PVA Spring 2020 Season Cancelled
March 24, 2020, 12:12 pm
Dear PVA Members,
In light of ongoing developments during this unprecedented time, the PVA Spring 2020 season has been cancelled. Some teams already registered for the season and we understand many families are under constrained financial circumstances. We will work expeditiously to return full registration fees this week.
PVA evaluated innumerable ideas for delaying cancellation with the hope of holding a Spring 2020 season. Similarly, we have been evaluating how to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the summer outdoor season. As of right now, the situation is too unpredictable, thus we are adopting a wait-and-see approach. We desperately wish circumstances were different. We will continue to monitor the situation and are developing options to quickly resume playing volleyball (whether indoor or outdoor) as soon as it is safe and facilities are accessible.
We cannot thank you enough for your continued support as we navigate this public health crisis together.
We hope everyone stays safe and healthy!

Dear PVA Members:
After closely monitoring the risks and impacts of COVID-19 on a daily basis, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our players and referees, their families, and the communities in which we live and work, to cancel all remaining PVA Winter 2020 season matches (including playoffs) and the March 18th Managers and Free Agents Open Gym. The COVID-19 pandemic is an unusual and dynamic situation. Our top priority is the health and safety of every member of the PVA community. PVA has, and will continue to, rely on the guidance of federal, state, and local agencies and medical health professionals for direction on how to respond to COVID-19.
We understand that canceling will be a huge disappointment and, due to the short notice, an inconvenience to many. To be candid, we made this decision knowing members of the Board of Directors are on teams affected by the cancellation and they too will be losing access to a sport they are passionate about playing. We desperately wish circumstances were different. In the end, we must do our best to take steps to support local, regional, and national efforts to limit the risks associated with COVID-19.
We know many will have questions about how this decision will impact the Spring 2020 season. PVA will continue to evaluate the status of COVID-19 and our options, and we assure you we will provide updates in as timely of a manner as possible. If current events impact the Spring 2020 season, we will provide appropriate refunds to those that have already paid.
This situation is far from ideal and circumstances are likely to continue to evolve daily. We sincerely appreciate your support and understanding and hope this decision today reflects our dedication to the long-term health and welfare of our membership and community.
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this public health crisis together. Until we see you on the court again, we hope everyone stays safe and healthy!
