USA Volleyball Response on COVID-19

Message from USA Volleyball

May 20, 2020 Update

It is with a heavy heart that USA Volleyball must announce the cancellation of the remaining USA Volleyball Indoor National Championships for the 2020 season. This includes the Girls 18s Junior National Championship, Girls Junior National Championship, Boys Junior National Championship and High Performance Championship. With safety as our top priority and upon further evaluation of the current and projected status of the COVID-19 virus in each of our respective cities, we cannot be assured of each venue's ability to host safe and restriction-free environments for our events in June and July. We want to thank Dallas, Reno and Pittsburgh for their partnership and wonderful support as we navigated through this difficult decision. Most importantly, we want to thank our athletes, coaches, club directors and officials for their passion and patience throughout. We miss you already.

USAV will be issuing refunds immediately to all teams that have submitted a payment for each event, but please understand that these could take a few weeks to process. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to events@usav.org. All hotel cancellations will be handled by Team Travel Source. Please do not reach out to the hotels directly to cancel as this will cause more confusion and might cause you to have to pay a cancellation fee. Team Travel Source will make sure that there are no cancellation fees for our participants as long as the communication is through them. Please reach out to Team Travel Source if you have any questions about your hotel reservations at usav@teamtravelsource.com.

Although the Championship events will no longer be taking place this year, USAV will continue to provide wonderful online resources for our members and clubs through digital media channels. Please utilize our family and club resources page and follow us on social media for exclusive tips, drills, conditioning and other content created for you by the National Team athletes, coaches and training staff. New content is being produced and uploaded on a regular basis and is available free of charge.

Thank you again to all our members for your patience in this unprecedented time. We hope everyone stays safe and we can get back into the gym soon. We cannot wait to see you all again in the 2021 season.

 

May 13, 2020 Update - Return to Play Guidelines

USA Volleyball (USAV) has prepared Return to Play Guidelines for region leaders, club directors, event promoters, venue operators, members and families to provide guidance as volleyball activities begin to recommence across the United States.

The following recommendations are not intended or implied to be mandates. Many of these recommendations are based upon current guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other Federal government agencies. The knowledge surrounding COVID-19 is constantly changing and circumstances are different based on geographic region. Therefore, region leaders, club directors, event promoters and venue operators should adhere to their state and local guidelines when determining their own re-opening policies and procedures.

USAV will be resuming sanctioning of activities on May 15, 2020. All USAV sanctioned activities will be required to adhere to the most stringent federal, state or local guideline for their respective areas. USAV insurance coverage will only be provided for activities that are allowed under such government directives.

Until COVID-19 is either eradicated, a vaccine is developed, or a cure is found, there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of infection and as a result USAV strongly encourages all participants to follow these recommendations as safety precautions. The information in this document is not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, nor does USAV or its forty (40) Regional Volleyball Associations (Region(s)) assume any liability or responsibility for the recommendations provided herein.

Week Two of Colorado Crossroads has been Canceled.

Statement from Colorado Crossroads (issued April 6, 2020)

We are very sorry to announce that the re-schedule of Crossroads Week 2 for June 12-14 is no longer possible. The state of Colorado and city of Denver announced that the Convention Center is to be transformed into auxiliary hospital space due to COVID-19. This order is effective through June 30, 2020; the order may be extended if there is a need to do so.

We thank all of you who have shown such unflagging support for Crossroads – the teams, the coaches, the parents, the officials, the sponsors, the exhibitors, the vendors. Don’t forget Crossroads is on 3 weekends for 2021; February 26-28, March 5-7, and March 12-14. We’ll announce the age groups for each weekend very shortly.

Thank you again for all your support for Crossroads. We look forward to seeing you in Denver in 2021!

Update from the Mid-East Qualifier (issued April 20, 2020)

The first week of the Mid-East Qualifier, originally rescheduled to May 23-25 in St. Louis, has been canceled. The second week, held May 30-June 1 in Indianapolis, will still be held as rescheduled.

