SVAA is aware of Governor Abbott's Executive Order GA-34 removing his COVID-19 orders mandating certain behaviors in Texas. SVAA has considered Order GA-34, guidance from the CDC and the decision of the Richardson Independent School district and has decided to continue to play by its COVID guidelines, as revised, and as may be required by the various facilities SVAA uses for its sporting activiities.

The Spring Valley Athletic Association continues to monitor the evolving developments surrounding COVID-19, including the guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments. SVAA has now completed two seasons of its sporting events by adopting guidelines for parents, officials, and players to follow.
SVAA plans to follow the same approach for its Spring 2021Sports. You will find the the guidelines SVAA has developed for Football (flag and 7v7), volleyball, and baseball/softball HERE.
While the arrival of vaccines and safe practices have reduced the numbers of infections and deaths from COVID-19, COVID-19 has not left our community and can still be easily spread from person to person. SVAA has designed processes to help reduce the possibility of the spread of the virus, there is not guarantee those processes will be completely effective. Anyone electing to participate must realize that the risk of COVID-19 infection exists. Since the disease may be spread by those without symptoms, the possibility of spread to others is high, certainly when compared to sheltering in place.
SVAA appreciates your patience and understanding during what continues to be an unusual time for all of us.
