Middle School League 5th-6th Graders

Middle School League 5th - 6th Grade League
  •  
    • In accordance with CDC guidelines, we recommend that all individuals, whether fully vaccinated or not, wear a mask while indoors. Effective 9/15/2021 –

      1. All junior participants (under 18) and adults who are indoors with junior participants (coaches, parents, spectators, officials, etc.) must wear a mask. This is due to the low percentage of youth, ages 12-17, who are vaccinated and the inability of anyone under 12 to be vaccinated.
      2. All employees not fully vaccinated must wear a mask whenever in an RVC facility. This includes referees, front desk staff, and café staff. We strongly recommend that all employees wear a mask when in a customer-facing role (i.e., referees, front desk staff, and café).

      If an exposure occurs, the following CDC recommended guidelines will be followed –

      1. Exposed participant(s) must quarantine if they have been in close contact(within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless they have been fully vaccinated.
      2. Other participants who may have been exposed (teams, teammates, etc.) will be notified of potential exposure.
      3. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.
      4. After quarantine,
      • Watch for symptoms until 14 days after exposure.
      • If you have symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your local public health authority or healthcare provider.

Middle School League for 5th – 6th Graders is designed to get younger volleyball players more experience and touches on the volleyball. Created with the younger player in mind, this volleyball league has lower nets, smaller courts, and lighter than normal volleyballs – all to help players with proper skill development and confidence on the court. Matches will be played 4 on 4 with only 9 players on a roster again helping promote more touches on the volleyball per player – winning is not the ultimate goal. Each team is run by a parent volunteer with an RVC master coach leading practices and drills.
