Covid 19 (UPDATE)
USAV has advised venues nationwide to consider suspending or cancelling events over the next couple of weeks. At this time, any such action remains at the discretion of the hosting club, but given the potential to affect some of our tournament considerations, we will be watching this development daily. Several big tournaments outside of our region have been cancelled – example: some national qualifiers – so please be patient as the federation, and indeed our society, negotiates this troubled time.
From the Commissioner of CHRVA:
“We are aware that there have been a few cases diagnosed with the Covid 19 in our Region. Both USA Volleyball and our Chesapeake Region personnel continue to monitor the situation.
“In the best interest of safety we will adopt the following procedure for the remainder of the indoor volleyball season for our Chesapeake Region tournaments. Our athletes and referees will no longer shake hands at the beginning and end of each match. Here will be our modified match protocol:
“1. 1st Referee goes to the stand.
“2. Upon the signal from the 1st Referee, the starting 6 players will go to the end line.
“3. 1st Referee will beckon for the players to immediately go to their starting rotation position.
“4. 2nd Referee will check the line-ups.
“5. At the end of the match, the 1st Referee will release the players to their benches.
“Thank you for your support, Lisa D. ~ CHRVA Commissioner.”