Statement from the SCVA (issued April 29, 2020)

We don’t want to mince our words. This is hard. We feel it with every email, meeting, and conversation. We know how important volleyball is to all of you. We know how passionate you are about the sport, and above all, we know that it’s much more than a sport. For many of us, it’s our lives. It’s how we met our partners. It’s how we’ve formed our families. It’s how we truly stay connected. We know all that because for the last 30+ years, we’ve felt the exact same way. Which is why, in all honesty, this next sentence is so incredibly difficult for us to write.

We regret to inform you that the Red Rock Rave has officially been CANCELED.Here’s a few things we can address at this time:

1. Nevada joined the Western States Coalition, and Governor Sisolak of Nevada emphasized stricter measures of social distancing, and shelter in place which is now in effect until the end of May.

2. The MGM has agreed to carryover our contracts and security deposits to 2021, meaning that each team registered will receive a refund minus $75.

3. These will be directed at offsetting the cost of awards and unsold merchandise, which were purchased months ago and are nonrefundable

4. The housing department is canceling reservations and working on processing refunds. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact KC Sports Housing directly atsupport@kcsportshousing.com

We’re deeply sorry we have to deliver this sad news. While we understand that this cancellation is 100% necessary to save lives, and is minimal compared to the afflictions many around the world are experiencing with COVID-19, it still hurts. We’re hurting with you, but through the hurt, let’s do our part together.

Stay home and stay safe. We’ll be bumping, spiking, eating teriyaki bowls, tik tok-ing between games, and complaining about bad calls and poor tournament seeding soon enough. Yes, we even miss that part, too.

Best until we’re back again,

-The SCVA

The Show Me National Qualifier has been canceled.

May 13, 2020 Update

It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the Asics Show Me National Qualifier for 2020. With the new parameters for re-opening that Kansas City has put in place, it just would not be possible to run the event on June 12-14. We will begin processing refunds immediately but please understand that these could take a few weeks to process. All hotel cancellations will be handled by Team Travel Source. Thank you for hanging in there with us as we tried to re-schedule this event. We hope to see you all back in 2021.

Sincerely,
Show Me Qualifier Staff

The Northeast Qualifier has been canceled.

The Northeast Qualifier is a USAV-sanctioned event. For the latest information about the qualifier, visit the Northeast Qualifier website.

Statement from the Northeast Qualifier (issued May 13, 2020)

It is with great disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of the 2020 Under Armour Northeast Qualifier. Every effort was made by the NEQ staff and the city of Philadelphia to construct a way that we could still host the event, but ultimately, we simply ran out of time in the 2020 club volleyball season. We appreciate the support of the City of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau; our partners including Under Armour and Molten; the Keystone Region and USA Volleyball; and most importantly the clubs that make the NEQ a great event.

If you have not yet been contacted by a member of the NEQ staff regarding refund/credit options, please contact Julie Rife at julierife@ecvb.org for details.

EM2 Housing will cancel all of the hotel reservations setup through their blocks for this event. There is no further action required on your part. Should you have any questions or require any additional information, feel free to contact EM2 Housing at em2housing@em2housing.com or 800-603-0917.

Lastly, we are working to create a July event to help fill the void for interested clubs/teams/players. You’ll receive more information on that event when the details are finalized.

We wish everyone a happy and healthy summer and look forward to seeing every back at the NEQ in 2021!

Regards,

NEQ Staff

The Lone Star Classic has been canceled.

Statement from the Lone Star Classic (issued May 13, 2020)

Good afternoon,

As many of you know, the Mizuno Lone Star Classic family has been holding on tight to the hope that we would be able to host the 33rd Annual Mizuno Lone Star Classic National Qualifier. Unfortunately, after a recent update from the City of Dallas and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (KBHCCD), we are heartbroken to have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 event. The cancellation of LSC also includes the cancellation of the SWBT Finals and Tour Finals 18s events that were scheduled to be hosted in conjunction with the LSC. While it was extremely difficult to hear the decision, we understand and agree that this is in the best interest of all those involved with the event.

We want to thank all of our partners that have hung in there with us, including the KBHCCD and the Dallas Sports Commission; our sponsors including Mizuno, Molten and Courts Galore; our staff who has worked tirelessly these last two months to try to find ways to make the LSC happen; the North Texas Region and USA Volleyball; and most importantly, the clubs that have supported our event over the last 30+ years. Like you, our Austin Junior Volleyball players and coaches are among the many looking forward to the competition and camaraderie at the event. While the historical records of the LSC will show an asterisk next to 2020 - the year that wasn’t - rest assured that in the years to come, the Lone Star Classic will continue to provide a world-class event, whatever that iteration might look like.

