ST7 Now Using A New 2 Step Sanitizing Process to Protect our Volleyballs 6/11/20
In our continued effort to protect our athletes, coaches, and families against COVID-19 in any way that we can, ST7 has begun using a two step process that will keep our volleyballs germ free for 90 days.
All of our volleyballs have now been disinfected with SmartTouch, a hospital grade disinfectant which kills 99.999% of bacteria in less than 60 seconds.
We then treated each volleyball with Bioprotect RTU, a water based antimicrobial surface protectant which remains active on applied surfaces for 90 days.
You will no longer see our coaches sanitizing volleyballs in between lessons, etc. as this will keep them protected for the next 90 days.
We will continue to retreat our volleyballs every 90 days throughout the year.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our website accordingly.

ST7 Summer Cup Update 5/5/20 8:21pm
We wanted to reach out to each of you today regarding the ST7 Summer Cup. It was our hope to be able to continue to host our annual ST7 Summer Cup tournament as scheduled on June 6, but under the current health guidelines and state restrictions, there are simply too many unknowns for us to feel we can safely and securely host this for you, your athletes, coaches, and spectators. We are officially cancelling this tournament for this year but plan to host it again next season. We appreciate your consistent support of ST7 tournaments and hope to host your club again in the future. Wishing you all health and prosperity in the future.
ST7 Volleyball Club Team Practice Update 5/4/20
Good afternoon, ST7 family!
We hope that this email finds you all strong, safe, and healthy! We wanted to reach out today to update you as to where things stand with the season as of today. ST7 is sanctioned through USAV and AAU. In the last update from USAV, they released an extension of restrictions through Friday, May 8th. At this time, they have not given another update to this timeline. There is a scheduled conference call with the region this Thursday, 5.7.20; where we hope to get further updates.
Under the current state restrictions, phase one did not include the opening of gyms or team athletics and there has not been a date or details given yet for the next two phases to begin. Although as of our last update, we planned to return to practice on Tuesday, May 12th, with all of the uncertainties we can not release a new planned date of return at this time.
The safety and well being of our athletes, families, and coaches remains our top priority. It is our hope that through this week, there will be more clarity given by USAV, AAU, the State of Florida, and health officials that will help us to make the best decisions for this season. We ask for your prayers as we work to make the best decisions through this very uncertain and difficult times. Thanks so much for your continued support. We hope you all have a great week.

We will officially cancel this tournament for this year. We will be issuing refunds to the credit card used in registration. We appreciate your continued support of ST7 Volleyball tournaments and hope to host your club again in the future. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you!

Good morning, ST7 family! We miss seeing, coaching, and playing with each and every one of you.
We wanted to reach out this morning with the latest update from USAV. USAV has extended it's restrictions through May 8th. They have also assured us that they are going to do everything in their power to keep our athletes and family's safety and health as their first priority.
While we were disheartened to hear that we can't go back on the 5th, we are happy to hear that it is only one week from that. At this time and based on these new dates, we will plan to return to practice on Tuesday, May 12th.
We continue to pray for you and your families. Stay safe and healthy!

ST7 Club Team Practice Update 3.31 .20 7:29pm
Good evening, ST7 Volleyball family. We hope this message finds all of you well and healthy. We wanted to reach out to you tonight with our latest updates.
We received notice today from USA Volleyball that they are extending the shut down of all volleyball activities through April 30, 2020. Therefore, ST7 will not be able to return to practice, private lessons, clinics, or tournament play until this time. It is our hope to return to practice on Tuesday, May 5th.
We are well aware of the financial impact that this situation has had on many of our ST7 family members. We, too, have lost all forms of revenue and can not work due to the restrictions. With this in mind, we will not be sending out April's invoice. It is our hope to return to practice and extend this payment into the extended season. We will continue to keep you updated with this information.
As the call for social distancing continues, ST7 wants to keep our young athletes active to help with their physical and mental health. We hope that your athlete has enjoyed the workouts and messages being sent by their coach for each week. We will continue to send these throughout this time that we can not be in the gym and hope that you will encourage your athlete to take advantage of these and continue to stay active and get their hands on a volleyball as often as they can.
We will continue to pray for each of you and your families. We miss you all and can't wait until we can all reunite on the court. Thank you for your continued support of ST7 and our young athletes! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
