Due to capacity restrictions and guidelines put in place by the venue, teams will be limited to 10 spectator tickets max per team, and the team representative must purchased their tickets in bulk at the entrance. The team representative will then be required to distribute them to parents outside of the venue.

 

Tickets cost $6 per event. Individual parents will not be allowed to purchase tickets at the door, everything must be purchased by the team representative.

Wave 1: 4:45 PM & 5:45 PM

Wave 2: 7:00 PM & 8:00 PM

Score will be kept with rally scoring of sets to 25. Matches will be best two out of three with the third set going to 15.

Each team will have the court for 7 minutes for warmups.

We will have electronic scoreboards that will be cleaned after each match with the sanitation provided by the facility. 

There will be no post game handshakes.

To keep things moving between team matches, exit the bench area immediately and any team meeting can be held off the court or in the team area. This will allow cleaning to take place and the next team to take the bench.

Social media coverage will be on the Prep Dig Twitter and Instagram accounts. All written coverage from the event will be posted to PrepDig.com during the week following the event.

PDFL is geared towards high school Varsity and JV teams.  Teams are encouraged to be from the same high school, however the league is independent and we are leaving it open as to how the roster is filled.  If there are athletes from high schools who cannot field a team, they may combine with other schools to complete their roster.   There is no maximum or minimum for a roster. Teams who are competing for a WIAA sanctioned team in the fall are not allowed to play in this league.

This a question we have received quite often the past week.  This league is for teams who will not have a fall season.  We will not have fall high school teams reserve a spot in the league. They will be allowed to participate in our Saturday tournaments at the Community First Champion Center (September 12, 19, 26, and October 17) if their seasons get canceled. Teams who are in season and currently playing on a school sanctioned high school team would not be allowed to play in this league.

Prep Dig will comply with the Wisconsin state mandate of wearing a mask indoors which we have done with our recent events and athletes have been absolute rock stars in wearing a mask while playing.  September 28, 2020 is when the mask mandate expires in Wisconsin and we will monitor the situation closely, working with the CFCC in regards to their mask policy as well.

We want all teams to have a “Team Rep”.  This would be someone that Prep Dig can contact throughout the season and can also relay information to the whole team.  This would be someone we would contact about ticket information for the league as well as any other details for the team.  The “Team Rep” should be a parent or an adult that will be able to handle communication and logistics between Prep Dig and their team.

All teams must have a “Team Rep”, but as far as a coach it will be up to the decision of the team.  High school coaches are allowed to coach, but we strongly encourage teams to check if that is allowed via their school district and WIAA.  Most teams will have former players, parents, or other coaches that have a connection with the team, or some teams may just coach themselves.  If teams coach themselves, they need to designate a captain.

No. Aside from PDFL, Prep Dig will be running four Saturday tournaments at the Community First Champion Center (September 12, 19, 26, and October 17). Teams can choose as many tournaments as they would like to participate in. Between PDFL and our Saturday tournaments, athletes may get up to 20-25 matches this fall season.
