Mike Vixie Memorial Service

Mike's memorial service has been set for Friday, June 20 at 11am at St Luke Church at 6835 SW 46th Portland, OR. If you go to this web page you can view photos and share stories of Mike.


Mike Vixie

It is with a heavy heart that we share sad news with our PVA community. Mike Vixie, a PVA player and 18-year PVA board member, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday. He devoted much of his time to PVA, acting as President, Treasurer, Referee, player and team manager over the years for the PVA league. He also worked with the State Games of Oregon and kept the outdoor State Games Summer Tournament going year after year. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends. We welcome anyone who would like to share remembrances of Mike to do so on the PVA Facebook page [https://www.facebook.com/PortlandVolleyballAssociation]. We will share information regarding the memorial service for Mike when details become available, and will send flowers for the service on behalf of the PVA community.


PCC Parking

Dear Managers, Starting May 5, 2014 players will need to purchase a parking pass to park in *any* PCC parking lot. Passes can be purchased at the kiosk located in lot 11. The cost is $2 per pass and the pass is good for two hours ($3 for 3 hours). If you do not have a pass on your dashboard, you may be assessed a $20 ticket. PVA is not responsible for any tickets issued. PVA was not made aware of this change until after spring season had been scheduled and was unable to find an alternate gym in that time. Negotiations with the PCC parking department have led to no success. We are currently looking into other gym options for the fall season. We encourage you to carpool whenever possible to save on the parking fee and apologize for this unforeseen cost. Thanks, PVA Board


Winter 2014 Playoffs/Winners

Rule Change: Under the Net

Here's a new rule change for under the net play that we are adopting:

USAV 11.2.2: “Encroachment into the opponent’s court with any part(s) of the body is permitted, provided some part of the body remains either in contact with or directly above the center line, and there is no interference with opponents. In addition, completely crossing the center line with the foot, feet or hands, or encroachment with other body parts must not present a safety hazard to opponents"


Waivers

Managers: Please have every player on your team fill out and sign a waiver. For individual players, waivers are valid for the year Fall 2013 to Summer 2014. If a new player joins your team, please have the player fill out and return a waiver. New waivers will be required for all players for the Fall 2014 season.


Rosters

Thank you to all the teams that have submitted rosters. Please submit your roster if you have not yet done so.

Rosters are required to be submitted each season.

Rule Change

In order to reduce forfeits, when necessary, teams will be allowed to play with a minimum of 4 players. This will include playoffs. Players will still have to rotate in position and therefore serve in the correct rotation. Server will be the back row player with the other 3 being front row players. For coed teams, the following scenarios are acceptable:
