This document has been produced by the London Volleyball Association in response to COVID-19. We advise that the measures below be put in place to mitigate potential risks to players, coaches, officials, event organisers, volunteers and spectators. 

This document will be reviewed monthly and will be updated as regularly as is required. The document will be distributed to clubs and teams each time it is updated. 

  1. Participants should take a lateral flow test immediately (or as close as possible) before traveling to a competition or training session – and should not travel but isolate if the result is positive. 
  2. Teams not to change ends unless one end provides a significant advantage to a team. The 1st referee has the responsibility to determine this. 
  3. Referees can use whatever whistles they wish to use.
