Mission Statement

Becker Inferno JO Volleyball is dedicated to supporting and promoting competitive volleyball for female athletes grades 4th-12th grade.

Philosophy

Becker Inferno JO Volleyball encourages teamwork, respect, responsibility, discipline, and positive attitudes on and off the court. Becker Inferno JO Volleyball promotes sportsmanship, working hard, and having fun.  All players can expect to have playing time based on such factors as position, attendance, attitude, dedication, hustle, and behavior.

Program Overview

Becker Inferno JO Volleyball is a competitive program with the goal to provide a positive experience for all athletes in the program. The program will host a virual zoom parent informational meeting  on October 18th at 7:00-8:00 pm.    Attendance is strongly recommended for players and parents. Players and parents will be provided a general overview of how the program works, answer any questions players and parents may have, provided tryout dates, review the registration process, and opportunity for players to try on uniforms for appropriate sizing. On-line registration with payment is required prior to the tryout date, and NO REFUND will be issued after a player has completed tryouts and teams have been formed (refund for medical reasons will be considered on an individual basis,  if no prior medical issue reported).  On-line registration will open on October 18th and closes Oct 31th at noon.

Playing Time

Any issues with playing time should always be handled by the player approaching the coach first. Playing time WILL NOT BE EQUAL for 13U and older girls; we promote equal time if possible at the 10U-12U level. 

-Winning occurs through mental attitude and physical ability, positive attitude, coaching, and teammates.

We will be coaching to win. This means putting the strongest team on the court during a tournament, and in particular, during the playoffs of a tournament.

All players will receive equal opportunity to practice. Game play time will based on skill level, practice intensity, missed practice time, attitude, and the position played may be a determining  factor in playing time.

These are important guidelines in setting clear expectations for both players and parents. They will help us all have a positive experience during the JO volleyball season.

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

    After your athlete has attempted to speak with the coach on their own, consider the following before acting further:

  • Coaches will not discuss “coaching decisions”. “Coaching decisions” include who played, who subbed, who served, etc. 
  • The playing time of an athlete is determined by the coach, athlete’s ability, athlete’s potential, the team’s need at the present time and the team’s needs in the future to foster success. 

Procedures to follow if you as a parent have concerns about policies or actions:

  1. Adhere to the 24 hour rule.
  2. Athletes should speak with the coach.
  3. If the matter remains unresolved after the athlete speaks to the coach, then the parent should set up a meeting to speak to the coach. **Parents are not to approach a coach during a tournament or play date, the coaches will be instructed to REFUSE to discuss any controversial matter and to refer the parent to the Becker Inferno JO Volleyball Committee.
  4. If the matter still remains unresolved, or if the parent has reasonable concern that speaking to the coach will not resolve, the parent may contact the Becker Inferno JO Volleyball Committee and request a meeting with the coach and the members. In most situations, we will ask the athlete to attend the meeting as well.

 

*Players must treat their coach with respect, if problems persist, the player will be talked to by the coach. If the problems continue, the coach will talk to the player and the parents. Ongoing, inappropriate behavior may end in termination of the player from the organization (with NO REFUND). 

The Becker Inferno JO Committee consists  of parent volunteers. 

    The Committee is responsible for the operations of the JO VB program including finances, parent handbook, ordering equipment and uniforms, practice schedules, coaches clinics, and tournament registrations.
