Thank you for signing up!
Welcome to The Sand Club Beach Volleyball League. In order to encourage a Sandtastic time for the next 8-9 weeks, here is some helpful information about league. Please feel free to call us at 480-560-5090 or email us at any time if you have any questions or issues that need to be addressed.
First and foremost, The Sand Club will do it’s best to accommodate for time requests and night’s off (or bye requests) due to work or other commitments but we can not guarantee ALL requests. The goal is to get the draft schedule online 24 hours in advance and players have a schedule for all 8-9 weeks before the first night of league play. However, there are times when there is an overwhelming amount of time and day requests so the schedule may come out the evening or morning before the first night of league play. Please contact us if you do not see the schedule online and we will help lock down a time. Once the draft schedule is online, The Sand Club will make changes the first week if there was a request overlooked and still able to accommodate. We recommend that you do not print the schedule until the 2nd week of league play. The league director will contact teams about the change before making a change after the 2nd week.
Starting On Time
This continues to be a struggle and we ask every player to help start games NO LATER than 5 minutes after the hour. The ideal team etiquette is show up 15 minutes before a match (to get settled in and WARMUP). The ideal team will start peppering on the side line, so when their court opens they are spending no more than 5 minutes practicing serves and swings. Ideally, The Sand Club would like to see a team start the first game no later than 5 minutes after. The ideal team is taking ownership of their court by informing the league director that the previous game is running over. When one opponent has less than 18 points with 5 minutes remaining, then the ideal team will inform the league director. If matches are projected to run 5 minutes over, then the ideal team is ready to go immediately after and not taking 5 minutes to warmup on the court. Teams that are habitually running late will be noted but teams are encouraged to help our community by setting a good example. Each team will guaranteed one hour on the court, not 65 minutes because the other team played 65 minutes.
Teams are asked to contact 480-560-5090 or email us as soon as teams no there are not able to play. Please avoid contacting us after noon the day of league play because it is too difficult to schedule a replacement team. The Sand Club would rather a team play against a replacement team rather than not playing at all. Teams are first encourage to post on our Facebook Sublists:
Teams are encourage to post time, location, skill and maybe who to ask for on the team. Please contact your league director to let them know the change. Teams are welcome to contact 480-560-5090 or email us if teams need help with subs. After 3P, contact your league director. Your league director’s contact number will be on the schedule (found on the league page) but please look each night just in case there is a replacement league director.
The Sand Club has a league rule page but one thing to point out is that all of our leagues are fun-first, competition-second so please avoid getting into lengthy arguments and just agree to disagree and replay a point. No matter how much we educate players about overhead passing (or hand setting), please establish before the game begins how strict or lenient you will be with 2nd contact violations. Our standard rule is just play out a point until the ball is dead and then respectively discuss any concerns about a violation that was not called or any etiquette rules. Coed rules does not require a female to make a contact nor girl serves girl or guys serves guy…with that being said, ASK your opponent before the game so things don’t get crazy after a guy serves a girl three times in a row. The only requirement of coed is that there is a female on the court. Also, ALL divisions should be held to ALL volleyball rules; however, lower division team are welcome to establish before the game a mutual understanding NOT to call hand setting.
