My name is John Hughes and I can't believe I'm starting my 22nd year as your commissioner. Please feel free to call me at the region office. Regular office hours are from 8:00AM-5:00PM MONDAY THRU FRI. The office phone does have a voice mailbox and your calls will be answered so please leave your name and number. The office e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
The WEVA web site has received a major face-lift with features and updates being added continually in every attempt to keep all members advised to the happening and services of the Region. A section has been added called FAQ (frequently asked questions) and is added to very often, this will save time waiting for contact with Region office. E-mail me with all new questions and I will reply. You may see your question on the site.
The on-line registration system, (referred to as WEBPOINT) is now in its 11th year and continues to improve. We added electronic signatures, background checks as well as all other forms. We now have payment on line by credit card available for all registrations and mandatory for all juniors, exception need to be handled by the region office. WEVA still requires the Driver ID #'s to be entered, but the need for the signed waivers to be kept in the region office has been eliminated. The registration database is on-line and you are now able to update your information throughout the year. Some of you are still using your e-mail address as your user name; I request that you change that to something shorter and easier to remember. Don't forget to write down your username and password, as you need them to renew your membership!
We now have a Board of Directors consisting 9 Voting members and are now directing the region from committees. Please contact your representatives about being involved with the committees; our goal this season is to have at least one representative per club on one of these committees. This year’s WEVA Boy’s Championship tournament will be held at the BNCC in West Seneca. The Armory in Rochester and east High School will host the Girl’s Bid Tournament and the WEVA Festival. Last year WEVA added three new events to the schedule, Rally I, II,& III to give more Eastern area competition. Congratulations to all athletes and clubs who participated in post-season events last season and USA Nationals, representing WEVA this past year. All age groups were represented last year and each made our region proud.
Last year we continued to set a record number of memberships, of which 80% were again juniors. Please thank our club directors and coaches for providing this opportunity to participate in our great sport. Volleyball is one of those sports we can participate in for many years. USA volleyball has members well into their senior years. We ask those of you who have finished playing club as juniors to help with the next group coming up, by helping coach, or supporting club in other ways.
Please support your region by purchasing your molten balls and products from the region store. If you need assistance, please contact me at the Region office.
Thank you and have a great season!
