Volleyball Club Hou Stand Rotterdam-West

Volleyball for regional competition, leisure, youth and beachvolley.

Corona Update 30-11-21

Due to the new rules regarding Corona, training sessions and/or matches after 17:00 are no longer allowed. In response to this, the NeVoBo has decided to cancel all matches in 2021.

We as association want to let everyone enjoy sports as much as possible, where this can be done safely and within the current rules. That is why we have decided to move all training sessions to Saturday or Sunday at least until Christmas. This was a big puzzle with rental of the hall and trainers (see schedule below), but we hope that in this way we give everyone the opportunity to continue playing volleyball once a week.

Given the high number of corona infections at the moment, and in line with government guidelines, we would like to advise everyone to do a self-test before coming to the training. This way we can all continue to play volleyball safely. In addition, you must be able to show a valid QR code and identification to enter the sports halls.

For questions about the new training schedule or Corona, please contact the board. The training schedule is shown in the News & Events.

Following the Corona press conference of 26-11 j.l. All training sessions for all members have been canceled for at least the next 3 weeks. This concerns training sessions on Tuesday evenings, Thursday evenings and Friday evenings. Furthermore, all competitions will NOT continue until the end of this year for recreational users. For the regulars, this applies to a number of matches. We can probably provide more clarity on this on coming Tuesday evening.

From Tuesday 16-11-2021 it is mandatory to show your QR code (paper or digital) at Hou Stand when entering the sports hall. You will not be admitted without a QR code or with a red cross after scanning. You must also be able to show a valid ID. The QR code and ID will be checked on everyone aged 18 and over. It does not matter whether you are a member of Hou Stand, or a parent/guardian of a youth member. Public (including parents) is no longer allowed. There is an exception for so-called necessary driving parents of playing teams. These parents are allowed to enter without a QR code, and take a seat in the stands, taking into account 1,5 meters away from each other.

Due to this arrangement, teams may have to cancel last minute. Keep an eye on the website for further updates and changes to this arrangement.
