Volleyball Austin Championship Games This Week

Published

on

Volleyball Austin ends its second season this Thursday at the Austin Sports Center in South Austin with recreational and competitive divisions playing their championship games followed by the championship party and award presentation at Oilcan Harry’s.

Since it kicked off its first season this past spring, Volleyball Austin has already doubled the size of its recreational division from two to four teams and expanded the number of players participating in the season by 20 percent.

In what may prove to be a Cinderella story for the expanded recreational division, the top seeded S.M.A.S.H were knocked out of their shot at the division title by the Mean Girls who went into the semi-finals in last place with a 2-4 record. The Mean Girls will play I’d Hit That on Thursday night after beating out Bump, Set, Decapitate last week. Both I’d Hit That and Bump, Set, Decapitate tied for second place with a 3-3 record during season play. The Mean Girls play I’d Hit That for the 2012 fall season’s recreational division championship on Thursday, November 8, 2012 at the Austin Sports Center in South Austin at 425 Woodward Street starting at 7 PM.

In the competitive division, the first seeded Hit It and Quit It beat out the Ball Busters, who were in a three-way tie for 2nd place, during last week’s games to advance to this week’s championship games against Just Ask, We’ll Tell. The competitive division championship game will be at 8 PM after the recreational division games.

Oilcan Harry’s, the league’s Presenting Sponsor, will host the league’s Championship Party after the games on Thursday night including the presentation of the championship titles and t-shirts along with the individual awards for both divisions, including: Most Valuable Player, Offensive Specialist, Defensive Specialist, and Sportsmanship. The winners were chosen by the team coaches within their respective divisions.

The games and the championship party are all free and open to the public. Friends and family are encouraged to come out to support the teams.  Oilcan Harry’s, the venue for the Championship Party, is only open to those 18 and up.

Volleyball Austin is made possible by community support from local LGBTQ-owned businesses. Oilcan Harry’s is the league’s Presenting Sponsor along with Supporting Sponsors The Iron Bear, Project: PETS, as well as this publication, therepubliq.com, our parent company PlanetChase, and our sports platform, Gay Austin Sports.

Because they use the same space on Thursdays, the league currently alternates its seasons with the Austin Gay Basketball League (AGBL) which is set to begin its 2013 winter season early next yet. The next season for Volleyball Austin is set for Spring 2013.  For more information, including off-season open play sessions and the upcoming spring season, you can visit Volleyball Austin’s website at www.volleyballaustin.com or follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/volleyballaustin or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/volleyballatx.

If you are interested in being part of Volleyball Austin, including volunteering or being a team coach or manager, you can email the commissioner, Brad Hayden, at info@volleyballaustin.com.

Published

on

Volleyball Austin announced that registration is now open for the Fall 2015 season. The season will start on September 17, 2015 and run through November 19, with games played on Thursday nights at the Austin Sports Center at 425 Woodward Street, across from St. Edward’s University.

Registration is open through Monday, August 17, 2015. The fee to register is $45 when registering on or before Sunday, August 9. During the late registration period from Monday, August 10 through Monday, August 17, the registration fee is $50.

[gdlr_space height=”25px”]

Rating sessions are required for new players, and optional for returning players who feel that their skills have changed/grown between seasons. The first rating session is scheduled for Wednesday, August 12 and the second session is Wednesday, August 19. Both sessions are from 7-9 PM and will be held at the Austin Sports Center.

[gdlr_button href=”https://www.facebook.com/events/819195078195198/” target=”_blank” size=”medium” background=”#3a5795″ color=”#ffffff” with_border=”yes” border_color=”#133783″][gdlr_icon type=”icon-calendar”] Rating Session #1 on Facebook[/gdlr_button] [gdlr_button href=”https://www.facebook.com/events/1449320932061491/” target=”_blank” size=”medium” background=”#3a5795″ color=”#ffffff” with_border=”yes” border_color=”#133783″][gdlr_icon type=”icon-calendar”] Rating Session #2 on Facebook[/gdlr_button]

This season features four divisions: advanced, competitive, intermediate and recreational. These skills-based divisions help create a smaller skills gaps between players within each division. During the registration process, players will have the option to request a specific division. It is recommended that players select multiple division to minimize the chance of being left out during the team draft process. For example, if a registrant only selects advanced division during registration, and is not drafted by an Advanced Division team captain, the player will not be eligible to be drafted by a competitive division team captain.

During the draft process, team captains use ratings to select their players. The advanced division team captains select their players from the pool of eligible players until all 7 slots are full. Next, the competitive division team captains begin fill slots on their teams from the remaining players until all slots are full. The process is repeated for the intermediate and recreational divisions. Players that selected to play in a specific division and were not drafted onto teams in those divisions will be provided a full refund.
