Dear PVC Families,
We understand that the recent cancellations have been difficult for everyone. Volleyball ties us all together. However, your safety and health is our #1 priority. We will get through this together and look forward to seeing everybody back in the gym in the near future.
For teams whose schedules list Out-of-region tournaments beyond the CEVA regular season and the Willamette Classic (both of which have been cancelled) we are monitoring their status. We will closely monitor and follow the recommendations of the health authorities, government agencies and our sports governing body, USA Volleyball. Individual teams are currently being polled to determine the viability of participating in these out-of-region tournaments. Of course we will only participate if the tournaments are still held as scheduled and our participation follows all public guidelines related to COVID-19.

USA Volleyball Response on COVID-19
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.
Due to the cancellation of the above tournaments, PVC is reviewing player accounts and determining a timeline for issuance of refund checks. More specific details will be forthcoming via PVC's treasurer, Rob Hoover.
"I have two girls that play for PVC. We started at another club, the difference between the two is the level of coaching. The coaches at PVC are consistent in their ways of coaching. The girls learn at a young age the mental and physical game of volleyball. I have seen growth in both of my girls on and off the court. My girls enjoy working with all the coaches at PVC and always look forward to their next club season!"

"We have had a great experience with PVC. This year will be our fourth club season. PVC provides a great competitive environment. Our daughters have accomplished so much with each coach. The dedicated coaches and the skill/techniques they have learned have pushed them forward to succeed. All these things combined have made PVC our favorite club."
