We will use various gyms around SF this season.
Gym locations may include Potrero Hill,
Mission District and near Japan Town
Days (Tuesdays / Thursdays) :
The majority of league games will take place on Tuesday evenings. Some games will take place on Thursday evenings. Teams that sign up earlier will be given "priority" for Tuesday games.
VBmatch hosts several Indoor Volleyball Leagues in the Bay Area. Each league is separate.
This is the Information and Registration page for our SAN FRANCISCO Optional Power-Coed 6s League. The new season of this League will start the week of Tuesday 5/30/2017 or the week of Tuesday 6/6/2017.
* NOTE : For the Summer Season, there will likely be a period of time when we have a "gap" in our league schedule to allow for annual gym maintenance. For example, the season is 10 weeks long (based on the number of registered teams), it will NOT be 10 consecutive weeks. There will likely be a "gap" in there when the gym(s) are unavailable due to maintenance.
League Format: Optional Power-Coed 6s
Games are played on a men's net. Teams may field either 4 men & 2 women or 3 men & 3 women. To level the playing field, teams with only 3 men may use back-row block assist.
Regular Season Games are self-officiated. If two teams can't agree on a call, the point is re-played.
For Playoff Night, teams that are not playing a particular round will be assigned to officiate the playoff matches and teams that are eliminated from the playoff bracket will need to stay one extra round to help officiate.
League Time: Mostly Tuesdays 6:45pm to ~10:30pm and sometimes Thursdays 6:45pm to ~10:30pm. For each team, game start-times vary week-by-week and will be communicated by email in advance.
League Duration: The League will run for approximately 8 to 13 weeks (but not necessarily consecutive weeks). Depending on the number of teams that register, each team will be scheduled for 21, 24, 27 or 30 regular season games. PLUS all teams advance to playoffs.
League Fee for Individual Free Agent Players: $120-per-person for 21 regular season games PLUS playoffs; $135 for 24 regular season games PLUS playoffs; $150 for 27 regular season games PLUS playoffs; $165 for 30 regular season games PLUS playoffs.
The fee depends on the number of teams that register this season which affects the number of opponents you play against and hence the number of regular season games you will be scheduled for. In addition to regular season games, all teams advance to playoffs.
* VBmatch reserves the right to charge a higher price for individual players who consistently create issues that require 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.
League Fee for Teams: The league fee is based on the number of regular season games which depends on the number of registered teams.
For 21 regular season games PLUS playoffs : $632-per-team for Early Registration if deposit is paid by 5/19. $670-per-team if deposit is paid by 5/23. $720-per-team if deposit is paid after 5/23.
For 24 regular season games PLUS playoffs : $715-per-team for Early Registration if deposit is paid by 5/19. $755-per-team if deposit is paid by 5/23. $810-per-team if deposit is paid after 5/23.
For 27 regular season games PLUS playoffs : $800-per-team for Early Registration if deposit is paid by 5/19. $840-per-team if deposit is paid by 5/23. $900-per-team if deposit is paid after 5/23.
For 30 regular season games PLUS playoffs : $880-per-team for Early Registration if deposit is paid by 5/19. $920-per-team if deposit is paid by 5/23. $985-per-team if deposit is paid after 5/23.
Because teams sometimes register at the last minute, we will announce the number of regular season games
and the league fee by the first day of league for your team.
On average, each team will be scheduled to play 3 games (appx. 1-1/2 hours) during each week of regular season. Teams will get a 10-minute warm-up period (5 minutes of peppering and 5 minutes for hitting line prior to their first game of the evening; games are rally-scoring to 25 (win by 2; cap at 27).
Again, the league fee is based on the number of regular season games your team is scheduled to play and that depends on the number of teams that register. If we have 8 teams (compared to say 11 teams), the season will be shorter and you will be scheduled for fewer regular season games. The league fee will reflect that (i.e. the league fee will be lower for a season with 8 teams compared to a season with 11 teams).
NOTE: Based on the initial team registration fee, teams may have up to 10-players on their roster: 6 core players and 4 subs. Additional subs are allowed and must be added to the team roster but teams must pay an extra $5 for each additional player on their roster beyond the first ten (10) players. (Our insurance premium is based on the total number of unique participants. Furthermore, this policy encourages teams to play with stable rosters. If a team plays with a different lineup of players each week, the record (game scores) and ranking for that team becomes less and less meaningful.)
