VOLUME 79 ISSUE 10

The OSC Board keeps asking for volunteers to step up

Do you enjoy playing golf, darts, pool, softball, and volleyball?All these sports are arranged by the chair of each sport. Yes, it does take time to make these arrangements. We need more people who will take their time to chair a sport or to handle an executive position. It's so easy to sit back and let someone else work for the continuance of the club. If this does not change, the club will cease to exist after 2020."

Volleyball - September Update

All leagues are up and running! Co-Ed, Women’s and Men’s! Good luck to all teams and players for the Fall 2019 session. Pride is always the best prize, but we do have t-shirts for the first and second place teams in each league. So play your hearts out!

Tips on the court

1. Be respectful! Remember as much as we all love volleyball, and our emotions can get away from us, it is just a game and we are here for fun and making new friends. Be respectful and polite to the refs. They are only one person and cannot see everything. Help them out, be honest and keep your cool when you disagree. If you have a problem with the ref, talk to your captain, and they will address the issue.

2. Talk, talk, and talk some more. Communication is so important in volleyball. You need to know, who is getting the ball and where the ball is going. Call out ‘mine’ and watch your setter’s signals. Communication is the key to winning games.

3. Be positive. Nobody wants to play with a negative person. There will be times when you get down on yourself, learn to let the point go and move on to the next. Pick your team mate up when they are down. Cheer and celebrate together. You win as a team, you lose as a team.

OSC Volleyball Committee looking for members

Did you know that Omaha Sports Club is a non-for-profit organization and the Volleyball Committee is run by volunteers? Volunteers who play volleyball, have full time jobs, families, and multiple responsibilities. The more members that are on the committee, the lighter the load is on everyone and the smoother volleyball leagues run. We like to have volleyball players from various leagues be involved so all leagues are represented. Skill sets can be anything from writing, making calls, following up on emails from interested players, advertising, recruiting, graphic design, keeping up the Facebook page & OSC website, etc. On average, it could just be one hour of your time a month. We have current committee members who will rotate out after the Fall session. If we have no volunteers to run Volleyball, unfortunately Volleyball will not continue for the Spring 2020 session. Email volleyball@omahasportsclub.com to participate. Hope to hear from you soon.

2019 OSC Golf - October

Results of league play will be shared at the year-end league banquet. The banquet is scheduled for Tuesday, October 8 at the Bel Air Banquet Hall (same place as last year). The banquet is free to all league participants. Guest are welcome for a $20 fee. Social Hour begins at 6:00, with dinner served at 7:00. Please RSVP to golf@omahasportsclub.com. Deadline for response is Oct 2!!! The Sweater Day September golf outing was not complete at the time of this publication. Results will be published later. A person has volunteered to become the 2020 season golf chairperson! However, we will still need a new league manager for the Wednesday Tregaron league. If you are interested or have questions, please contact golf@omahasportsclub.com.
