NEW SEASON UPDATE
Guidelines from the State of Ohio were published under Responsible RestartOhio (link to document below) and, along with COVID-19 Rule and Protocol Modifications published by the OHSAA will be followed for the upcoming season.
Any requirements that are published or updated from the Governor of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Health will be followed throughout the season. There may be local county Board of Health additional requirements to follow as well as individual school and school district guidelines.
Beyond the Responsible RestartOhio guidelines listed for all sports, we will abide by safety-based decisions that may change during the season. It is in everyone's interest that boys' high school volleyball be played in as safe an environment as possible, with consideration for student-athletes, coaches, support staff, officials and spectators.
Schools may choose to configure their gyms in whatever way they see fit to best promote safety and the well-being of everyone. Number of spectators will be limited, and bleachers will be spaced out for spectators. Schools will determine how often they are able to sanitize volleyballs using the guidance provided by the OHSAA (click on link below). Wilson-Ball-Cleaning-Regulations-2021
Facilities across the state differ. Again, these decisions are to be made at the local level and not determined by the OHSAA. We want to continue to help with guidance where needed. This page will be updated with key information as clarifications become known.
