2022 SEASON
Hello Players, Parents and Coaches! 

  

Our 2022 club season tryout registrations is now open and will close on November 15, 2021 at 9:00 pm.  Once tryout registrations have closed, another communication will be sent giving days and times for each age group.  Please ensure that the tryout fee of $25/player is paid by November 15, 2021 and waivers are completed in full; otherwise the registration will not be deemed complete and will be removed from the system upon closing of registration. 

  

Some important things to note: 

  

Tryout Dates

  • Tryouts will take place on November 27th and 28th and December 4th and 5th.

  • Final dates and times for each of the age groups will be announced once tryout registrations have closed and we have final numbers for the respective groups.

  • The executive are hoping to have multiple sessions for each age group as we are aware that some players may not be able to attend one of the sessions as scheduled.

  • For the tryout days, the Prince Albert Optimist Toppers Volleyball Club will be following COVID protocols in place at the Alfred Jenkins Fieldhouse (City of Prince Albert policy). 

  • Please ensure that a photocopy of the player’s health card is provided on the first day of tryouts. 

  • Players will be assigned to tryout groups based on their birth year (no exceptions), however, the organization reserves the right to move players from one tryout group to another group.  



2022 Club Fees 
 

  • To cover the operating costs of offering a volleyball program for the 2022 season (including gym rentals and cleaning costs), it is anticipated that fees will be $650 (13u) and $750 (14u to 18u).  This does not include any travel costs for tournaments, Sask Cups or Provincials. 

  • If you require funding from a third party to pay for club registration fees, arrangements must be in place prior to the rostering of teams (which is expected to December 15, 2021). 

  

2022 Teams
 

  • New for 2022, the executive is hoping that we will have a draft of the number of teams, coaches and practice times for each of our age groups to help parents with planning. 

  • Once teams have been rostered after tryouts, another email will be sent giving direction for the payment of club fees.

  • There is NO changing room so athletes must come ready to tryout.

  • Please come prepared to have your assigned tryout number marked on your leg, just below your short line so that evaluators can see it.

  • Masks will be REQUIRED at all times. Please bring one with you. Athletes may want to consider bringing more than one along as they may become wet quickly as they will be working hard! Also, please bring a small individual hand sanitizer and water bottle.

  • Please bring your health card and a clear copy of it please

  • Please arrive early to ensure you are able to get through the lines in a timely manner, for example the proof of vaccination/negative test, health card and tryout number

  • If you are unable to attend a tryout, please email executive@patoppers.com to let us know

  • Registration fees will be sent out via invoice on Team Snap once the teams are selected.

The day of tryouts/evaluations you will be asked to provide the following at registration:

We are accepting the following forms of proof of vaccination:

  • QR code on your mobile phone

  • Printed copy of your vaccine certificate (with or without QR code)

  • Wallet cards received at time of immunization

For the 11-year-old athletes that may be selected for a U13 team, the Executive has decided that they will play together on one team. This will allow for better tracing if there happens to be a Covid case or exposure. Once the vaccine is approved for the age group 5-11 year old’s, it would be an expectation that the these athletes have proof of vaccination as well

 

*At this time the Executive would like to send out another call for potential coaches. We don’t have enough coaches or gym time to accommodate the number of athletes registered for try-outs at this time, which means there is a possibility of cuts being made.* 

 

*All Covid rules and regulations will be adhered to*
