Welcome to The Hot Shots Website!
From the Bench
Everyone loving the snow or what?! I know I hate it and I don't have a reason to complain compared to everyone in Buffalo. But winter is officially here which means our leagues are filling up quick if not already full. I warned you that we don't have much room so if you didn't get in to our DEF leagues, register this week so get your team in. BCF playoffs are in 2 weeks so don't wait! Our DEF schedules are all posted online, so make sure you check out when you have makeups. Everyone has one on a Sunday, so make sure to mark your calendars. If you don't like it; sorry but that's just the way the cookie crumbles. <3 This weekend, we have a hard court tournament and a 3's sand tournament. For more info on that, make sure to check out the nova tournament website. We also have our Turkey ultimate challenge court on the 28th. Taking 3 courts worth of people so sign up on the Nova site, fax in a sheet, or see a manager.
Hello and Welcome back to those of you who will be starting your new league. If you are new to our system, here are a few things to help you out. Your captain should receive your first game time at the time of registration. If for any reason this doesn’t happen please feel free to call. We will always be able to give you your first game time and date. If for any reason your game time should be switched then your captain will get a notifying phone call. Your full league schedule may get posted the day of or after the start of the league. The reason that we might wait to put up a final schedule is to make sure we only post a final schedule once. To try and change an already existing league schedule tends to be tough on all team. On certain courts and times of the year, teams will wait until the last minute to sign up. So when we have less then a full league we try and wait till the last possible minute to create a schedule incase late teams would like to get in and fill open spots.
Here are the Rule Adjustments that we feel are necessary to help develop skill and encourage play. Let the players play and more rally is a good thing.
Captains meeting for the match should take place before the warm-up begins .go over rules and policy w/ captains and teams so they know what to except from you as a ref
1- players can use open hands on serve reception - double hits w/ hands is OK- again on serve Reception( and 1st contact during a rally) Serve Reception only call OVER control of a ball- if player lifts/ carry/ throw the ball w/ hand contact from the Waist area or lower.
2-A player can also double a first contact. Hard driven vs. not hard driven is no longer a factor in determining if a player doubles a ball.
3- what is a NET- only call a player in the net if contacting(playing) the ball- once a player lands and contacts the net it's not a net.
