TSU Volleyball Update!

Our Beginning Teacher's Committee [BTC] is busy finalizing all the arrangements for our TSU Volleyball Tournament at Pope John Paul Secondary from 4-8pm this Friday April 20th. There will be another official notice coming out. The TSU office is very busy, so let me share the basic details with you as Executive Liaison for the committee. You have been sending me a lot of questions and it has been hard to reply to them individually, so many of the answers are or will be posted here too. I will continue to update this post until the games, so please stay tuned.

OT's without a school may send me your name and we will find a team place for you, so don't miss out!.

Okay. So far we have 6 Competitive League Teams registered from Neil McNeil, Loretto Abbey, St. Basil's, JP2, Michael Power, and Cardinal Newman.

So far we have 3 Recreational Teams: Cardinal Newman and 2 from PJ2.

There are one or two teams who haven't told me which league they want, or given me their team member names. I sent out emails today for confirmation purposes for all the teams I have registered, and to get the missing info from the others. If your team does not get a email then contact me asap so you don't get left out!

Registration will remain open until Thursday morning when we will create the roster.

The 3 gyms have been booked at JP 2, with set up taken care of. However, we are very short on referees, so if interested or you know somebody who might be let me know asap.

In other news, in response to your questions and so on;

The tournament is intended for active TSU members. Some teams are short one or two players. In such cases you may register an OT or past teacher from your school, as long as they are still a TSU member. LTO's count as a regular member of your school for tournament registration purposes. Student teachers from your school may also play on your team. OT's who submit their name to me but don't have a school will be available for rotation or to top off your team numbers.

You may not sign up "ringers" or other pros using the above as an excuse to make up and register a super team.

Both Leagues are Co-ed.

There aren't any fees to register or play in the tournament, the cost will be taken from the BTC budget.

Two trophies will be awarded by our host BTC after the tournament, one for each league.

All team players and school members who come to the gym to cheer you on are invited to our ceremony afterwards, the location of which will not be disclosed until during the games as usual. We will provide food and refreshments once again for the awards ceremony and social. Wink. Wink. Wink. Please don't be a party crasher if you are not involved! It's very tacky. Join in the games!

Remember, if you still wish to register a team, by all means do so, but please email me by Thursday morning when we sit down to do the roster.

You can use my board, hotmail or gmail email account to reach me if necessary.

Most of the teams are from our east end schools, lots in the competitive league, but the recreational too. What's up west enders? Does the east rule? Please do not tell me you are afraid of their prowess!!! Nay! Sign up a team now to uphold your school honour, and maybe show the others how the game should be played.

We will be arriving at 3pm Thursday to set up for the games and plan to start at 4pm prompt. Usually the games wrap up by 8pm and we head off to the awards ceremony and social.
