2021-2022 Winter Premier League

Covid Policy

The Health Manitoba mandates, as per Volleyball Manitoba guidelines, is allowing for athletes 12-17 to participate with either proof of a single vaccination or a negative Covid rapid test within the previous 72 hours. We will be following these rules.

In brief, VISION and Warriors Volleyball Clubs will be leaving it up to families whether they prefer to provide proof of single vaccination or negative test results for any athletes between the ages of 12-17. Any athlete over the age of 18 is still required to provide ID and proof of double vaccination.

However, parents should be aware that facilities determine the guidelines to their venues, and facilities such as the University of Manitoba and Brandon University do require proof of double-vaccination for admission.

LEAGUE OVERVIEW

The Premier League is an affordable, fair-play program. The winter program generally runs from January - March. This year we have started the program earlier, however, we will continue to allow for registrations throughout the month of December. The fee will be prorated to allow for more participants.

As a result of this on-going registration, games scheduled in December will be informal scrimmages and the official schedule of games will be announced at the beginning of January.

Simply choose your practice location, day and time and register accordingly. See below for teams looking for athletes.

Program Highlights

First started in 2001, VISION Premier League is a program offered by Volleyball Winnipeg. VISION Premier League & VISION Youth Academy use a unique structure in training athletes. This involves the organization providing VISION certified coaches during training sessions while parent volunteers manage teams during games. In short:

VISION INSTRUCTORS

  • Run team practices 
  • Follow VISION's training protocol
  • All instructors undergo training with VISION Elite on the unique techniques the club uses to train young athletes

PARENT VOLUNTEER COACHES

  • Assist instructors during practices
  • Bench coach the team during games

FIRST PRACTICE OF THE SEASON
During the first practice of the season the instructor will start with a parent meeting to ensure all parents understand the rules of the league and that there is a bench coach confirmed.

  • Athletes confirm their practice schedule when registering online
  • Two teams of 8-10 athletes train together. This ensures there are always 12 athletes to play 6 on 6 games while at practice
  • The teams are formed during the first practice. Friends are kept together
  • Positions are also confirmed during this session and may affect athlete placement

PLAYING TIME
The VISION Premier League is a fair-play environment. That being said, parents should understand that playing time may be affected by each player’s chosen position (fewer setters, for example, would result in them playing more) and bench coaches have the right to favour players during the season-ending Championship Tournament.

Please note that teams in divisions with eight or more teams can expect to play
two matches of 45 minutes each while divisions with 4-6 teams will likely play one match of 90 minutes. In brief:

  • Matches will be two sets only when playing two matches
  • Matches will be four sets when playing one match
  • There are no time-outs
  • Bench coaching is limited to providing feedback in-between sets. Referees and a site convenor will be on hand to sit with teams to review strategy and offer feedback. 

Thank you for your interest in our programs.

EVALUATION DAYS

Should your child wish to join the league only to find practice locations in his/her age class are full, you would need to take him/her to our pre-season “Evaluation Days.” This event is organized for the placement of athletes who missed registering for available practice locations. 

At this event, League Officials will arrive with additional practice locations and will attempt to place athletes. Players will participate in an organized practice to ensure they are being placed with athletes of similar calibre and League Officials will look to confirm a parent-volunteer bench coach for the team.

Should athletes not find a team at one of these evaluations we would ask you to consider participating in one of our Seasonal Camps.

INSTRUCTION
Volleyball Winnipeg provides instructors for every team practice where two teams training together. Instructors will review positional play and team strategy along with the fundamentals of the game.

GAME-DAY COACHING
Although coaches may call for substitutions, there is otherwise no bench coaching during games. No timeouts.

SCRIMMAGE DAY
The first scheduled day of league games is officially our "Scrimmage Day" in which all scores will be recorded, and teams may be re-tiered based on game results. Therefore, these scores will not be counted towards league standings.

TOURNAMENT DAY
The Championship tournament will be hosted on the final weekend of the season and Volleyball Winnipeg reserves the right to host the event over the weekend and may include any day from Friday-Sunday. 

YOUTUBE
Volleyball Winnipeg will do its best to post game videos on its YouTube Channel for parents to view along with their child. We would like to hear from any parent who would like to register as the team's videographer, please contact Ally at: hello@volleyballwinnipeg.ca
