There will be an officials clinic run by the Badger Region on Friday night, December 4th at The Bar of Oshkosh. This is a great way for us to contribute to the region by training more officials, but also is a great way for you to earn extra money by officiating juniors events in Wisconsin. We will begin gathering at 6:00pm and the clinic will officially begin at 6:30. There will be some appetizers available and they are also offering .25 cent wings and a drink special (before 7pm).

In the spirit of the WVC, we will be organizing a 'social' event on Friday, Dec 4 for players and coaches. Part of this social event will include an officials clinic run by the Badger Region. This is a great way for us to contribute to the region by training more officials, but also is a great way for you to earn extra money by officiating juniors events in Wisconsin. Plus, it ensures that we have trained officials on all of our teams for both WVC tournaments and out of state events. Times, locations and details will follow, but we would hope that at least two team reps would attend this clinic and social to follow.

On Saturday, the newly formed WVC Players Advisory Committee will be meeting for the first time. Mike Callaway from UW-Oshkosh will be the director of this group, and if you or any of your players are interested in joining please let us know. More details will follow.

There will also be a mandatory kickoff and scheduling meeting for all team representatives on October 25 at Marquette University. The meeting will take place from 9 am - 12 pm in the Katherine Cudahy Hall, Room 137. It is located near the new library on Wisconsin and 13th. Parking is accessible usually for free on the weekends in the lot across from the Al McGuire Center. The agenda for the day is:

1. 2010 WVC Format and Conference Guidelines
2. Eligibility
3. Instructions for Signuptoplay - USAV registration
4. NCVF Explanation
5. State Championships Information
6. Scheduling of Matches / Playdates for the 2010 season

All teams need to have one (preferably 2) representatives at this meeting. This includes all WVC WOMEN'S teams and MENS' JV teams as well. You need to bring to the meeting:

1. School Calendar with your gym availability times to schedule matches
2. Contact information for your club sports directors and club advisors

Because the State Championships tournament will be held 3 weeks earlier, we will lose a significant amount of our regular season this year. As a result, we are going to look to schedule more triangulars or quads when possible.

WOMEN'S TEAMS: We have one playdate scheduled for Feb 27 at UW-Stout, and would like to have two others. If you are interested in hosting, please work now to secure gym time, and be sure to let us know prior to the meeting. We will also be playing a set number of dual matches, which you will schedule on the 25th. Questions or suggestions, please contact Nicole Zimmerman, the WVC Women's Division Coordinator (zimmerma.nico@students.uwlax.edu)
