Covid-19 League info

2020 Max Volley Summer League 2's, 3's and 4's


Covid-19 update, June 15th

Practice/exhibition games will begin the week of June 21st and go for 2 weeks.  The results from these games will not count. When the regular season starts we will reset the schedule. We will not be running a ranking tournament for new teams this year, new teams in the Shefford doubles leagues will play in separate tiers for the first 2 weeks to be ranked appropriately and then we will merge teams into the main leagues.  More info will be emailed to players.


The registration deadline is June 18th.


We will be extending the league to September 25th (on a voluntary basis), and have reduced the registration fees.  Credits will be given to teams who have paid in advance online.


Covid-19 safety measures:


- if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, stay home!

- hand washing stations will be available around courts, players will be asked to wash hands before playing or use your own hand sanitizer.

- players can see the schedule online and go directly to their courts without needing to approach the main tables 

- we are treating every courts as it's own "bubble".  Please only play on one court and leave once the games are done.

- depending on registrations, we may have more tiers of 2 teams to minimize the number of teams per court

- no spectators (except from same family ex:children of players), players sitting around courts can be separated by 2m 

- no hand-shakes between teams.

- we will not use scoreboards

- results will be recorded electronically  (no score-sheets)

- lost and found items will not be kept, they will be left where they are and thrown away after a few days.

Rule changes:

- you can switch sides every 7 points, stay 2m apart from players

- the ball is out of play on the side-lines if it passes the post (do not go running near another court to get the ball)


Covid-19 update, June 8th

Due to Covid-19, we will delay the start of the leagues until the week of June 21st if restrictions are eased by then. We will delay week by week until we can begin. We will not be doing a ranking tournament for new teams this year, new teams in the Shefford doubles leagues will play in separate tiers for the first 2 weeks to be ranked appropriately and then we will merge teams into the main leagues.


The new registration deadline is June 18th.


Due to this delay we will be extending the league into September (on a voluntary basis), modifying playoffs, and have reduced the registration fees.  Credits will be given to teams who have already paid.


Covid-19 safety measures for league play:


 Any combination of these will be used depending on provincial and city requirements:


- if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, stay home!

- hand washing stations will be available around courts, players will be asked to wash hands before playing

- players can see the schedule online and go directly to their courts without needing to approach the main tables 

- depending on registrations, we may have more tiers of 2 teams to minimize the number of teams per court

- no spectators, players sitting around courts can be separated by 2m 

- no hand-shakes between teams.

- there will be a limited use of scoreboards

- results will be recorded electronically  (no score-sheets)

Possible temporary rule changes:

- all hits will be done behind the 3m line 


Covid-19 update, May 12

Due to Covid-19, we will delay the start of the leagues until the 1st week of June if restrictions are eased by then.  The ranking tournament for new teams will be on Saturday May 30th. League games will start the week of May 31st on your respective night.  This would give us 13 weeks of play plus 1 week of playoffs ending September 4th before Labour Day long weekend, which is a full season but we have little room for cancellations. (this year our schedule is intended to play at least 12 weeks in a 14 week period, plus playoffs. Last year it was 11 weeks in a 13 week period) This summer happens to have more available weeks the way the calendar falls.  


The new registration deadline will be May 27th.


If we must delay the league further or cancel nights to due weather, several options will be available including: extending the league into September (on a voluntary basis), modifying playoffs, modifying the schedule to have more games per night, credits/refunds.