At this time, here is what we know:

  1. Entry Fees
    Teams will have the option to either receive a refund or to take credits for the 2021 season.
    • Credits: Mizuno LSC will be offering credits to teams who wish to receive hotel VIP status, spectator wristbands priority, and full entry fee credit towards the 2021 LSC event. If interested in taking advantage of this, please email events@austinsportscenter.com.
    • Refunds: We will begin processing refunds on June 15th. We appreciate your patience as we work through the logistics of this. Please note we will be processing all refunds via e-check to eliminate additional transaction fees to be withheld from the refund amount.
  2. Hotels
    EM2 Housing will cancel all of the hotel reservations setup through their blocks for this event. There is no further action required on your part and there will be no cancellation penalties. Should you have any questions or require any additional information, feel free to contact EM2 Housing at em2housing@em2housing.com or 800-603-0917.
  3. On the Horizon
    We will be looking at opportunities to host small summer series tournaments catered to local/regional teams and will announce more details early next week.

We were able to contact over 1,000 teams by phone in the last week and we sincerely appreciate the clubs who were able to commit to leaving their 2020 entry fees as credits for 2021. We also received exceptional feedback and suggestions that we will use to make the 2021 Lone Star Classic event the best ever. More on those exciting announcements in the coming months.

More importantly, we appreciate the overwhelming support from the entire volleyball community that has helped make the Lone Star Classic a premier event that we take great pride in hosting. Hosting volleyball events is part of who we are and we are already counting down the days until we hear the whistles signaling the start of play at next year’s event!

We hope you all stay safe and stay healthy.

The Big South Qualifier has been canceled.

The Big South Qualifier is a USAV-sanctioned event. For the latest information about the status of the qualifier, visit the Big South Qualifier webpage.

Big South Qualifier Statement (issued May 12, 2020)

Good afternoon Big South Family,

Unfortunately the time that we all have dreaded to accept has come. This is hard. Our staff, along with the city of Atlanta, have been working tirelessly to do everything in our power to try keep a small sliver of normalcy during these wavering times. We know how important volleyball is to all of you, and how important this tournament is to the players that attend. It is a community, a family, that could not have been built without the love that you all share for this amazing sport. To us, and all of you, this sport is more than just that.. It is our lives. It is the foundation of our families. It has been, and will continue to be, the gateway to life-long friendships. It is the stomping grounds for the creation of young player's passions. For the last 30+ years, we’ve let that love, that community, be the driving force behind the success of this event. It was the fuel that took Big South out of the city of Tampa, and allowed it to thrive into what it has become in our second home of Atlanta.

We have heard the pleas to continue this event. We have read the positive posts from families and clubs choosing to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have seen the begging posts from players asking us to do whatever we can to make this event happen for their final club season. Which is why it is with a heavy heart, and a lump in our throat, that we have to write this next line.

We regret to inform you that the Big South National Qualifier has officially been CANCELED.

The weekend of June 5-7 will be as lonely for us as it will for you. We will be missing the hustle and bustle of AM Wave, the whistles and cheers from hundreds of courts and the late nights in the gym with our PM wave tie-breakers. Because of that, please make sure to keep an eye out on our social platforms that weekend for our #BigSouthAtHome Challenge.

Now for more information:

  • We will be processing refunds starting at the end of this week. Please understand that this may take some time.
  • THS will take care of canceling all hotel reservations that were made through THS.
    • If anyone has made reservations, outside of THS's block of BSQ rooms, they will need to cancel their reservations on their own,
    • If you have any questions or concerns regarding housing, please contact THS directly at Teams@THSweb.com.

There is more:
As much as it hurts us to share this sad news with you, there is a glimmer of hope at the end of this tunnel. We plan on running an event July 10-12th which will allow you, the players and staff, to determine if you want your season to be over or not. There will be no bids -- So this won't be the qualifier you know us to be. Our goal is to create a festival with great volleyball and a great atmosphere to continue the tradition that volleyball has given us all.

