2 IVC Board Members 201 All board members are volunteers who believe that additional practice and competition helps to develop future athletes. Our goal is to provide a positive experience for all players! We can not find a solution if we don’t know there is a problem. We will do our best to rectify the situation at hand. Remember we are all IDA community members.Kelly Reeves - Head CoachCheryl Jackson - TournamentsAmy Janssen - Contracts/SchoolRegina Lein- Spirit WearKim Johnson- Treasurer
3 Mission Statement: The purpose of IVC (Ida Volleyball Club) is to instill technical, tactical and mental skills involved in competitive volleyball. IVC's objectives are to educate the players physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. We hope to provide opportunities for individual and team play with the development of such commitments as loyalty, cooperation, and fair play. We will provide directed leadership and supervision that stresses self-discipline, self-motivation, excellence, and the ideals for good sportsmanship. Finally, we hope to create a desire in our players to succeed and excel in volleyball and in their life.

8 Team SelectionThe most important thing is to make your daughter a better volleyball player through this experienceTeams will be decided based on ability levels. Coaches will rate and score players during the try out and the players will be placed on the ability based teams.Number of athletes participating will have an effect on teams developed.Teams will practice twice a week for two hours. Those times will be determined when teams are formed.Tournaments will be held on Saturday or Sunday. Parents are responsible for the transportation of their own child to practices and tournaments.
9 Parent’s Code of Conduct Parent’s Code of Conduct Please understand that you are expected to conduct yourself in a way that brings credit and honor to yourself, your daughter and to the Ida Volleyball Club as a spectator. Once your daughter becomes a part of the Ida Volleyball Club program, you as well as her, represent the program at all competitions you attend. Each facility (including our own) has rules and regulations. Please follow them to the best of your ability whether or not others are doing so. Be on time! Please teach your child the value of being “early” to both competitions and practices. Also, “walk your talk” by picking them up on time after a practice or competition. Tournaments: Allow the coaches to do their job. There are many different coaching styles. Some coaches are very vocal during the game while others choose to take more of an observer role and make corrections during their next practice. In any event, it is very distracting to a player to have mom or dad telling them what to do from the stands. Your job as a spectator is to support your daughter and her team in a positive manner - we encourage you to do this as often as possible. Interacting with the Coach: The “24 hour rule” will be in effect for dealing with complaints or concerns of parents towards coach. If you have a complaint or concern about the coach for either a practice or a match, you need to wait 24 hours before addressing the coach with the issue. This will allow us to handle the challenges in a more rational manner without the emotion of the moment attached. If the issue cannot be resolved at that time, take the issue to the program director.
