March 17, 2020 NTR Update:
We wanted to take a moment to reach out and thank everyone for their understanding for the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and the event cancellations and suspensions. While these unprecedented actions have upset some, and many are understandably disappointed, volleyball is family, and we wanted to act in the best interests of our family. We are continuing to actively monitor recommendations from local, state and national governing bodies as well as working to extent our season until the end of June to allow time to reschedule all postponed region events. This may include moving Bid Regionals later into May and moving McChesney Championships into June as a Pre-Nationals warm-up. As you’re aware, circumstances are changing by the hour and our staff is working hard to stay on top of everything. We have created a page on our website for weekly status of NTR and National events planned for the coming days and months. USAV is in constant communication regarding the current situation and we will post any updates on this same page.

USA Volleyball Response – CEO Jamie Davis
March 19, 2020 Update – 3:30 p.m. Mountain
USA Volleyball is announcing the elimination of sanctions for all USA Volleyball activities (including but not limited to events, practices, team activities, individual training sessions or anything covered by USA Volleyball insurance) through April 15, 2020. USA Volleyball is monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates on a regular basis.
USA Volleyball has been asked by local clubs whether such ban applies to club activities covered under the club’s own (non-USA Volleyball) insurance. In these situations, USA Volleyball strongly encourages all member clubs and coaches to adhere to USA Volleyball’s policies. However, should a club decide to voluntarily disregard those policies and assume all risks associated therewith, we recommend that the club adhere to CDC; local, state and federal guidelines and recommendations when deciding whether or not to host practices or individual training sessions. If a club does host practice or individual training sessions, those activities would be considered a non-sanctioned activity by USA Volleyball and thus NOT covered by USA Volleyball insurance.
The health and welfare of our membership, volleyball families and fellow citizens is our primary concern in all decisions we are making during these uncharted times.
