New LYV High School format

NVVA Volleyball LYV has now expanded the league and added an option for team registration in order to support our players from Loudoun County who won’t be able to compete with their high school this fall. For more than 20 years, Loudoun Youth Volleyball has been providing volleyball opportunities for girls and boys from elementary to high school ages. Our program is one of the main pipelines for the high school program in the county with more than 20,000 athletes participating in our league. Our hi

[07/29/20]   BW VB Families-
📌 A few updates after the most recent VHSL announcement:

1. TRYOUTS are postponed and an update will be sent out once we determine dates.

2. I am checking to see about “if” and “when” we can host open gyms and once I get a response I will share that info.

3. For the Varsity program a decision will be made on August 24th to determine if playoffs will be part of the Spring Season.

4. There is an overlap between sports in the spring so multi sport players need to think about priorities.

5. For those that have been a Briar Woods Falcon and played club ball in the this point you may have to decide on which program you want to be part of next spring. It will be here sooner then you think. You need to ask yourself, “Do I want to represent and be part of Briar Woods High School or my club team?” Lots of things to think about for parents and athletes as the season gets closer. Areas that come to mind are the social scene of playing for high school vs club, finances may play a factor, the coaching aspect, playing time, and so forth.

6. For the Spring season we will adhere to the VHSL and L.Co. Policy concerning attendance.

During these uncertain times one thing is consistent....things change.

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me and will do my best to provide an answer!

Reminders to avoid car pooling if possible and to speed up the process you can print and complete the Self Declaration Form, leave the current temperature blank, the day of conditioning. Upon arrival make sure masks are on and remind your daughter not to exit the car until a coach has come over to take their temperature and collect the form. Check in ends at 6:45.
