Coed Ghost Player Rule

January 11, 2016, 2:37 pm

The PVA Board has voted to do away with the old exemption rule which allowed a coed team to play with three men and two women only once a season, and instead to adopt the Ghost Player Rule as discussed at the Fall managers meeting. The rule is effective as of the beginning of Winter season and is stated as follows:

Ghost Player Rule

This rule automatically goes into effect for a coed team any time that team chooses, or is forced by circumstance, to play with only five players, and those players consist of three men and two women.

The team playing with three men and two women must leave a space in their lineup where the missing woman should be. If the missing woman would be in the front row, there would be only two front row players for that rotation. When the missing woman would normally serve, the serve goes to the opposing team, like a side-­out but without any point awarded.

2015 Fall Managers Meeting Notes

September 25, 2015, 12:06 pm

Thanks to everyone who attended the Fall 2015 Managers Meeting! Here are the main takeaways:

  • Membership Requirements - The PVA Board clarified registration and membership requirements. An individual player is granted membership and eligibility to play in PVA leagues when they are part of a properly registered team. Proper registration must be completed and requires the following:
    1. Payment of team fee
    2. Completed team roster
    3. Completed and signed waiver for each player on the roster. Each player must complete and sign a waiver once per fiscal year--September 1st to August 31st.
    4. New: Email address for each player on the roster
  • Bylaws - The PVA Board presented proposed amendments to the PVA Bylaws. The managers present voted to approve the amended PVA Bylaws which have been posted on the website on the Rules & Regs page.
  • Ghost Player Rule - The PVA Board presented a proposal to consider implementation of the "ghost player" rule in coed leagues for situations where a team needs to play with three men and two women. Feedback from the managers was mostly positive and the board plans to vote on formally adopting this rule during the next PVA Board meeting. Note that until that vote occurs, the rules are updated, and teams and referees are notified, the old exemption rule is still in place. That means for now, teams may only play with three men and two women once during a season. Stay tuned for an update on this issue that will become effective for the Winter Season.

Regarding the collection of email addresses: The amended PVA Bylaws provide membership and voting rights to each individual PVA player rather than only team managers. This change was made to conform the PVA Bylaws to applicable state and federal law governing 501(c)(7) non-profit athletic associations. To effect this change, PVA must collect names and email addresses for every player in order to provide notice of any elections and to provide an opportunity for every player to vote. PVA will be modifying the roster submission form in the future to include a place to submit player email addresses, but for now they may be submitted on the waivers in the field provided. Note that all communication with teams outside of required messages to all members regarding voting will still go through the team manager.

Player Eligibility Decision

September 3, 2015, 9:54 am

Dear Managers and Referees,

This email follows up on the February 13, 2015 email regarding player eligibility and whether an 18 year old player in high school may participate in PVA leagues. At the February 25, 2015 meeting of the PVA Board, the members of the board discussed and voted on this issue. Following a lengthy and wide-ranging discussion, we ultimately voted to make PVA more inclusive and include high school players who are at least 18 years of age.

The historic rule text provided the following eligibility criteria:

Players must be eighteen (18) years of age and not enrolled in high school. Anyone who has graduated at the age of 17 will be allowed to participate.

The rule has been updated to reflect the PVA Board vote as follows:

Players must be at least eighteen (18) years of age.

The PVA website has been updated to reflect this change.

Thank you to those of you who brought this issue to our attention and to those of you who provided comments.
