Fall Managers Meeting

Hello Managers,

Our Annual Meeting is coming up soon! It will be held on Wednesday, September 16th at 6:30pm at East Portland Community Center. This is an important meeting where we will vote on updates to the PVA Bylaws, provide a refresher on important PVA-specific rules and policies, and discuss and vote on a proposed rule change for the coed leagues to address the issue of whether a team may play with five players composed of three men and two women. These are important issues, and attendance by a team representative is mandatory. Please send a representative from your team to weigh in and to vote! We will be providing the updated bylaws for your review in advance of the meeting, and will go over the major changes together.

After taking care of PVA business, you are invited to stick around to play or recruit players at the Unaffiliated Players Open Gym. We will have gym space available until 9:00pm.

Thanks, and see you on September 16th!

    Milwaukie High School Parking Update

    Heads up everyone, just in from the Milwaukie High School AD and Pam. We can no longer park at the Catholic church across the street from Milwaukie. If you do, you risk being towed! Please spread the word!!!

    PCC Parking Update

    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. PCC has a couple of drive-through payment stations on the way down from the top entrance. If you go in the top and turn right, heading down to the gym, the payment stations are on your right and you can pay from your car before you park. I always strongly recommend people doing that, as it allows you to get your pass before parking and you don't have to park and then walk to a payment station, hoping the ticket giver doesn't give you a ticket in the meantime. Thanks, PVA Board

    Player Eligibility Decision

    Dear Managers and Referees,

    This email follows up on the February 13, 2015 email regarding player eligibility and whether an 18 year old player in high school may participate in PVA leagues. At the February 25, 2015 meeting of the PVA Board, the members of the board discussed and voted on this issue. Following a lengthy and wide-ranging discussion, we ultimately voted to make PVA more inclusive and include high school players who are at least 18 years of age.

    The historic rule text provided the following eligibility criteria:

    Players must be eighteen (18) years of age and not enrolled in high school. Anyone who has graduated at the age of 17 will be allowed to participate.

    The rule has been updated to reflect the PVA Board vote as follows:

    Players must be at least eighteen (18) years of age.

    The PVA website has been updated to reflect this change.

    Thank you to those of you who brought this issue to our attention and to those of you who provided comments.

    Regards,
    PVA Board
