A little follow up on Jeff's letter.  First Volleyball Institute of Minnesota (VIM) is a private enterprise in Mendota Hieghts.  They are set up to support volleyball and nothing but volleyball.  Their courts have only one set of lines and no basketball goals or any other obstructions on the ceiling.  They have six courts.  They will be very strong in Junior volleyball but are setting up for all levels.  If you go there do not bring your own balls, all balls are provided by them.  

What jeff refferenced is what they are calling Volleyball Heaven.  It is a lead in for some of their leagues.  The way it works, you go there with a team, partial team, or individually and on the first night you be evaluated and placed in the appopriate level league.  Partials and individuals will be joined into teams.  There will be womens, mens and coed leagues.

VIM is doing many other things such as tournements, clinics, open gyms, day leagues, and rentals.  Rental is $25/hour/court.  They furnish 10 balls.  USVBA gets a cost break.

As Jeff said, call Ann at 686-5131, she is more than happy to talk about what they are doing and put you on the mailing list.

They should have opened 2/4 so there may be open gyms to check the place out.

There is a coed power torunement (no AA teams) in Rosemont on 2/21.  At this point they have only 3 teams registered are are probably going to cancel.  If you want to enter I would suggest calling 423-3986 tonight.  Our team is one of the 3 and I do not want to see it canceled.
