USA’S TARA CROSS-BATTLE (3RD FROM LEFT) TAKES HER SPOT IN THE VOLLEYBALL HALL OF FAME.…PAGE 4
IN THIS ISSUE
FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Welcome to the November edition of Vol-eNews!
This month we have an exciting issue that is packed full of the latest Florida volleyball news. I
want to start by welcoming our two newest Jr. Administrative Board (JAB) members to the Florida
Region leadership team:
п‚·
п‚·
Jose Morales, Tallahassee Juniors in District 1
Pedro Davila, Toreros Volleyball Academy in District 2
Both of these club directors won the recent JAB election and will serve a two-year term that
begins on Nov 1, 2014 and goes through Oct 31, 2016. Thank you to Lori Eaton and Russel
Williams for their service to the Florida Region as JAB representatives over the past many years.
I had the great pleasure of attending the recent induction ceremonies at the International
Volleyball Hall of Fame in Holyoke, MA (the birthplace of our great sport). This is always a great
reminder of the amazing people that have overcome great obstacles to accomplish impressive
feats and make a positive impact on the sport of volleyball. Six inductees attended from Russia,
Czech Republic, Netherlands, Brazil (x2), and our very own Tara Cross-Battle from the USA. Be
sure to read the article in this month’s edition of Vol-eNews and visit www.VolleyHall.org to learn
more about the International Volleyball Hall of Fame.
With the addition of our new Sitting Volleyball initiative here in Florida, we can now confidently say
that we offer virtually every version of volleyball that you can possibly play. Sitting Volleyball
offers a fun and challenging option for both disabled and able bodied athletes. Please join us at
an upcoming Sitting Volleyball open house near you to learn more about the game and get
involved. We challenge you to play at least one game of Sitting Volleyball during the 2014/2015
season!

is very proud of the coaches, staff, and athletes.

USA’S TARA CROSS-BATTLE JOINS THE 2014
INTERNATIONAL VOLLEYBALL HALL OF FAME…
The Florida Region was honored to be in attendance at the 2014 International Volleyball Hall
of Fame Induction Celebration! USA’S Tara Cross-Battle was among the six inductees in the
class of 2014. Other inductees included Joop Alberda (Netherlands), Nalbert Bitencourt
(Brazil), Miloslav Ejem (Czech Republic), Sandra Pires (Brazil) and Roza Salikhova (USSR).
Tara’s claim to fame was when she became the United States' first four-time Olympic
Games volleyball player having competed in the Games in 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2004. In
her debut Olympics, she helped the United States to the bronze medal in Barcelona.
Upon receiving her honor on stage, with her daughter and son by her side, she summed up
her outlook on her volleyball career. Tara said, “I went from a silly game, to the Hall of Fame.”
Congratulations to Tara! If you would like to check out more pictures from the 2014 Hall of

EVENT-SHOUT-OUTS CONTINUED…
OFFICIAL’S UPDATE…
By Sue Wainio-Oato, Official’s Coordinator
The new season is here and there is a
new rule in effect for team jerseys when a
Libero is used in the match. It is now
required that either the Libero or their
teammates wear a solid color jersey. The
solid color jersey must clearly contrast
from the predominant color(s) of the
teammates’ jersey. Predominant colors
are those that appear on approximately
half of the body of the uniform jersey.
To be considered solid colored:
a. Sleeves must be the same color as the
body of the jersey.
b. Piping/trim not exceeding 1 inch in total
at its widest point may be placed
along the seams and may be a different
color than the uniform jersey.
c. Lettering and collars can be a different
color than the body of the jersey.
d. Numbers must be a contrasting color
and meet all other specifications in Rule
4.3.3 and associated USAV regulations.
The information is posted on the Florida
Region web site, click here for details.
Also on that site you will find a link to a
video that explains the new solid color
jersey rule in detail, with examples of
compliant and non-compliant jerseys. It is
recommended that club officials who are
ordering uniforms watch this important
video from USA Volleyball in order to be
certain that the uniforms for the club will
be compliant with the new rule, should
the club and / or teams utilize a Libero
during their matches.

QUICK TIP FOR COACHES…
As a coach, it is your responsibility to recognize, reduce and respond to bullying among
your athletes. One of the greatest lessons athletes take away from sport is the
experience of being on a team where coaches and individuals support one another.
Actions that demean or intimidate athletes, either physically or emotionally, can affect
performance and team cohesion. Since bullying often occurs among peers, coaches
can set an example with a zero-tolerance policy and emphasize teamwork and mutual
support. Giving athletes a way to report behavior without fear of reprisal is also
important.
Examples of bullying include both physical and emotional behaviors:
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
Hitting, pushing, punching, beating, biting, striking, kicking, choking or slapping
Throwing at or hitting an athlete with objects such as sporting equipment
Teasing, ridiculing and intimidating
Spreading rumors or making false statements
Using electronic communications, social media or other technology to harass,
frighten, intimidate or humiliate (“cyber bullying”)
Visit the SafeSport website for more tips!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - Starting in 2013, girl's indoor junior
club directors are no longer required to attend the Annual Jr. Forum
Meeting unless you were a new club director in the 2013/2014
season and did not attend the Annual Jr. Forum Meeting in
November of 2013 (these club directors are required to attend the
Annual Jr. Forum Meeting in November 2014). Also, any new club
director(s) of any club, no matter how many years the club has
been active, must attend the Annual Jr. Forum Meeting in
November 2014. The format of the new meetings has been
changed to an educational/best practices format. The Florida Region
staff will now prepare an annual written update and distribute that to
all clubs via email and on this page of the region website. Note:
Clubs that are required to attend and do not will incur a $500 fine
and will not be recognized as a USAV club in good standing until the
fine has been paid in full. This is a standing mandate from the Florida
Region Board of Directors.
