Fall Season Updates

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

Here are a few updates about the Fall 2021 season that we discussed during our league meeting on May 18th.

  1. We are eliminating the combined 3rd/4th grade recreational division.  There will now be two grade specific divisions (3rd grade rec and 4th grade rec)
  2. There will no longer be a 3rd/4th grade upper rec division.  In its place, we will be offering a 4th grade athletic division.
  3. We finally have enough interest to offer a boys 5th/6th grade rec division!  Based on your feedback, this division should have between 6 and 12 teams.

Spring Season Schedules Now Available

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

The full season schedule for girls volleyball is now available (4/1 10pm).  These schedules were reviewed by the coordinators from each organization and feedback was provided to the league before the schedule was finalized.  Thank you to all coordinators for their feedback, almost all of which was incorporated into the schedule.

Schedules can be found in a variety of formats from the Schedule menu (by Team, by Date, by Gym).  If you are a coach, you can also view a pre-filtered version of the schedule which only shows your team from your Coach Portal.  Others who created an account on the web site and subscribed to a team or teams, can view those schedules on their Subscriber Portal.

It is important to note that now that the schedule is live, making changes to it will be very difficult.  Any feedback a coach might have with the schedule should be directed to their coordinator and not the league.  League coordinators are instructed to inform the league of any issues that might arise with the schedule and to work with the league and the coordinator of their opponent on reschedules.  The league will ignore any direct requests from coaches to reschedule or cancel matches.

Thanks and have a great season!

Waivers and Compliance

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

This is a reminder that in order for organizations, coaches (head coaches only!), and players to participate in the CPYVL, the league needs to be in possession of online documents that need to be filled out once per school year by Thursday (9/9) before the first week of matches.  Coordinators and Coaches must be logged into their account to access these forms.  All coordinators are well aware of these requirements, there is no direct communication between the league and coaches and parents regarding compliance.  We communicate to our member organizations and it is their responsibility to communicate to their coaches and parents.

There is a matching process that takes place between waivers and rosters based on the last name and birth date of the player.  In some cases, the member organization has the incorrect birth date on the roster and it is the responsibility of the member organization to fix this.  If you are a parent and have correctly filled out your liability waiver, there is no need to fill out 5 others.  Have your member organization check the roster.

Organizations/Coordinators:  An Organization Agreement form must be filled out (one per organization).  This is available from the Portals->Coordinator menu.

Coaches: Coaches must fill out an online Code of Conduct form which is available from the Portals-Coach menu (you must be logged into your Coach account in order to access the form).  Coaches can check to see which of their players have liability waivers filled out by looking on their Coach Portal under My Teams and clicking on the roster icon.  Coach accounts will be created after team registration has closed (August 16th)

Players: Parents must filled out a Liability Waiver Form once per school year.  Without this form, your player is ineligible to play in our league.  Playing without a waiver may result in forfeiture of games.

Tournament Information

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

Planning is underway for the season-ending tournament that will take place on Saturday, October 19th and Sunday, October 20th.  Please note that all tournament brackets will be played in a single day (either Saturday or Sunday).

  1. All tournament games will either be played at SportsPlus in Evendale,  SportsExpress in Mason, or Betsch Fieldhouse in White Oak on Saturday, October 19th or Sunday, October 20th.  Saturday matches will begin at 9am at the earliest and should complete no later than 6pm while Sunday matches will not begin until 11am at the earliest and also complete no later than 6pm.  As was requested by coordinators in our meeting last summer, each individual bracket will be playing all of their tournament games at a single site.  This may cause issues for the few coaches that are the head coach for multiple teams, but coordinators felt having each bracket play in a single day was more important.  Please make sure you have a competetent assistant available.
  2. As with regular season games, each coach will need to pay the referee $13, both teams should provide a lines person, and the "home team" should work the scoreboard.  The home team is always the higher seed.
  3. Individual medals will be given out to players on the 1st and 2nd place teams.
  4. Recreational teams will not be moved up to play in athletic divisions for the tournament.
  5. The recreational divisions will be split into 8 team brackets (for the most part) based on regular season winning percentage across all pods.  So the "best" 8 teams will play in the A bracket, the next "best" 8 teams will play in the B bracket, etc ...  This is the same methodology we have used in the past.
  6. We will be splitting up the 5th/6th grade athletic divisions into three brackets.  Most of the A division teams will play in the A bracket, the bottom few A division teams and top half of the B division teams will play in the B bracket, and the remaining B division teams will play in the C bracket..
  7. The schedule will be released on Monday evening, October 14th as we will base the bracket assignments and seedings on all regular season results as reported by 7pm on Sunday, October 13th.  If we can provide guidance on where brackets will be playing in advance of the 14th, we will do so.
  8. Once the schedule is released we CANNOT change it.  We have such a small window for these games, there can be absolutely no changes.  If a team cannot make it, they will need to forfeit the match.
  9. If your team will NOT be participating in the tournament, coaches or coordinators please email the league no later than October 1st!

Tournament Schedule Now Available for Oct 23-24

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

The tournament schedule has been released for the tournaments taking place on October 23/24!  Please check the brackets to determine your schedule for tournament weekend.  Tournament schedule is also available from the Schedule menu.

Individual medals will be awarded to all players on the 1st and 2nd place team in each tournament bracket.  All divisions were split into multiple tournament brackets based mostly on winning percentage.  When seeding, teams were not penalized for forfeit losses or rewarded for forfeit wins.  When seeding teams with identical records, we looked at a variety of factors based on the circumstance including head-to-head, point differential, and winning percentage.  We tried to avoid first round matchups between teams from the same organization, but sometimes it was unavoidable.

Coaches, please note that as during the regular season, you must pay the referee (same rate as regular season) and provide one line judge.  If the tournament host does not provide a scoreboard operator, the home team should provide someone to perform this duty.

Check out the links below.  You can also access this tournament information from the Tournament option on the Schedule menu.  An easy way to find which bracket your team is playing in is to go to the Find My Bracket link and enter the last name of your coach.

Game Change Notifications

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

Once the schedule for the fall season has been published, the league will activate game change notifications. From that point forward when a scheduled game has a change in location, a change in game time, or either of the two teams are changed, you can receive an email or SMS text message notification. In addition, when a new game is added to the schedule or a game is removed from the schedule, canceled, or postponed, you will also receive a notification

In order to receive notifications, you must have a user account on the web site (click on the Register link in the upper left corner of the web site to create one). Simply choose the organization you are associated with and then choose the teams you want to follow (up to 5). You can then choose the types of notifications you would like to receive. Please make sure you enter a valid email address and if you want to receive SMS text message notifications that you enter a valid phone number including area code

A quick note about game statuses. A game starts out as "scheduled" and then when the game has been completed it will change to "completed" or "forfeited" if one of the teams does not show up. If one of the teams cannot make the scheduled game but the game will be rescheduled, it will be placed in "postponed" status. If the location or time of a game is changed, the status of the game will be changed to "rescheduled".
