Knowing that eliminating all risk is impossible, Shakopee Volleyball Association (SVA) is committed to providing an environment that is as safe and healthy as reasonably possible for all coaches, athletes, and families. To that end, we have developed Safety Procedures and Preparedness Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continually monitor the COVID-19 pandemic; and as it evolves the below policies and procedures will be modified. Any changes to the policies and procedures will be sent in writing to all coaches and families.
By continuing with the SVA all adults and parents/guardians of minors assume ALL risks associated with participation including but not limited to exposure to COVID-19. Exposure to COVID-19 can lead to temporary or permanent health consequences and death.
Board members, coaches, athletes, and families are all responsible for implementing and complying with all aspects of the policies and procedures in this plan. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 in our facility, and that requires full cooperation. The SVA’s Board of Directors and coaches are charged with enforcing the policies and this plan during their scheduled training times, with SVA’s directors responsible for further disciplinary actions. All coaches, athletes and parent/guardians will be required to sign the “Assumption of Risk and Liability Waiver” (attached at the bottom of this page) as assumption of risk, waiver of liability, understanding of an agreement to comply with all aspects of the below Safety Procedures and Preparedness Plan. Any violations by athletes can result in expulsion from the SVA with no refunds given. Any violations by coaches can result in termination.
SVA’s directors, or an appointed staff member, will always be on site to ensure compliance.

Thank you - SVA Board
