Weather Policies

The sessions will run in all weather conditions unless there is lightning or severe rain making it unsafe to play. Always show up to games even if it is raining as the weather can change very quickly. Assume all games are a go unless otherwise stated through email or on the VA website. 

You can check if a league night will be canceled by looking on the Volleyball Alberta Website: (both the ticker on the front page and your specific beach page), VA twitter account, or by email.

Lightning Policy

We will be following the 30/20 Rule during game play which was set out by the Canada Safety Council.

If thunder is heard within 30 seconds of seeing lightning, games will be postponed. All participants must leave the playing area and seek shelter in a building or an automobile. Never stand under trees, in an open field, or under an umbrella. Games will resume 20 minutes after the thunder and lightning have moved away. If thunder and lightning are still present 20 minutes after, the game will be cancelled and the score counts as it was when the game was stopped. Halfway point of the game must be reached (11 points by one team) for the game to count towards the league standing.
