Main goal is for kids and families to be safe, and to get to play Volleyball and have fun.

Be sure to check the schedule on the Website before going on Saturday.

 

ABC Apollo is regulated by:

We will follow all regulations.

 

Knowing  that the Covid 19 could change things at a moment's notice—you will need to check the website daily:      Abcapolloacademy.com

 

There is a chance that we will just collect registration forms on Saturday, Dec 5 and 

Saturday, Dec 12. We may also hold additional tryouts before we make teams. As you know this is difficult time for everyone—including the setup and the running of Club volleyball. So as long as everyone is willing to be solution-oriented, it will all work out, as it always does for ABC Apollo. Things are not perfect—but we will have as much fun as we can. 

 

For Tryouts: 

You will need to show up at Prince of Peace. 

We will collect the paperwork.

You will need to Bring $20 tryout fee/processing fee if you want to be considered for ABC.

We may or may not have an actual practice/tryout—maybe just collect the paperwork.

until Jan 1, 2021.

 

What you will need to bring:

  1. Membership to CEVA—printed copy

  2. $20 Tryout/registration fee. 

  3. A Check for $300— made out to ABC APOLLO ACADEMY—remember we will not deposit them until Jan 1, 2021 –You can even put that as the date.

  5. Medical form—printed copy. You will find this paper on the CEVA website. (under documents)

  6. Place all forms, $300 check, and $20, in an envelope. 

After tryouts we will begin to make teams and this may take all the way into January.

The fact that CDC, The Governor, Washington County, Ceva, and Prince of Peace church could all make changes to : IF and When we can play,

                                      How may kids on a court/team,

                                      Playing 6s or 4s….

There are so many variables that we will just move forward with whatever works.
