News for you 

Change to Thursday NP Play

As of Thursday January 16, the 3.5+ 11 am play at North Pointe is reverting back to open (drop-in) paddle-box play. Reserved play for this session is suspended until more snowbirds return and/or there is evidence that it would be in high demand. Thanks for the input folks!

Ratings and Clinics Update

The Jan 27th level 3.0 rating clinic is now full.  Watch our news for the notice regarding the next available rating clinics -- which will likely be in March. For the March clinics and beyond, we will have a new registration system in place.  You will register and pay online rather than emailing. 

If you are not club rated via one of these clinics and are not tournament rated, you may play at any session on the calendar marked for "All" play or for 2.0 or 2.5 level play.

Members must be rated at the 3.5 level to play at 3.5 or 3.5+ events, and must be rated at the 3.0 level to play in 3.0 level play.

3.0 and 3.5 Shoot Out Update

Shoot out registrations are full for both 3.0 sessions on alternate Tuesdays at Sturgeon and 3.5 sessions Friday evenings at Vital Grandin.   Those who have registered will get regular invitations to sign up for particular sessions via Sign Up Genius.


Mentoring Update

In response to member and coach suggestions, our mentoring sessions are now divided into two sessions: the first is 6:00 to 7:45 pm and the second is 7:45 to 9:30 pm.   Each session is now capped at 12, so although the sessions are shorter, the actual play time remains high as no one is waiting to rotate in.   To ensure a prompt start, please show up at least 10 minutes before your session starts.  Registration continues to be as described on the Training page under the Development menu.

Volunteer Opportunities

The position of Ratings Coordinator has now been filled.  Welcome to Gerry Gartner and Karen Cabot -- our new ratings coordinator team. Thanks to all those who stepped forward. 

Watch this space for an upcoming request for a volunteer to fill our Facebook Coordinator position. No experience needed -- very easy to learn job - and easy to do too!

After filling that job, we'll be looking for a couple of volunteers to join our equipment management team.  Many hands make light work!


 

Organized Play and Visitors

Would you like to bring a friend, or have your visiting son or daughter play with you for a session or two? We have found that visitors make up less than 2% of our indoor players, and being good neighbors, we welcome visitors to many of our indoor and outdoor sessions.  Check our calendar on this site, and bring a guest to any session that doesn't say "Members Only."  Of course, guests should also have the skill level required for the session, for sessions designated at the 3.0 level or higher.


Sunday at Sturgeon

Play started at Sturgeon Heights on Sunday January 5. It was nearly continuous play as only 14 attended the 9 am 3.0+ play.

On a trial basis, the first and third Sundays of the month will be for 3.0+ play and the second and fourth Sundays will be 3.5+ play. After looking at the data at the end of January, a decision will be made to determine if play continues for both levels in February and beyond.
