Welcome to The Hot Shots Website!
From the Bench
How are we all doing this week? Staying warm I hope! We have a bunch going on this week so listen up. DEF leagues are all starting this week with the exception of Thursday. Don't worry Thursday tams you will start up next week. Make sure since it's week 1 you arrive here alittle early so you have time to fill out the waiver, roster, and to look through the rules/guidelines packet. Every league filled up this session and the schedules are online for you to check out. If you missed out on getting a team in this session, we still have room in our BCF leagues that are starting up the week of February 22nd. So stop in or fax in a sheet within the next week or so because open spots won't last long!!! Challenge court still has a handful of spots left. It filled up on Tuesday last week so don't wait too long if you want to play.
On the NOVA side of things, this weekends coed tournament has already filled!!! We are booked with 15 intermediate teams and 10 advanced. This tournament has a ton of great teams. I would tell you who is signed up but I like surprises so I'll wait until Saturday for you to find that out. The winter/ Spring schedule is out through may, so if your upset you didn't get in this week you can sign up for any tournament as far in advance as you would like.
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.
