– Per NYS guidance all players must wear a face covering unless participation in an activity that prevents this (only people playing within the court area will not be required to wear mask as the heat and sand will interfere with their play and breathing, however any player that chooses to wear a mask can do so). All players entering, leaving or using any part of the facility (restaurant/bathrooms) will be required to use a face mask. We hope the mask mandate for outdoors will be lifted soon by NYS but in the meantime they are still required.
-Players at Cedar Beach will now enter through the beach access road. LIVA staff will direct players from the parking area.
-Team captains (or team representative in case of absence of captain) will be required to check in each night before 4pm via their phone through LIVA online service application before the start of each night’s play. We will send link to app before the season begins.
-Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout each facility and players are encouraged to use them before, in between and after games.
-Team court assignments will be listed for each day online allowing for teams to will go directly to their courts for each night of play rather than checking in. Court numbers and court assignments for each night will also be placed in well-spaced area on boards throughout the court area as a backup.
-No gatherings will be allowed within the parking lot area (tailgating) and around any part the facilities.
-Two spectators per player will be allowed at Jones Beach and Robert Moses. No spectators(Add children are allowed) will be allowed at Cedar Beach, however 2 spectators per player will be allowed for LIVA’s Friday night Juniors league at Cedar Beach.
-Each team captain will be responsible getting hand sanitizing wipes and wiping down the volleyball before each game.
-No fist bumping, no high fives, etc.
-Each winning team captain on each court will now input scores via phone online vs handing in scorecard. Information on doing this will be sent out before games begin.
