Governor Evers of Wisconsin issued a Safer at Home Order on March 24 (Emergency Order #12). In support of this, the Spring 2020 season of the Wisconsin Independent Volleyball League has been cancelled.
The order keeps all public and private schools closed and prohibits "all public and private gatherings of any number of people that are not part of a single household or living unit." There is nothing more important to us that the health and safety of the players, parents, fans and coaches. Thank you for your support and we look forward to season!
We will organize meets on
eight consecutive Saturdays:
April 4, April 11, April 18, April 25
May 2, May 9, and May 16, 2020
The Enrollment Form to participate in the Spring 2020 season of the WIVL must be submitted by
February 28, 2020
For the Spring 2020 season, teams will be charged $26 per match to play and the host will receive a hosting credit of $15 per team per match.
On the enrollment form, you can opt to have your team play three, four, five or more matches per day.
If you choose to play three matches, your matches will likely be scheduled in three consecutive time slots, or usually over no more than four time slots, so that your team is making only a half-day commitment. However, please note Section B-4 of the League Rules: we cannot consistently guarantee a specific team that their matches each Saturday will all be in the morning or all in the afternoon
If you choose to play four matches a day, these will likely be scheduled over five to six time slots, with some back-to-back matches and some one time-slot breaks between matches.
If you choose to play five matches a day, in most cases you’re looking at a full day commitment (e.g., 8:00 a.m., 8:30 a.m. or 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m.), with five matches over a six, seven or eight time-slot day. The length of your day, however, will depend on how many courts are being used by the host team that day, how many other teams are in attendance and how many other grades are being hosted on that day by the host team.
If your team wants to play more than five matches per day, you aren’t likely to have any longer day than those teams playing five matches, but you will play more back-to-back matches.
See Paragraph B-3 of the League Rules for an example of how flexible scheduling works with thirteen teams playing on three surfaces, where five teams play three matches each, three teams play four matches each, four teams play five matches each and one team plays seven matches.
When hosting, a community needs a minimum of two playing surfaces for a full day for one grade (first match starting between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m., last match starting sometime between 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., depending on attendance at that meet). A community can also host a meet for one grade on three playing surfaces on the same Saturday. If a host has three, four or more playing surfaces, it can host meets for multiple grades on the same date.
