Welcome to the Captain's Corner for "Where's the Beach" Volleyball. This page can answer some questions about general league operations, and hopefully with your help, we can make the league run as smoothly and enjoyably as possible. If you have any more questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. Have a great season!
At the start of the season there will be a captains' meeting, where each captain will receive a clipboard complete with a set of waivers for everyone to sign, enough game sheets for the Spring and Summer season, a set of rules, and a pen. At the start of the Summer season, someone from Perpetual Motion will be at the first game to hand out clipboards and answer any questions you might have. The clipboard given to the captain is yours to keep and to bring to every game.
At the start of each season (one per year), everyone must sign a 'Release of Liability Waiver'. If you add a player during the year, get them to sign a waiver as well, even if it is only for one game. The signed waivers are to be placed on the wooden clipboard located inside the door of the concrete bunker for the league convener to pick up. Alternatively, the waivers can be signed online by clicking on 'Waivers' under 'Registration' .
Following each game, the captains will fill out the game sheets and submit them online using the online score reporter within 24 hours of their game.
At the end of each game, a Spirit Score is to be awarded to the opposing team on a scale from 1-5 (half scores are permitted). The team as a whole should have input on what Spirit Score should be awarded to the other team. For a guide on how to award Spirit Scores consistently, click on 'Spirit Score Info'. At the end of the season, there will be a spirit trophy and prizes awarded to the team with the highest spirit average.
All schedules will be posted on the website and can be found by clicking on 'Schedules & Standings'.
Proper Clean-up Procedures
At the end of the night, the last two teams are responsible for taking down the nets and locking them away in the concrete bunker.
Ensure that all accessories are packed. There should be 1 crank, 4 bungee cords, 6 yellow tent pegs, a ball, score chart, first aid kit, perimeter lines and a net. These all need to be put back into the bag, which then is placed in the bunker.
When rolling up the perimeter lines, place one of the silver rings from the line onto the screw that is on the wooden spool. The wooden spool for the 2's league is red and the wooden spool for the 4's and 6's leagues are unpainted.
Begin to wrap the lines onto the spool gripping both lengths of the rope that is attached to the ring. Please do not wrap the lines around your arm as this takes us a very long time to undo the next day.
