Players will be screened by staff (or screened through an app)– we will ask about symptoms and exposure to others with symptoms. If you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with symptoms, you will be asked to leave. If you wish to speed up the process, please open this link on your phonehttps://www.cdc.gov/screening/index.html, answer the questions, and display that you have passed to staff as you enter the building
Effective January 1, 2021, masks must be worn at all times, including during play. The only exception will be while seated at a table.
All players should bring their own hand sanitizer if possible and sanitize their hands and arms before and after playing. Sanitizer will be available for those who do not have their own.
All players should bring a small towel or something similar to wipe their faces as necessary. Coaches will be reminding junior players to avoid touching their faces.
We encourage all players to bring their own full water bottles to play/practice. We do have bottle filling stations available.
Once screening is complete the athlete goes straight to the court he or she is assigned to.
Junior players may enter the gym no more than 5 minutes before their practice time to comply with guidelines. Adult league players may enter when indicated it is okay to do so by staff.
Please do not bring any unnecessary equipment, backpacks, etc. into the gym. Per CDC guidelines, belongings should be kept separate. If you bring items in, please keep them separate from others.
Revised 1/1/2021: We are unable to accommodate parents during practices (due to high numbers of players/teams) but may be able to accommodate a limited number for tournaments. The decision to allow parents during tournaments is dependent on the organization hosting the tournament (i.e. USAV Old Dominion Region, AAU, ACPL, etc.). Please check with your coach regarding guidelines for tournaments.
Revised 1/1/2021: Limited spectators will be allowed for adult leagues at this time. We still must ensure that we remain below a limit of 250 total individuals and everyone must wear masks and maintain social distancing.
During juniors’ practices, coaches will closely monitor players and demand social distancing whenever possible, reminding players not to touch their faces, etc. This includes team huddles and pre-practice conversations especially.
To maintain social distancing in our bathrooms, every other stall and sink will be blocked.
Arrive dressed and ready to play so that we may maintain social distancing in our bathrooms.
Junior players should be picked up immediately after practice concludes as there will be nowhere for them to sit or congregate. We must prepare the building for the next group of players that will be in the building.
All volleyballs will be sanitized after each junior team’s use and before the next team’s use. Teams cannot simply pass the cart to the next group. Volleyballs will not be shared with other teams without being cleaned. Warm-up balls provided for adult leagues will be sanitized between each group of matches. Currently, adult league teams play at 6 and 7 or 8:15 and 9:15. Volleyballs will be sanitized between the start of the 6: match and the start of the 8:15 match.
NO sharing water bottles. NO drink carriers at tournaments or practice.
As needed (during congested times), we will have separate entrance and exit.
