  • Players off of the court or not participating in the game will stay 6 ft apart in an effort to promote social distancing.

  • Players will need to bring their own bottle of hand sanitizer and will be encouraged to use is often.  
  • During this unusual time as well as to promote fairness for the many opinions and viewpoints on COVID-19, all players, families and spectators must agree to be kind, courteous and understanding to others as well as practice social distancing whenever possible.  YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE (WITHOUT REFUND) IF YOU ARE FOUND IN VIOLATION. 

**We reserve the right to deny players demonstrating signs and/or symptoms of cough, cold and/or allergies access to courts.  


ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Differences in the Indoor vs Outdoor Game

There ARE differences in the outdoor game when compared to the indoor game.  There will be an orientation at the beginning of the first few nights of league play.  (This is done for late registrants, those missing days b/c of travel, etc.)

What Do I Need To Bring to the League 

Someone on your team will need to have an outdoor volleyball. We have a few that we can loan out, but an outdoor volleyball is something players should have. We recommend the Wilson AVP outdoor volleyball.  These can be purchased online or at local sporting good stores. 

Players should also bring their own supply of water as there is not a water fountain on site. Players should bring a sweat towel, bug spray, their volleyball (if they have one). Chairs, blankets, pop-up tents, coolers and music is allowed ~ and encouraged.  We find that many families enjoy coming a bit early and picnicking with other friends and families.  We do ask that you gather with respect to spacial and social distancing and make sure to allow others to have their own personal (family) space.


REGISTRATION DETAILS

Each parent/guardian will REGISTER THEIR OWN PLAYER.

This is so that each parent can submit the waiver for their child, so that no parent is responsible for the entire team fee, and this also gives those registering the option to let us know what help your player needs with regards to finding partner(s).   Registrants will be asked to select from the following:

A) I have a team and my partner's name is _______

B) I do not have a team.  Please help place me with a partner.

C) I am unable to commit for the entire summer but would like to be a substitute for times when a player is out of town or on vacation

We will need each person that plans to participate in the league to complete registration and play their own fee.  Each person will pay the $50.00 + $2.50 Sport Engine processing fee.
