CLUB INFORMATION REGARDING WEATHER
In the event of bad weather practice may or may not be canceled. If weather conditions in your area prohibit safe travel, players should NOT go to practice. Players are responsible to contact their coaches to report the absence. If coaches are unable to make it to practice, we will cancel the session and post this information to the club website. Posting will be made no later than one hour prior to the start of practice.
In the event weather conditions prohibit players from attending a tournament, they are to call and email (both) their respective coach prior to 6:00am on the day of the tournament to report their absence. Coaches will confirm with the remaining players on the roster, that there will be enough players to compete (we do not want to have less than 6 players arrive in Indy for the tournament and discover they do not have enough players on their team to compete.)
Historically in the past, tournaments have never been canceled due to weather. Teams that can attend are realigned and the tournament goes on. Safety must be taken into consideration when inclement weather occurs. Individual families must contact their coach if they feel that travel is unsafe and they will not be able to attend. (Note: Tournament entry fees are paid in advance and are not refunded to teams who do not attend.)
SPECIAL DECEMBER RACK SALE: All club logo T-shirts on the metal rack-on-wheels are on sale for $5.00 (until gone). Volleywear for all of our parents/players can be purchased at all practice sessions. T-shirts, Sweatshirts, and 1/4 zip fleece now available. Support our teams by wearing the official FWVBC volleywear to all club events!

"The only thing that separates a successful volleyball player from the ones that aren't is a willingness to work very, very hard. We have been producing these type of players since 1987. Over 225 players have gone on to play in college... many more are enjoying the sport of volleyball for a lifetime...."
