The following information has been received from Volleyball Victoria in relation to the 2020 State League season:
As previously advised the 2020 State League season is currently facing considerable uncertainty. With the recent restrictions put in place Volleyball Victoria has determined to postpone the commencement of the State League season until at least the Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday on Monday 8 June.
Please note that we are currently exploring all options including the possibility of a September-December season, however, the season structure is obviously dependent on government advice regarding restrictions on non-essential gatherings.
I will be emailing to all players some suggested Strength and Conditioning exercises you may wish to do to maintain your fitness during this enforced downtime. We will advise as soon as training is able to recommence, but in the meantime, please stay safe & healthy!
Due to the more recent government requirements and further training venue closures, ALL training will be cancelled at this stage until after the school holidays (may be able to recommence in week commencing 14/4 depending on the ever changing conditions). Enjoy the break and please keep an eye on this page, your emails and the website for further updates.
Following advice received from Volleyball Victoria today, all round one matches for State League are being postponed, to be played at a later date. This means that, as it stands currently, the season will commence after Easter on 18th April.
A number of venues have been closed to us this week, so the Club has made the decision to CANCEL ALL TRAINING SESSIONS FOR THIS WEEK. This is erring on the side of caution in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and we will review this and advise of any training details again next week.
Stay safe and well and hope to be back in action soon!
