Accepting a spot with Instinct

Welcome to the Instinct family!

The below information is for players that are offered a position on an Instinct club team in the month of July during the NTR’s “Evaluation Period”.

There are a few things we need everyone to do prior to the official Acceptance (Signing) Day.  The North Texas Region (NTR) of USA Volleyball is the governing body of Club Volleyball for the Dallas area.  The NTR is using the Online Commitment System (OCS) to help communicate and track offers and acceptance for club teams.  This system is important to help enforce the recruiting policies that help protect for the families and clubs.

PRIOR TO ACCEPTANCE DAY:

  1. Communicate Quickly and Clearly to your Coach or Instinct Administration that you accept the offer and your daughter is 100% in for the team offered.
  2. Verify you are receiving emails from the OCS server | Click Here to Verify your Email
  3. If you did NOT play in North Texas region of USA Volleyball last year, then you will need to add your daughter to the OCS database | Click Here to add player to OCS
    • If you played on a NTR club team last year, then your name is already in the database… you do NOT want to create a duplicate record of your daughter
    • Instinct Admin will let you know if your daughter is not in the OCS prior to Acceptance day.
  4. Make sure you have an LeagueApps account.  If you signed up for tryouts, you most likely have an account as it was used to signup. | Click Here to go to LeagueApps
