The Orange County Youth Volleyball League is a developmental recreation program for youth ages 9-15-years-old. Volunteer coaches will work with players to improve individual skills with emphasis on the fundamentals, while instilling values in teamwork and sportsmanship. Fee includes team shirt.
COVID Precautions (revised 5/3/21):
COVID safety precautions developed in consultation with Orange County management and the Orange County Health Department will be in place.
All play will be held outside at the field behind the Central Recreation Center. As a result of inclement weather, play may be canceled or rescheduled.
Anyone in attendance – player, coach, and spectator – will be subjected to COVID health and safety screening at check-in.
Masks are recommended but not required for participants and spectators. Masks are still strongly recommended outdoors by NC DHHS in crowded areas and higher risk settings where social distancing is difficult.
Player bench areas will consist of 10 socially-distanced chairs, one for each player. Teams will not switch bench areas between sets.
No post-game handshakes. To maintain social distancing, huddling between points is strongly discouraged.
Spectators should bring their own seating and maintain social distancing from others in attendance.
Newly sanitized balls will be used in each time slot of the night.
Orange County Recreation will follow all recommended NCDHHS and Orange County Health Department procedures related to contact tracing, participant quarantining, and/or pausing of any team or league activities related to exposure or positive Covid-19 test results.
There will be a 15 minute field clearing period between 6:45 p.m.-7:00 p.m. Players, coaches, and spectators ending practice at 6:45 p.m. are asked not to congregate on the field or parking lot following their game or practice. Players, coaches, and spectators should not arrive prior to 7:00 p.m. who are scheduled to begin practices or games at 7:00 p.m.
