no identification is required. The more people who get vaccinated against COVID-19, the sooner we can get back to enjoying time with our loved ones and helping our businesses recover. 

If you or someone you know has questions, please contact our call center at 303-220-9200, email us at email callcenter@tchd.org or visit our vaccine webpage. The state’s toll-free COVID-19 vaccine hotline number is also available 24 hours per day every day to answer questions in multiple languages at 1-877-CO VAX CO (1-877-268-2926).

Keepin' It COVID-SAFE....

We seem to be seeing an increase in covid-related quarantines, contact-tracing events and team drops. The RMR would like to encourage all of you to employ whatever mechanisms that YOU, YOUR PLAYERS and YOUR FAMILIES can do, to stay safe, stay engaged in sport, and stay on court.  

What can you do?

GET VACCINATED! For information on who is eligible, and where free vaccinations can be obtained, see the CDPHE VaccinationPage

And of course, athletes and their families should be ever-vigilant for covid symptoms among not only our players, but also their siblings, friends, parents, co-workers. "If you see something, DO something." Individuals who have been exposed should go to quarantine. People who test positive or show symptoms should go to isolation. For more information, review the health information (HERE). 

What else? Club Directors, Site Hosts, Referees and Coaches can and should serve as  our "safety screen" by employing all best practices on a daily basis, and at all venues.  Take temperatures every day. Look for symptoms. Talk to your players. Encourage the self-reporting that will keep us all safe!

In many of our communities FREE COVID TESTING is available, hosted by local government and other vendors. Let's all try to take advantage of this important tool! "Best practice" might be to get your entire team tested each week... maybe on Thursday.

Wouldn't it be great to know that everyone in the gym is covid-free?

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!

 

Baller TV Coupon now Active

For any customers coming to Baller TV this spring season, please note that RMR has again been extended an open 20% discount. To access the discount enter the code "RMR2021" as you register at https://www.ballertv.com

Parents: We understand that this has been a difficult season for you, and especially since the State COVID occupancy limits are preventing us from allowing spectators into the gyms. Hopefully our 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.

 --> 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. 

Some good news: 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 can be as low as $75/year ( based on your selected add-ons) $36/quarter (1 viewer/3 downloads). Entering the code can be tricky: Type promoCode "RMR2021" into the promo code box on the login page first, THEN log in. Now, when you subscribe, you'll receive the discounted pricing! (Or see the instruction sheet by clicking on the "BallerTV Offer" link above)

One last note: Three of our sites are not able to offer Baller-TV due to previous contractual obligations. We ask your understanding in these cases. Note that you may be allowed to purchase their proprietary streams at low one-time costs.

Eye on the prize: Our athletes are back in play!

See you on court!

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 CLICK THE ARROW to indicate which Coaches you'd like to see included!
