Dear colleagues and friends,
now that we have had clarity as to what the Governor's office is allowing to happen for the HS volleyball season we want to make sure that our young athletes have the possibility to play, practice and compete within a safe and responsible environment up to March 1st when their HS season starts.
Since the rules from the Governor's office clearly state that no event with more than 50 people inside a building can take place we cannot have the Spikes Colorado Series of tournaments this season and all other privately organized tournaments including Crossroads under the actual guidelines cannot take place, however we have replaced it with the next best thing considering the situation we all find ourselves in.
Spikes Colorado Series for this season is launching the "COVID LEAGUE" (I know but we do need to stay positive don't we) in replacement to the tournaments which cannot be organized under the Governor's office rules without breaking those rules and deliberately putting everyone's health at risk.
Here are the FULL details including calendar/schedule:
- 4 Divisions (U13's/U14's Opal Div, U15's/U16's Emerald Div, U16's/U17's Sapphire Div and U17's/18's Diamond Div).
- Playing Saturdays only , 3 sets to 25 as per calendar/schedule above at our facility inside Word of Life, 8700 Park Meadows dr. Lone Tree, CO 80124. (free parking)

- Fees are insured and refunded on a prorated basis less $25 fee should the league be cancelled at any time and Spikes Colorado Series is unable to continue providing this service due to new Covid developments).
