NOTE: Tuesday & Wednesday night Long Beach leagues Recreational level teams are registering in one combined division. At the completion of the 5th week, we will break the Recreational Coed 6s Division into 2 separate divisions based on winning pct. We expect to place all teams above and below .500 winning pct. in Rec 1 and Rec 2 Divisions, respectively. We may change the criteria for dividing teams into the 2 divisions based on player feedback. We will keep Monday and Friday as 1 recreational division until we get enough teams to merit 2 divisions. Look for this addition on Monday nights in 2024.
Over the past few years we have had two supposedly separate divisions based on skill level. We let teams decide which division to join and noticed that there was not much difference between the 2 divisions at the end of the season. We feel that this developed because some teams were not sure at what level each division would play resulting in many teams playing in the wrong division. We expect this new procedure to separate teams will result in two distinct divisions, one higher level and one lower level creating more fun and equal games for everyone. We will be adding more details to this process as the season advances. For instance, the split point needs to be in increments of 3 since we place teams 3/net. We will also accept requests from teams near the break point to either play a higher or lower divisions. This worked well in 2022. Your feedback on this change is appreciated and should be directed to email@example.com

– 4s: is the strongest division where rules are even more strictly enforced and players should have the best skills on the beach

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT LEAGUE INFO Note about rosters and subs for the playoffs: The goal of the leagues is to foster good, honorable competition on the volleyball court with every team following the spirit of fair competition. Players/teams should strive to reach their highest level of competition in a fair sportsmanlike manner. Winning is important but it should be far from the ultimate goal. This is not the Pros and the prizes are not really worth that much. Even bragging rights, while fun, are not worth winning at all costs. Too often it seems like we have minor problems with subs and rosters at the playoffs. We could run attendance on every team every night, give every player an ID card which you need to scan every week (tough luck if you forget to bring it). Or maybe have each team send in a picture of their entire team each week just to make sure that all players have competed at least 3 times during the season before the playoffs. And if someone is not on the roster but played all season they would be disqualified from the playoffs for a bureaucratic oversight. The real goal is just to have fair and fun competition. EEVB has followed the same general approach over the years of good sportsmanship and competition and that no one tries to game the system, which is mostly what has happened over the past 38 years. We expect teams to be looking to win in a fair and honorable manner. I expect every team to submit their rosters on time. That teams will not “sneak” in a player, especially a ringer, for the playoffs. That teams with a legitimate problem such as a late season injury will contact us about adding a new player of equal or lower skill level to their roster. That all teams will follow a path of good sportsmanship as they strive to reach their best performance. This is what most of the teams already do and this is the way that everyone should act. I guarantee that we will all know and appreciate which players/teams do follow this path. And we will all know who does not which cannot make winning the wrong way worth it. Thanks.
