OVR, Athlete’s Bill of Rights

As tryouts approach parents and players should read over and understand their rights as a player and receiving invitations to play for a club. Many players tryout for multiple clubs but how long do you have to think it over before they reply to the director? Are you bond once you except to that club? What should be done if you feel pressured to give a reply sooner than the 10 day acceptance/refusal period? Don’t feel pressured as a player or parent to except before the 10 day period.

For the 2017-2018 USAV Season the OVR designates a National Level Player Signing Day which will be the Wednesday following the first day of approved tryouts in November for girls. Girl’s Tryouts are approved to begin on Sunday, November 12, 2017. Clubs will be able to host tryouts beginning this day and National Level Players will need to decide whether to accept or decline their invitation to play by Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 9 PM.
American and Regional Level players will have the full 10 days to decide whether or not to accept the invitation.

National team tryouts have been granted a “shorter acceptance/refusal” time period; that time period is now – 3 DAYS / 72hrs.
American/Regional team tryouts are still required to use the 10 DAY acceptance/refusal time period.

Time To Register for OVR Volleyball



Parents and Players,

Its time to start your registrations for this upcoming travel season with the Ohio Valley Region. Putnam Volleyball Club will be posting all tryout dates and location in the next few days. Before you can go to any tryout, you must go to the OVR website Online Registration and follow the directions to become registered and qualified to attend tryouts. Anyone attending a tryout that is listed on this web site must be a member (with at least our $10 Tryout Membership). The clubs will probably charge their own Tryout Fee to cover the expenses of running the tryout. This is different from the Tryout Membership.

We at Putnam Volleyball Club want you to be as prepared as possible, so that the athlete only has to focus on performing their best at tryouts. There’s enough stress during that time and we do not want any added to it. Get registered early! Again, Putnam’s tryouts will be posted shortly so be looking for them to come.


Putnam Volleyball Club 2018 Important Dates

Putnam Volleyball Club will start travel tryouts and practices in November, exact dates and locations will be posted at a later date. This season Putnam is planning to have travel teams for 12R through 17R, also to provide a higher quality of teaching and learning Putnam is looking to introduce an assistant coach for every team and skill coaches to work with all age groups in practices, as needed.

Also our youth clinics will start in January for those younger none traveling youth. This gives all ages and skill levels a spot in our family to build upon their volleyball skills.

Please sign up for our e-mail here on our website and follow us on all social media to stay up to date on all Putnam’s events!



Certification Information for Players


Some players have to complete their minimum training before their next tournament’s to meet the OVR standards. If you completed this training last year it is still valid. After completing the online curriculum, you will need final evaluation on-court by a professional certified referee to become certified as a junior second referee or scorer. Line judges and Libero trackers do not need to be certified. Certifications are good for 2 years!

Follow the instructions on the link below and you will be able to enter and do the training easily. Modules do not take very long but it is OVR rule that each athlete take the training. If you have further questions on this matter please contact Director Todd.
