MAKE UP TRYOUTS

There will be NO make up dates this year.  If you are wanting to play at Black Swamp next season you must attend one of our tryout dates.  Please contact Jason Miller at 419-310-3307 to see about any issues you have attending tryouts.

COVID POLICY

Black Swamp VBC will be doing everything in its power to ensure your daughter gets to compete and practice volleyball this club season.  We are prepared to give your daughter five months of training as well as the predetermined number of play dates for each team.  However, given the climate of the pandemic we realize a lot of issues will be beyond our control.  With that said family’s need to approach this club season with openness and flexibility.  Tournaments may/will get canceled or postponed and  I’m sure many will have limited attendance.  If a tournament is canceled we will reschedule another tournament to replace it.  If we aren’t able to replace it the team will be refunded for that tournament cost.

We are planning and committed to giving your daughter 5 months of training.  If at any point we are forced to shut down we will extend our training through June in order for your daughter to receive all the training you paid for.  At that point if we are still unable to offer training opportunities for your daughter you will be issued a credit on your account for the remainder of the training missed at a pro-rated amount.

Black Swamp VBC is not responsible for any missed practice time or tournament play due to injury, sickness, quarantine, or scheduling conflicts for any one individual.  We will  help your athlete make up lost practice time but will not guarantee our ability to do so.
