Navajo Starlings

Sunday Workout & Registration

For Sunday February 18 our workouts are as follows:

10:00 – 11:30 7th & 8th graders

11:30 – 1:00 6th grade and below

1:00 – 2:30 high schoolers

 

Registration packets can be turned in at the table. Make checks payable to Starlings and staple to the packet. If you are paying in cash, provide it to Dennis, Marv or Ken in an envelope with the players name on it.

 

Based upon some of the packets turned in, there are 3 points I want  to make:

  1. Have the player try on the sample jersey and shorts before turning in the packet. If it has already been turned in a packet but not tried on the samples, do so at a workout. I can change sizes until we close registration after which I will immediately place our uniform order. I will also have the turned in packets at the workouts if you want to double check what was ordered. GIRLS WILL GET WHAT THEY ORDER and if you order the wrong size that is on you. As to sweatshirts, I suggest looking around the gym and asking to try on sweatshirts brought into the gym from a returning player, and asking returning players of the similar size what size their starlings t-shirt is. Samples will be at the workouts.
  2. While the divisions are spilt by age, we form our teams based upon grade. For club volleyball September 1 is the controlling birth date. For example, if a girl turns 13 on August 31, she is a 13 and  must play 14s. However, if the girl turns 13 on September 1 or later, while she is a 12 she will play 14s if she is in the 7th grade.
  3. The only team requests that will be honored are for sisters in the same grade.

 

Quote of the week: Outcome is often outside of ones control, EFFORT never is.

 

See you in the gym.

We hope to have Sunday workouts throughout February. No need to let me know if your player can or can’t make it.

 

One of the goals of every workout is for every girl to leave the gym a better player than when she walked in. Others are working up a sweat and having fun.

 

Quote of the week: The two things Coach Ken hates to hear in the gym: a player saying “I Can’t”; and, a coach saying “Hustle”.

 

The time to get all your questions answered has come. Our informational/registration meeting is set for Tuesday, February 13 at 6:30 at the Palisades Presbyterian Church 6301 Birchwood St, San Diego, CA 92120 https://www.bing.com/maps/directions?rtp=adr.~pos.32.7874412536621_-117.083633422852_6301+Birchwood+St%2c+San+Diego%2c+CA+92120_Palisades+Presbyterian+Church_(619)+582-0852 (press control & click for directions).

 

Players should attend to be fitted for jerseys and shorts. If returning players could wear their Starlings sweatshirt so that others can try them on to select a size, that would be helpful. If you need a registration packet, email ken@starlings.org for one. Print, fill it out and turn it in. DO NOT insert sizes for jerseys and shorts until samples have been tried on, and packets will not be accepted until sizes are noted in the packet, and girls will get what they submit on the form. For those that can pay the full amount, turn it in with the packet. For those that are on the fence and/or want to wait to pay, please turn in the packet. Payment will need to be made before the registration closes the first week of March at which time the teams will be formed. For those that need to make payments, $300 is due by the close of registration, with the remainder due on or before May 1. For those in need of a different payment plan, talk with Dennis or Ken with your proposal. While funds are needed to cover our expenses, we don’t want payment to be a barrier to participating.  

 

New this year, in addition to turning in a registration packet, each player will need to be registered with Sports Engine. Go to www.user.sportngin.com . There are various reasons for this, one of which is to use our website for disseminating information. When inserting the email address to register, insert a parent/guardian’s address instead of the players unless you want notices to go directly to the players email.

 

As to our tournament schedule this season, it is: March 24,  April 14,  April 29, May 6, May 20 (grass), June 3 (SD County), and June 22-24 (Nationals). The grass tournament had been set for May 19 for SD City College, but was moved to May 20 at UCSD.

 

If you want to be taken off the contact list for the coming season, please let me know. However, when responding to be taken off the list please provide the players name.
