Practices begin the first week of December. Tournament play usually begins in January or February and continues through May. Teams will participate in 6-8 tournament dates throughout the season, which includes the OVR Championships. A team may choose to add an additional tournament with the consent of the coach involved and will be paid for separately by the team members. They will also pay for the overnight accommodations for the coach if needed.
Practices will be held 2 - 3 days a week at various gym locations. Main gym LYRIC at 317 Churchill Hubbard Rd, Youngstown unless otherwise noted. As the season progresses additional gym time may become available. Please watch the website for updates.
NEW THIS SEASON:
Club dues are $800.00 per player. Half of fee ($400) is due by December 1st. Second half ($400) is due on February 1st. Also new is the Summer Tryout policy. Players that try out early and accept an offer, will need to put down a $50 Contract Deposit at the time of signing. That deposit will count toward your overall Club Fees once the season begins.

If a player is involved with school sports during club season the player, parents, and club need to evaluate how well the two practices and playing schedules will work together. Usually it can be worked out so that the player can be involved with both teams.
Attendance at practices and tournaments is expected. If a player has to miss a practice, the player needs to notify the coach directly as soon as she knows about the conflict. If a player has a tournament conflict, the player needs to give the coach as much advance notice as possible.
Club dues DO NOT pay for playing time. Players who attend practice regularly, work hard, and show coachability by improving where needed will see corresponding playing time.

Most of the tournaments are local and within an hour or so. All of the tournaments should start between 8 & 9 am and end late in afternoon. Each teams page will have a link to the OVR website that contains each tournaments start time & information. It's expected that your daughter be there at least a half hour before the tournament begins. All players will be required to officiate at each tournament. A rotation will be set up by the coach of each team so that each player shares the officiating duties. Players are not permitted to leave a tournament until released by their coach. Coolers must stay in your vehicles and are not permitted in or outside of the tournament facilities. If a POVBC team does not have at least 6 players present on a tournament day, we may have players from another POVBC teams placed on their roster to avoid forfeiting. If we can not find 6 players to field a team, we will forfeit that tournament and no refund will be given for that tournament day.
The club website will contain information on teams, tournaments and practice schedules. Last minute information and notices about club activities and open gyms will be posted on the main page and should be checked frequently. We also have an Instagram: pennohiovolleyball
