MVSA Announces Our First Summer Grass Program for MVSA Club Players!
MVSA will host weekly, grass doubles volleyball over the summer for girls, ages 14 through 18 as of 9/1/20 (U13-U17 for the past club season), and with a current MVSA club affiliation. This is intended to be an informal and relaxed departure from the rigors of your indoor Club/HS schedule. Please see our Summer Grass info sheet for more details.
UPDATE (6/12/20) - The State and Montgomery County have indicated that they will allow activities such as our Summer Grass Program sooner than expected. As a result, we now plan to have the first evening of play on June 23rd.
UPDATE (6/9/20) - MVSA still intends to host the weekly Summer Grass Program when conditions allow us to do so responsibly. County and State regulations still prohibit gatherings larger than 10 people and we don't expect the restrictions to be lifted until June 30th at best. If so, we hope to begin the program July 7th.
