**Please Note: While we are excited about offering our Winter Volleyball league, it is possible that new changes in CDC Recommendations, Government Executive Orders, and/or Local Government guidelines, can affect the status of this league if any new updates are made available. Should we have to postpone or make any changes to the rules of our league all participants' parents will be notified. Should we have to cancel our league, all participants' parents will be contacted and refunds or credits will be distributed.


**Please Note:  The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) has released an update for volleyball regarding face coverings. We have learned that the City of Lincolnton’s Volleyball program will act along with the NCHSAA’s most recent order which is requiring volleyball players to wear face masks during volleyball practices and contests.  A player with a medical condition that would prohibit wearing a face mask during competition, will need medical documentation from a physician licensed to practice medicine, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. This requirement could be lifted by the time our league begins, but please be aware that the league could be played with this requirement. Thank you!

League Schedule


Evaluation Dates | 12/1/2020 or 12/5/2020 (times TBA)

*Evaluations are requires for players who have not evaluated with us previously or did not play with us in the 2020 Winter season. More information below. 


After evaluations are finished, coaches will meet with the Volleyball Program Coordinator on December 7th or December 8th to discuss rules for the league, league modifications, as well as team divisions. Once teams are divided and contacts are given to coaches, coaches will begin contacting parents to inform them of their practice schedules. Practices will begin the week of December 14th. Each team will only have 1 practice a week for the entire season.  Games will begin January 16th. There will not be a tournament at the end of the season. The season will finish no later than February 25th.  



Evaluations


Mandatory evaluations will be held if the participant did not play with the City of Lincolnton Parks & Recreation Department during the Winter 2020 season. Evaluation time will be scheduled by the league coordinator for each participant needing to evaluate. Players will only need to attend one of the evaluation days. Evaluations will be held at the Lentz Recreation Center Gym  at Betty G Ross Park (800 Madison St, Lincolnton, NC 28092).  



Volunteer Coaching


Volunteer coaches are needed in this league. Their duties will be to lead their team during practice and games to better understand the game of volleyball, encourage teamwork and team building, and to handle the safety measures required of them (as mentioned above).  Volunteer coaches have to complete a coaching application that includes coach conduct material as well as information for a background check that is completed by the City of Lincolnton Human Resources Department.
