Failure to comply in any of the regulations can lead to removal from premises. If we incur enough infractions it can lead to the forfeiture of the league.

VV Rec realizes that this is not a normal set of guidelines for the year, we apologize for any and all inconveniences. However we still feel that this season can be beneficial for our athletes.
