What's the difference between a Friendship Tournament and a Power League?  
Friendship- A fun tournament designed to get ALL girls playing. It is not for ranking and is a time for every girl to be getting playing time.
Power League- These tournaments are once a month and rankings are directly related to how well we do in this tournaments. We play to win so that we can go up to the higher levels. Girls are not guaranteed playing time.

My athlete plays another sport.  Can they do both? 
Yes they can. Wave encourages multi-sport athletes. We believe that it is only beneficial if your daughter plays more than 1 sport, not only athletically, but physically it has been show to prevent injuries as they work different muscles with different sports. Colleges also look at multi-sport athletes more often than single sport athletes. Below is a chart on excused/unexcused practices. 

Excused vs unexcused missed practices/tournaments:

Excused
Unexcused
Another Sport-Prearranged with Coach
Another Sport- spur of the moment
Sick- vomit, diarrhea, fever
Sick- tired, cold
Funeral
Too much homework
Wedding

Injured

***If you are sick with a cold and can’t play, you still need to come to practice. This shows the other girls that you are committed and allows you to still be a part of team. It also provides you an opportunity to be learning and not missing anything that they may be going over at practice. For example, defense, serve receive positioning, blocking, etc.***

What is your policy for inclement weather?
