BYVC Beach Volleyball 2021

Who’s ready to start thinking about summer??

BYVC is starting to put together some high-level tentative plans regarding our outdoor beach volleyball programs for 2021!!!

Disclaimer: These plans are subject to change to ensure compliance with any and all COVID protocols put in place by Brant County, OVA and BYYC.

As in the past, there will be two streams – competitive and developmental.  Both streams will be run out of our beach facility at Green Lane Park in Paris, beginning the week of May 15.  All sessions will run from 6:30 to 8:00pm.

Both streams will have player caps. Due to COVID uncertainty, initially, we will be taking names on a Wait List. We’ll collect fees once we are closer to an actual start date. If we are forced to reduce numbers, then the reduction will be done based on position on the Wait List, so REGISTER EARLY to avoid disappointment!!

Competitive Program

Competitive will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays and go until Provincials (typically August Long Weekend).  Tuesdays will be “skill night” and Thursdays will be “game night”.  These sessions are intended for players who are interested in playing on the OVA Beach Tour or experienced players who want to sharpen their all round skills for the next indoor season.

Developmental Program

The Development stream will run for 8 weeks on Wednesdays. The developmental stream is for players who are just being introduced to the outdoor game. Early sessions will focus mostly on individual volleyball skills.  Over the course of the program the focus will shift to game play, possibly with some minor modifications to encourage and lengthen rallies.  This session would also be of interest to younger competitive indoor players who want to learn beach but can’t commit to playing on the OVA tour.

Trivia Night!!!

BYVC will be holding a Trivia Night, as part of the BYVC Chat series, this Wednesday at 7:30 pm!!!

We’ve dug into the well of unused Jeopardy questions to come up some exciting trivia questions – which BYVC member is a fountain of information when it come to obscure, meaningless, inconsequential information?

Athletes and family members are both allowed to play – play individually or as a team.  Doesn’t matter how you play, we just want you to play!

Two ways to win:

  1. Individually – highest score wins.
  2. BYVC team – the BYVC team with the highest participation rate wins a Maria’s West pizza party.

The more people to play, the greater the prize – 1-20 playing, winner’s gift card = $20; 21-40 playing, winner’s gift card = $30; 41+ playing, winner’s gift card = $50!

We’ll be using Kahoot – Stay Tuned! An email invitation will be sent out to all Athletes, with technical instructions soon.

Update: Indoor Developmental Programs – Cancelled for Remainder of 20/21 Season

Brant Youth Volleyball Club has just received the official notice that the Grand Erie School Board has cancelled all community group permits until the end of March.  Due to a lack of facility resources, we will not be able to offer any developmental programs this winter.  BYVC will continue to monitor the situation and update you if things were to change. Hoping to be able to run our outdoor beach program in the May/June timeframe. Stay tuned for further information as we get closer to those dates.
