This is the information and registration page for the WEDNESDAY Unisex Reverse-Coed 4s League in EAST BAY.
The next season starts on November 8th.
Wednesday Format: Unisex Reverse-Coed 4s (sign up as a team of 4)
Games are played on a women's net. Women play as usual - hitting and blocking at the net; men hit from 10-foot-line and may not block. Teams may comprise of any ratio of men and women (including all men or all women).
Games are self-officiated during Regular Season. All teams advance to Playoffs (which follows Regular Season). Playoff games are peer-officiated. This means that for playoff night, you will be assigned to officiate games in round(s) when you're not playing and/or in the round after you're eliminated. Furthermore, after the two semi-final matches have been completed, the lowest ranked loser from the semi-final round will be assigned to officiate the championship match (regardless of whether that team officiated earlier or not).

IMPORTANT! The league fee is calculated based on the number of regular season games we offer to each team and this in turn depends on the number of teams that register. The league fee will either be $480 or $540-per-team. The final figure will be announced once registration is closed.
NOTE: Players who register as Individuals are not guaranteed a spot until we inform you that we have found a spot for you on a team and you have paid for the spot.
** VBmatch reserves the right to charge a higher price for individual players who in the past repeatedly created issues that required additional time (on the part of VBmatch staff) to resolve. For example, some individuals repeatedly cancel and request a "sub" on league days (instead of cancelling in advance) which increases the amount of work for VBmatch staff.
If we decide to charge a higher price for an individual player based on that individual's past record, we will notify that individual prior to the start of the season and that individual may decide if he wishes to join at the higher price or not. VBmatch also reserves the right to reject the registration of
any player who in the past presented a check that did not clear or failed to make full payment of fees.
Highlights from a previous R-Coed 4s League
(held at a different gym):
This is a team-based league. To register, you need to sign up with 3 other players as a team. Individuals without a team can sign up for the Free Agent List.
NOTE: If signing up as an individual for the Free Agent List, we will ask about your volleyball experience and background. Good ball control is a MUST for this league. You are NOT officially registered until you receive a confirmation email from VBmatch that we have found a spot for you on a team.
LEAGUE CANCELLATION POLICY: Please note that we reserve the right to cancel the league at our sole discretion. In the event of cancellation, teams currently registered at that time will receive a pro-rated refund of the fees paid. The league may be cancelled for various reasons including, but not limited to: inclement weather; unavailability of the facilities/site for the league; inadequate number of entries; schedule conflicts of the tournament organizer; etc. In the unlikely event of a league cancellation, notification will be sent via email.
