We are still facing great uncertainties as it relates to our volleyball season, however, we remain hopeful that the season resumes. With things happening so fast we ask for your patience as we do our best to communicate in a timely manner.

We have cancelled all club sanctioned activities, including team practices and team social gatherings, through March 31st. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation and determine what day we will be able to resume our team practices.

McGaugh has been closed by the city indefinitely.

We want to encourage our players to stay active and plan for their season to continue in a few weeks. Please have your player touch their volleyball three to four times a week, jump rope, do dynamic stretches, etc. Have them keep practicing the skills they have learned this year on their own or with a parent or sibling.
Our SBVBC community needs to be vigilant about the guidelines we have been given to help stop this virus from growing.
Most of all care for each other and support one another in anyway.
Board of Directors
