Borderline COVID rules

Our first skills sessions will be held tonight, Tuesday. We will have two serving sessions at Phillips Hall. Tomorrow night, Wednesday, we will have setting at both sessions. Both will be on setting. We have plenty of space for more to sign up.

As you may have already noticed, it is not that easy getting into the building!! The big surface lot off Campus Avenue is closed due to construction. You should be able to enter from Oak Street or in the parking lot by the Veteran's Memorial which is accessible from Spring Street.

From the front of Phillips off of Oak Street: We will have the middle set of doors open for you. Once in the building, go right, then left down the hall by the dance studio. Continue until you can't go any further. Go down the stairs and the entrance to the gym should be to your left.

From Spring St. there is a lot north of the building. You go past Hannah House (Don't go to Campus Avenue) and the Veterans Memorial will be on your left. Go past the memorial and turn left. That parking lot will dead end and the entrance we usually use is straight ahead.

Parents are welcome to accompany their athlete to the gym. You may remain in the building if you maintain social distancing. Please stay in the area around the gym.
We now have the Ohio Valley Region Girls' Championships dates and divisions. Our teams have always participated in this event. We plan on going back this season, barring any complications. Our teams should play in the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Many families stay in downtown hotels the night before. The link is at https://www.ovr.org/hotels/index.php.
If you plan to get hotels, please look into it ASAP. They will fill fast.

OVR Championship Tournaments
We are working on a plan for the full resumption of operations for 2021. We are conducting practices as teams are able. Remember that the Youth teams (10s, 11s, and 12s) will start practicing in January. We have athletes and coaches that are under quarantine. We have athletes, coaches and administrators that have tested positive. Please stay home if you have any symptoms of the virus!

There is much uncertainty regarding how things will develop. We hope to have a full season of practices and tournaments for 14 teams. In the meantime, we will do our best to offer our families the opportunity to practice and scrimmage. If we can participate in tournaments with the restrictions we might face, we will enter them.

We do not know how tournaments might be conducted. There may be limits on the number of spectators (or none). There may not be concessions. Major convention center events may be very restricted or cancelled.

We will be in touch as more information becomes available.
All athletes must complete their uniform sizing with the following link:
