Middle School League 7th-9th Graders

Middle School League 7th - 9th Grade Volleyball 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.

The Middle School League for 7th – 9th Graders is designed to provide an opportunity for boys and girls who do not have a school volleyball team to practice and compete in the fall. This league is more competitive than a rec league and is designed for players with prior volleyball experience. Players with limited to no volleyball experience should participate in Jumpin’ Juniors instead. Matches will be played 6 on 6 with 12 players on a roster where all players will receive relatively equal playing time.  There will be modified serve rules in order to promote rallies and player and coaches will referee matches as well as compete during pool play.  Each team has an RVC coach and practices will focus on development and team concepts.
