Spring Tournament with a Difference!

Working with Volleball NSW and several other Sydney based clubs; Freeezone is actively encouraging greater participation of females in our events. Yes! It is POSITIVE discrimination; but in the nicest possible way; inclusion for all and those who can field mixed teams have the potential for cash prizes.

1.   Teams which finish 1st and 2nd qualify for cash back incentives
2.  Best Uniform – innovative, funny, coordinated and based on a common theme

Here are some important changes to rules of the tournament for year 2012 (for those who came to Sunday Training today and grabbed a registration form, there are changes to some rules):
  • to encourage participation of female volleyball players, we are offering a cash prize for winning AND runner-up teams (in ALL A, B, and C Divisions) that have a minimum of 2 female players AND keeps 2 female players on court at all times (this is especially important for teams that wish to use 1 of their 2 only female players as a libero). There must be 2 female players on court, not benched, AT ALL TIMES (unless they suffer from an injury during the tournament and cannot participate further).
  • Teams with less than 2 female players can compete and will receive medals as per normal, but will not receive a cash bonus in the case that they come 1st or 2nd in their division.
  • For every missing female player (minimum is 2 per team), a male must cross-dress by wearing a bra and wig at least. (i.e. if your team only has 1 female player, you must nominate 1 guy to cross-dress, and in the case that you have no female players, 2 guys must cross-dress). Either way, such teams are not eligible for the cash prize. There are no restrictions on how these ‘special’ guys can play on court.
  • There is a prize for the team with the best uniform in the whole tournament (to be judged by the tournament committee). ‘Best’ defined here as the most innovative, funny and well coordinated based on a common theme.
