2020-2021 Opportunities to Compete & Learn

•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:
https://www.mass.gov/doc/safety-standards-for-youth-and-adult-amateur-sports-activities-phase-iii-step-1/download
USAV guidelines may be found here:
https://www.teamusa.org/usa-volleyball/features/usa-volleyball-response-on-coronavirus
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 FALL HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE STARTS TUESDAY OCTOBER 6TH!

Attention Players: Players need to arrive before 5:00pm at Starland Sports Complex. Be sure to have your $425 check for the league fee for check-in. Players  need to have their own filled water bottles and masks at all times. Check your email and below for further details on league setup, mask protocol and more. Let's have fun and play hard through 2020 Fall MGA High School League!

MGA VBC and Starland, in Hanover MA, are launching the first ever High School Indoor Volleyball League: a 7 week league with skill training.  League starts on Tuesday October 6th.    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.  

•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.

Private Coaching Sessions Available

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.
