2024 House Q&A

1. Why is there an increase in registration fees this year?
   - We have increased the registration fee from $100 to $125 this year for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we aim to make participation more accessible by offering free or discounted registration for coaches and assistant coaches, which we hope will attract more interest and involvement in our program. Secondly, the increase helps us cover rising operating costs, ensuring that we can continue to provide a high-quality experience for all participants.

2. How will the increase in registration fees benefit participants?
   - By offering free or discounted registration for coaches and assistant coaches, we are investing in our coaching staff, which ultimately enhances the quality of the program for all participants.

3. Why are DIBS volunteer hours required this year?
   - Requiring DIBS volunteer hours aligns us with other sports programs in ARAA and ensures that we have the necessary support to run a successful season. These volunteer hours are crucial for various tasks such as hall monitoring at rented facilities, assisting with Youth Night activities, and fulfilling other essential roles like line judging and refereeing.

4. How many volunteer hours are required per athlete, and what is the maximum per family?
   - Each athlete is required to complete 2 volunteer hours, with a maximum of 4 hours per family. We believe this allocation strikes a balance between individual responsibility and family participation while ensuring that we have sufficient volunteer support across the program.

5. Are DIBS hours in addition to other volunteer commitments, such as those agreed upon through Grant in Aid?
   - Yes, DIBS volunteer hours are in addition to any commitments made through Grant in Aid or other volunteer programs. We encourage all participants and their families to fulfill their DIBS hours to contribute to the success of the program and support our community.

Fall House volunteer coaches needed!

Our volunteer coaches are vital to the success of our house volleyball program.  Volleyball experience or knowledge is not necessary as this is an introductory league.  ARAA Volleyball's goal is to assign 2 coaches to each team who would share responsibilities. Skills and rules coaching clinics hosted by Anoka High School Volleyball and ARAA Volleyball are provided, age appropriate practice plans/drills are distributed and each coach will have access to online coaching videos.  

Volunteer today and support your local community through this fun and rewarding coaching opportunity!  Sign up to coach during player registration or email  if you are interested. 

All coaches involved in ARAA are required to have yearly background checks completed.
