New! Facebook: The MVA has a new Group for MVA members only. Go to the MVA page and request to be added. If you are an MVA member or play R4's tournaments or leagues you qualify to be added. The page has event postings for every tournament and will allow MVA players/teams to comment if they want to play, if they are looking for players or to see what teams are playing. What teams are in and space left in the tournament may be posted, too. Starting in 2012, the MVA will use it more to post tournament results/pictures quicker. Please do not post other tournaments or leagues without emailing firstname.lastname@example.org first. Tournament or event listings will be limited to MVA events, non conflicting volleyball events or benefits.
Player/Team Match: If you are not on Facebook or are not getting responses via Facebook, a player looking for a team for any event, tournament or league, may email email@example.com with your name/contact/division(s)/position(s) along with the event date. Please send a separate email for each event. If you are a team seeking a player you may email firstname.lastname@example.org with your team name, division level and position you need filled and available player information will be sent to you.
