MARCH 11, 2020 UPDATE:
Practices Cancelled through MARCH
Coaches, players, parents:
This has been a very difficult decision to cancel all practices for the rest of the month of MARCH.
As many of you have heard the news of the virus is now in Thurston County or you have seen the Governor's speech as well as the County Health Officer's order #20-059 that has been signed by health officers in P/K/S counties. As the virus has moved into Thurston County I will be watching the those above counties in their response assuming we are not far behind. It has been mentioned we are not at the peak of this outbreak.
Also many of you have heard the decision of the Puget Sound Region is cancelling all tournaments for the remainder of the month of March. And the Spokane PNQ and the AAU Regional tournament also has been cancelled. I am sure more places will be following in the next few days to weeks.
At this time, practices are categorized as "under 250 person" gatherings. As of 3/11/2020 Thurston County has NOT recommended school closures as of yet.
We are sure these changes and cancellations raise many questions regarding refunds, Hotels, credits or rescheduling.
Many events are getting rescheduled, so it may take a while for us, directors and PSR completely understand how this has effected our season. It could be from a few weeks to several weeks of working with all regions, directors and health department. I will update our members once we have more information as it has been changing daily. Plan for practice to resume in April.
Here are some Resources on the Covid-19 virus.
To reduce your risk of getting any viral respiratory infection:
We are dedicated in providing our athletes with the technical, tactical and physical training to reach their highest possible potential. The program is equally dedicated to the highest possible standards of personal integrity, mutual respect and responsible conduct. We strive to help each player, regardless of age or ability, achieve life-changing growth in physical skills and personal character as they play the game of volleyball.
EJVBC is committed to putting our member families above any other goal. When the directors and staff are faced with deciding, we ask the following question: What is best for our athletes and their families? We are striving to be the NEXT GENERATION VOLLEYBALL CLUB and have a duty to help grow and prepare our athletes to become successful adults.
Appropriate behavior is expected of all players, and parents, whenever they are involved in any activity related to the Evergreen Volleyball Club. The club has a goal to be a respected organization, recognized not only for its competitiveness but also its good sportsmanship. The players and parents of the team are representatives of the Club and are counted on to uphold and reflect the values of the Evergreen Volleyball Club. Respect should always be shown to: Opponents, Teammates, Officials, Coaches, and Parent.
