We are proud to say that we are entering our 17th season of providing an affordable option for players and parents seeking a quality club experience.
Our club was created to provide an opportunity for young women to learn the values of teamwork, cooperation and healthy competition at an affordable cost.
The coaches of Mason Dixon have a variety of volleyball experience. All of our coaches have several years at the Club or middle and high school levels. A number of our coaches continue to play in adult leagues, And we even have a couple H.S. and M.S. officials on our staff.
Thanks to our VOLUNTEER staff we have been able to continually meet those goals. That's not a misprint! None of our staff receive any compensation for their efforts. This is the primary reason we are able to offer a quality club experience at a fraction of the cost of many local clubs.
We understand that Club sports have become an expensive choice- And you as a consumer have multiple options. We would suggest you ask all of your questions before making a commitment to any specific club. We hope that some of the information here provides some insight into who WE are and what our goals are.
Our teams typically participate in 8 to 10 regional tournaments. The majority of which are within a 2 hour drive of Elkton, MD or Newark, DE.
Some of our teams have opted to participate in multi-day events, such as the Irish Rumble in Lancaster, or Happy Volley at Penn State. The decision to travel to multi-day events are left up to the individual teams. So YOU, as a player or parent, have a voice in that process. (These events often have additional costs, such as lodging and meals associated with them)
* Eight to ten single day tournaments.
* Practice twice per week at locations in Cecil Co. Md & New Castle Co. De.
* Uniforms & warm-ups is INCLUDED in your club fee.
* Experienced coaches who are focused on developing your players skills of teamwork & cooperation.
For those new to club volleyball, a players level is based upon their age on Sept. 1.
Below is a link to the USAV Age Definition & Classification Chart.
Please note that girls MAY play above their age level, but the CANNOT play in a younger age group.
All players who will be participating in Mason Dixon Try-outs must obtain a Try-out membership through USAV.
When you log-in you will be asked to select "try-out" or "full" membership. We suggest choosing the try-out option. (Once you've accepted an offer you will then upgrade to a full membership.)
Follow the link below to log into USAV (webpoint) to complete this registration process.
Impact wraps up play at Beachfest as the Gold Division (Open) runner-up.
After a rough start this morning Voltage & Rip Tide both had strong afternoons finishing in the top half of the Silver bracket. They came within a couple points of having an All Mason Dixon final!
Inferno ended their day at Md. Jrs. as a Silver Division semi-finalist.
Congratulations to all of our young ladies and their coaches on a great weekend for the club!
Great day for the club!
Impact, Tide and Voltage are still in the running for Gold.
One set at a time!
A great day for Impact on Sunday. 9 and 1 in set play to bring home the GOLD!
A great showing for Mason Dixon at the Irish Rumble in Lancaster last weekend.
Inferno finished 2nd in the Silver Division with an overall record of 6-2 (12-5). They ended up 12th of 57 teams overall.
What a frustrating start to the New Year! The Coaches and Board are as disappointed in the number of weather related cancellations as many of you are!
We are excited about the fact that we've been able to obtain some gym time at Bo Manor on Sunday 1/21 between 10 am and 2 pm. Please contact your coach and let them know if you're able to attend this session!
This is an easy opportunity for players to have their score-keeping and officiating "observations" signed off, as we will have two CHRVA officials present for the day.
All teams have received their uniforms EXCEPT for the two 18U squads. Club bags will be arriving by the middle of the week, and hopefully will be ready for distribution by Thur or Fri.
Any questions related to uniforms should be directed to Ed at email@example.com.
Final payments for club fees are due Jan. 31st. We encourage the use of the "on-line" payment option, as it is convenient and secure and allows for electronic transfer of funds from a bank account .
We hope everyone had an enjoyable break, AND that you're ready to get back into volleyball mode!
We've posted a link to the Scorer and Officiating certification process below. (As many of you know, the Region and USAV requires players or coaches to score and officiate matches at tournaments.)
Most of our coaches ask that each team member complete the certification process, so that one or two players aren't saddled with these responsibilities during each match. Please check with your coach regarding their preference.
Players should opt for Junior Referee LEVEL 1.
Our coaches have been busy this week submitting requests for tournaments for the upcoming months, and our web guy has been trying to keep up with them!
You will begin to see tournaments listed for your team on the club calendar, along with the Game tab on each teams home page. These should be considered "tentative" Once these proposed tourneys have been Confirmed, we will add that to the listing on the site.
CHRVA strives to provide teams with 4 weeks notice regarding tournament selection. Which means we will be hearing this week and next regarding January tourneys. On rare occasions, we may receive less notice.
Please understand that Mason Dixon has no control over which tournaments we are accepted to. Most of our coaches opt to apply for multiple tournaments, with the understanding that they their applications will not be accepted.
Options and Order Forms are now available!
Information and options will be available on the web page under the "fan gear" tab on Thur. Nov. 30th.
If your order is received prior to Dec. 9th, our vendor assures delivery by the 22nd. Just in time for the Holidays!
Our coaches are excited to begin practices next week, but there are a couple administrative items that we need to confirm.
1. If you haven't changed your "club affiliation" you MUST do this PRIOR to your first practice. (Players are only permitted to participate in practice if they are "on" a Mason Dixon VBC roster. Players must log in through...
and select Mason Dixon.
2. Players must provide a copy of their medical release, which you completed prior to try-outs. You can print a copy of this document through your Sports Engine or webpoint account.
3. Players are required to provide a copy of their Birth Certificate. This will be retained by their coach to resolve any disputes regarding a player's age-eligibility at tournaments.
4. Lastly, players will only be permitted to participate in practice sessions if they have submitted a minimum of a partial payment for the upcoming season, PRIOR to November 30, 2017. This can be completed by following the below link.
We will be updating the club calendar to reflect practice times along with confirmed tournaments shortly.
We look forward to meeting with our players and parents on Monday Nov. 20th at Bo Manor in Chesapeake City at 6:30 pm.
Our coaches will confirm practice locations and times at this meeting, but more importantly, we will finalize uniform sizing for our players gear.
We are pleased to offer an installment option for the upcoming season. Details can be found by following the below link "Pay for 2017-18 Club Fees Here" We do require a minimum payment of $250.00 to cover the cost of uniforms and equipment for the season.
Players MUST "affiliate" with Mason Dixon VBC through the webpoint/usav link AND provide a copy of their birth-certificate to their coaches on Monday.
The coaches of Mason Dixon have finalized their rosters. All players who participated in try-outs should have received an offer to play, or regrettably, a notice that we cannot accommodate additional players.
