We are continuing to monitor the status of COVID-19 coronavirus. In the interest of welfare and safety of our membership, USA Volleyball is eliminating the sanctioning for all USA Volleyball activities (including but not limited to events, practices, individual training sessions or anything covered by USA Volleyball insurance) effective 11:59 pm, Friday, March 13th. This ban on all USA Volleyball sanctioned activities extends through March 31st. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will provide periodic updates as information becomes more apparent. Please refer to (https://www.teamusa.org/usa-volleyball/features/usa-volleyball-response-on-coronavirus) for the latest updated information.
The SRVA will be discussing how we will work through these challenges as this announcement also affects the 18's Bid event which we were scheduled to host on the weekend of the 28th & 29th.
Thank you for your patience, feedback and support as we work through this together.
SRVA will follow USA Volleyball guidelines and cancel all sanctioned events (practices and tournaments) thru March 22, 2020. We will continuously monitor the situation and provide additional updates as warranted.

**UPDATE FROM DIRECTOR ROSE POWELL**
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been paying close attention to the developing health concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We care about your well-being and about providing a place for you to enjoy playing sports and socializing with your teammates. At this time, the CDC has asserted that the current health risk to Americans is low.
As such, all RCVC programs will continue as planned unless otherwise communicated by RCVC.
We will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and keep you posted with any changes. Additionally, we are taking added precautions — engaging in regular deep cleaning and disinfecting — to help mitigate the risk. Should we decide to restrict usage, we will update you.
What Our Team is Doing
With our own coaches we are adhering to the CDC’s recommendations, including:
Help Us Keep Members Safe and Take Appropriate Precautions
To ensure that RCVC remains a safe place to play, we encourage each of you to work with us in taking these important steps to protect yourself and the community at-large.
We’ll Keep You Updated
Your health and safety are extremely important to RCVC, and our goal is to ensure that we continue to be a safe place to play the sport you love. As we continue to monitor the latest CDC and WHO information on the Coronavirus, we will keep you updated on any changes to our operations or procedures.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for taking this seriously and doing your part to keep calm and play on.
