•Club Volleyball this year will be different than in the past: between Sept- Dec 2020, we will offer opportunities for teams to practice and learn and compete inter and intra-club rather than any larger format tournaments. In January provided things have changed, we will be able to offer NERVA, USAV and AAU tournaments where possible
•Due to Covid 19 we will not be using the Metrowest locations Sept-Dec as all schools/colleges are not allowing for any use of their facilities. During this time, all events, camps, clinics, tryouts, and practices will be out of Starland in Hanover, MA.
*Fees will be on a monthly basis rather than a season fee and as we add tournaments, fees will change.

Current COVID Status/Regs for Volleyball-Updated Aug 2020
COVID 19 Regulations & Expectations: we will adhere to all MA safety regulations and recommendations for moderate-risk
sports that apply: physical distancing, masks and sanitization of equipment. Our primary goal is to teach the players and
protect them within our control. It is also very important that each player and family discuss and implement their own
requirements for on and off court safety. MA guidelines may be found here:
USAV guidelines may be found here:
Our policy is: if anyone tests positive for Covid or is in contact with someone, who has tested positive, they should advise
MGA and will be asked to get tested and not join practice until test results. At that point, all should follow the
most-up-to-date MA guidelines for next steps. Any player or family, who does not abide by our/state guidelines may not be allowed to participate in activities.
MGA VBC and Starland, in Hanover MA, will be launching the first ever High School Indoor Volleyball League: a 7 week league with skill training. League to start on Monday October 5th. We will host 30 minute games in a two hour session, two nights a week and a 3 hour skill development session on Sunday afternoons. We believe that this offer to play and practice for approximately 49 hours for the league or 7 hours per week is a steal at $425 per player with a minimum of 8 players per team and a maximum of 12 players per team. Each school will be allowed to have up to two teams. See Sign Up Information Below and Rally Your Team!
•Teams participate on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm - three teams on one court. We will have 4 total courts with three teams on each court. one team will officiate while two teams play each other. There will be social distancing and all players will be wearing masks.
•We will use hand held squeeze whistles and all whistles will be disinfected after every match.
•We will adhere to USAV Volleyball rules and teams will be allowed to play with no less than 4 players and the ghost rule will apply to those teams with less than 6 players on any given day.
•We will account for wins, losses, head to head matchups and point differential on a weekly basis and teams will play all schools attending by the end of the league.
•There will be a championship day on the seventh week to determine a League Champion.
•On Sundays, all players will be sent to one of 8 courts for skill development.
Teams need to have 8 players minimum to be confirmed as registered; they may have as many as 12 but after that an additional team must be created
Players will each sign up individually and designate your High School team on the form. After signup ends and we have determined you have met the minimum of (8) of your HS team members, you will be charged the $425 player fee and then your team will be formed. If your high school team does not have enough players you will not be charged and will not be able to participate so be sure to rally your teammates to get signed up!
Registration opens Friday August 28th and is limited to (12 ) High School teams.
Starting on Monday, June 8th we will be offering private, 1 hour, lessons at Starland Sports-Plex. Individual or small group lessons will be offered. $125 per hour for a one on one, or up to three players. 4 players or more will pay $40 per player.
