Dear Express Families,
We hope this message finds you well.
Unfortunately, the OVA has just announced (June 17) that the indoor season will be postponed until Jan. 2021.
While we are disappointed, your Express Team will find ways to keep volleyball going until then.
Click Here for more information.
As always, be well!
Express Board of Directors.
OVA Return to Play
The Ontario Volleyball Association is providing a great deal of detail regarding the return to play effort this year. Most regions across Ontario have moved to Phase 2 (OVA pdf document), and the OVA is working to develop its guidelines for Phase 3. Our region will be moving to Phase 3, however, the suggested OVA guidelines have not yet been approved, we do not know what our local school boards will allow regarding our permit requests, and we rely on schools for our court space. We will provide updates to these items as soon as we know more.
Other components that will be required for athletes and coaches at any level of participation will be required to complete and sign the OVA provided, "OVA_COVID_Waiver" document. If they do NOT complete the waiver, we will not allow the athlete or coach to participate in any Express VC activities. This will be automatically part of all registration activities on the ExpressVC.ca website.
Until further notice, anyone planning on participating in any activities MUST complete the online Activity Health Screening Questionnaire prior to attending the event each day. This includes our R2P programs, tryouts, etc. If the athlete does not, we will not allow the athlete to participate. It is a simple online form, please have your athletes complete it within one(1) hour prior to the session they will be participating in. The questionnaire is also located on the front page of Expressvc.ca
