July 2020 GVCO Newsletter

GVCO continues to focus on the health and safety of those in our community. As we work to bring GVCO programming to the community, we have spent a good deal of time with Covid-19 protocols and procedures.

We are following guidance for recreational and youth sports from the CDC, state and local governments, as well as our school district, in modifying policies and protocols to facilitate a healthy and comfortable experience for participants and staff to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus. Individual programs will have specific policies related to their programs posted on websites and included in program information.

As always, we rely on everyone’s cooperation in keeping the entire community safe and need your help in assessing your or your child’s risks and staying home when appropriate.

GVBL Summer League Basketball
The GVBL Summer Basketball League found a new home this summer thanks to GVCO's longtime community partner, The Desmond Great Valley. The Desmond's leadership generously offered their beautiful outdoor court, and many of the communities' families are now enjoying another great summer of basketball.

Please see this quick Note from Mike Chain and The Desmond. Thanks again to The Desmond for supporting GVCO and our wonderful Great Valley community.

We are happy to offer Boys and Girls 3rd/4th and 5th/6th Summer League divisions. GVBL implemented new COVID-19 policies and procedures that includes a daily screening questionnaire as well as social distancing, disinfecting and masking procedures. With your help, GVBL has been able to provide a safe and fun experience for all.

GVFL Fall Season Update: Unfortunately, due to the majority of programs in our league relying on school or shared public facilities that ultimately were not able to pull off the necessary protocols to insure we were able to play this fall, the Inter County Football League has canceled the 2020 season.

Stay tuned for flag football program information on the GVCO fields!
