CLUB EXTREmE VOLLEYBALL
To our families, Coaches & fellow clubs,
With the Recreation Center still closed and the staff on furlough due to the govenor's stay at home mandate, refunds and reimbursements will be delayed until the center reopens. Please remember the season began in late October with Tryouts and open gyms. We had uniforms, equipment, gym time and tournaments at a minimum that have been expensed to date. Should you have outstanding club fees, please submit at your earliest convenience or make arrangements. Contact the club Director or your coach with your intent. We are waiting refunds from the tournaments that have been cancelled as well.
please stay healthy and safe!!
our players and families
Life is a team sport, and now more than ever, we all need to be good teammates to one another. Our most meaningful achievements are defined by how well we succeed with others. It’s up to us to use the skills learned on the playing field to work together as a team, especially now!
While sports are currently on hiatus, it is important for us to be intentional about the ways in which we all work together to build the character that fulfills potential and develops leaders — across the globe, across the country and in every way we can. Spectator, parent, coach, and athlete, everyone has a role to play.
be strong-supportive-helpful-caring-work together as you can!
We will get through this as a team!

Monday, March 23rd, 2020 Received this email from the OVR:
Thursday March 19, 2020 USA Volleyball communicated the following to Ohio Valley Region Administration; the announcement can be seen in its entirety on the OVR website.
“USA Volleyball (USAV) is announcing the elimination of sanctions for all USAV activities (including but not limited to events, practices, team activities, individual training sessions or anything covered by USAV insurance) through April 15, 2020. USAV is monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates on a regular basis.”
The updates/positions of USAV are subject to change very rapidly. Changes have occurred five times in the past 10 days from the initial ban on activity being March 15, to the latest ban now being April 15. As you can see, the health crisis and the governmental restrictions are forcing updates daily, sometimes hourly! Decisions are being made every day that impact the ability of the OVR to provide the necessary services to our members. We all must address the health crisis as a priority; the safety and well-being of our “volleyball family” is our primary concern!
It is with the best interests of our members in mind that the OVR Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all OVR-USAV SANCTIONED ACTIVITY (including but not limited to events, practices, in-person team activities or individual training sessions, or anything covered by USAV insurance) for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season or until a time during this season that USA Volleyball lifts the ban on sanctions and declarations of state emergencies have been rescinded.. There has been much discussion over the past two weeks; all members of the Board have been participating and have played an active role in our decisions. Many factors were considered; the protection and well-being of our members and the economic impact on parents and families have been primary concerns. The operational stability of our c lubs is vital; discussions are on-going on how the OVR can provide assistance.
To clarify this announcement, ALL OVR-USAV memberships will remain intact through the end of the of the current USAV membership season. Any OVR club or team wishing to participate in a USAV endorsed activity is eligible to do so. This announcement impacts only those events endorsed by the OVR through August 31, 2020. At this time, ALL USAV Championship events are scheduled to proceed as planned. I want to remain optimistic; however, the future of the 2020 USAV Championships is out of their control. The OVR will actively support the programs and decisions of USA Volleyball during these trying times.
If by some miracle, something we are all praying for, circumstances permit us to get athletes back on the court, the OVR will be ready to reinstate/promote that effort. We must not allow our love of the game or our emotions to interfere with proper, common sense decisions. WHEN permitted, the OVR will do everything possible to create a “back to normal environment” for all our athletes!
There will be many questions; our staff will be making every effort to address your concerns.
At this time the OVR will be returning ALL OVR Girls Junior Championship tournament entry fees, in their entirety, to the club directors. I strongly encourage other tournament directors to do the same, as soon as possible. OVR clubs have demonstrated their character by providing the best in instruction, playing opportunities and facilities; continue working closely with your clubs to promote that relationship. All of us are holding onto hope; the goal of the OVR is to create a FUTURE all of us can believe in!
Please continue to access the OVR website for the latest updates from the OVR and USAV.
Stay safe and look out for each other; I want to see all of you on the court very soon!

City of Massillon Parks & Recreation
The following information has been prepared after consulting with the City of Massillon Recreation Board, Mayor, Safety Service Director and the Massillon City Health Department:
Due to concerns regarding COVID-19 in conjunction with Governor Dewine’s Executive Order regarding mass gatherings of over 100 people, all activities at the Massillon Recreation Center will be suspended at 8:00PM on Friday, March 13, 2020 until Monday, April 6, 2020. The Rec Center will remain closed during this time. This will include all room rentals, fitness classes, aquatics activities, gym activities and fitness room use. However, the Rec Center will be staffed from 8:30AM-4:30PM to answer phone calls only. Furthermore, the Massillon Senior Center will be closed, and all activities will be suspended but will also be staffed from 8:00AM-4:00PM to receive phone calls only.
Recreation Center memberships will be extended to compensate for this closure. Refunds will be given for all classes, rentals, and events that have been reserved and paid for and scheduled during the closure. Breakfast with the Easter Bunny and all Easter Egg Hunt events are cancelled and refunds will be issued. All information, and updates, regarding this will be posted on the Parks & Recreation and City of Massillon websites. As well as the City of Massillon Parks & Recreation Facebook page.
In this trying time, we are encouraged to follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and the Massillon City Health Department regarding social distancing and health precautions to determine how to proceed with mass gatherings.
City of Massillon Parks & Recreation Director
OHIO VALLEY REGION
From OVR Commissioner Bob Price: On Thursday, March 12th,
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has issued a state of emergency. The order has restricted mass gatherings to fewer than 100 people with emphasis on the importance of “social distancing.” He has mandated all K-12 public schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th, 2020, for a period of 3 weeks; there may be more restrictive policies implemented in the coming days. USAV has issued a position statement, and a link to that information is posted on the OVR website. The RECOMMENDATION from USAV on cancellation of events extends to March 22nd, 2020. Please refer to the USAV website for updates from the National office. I want to encourage all parents, coaches, and club directors to check the OVR website on a regular basis for updates. With the safety and well-being of our members in mind, the OVR will be suspending/cancelling all OVR-run events and tournaments (such as upcoming Bid Play-ins and the 18s Bid Qualifier this month), until further notice. To clarify this statement – the OVR cannot legally cancel an event that the OVR does not own/manage. That decision is at the discretion of the local tournament host, who must also abide by any orders or mandates from local or state authorities. I want to strongly encourage all tournament directors to use their best judgement and cancel their events. I cannot emphasize enough how critical the problem is. The OVR wants to be part of the solution that supports the effort to combat this medical emergency. The most frequently asked question: Can the clubs or teams practice? Answer: That is a parent-club-team decision. My response to practices: Are they necessary? Is it defeating the purpose of social distancing? Bob Price Commissioner of the Ohio Valley Region firstname.lastname@example.org
Bob Price has been in communication with the Ohio Department of Health -
Their ruling on “large gatherings” is 100 people or more. This includes all participants, coaches, officials, media and ALL spectators. Any “large gathering” is to be canceled per the Governor’s executive order.
The Center for Disease Control/CDC website provides comprehensive information:
USA Volleyball has a webpage dedicated to the subject as it relates to our sport:
