Our Rep program is dedicated to providing a competitive athletic experience that promotes teamwork, self-discipline and respect.
What is a Rep team?
A Rep team is defined as a competitive team (as opposed to a House League program). Players who commit to an Orillia Suns Rep team will have the opportunity to practice twice weekly throughout a season, as well as play in OVA tournament and exhibition games.
Who can play on a Rep team?
At this time, the Orillia Suns Volleyball Club has only female teams. If you have a player who is male and interested in playing Rep volleyball, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any female aged 8-17 years old can try out for Orillia Suns (18 year olds may also be eligible - please contact email@example.com for more information).
How does my daughter get on a Rep team?
In order to participate on a Rep team, your daughter must first go through the tryout process. She will need to register for tryouts, attend all tryouts, and then must be invited to play on the team by the coach.
When can my daughter register for Rep?
Our Rep program is considered off-season during late Spring until early Summer, and ramps up in late Summer/early Fall. Please check our website often during this time as we will advertise online tryout registration as well as tryout dates and locations once this information is known. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does my daughter register for Rep?
After teams have been selected by the Coach, and players have accepted their "invitation to join", players will be asked to complete their online registration and attend a registration night (this may be done during a tryout, practice or on a set "Registration Night"). Each player will be required to:
- bring completed forms (provided by the Coach)
- bring a photocopy of birth certificate or passport
- bring a cheque and/or post dated cheques made out to Orillia Suns Volleyball Club for the cost of the player's yearly fee
- try on uniform samples in order to size and order their uniform pieces
What age category does my daughter play on in a Rep team?
Athletes can participate in the age category associated with either the chronological age class or the extended age class.
Read OVA's Youth Competitions Manual for more information.
If in doubt of your daughter's age category, contact email@example.com.
How much does it cost to play on a Rep team?
There are several costs associated with playing on a Rep team:
- Rep tryout fees
- Rep yearly fees
- Equipment (sneakers, black volleyball shorts and knee pads)
- Transportation costs to get to games and tournaments
- Hotel and food costs for the final/provincial tournament
Does my daughter receive a uniform?
Normally, the Rep yearly fee includes the cost of a uniform (game jersey and warm-up jersey). In 2020-21, this was not the case and only new players were asked to purchase a game jersey. For 2021-22, the 2019-20 design will be carried over and uniform costing will be determined at some point prior to the 2021-22 season.
What else is included in the yearly fee?
Your yearly fee is also used to cover the cost of gym permits for practices, practice and game equipment replacement, OVA fees, provincial tournament registration, access to in-house sport physiotherapy, and many other items.
Who do I contact if I have further questions?
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, or you may ask any of the Orillia Suns Volleyball Club coaches.
