COVID-19 FAQ's

What happens if someone in the club contracts COVID-19?
All participants in the club will need to sign a disclosure form to notify us if they have been exposed or contracted COVID-19. Then, using our activity logs all personnel that were potentially in contact will be notified and asked to self-quarantine for 10 days or receive a negative COVID-19 test prior to returning to play.
Will players need to wear masks while playing? 

Under current guidelines in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties athletes that are fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks while playing. Any athlete or coach that is not vaccinated must wear a mask at all times while inside the facility.

How will you clean the volleyballs?
Each group/team is assigned 12 volleyballs that only they will be allowed to use. At the end of each practice, these balls will be sprayed with a non-toxic sanitizing mist. 

CDC Guidelines  

The CDC outlined their considerations for the return of youth sports in a thorough document here.