More information regarding the Big South Festival to come in the following weeks.

Stay home and stay safe so we can get back in the gym in July and do what we love best. PLAY VOLLEYBALL!!

All the Best,
The Big South Staff

Statement from NCVA (issued April 8, 2020)

Hello Coaches, Players, and Parents,

We hope you are all staying healthy and well during these trying times. After much consideration, the NCVA has made the very tough decision to cancel the remainder of our season. This was not an easy decision to make and we ended up determining it was in the best interest of everyone's safety that we cancel all of our future events.

Parents, we thank you for the kind words some of you have taken to time to write in to us full of your support and concerns for our well being. Our staff are safe and working remotely to help with the day-to-day questions you may have, so feel free to continue to reach out to us if you have any questions. In regards to refunds, we have spoken with your Club Director and notified them about the refund process of team entry fees. This process will take some time as we had a record number of team entries this year. We ask for not only patience on our end but on behalf of your Club Directors as well. This is uncharted territory for us all and it will take some time to navigate these new issues many of us face. Please keep supporting your athletes and clubs by encouraging virtual training and team meetings, and following other guidance from your clubs.

Coaches, we see many of you on social media making your best efforts to stay connected with your players through video chats, TikTok Challenges, and more. Your hard work and determination to boost team morale continues to be shown on and off the court and we appreciate your dedication to your team during these difficult times.

Players, your innovation and creativity to keep your skills sharp and tuned truly shows the meaning of being an Athlete. Many of you turning to Instagram to show off your favorite memories, and at home skill challenges, is the virtual demonstration of strength of the volleyball community. The decision to cancel this event and our season did not come easy as we knew that you, as players, would take the brunt of the impact. Please take this unprecedented time as an opportunity to continue to develop your skills at home. We will be sharing many upcoming webinars for not only coaches but also players to help them with at-home workouts, tips on college scouting, and much more! The NCVA Instagram will also have a couple featured takeovers and guest spots in the coming months featuring current and previous Olympians and their tips for achieving your greatest potential. We hope to host a late-summer event, if the situation allows, so keep an eye out for info. We can't wait to have you back on the court!

Thank you all again for your support and patience during this time. As mentioned before, our staff remain available if any you have any questions.

Stay safe and healthy,

NCVA Staff

Opens Participants and Fans,

It is with a sad heart that we must officially cancel the 2020 USA Volleyball Open National Championships in Minneapolis, Minn.

We want to thank everyone for providing their feedback on the survey that was sent out last week. In order to host the best event possible, we need all of our participants from all over the U.S. and abroad to be able to compete for their respective championship.

Molten USA Advice on Cleaning Volleyballs - Updated March 9, 2020

Molten USA has received many inquiries regarding how best to clean and/or sanitize volleyballs, as the 2020 club volleyball travel season continues in the midst of the current virus unease. In brief analysis, the use of sanitizing wipes inclusive of bleach or similar disinfectant have proven to be effective against emerging viral pathogens. However due to the porous surface of the leather and composite volleyballs, tests have not confirmed the ability to kill the novel coronavirus. When using the wipes, it is suggested to place the wipe in one hand while thoroughly rotating the ball to ensure cleaning of the entire surface. Once the entire surface has been cleansed, the ball will need to dry prior to being placed back in use. Please note due to the chemical properties in the wipes, some of the ink on the ball may be removed. Alcohol wipes have resulted in damage to the product and are not recommended at this time.

Please note this is not a recommended practice for regular use when the need for sanitizing volleyballs is not a concern.

Always consult your doctor for medical advice. There are currently no vaccines to protect you against human coronavirus infections, For more information please refer to the CDC website.

Proactive Precautions to Take

  • Most importantly, if you have a respiratory illness or fever, please stay home.
  • Get a flu vaccine.
  • Avoid contact with sick people (if you’re sick, limit contact with others).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with something disposable (like a tissue) when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Clean frequently touched items (cell phones, airplane seating area -tray table, screens, windows, arm rests, air vents, etc.).
  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at 60%–95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
    • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Bring extra hand sanitizer with you to all events.
