2017 Player and Parent Meeting and Open Gym

We will be having a meeting on December 4th to go over paperwork, schedules, collect fees, try on uniforms, etc.  Each meeting should last about 30 minutes, and then each group will have a 90 minute open gym.  If you have not upgraded your try-out membership to a full membership and designated your club as ZERO GRAVITY you need to do so ASAP.  I do not have the ability to register the players with the OVR until the day after this is done by the please do not wait until Sunday to do it.  If you have not done this you will not be allowed to participate at the open gym because of insurance liabilities.  Please enter Door 4 in the back of the building and walk past the gym to get to the cafeteria.

We will possibly be moving up one or two 14's to the 16's teams.  After watching the 14's at their open gym we will ask some of them to stick around to play with the older players as well.  Please be aware of this going into Sunday.

Gold Champions!!

Sunday, April 10

It was a great day in Elyria today as our young ladies went 5-0 to win the Gold at Spirit's 16U tournament.  16 Black was missing 4 of their normal players, so we pulled up a few kids from our 15's and they didn't miss a beat.  Pool play went smoothly with wins over Lakeshore 16's (25-20, 25-11), Spirit 15's (25-11, 25-19), and Atlantis 16-2 (25-15, 25-20).  In the Gold Semi-finals our ladies came up big against Atlantis 16-1 and advanced to the Gold Finals (25-16, 25-23).  The Gold Finals were a heated battle with Spirit's top team...and our kids were more than ready for the challenge.  After dropping a heated game one (23-25), 16 Black dug deep and took the next two games (26-24, 17-15) for their second Gold Championship of the year.  Team members included Lindsay Carr, Brooke Laughlin, Jessie Galford, Kelly Daugherty, Paige Strobel, Lexi Buck, Olivia Moore, Megan Manson, and Angelyse Trammell.  Congratulations Ladies!!

Gold Champions!!
