Due to the ongoing concern related to the Novel Coronavirus 2019, the SCVA has made a decision to suspend the custom of pre- and post-match handshakes between teams effective immediately and until further notice. To ensure the safety of all athletes, coaches, officials, staff and spectators we encourage everyone to take proactive measures such as increasing hand washing and staying home when sick.

The SCVA considers this matter a high priority and will continue monitoring all news and research related to COVID-19 and keep our volleyball community updated.
