After many discussions and work with the Indoor Volleyball Development Committee, the Ontario Volleyball Association has updated the 2021-22 Tryout Window Policy. Please note, the release of the full policy is being delayed until June 1st, 2021, as the final details are ironed out. Nevertheless, the OVA wants all Club Executives and Coaches to have information to prepare for the Early Re-signing period for next season.
Starting Tuesday, June 1 the Early Re-Signing Period will be open to 15U-18U athletes. This means that clubs are permitted to send re-signing offers to their Club athletes that will be playing in the 15U, 16U, 17U and 18U divisions in the next indoor season.
Starting Tuesday June 15th, the Early Re-Signing Period will be open for athletes playing in the 12U, 13U and 14U divisions. More details will be available in the following days on these age group modifications.
The Early Re-Signing Period will last from June 1 to August 8, 2021.
A returning athlete is defined as an OVA-registered athlete that committed to an OVA club during the previous 2020/21 season (I.e., paid club fee, re-signed with the club or was assigned to a club in MRS).
The OVA Re-Signing forms will be posted to the OVA website no later than May 31st. The Re-Signing offers must be honoured for 72 hours from the time indicated on the form and re-signed athletes /are not permitted to attend additional tryouts for other clubs once they commit to a team for the 2021-22 season.
Full details on the Early Re-Signing Period and the 2021-22 Tryout Window Policy will be made available on June 1, 2021 on the OVA website at https://www.ontariovolleyball.org/club-tryouts.
