April 15th

Good afternoon, 


The ban on USAV events is now 4/15/20. The LAVA coaches and board of directors are discussing how to go forward with our season. Be assured that we will be refunded for cancelled tournaments and that parents will get a refund for any tournaments we were unable to attend.




Dave Tytler, Director 




Dear Region Leadership,

Please find below the announcement we posted on our website earlier this afternoon. USA Volleyball is announcing the elimination of sanctions for all USA Volleyball activities (including but not limited to events, practices, team activities, individual training sessions or anything covered by USA Volleyball insurance) through April 15, 2020. USA Volleyball is monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates on a regular basis.  USA Volleyball has been asked by local clubs whether such ban applies to club activities covered under the club’s own (non-USA Volleyball) insurance. In these situations, USA Volleyball strongly encourages all member clubs and coaches to adhere to USA Volleyball’s policies. However, should a club decide to voluntarily disregard those policies and assume all risks associated therewith, we recommend that the club adhere to CDC; local, state and federal guidelines and recommendations when deciding whether or not to host practices or individual training sessions. If a club does host practice or individual training sessions, those activities would be considered a non-sanctioned activity by USA Volleyball and thus NOT covered by USA Volleyball insurance.The health and welfare of our membership, volleyball families and fellow citizens is our primary concern in all decisions we are making during these uncharted times.


As a reminder USA Volleyball has a page on its website solely devoted to COVID-19 which is updated with the latest information at
