The State Volleyball Committee conducted a recent meeting on May 4th. As follow-up, the Committee wishes to communicate directly to all volleyball schools the following important information:
Endowment Game scheduling – In planning next year’s (2015-2016) volleyball season schedules, please be informed that schools may collectively decide to schedule an “Endowment Game” that falls into the “Open Date” concept. This would require one school (host) to apply, list all the schools involved, and pay the one fee of $300. The other option in scheduling a Volleyball Endowment Game is to apply for and play an extra match between two teams. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the Endowment Game Program.
