Practices will be at Longplex in Tiverton RI (and possibly other locations near there)and we will be participating in AAU tournaments and possibly other local tournaments.

"As a 5 year breast cancer survivor, it warmed my heart to see all the girls wear pink with such gusto! They wore pink shirts, shorts, KNEEPADS, headbands, face paint, etc! One of our coach's even bought pink bracelets for all of our players. SURGE promised to donate more money to Susan G Komen if kids wore pink...and boy did our players come through!!" Suzanne Mirisola, President of SURGE Volleyball Club RI
SURGE is donating $250 to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research! Thank you all!!
The health and safety of our youth, staff, and volunteers remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play. We are:
• Intensifying cleaning by disinfecting shared objects and equipment between use, and ensuring safe and correct use and storage of disinfectants.
Anyone who is sick or has been in contact with someone who has COVID-19— including players, family members, coaches, staff and spectators — should not attend practices or games. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.
If someone does get sick during practice or at a game, we have plans in place to isolate and
transport that person to their home or healthcare facility. If you have a specific question about this plan or COVID-19, please contact Stacie MacDonald (401-835-7002) or Suzanne Mirisola for more information. You can also find more information about COVID-19 at www.cdc.gov.
