The Board of Mason Dixon is disappointed that our season has come to an end.
We are saddened by the fact that OUR girls were not able to enjoy a full club season. Our coaches wish that we had the opportunity to help OUR players learn, grow and develop over the past couple of months, but these are unusual times.
We wish our graduating seniors all of the best in their future endeavors!
We are hoping to be able to offer some opportunities over the summer to work with our players, in accordance with Federal and State recommendations. as well as having access to practice space.
We are hoping to resume Club Ball in November. (fingers crossed!)
Please check your email for information from the Club with details regarding refunds for the '19-'20 season.
Please email Ed at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
Be Safe AND Be Well!
We hope everyone is well and staying safe!
USAV/CHRVA has extended their ban on events and practices through May 1st. They are following to CDC guidance with respect to resuming operations.
As much as WE wish we could get back in the gym, this is safest course of action.
You should have received an email from the club in past day or so regarding our plan to distribute partial Club Fee refunds.
PLEASE email firstname.lastname@example.org if you haven't received that email, or if you have questions.

For those new to Club ball, our teams are required to provide a work team for at least one match per tournament. This consists of an R1 (up-ref), R2 (down ref), two line judges and a table staff- scorekeeper, libero tracker and score flipper.
Each player must complete the on-line tutorial through webpoint / USA volleyball Academy. This will include a review of the rules of the game and score-keeping procedures. (Which everyone would benefit from)
There is a pdf which explains the process and a link to the webpoint training page. Once you've completed the training you will be eligible to be "observed" by an evaluator at a tournament.
To be fully certified, you will need to be observed twice and submit your evaluations to the region.
The Board of Mason Dixon appreciates the value of a dollar!
We are happy to offer the option of purchasing a Club Bag for your player, rather than including it in your Club Fee, and increasing your cost of playing ball.
We have worked with our vendor to provide a quality bag that will last for several seasons, along with customization to include "Mason Dixon Volleyball" and your players last name. All at a cost of $35.00.
email ed at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to place an order.
We will be submitting the order on Sunday, Dec. 22nd, and will receive the bags in mid January.
We are working with our vendor to possibly open the store again in January of 2020 to accommodate those who weren't able to get their orders in prior to Sunday night.

Last week we learned that one of our previous players had undergone emergency surgery and was subsequently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Reena's prognosis is very positive, just like her attitude and infectious smile!
If you're so inclined, please consider following the below link and purchasing a shirt, or making a contribution to help off-set the families medical expenses.
We are proud to say that we are entering our 19th 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.
We look forward to meeting with our players and parents on Tuesday Nov. 20th at Bo Manor in Chesapeake City at 6:30 pm.
Players and parents are required to attend, as it is the only opportunity for players to confirm sizing for our uniform orders.
Our coaches will meet with their respective teams and confirm practice locations and times.
