Lone Star Regionals, Houston, TX originally scheduled for May 2-3 for 13R, 13B
As of today, Regional qualifiers have not been canceled or postponed. Hotel reservations should not be canceled until/if notified.
AAU National Championships, Orlando, Florida (originally scheduled for various dates in June depending on age division for 14R, 16R, 17R, 17B)
18s Girls Junior National Championships, Reno, NV scheduled for May 1-3
Girls Junior National Championships, Dallas, TX scheduled for various dates in June
All practices have been cancelled through May 1st given the current ordinance invoked by Austin Mayor Steve Adler restricting the gathering size in the city to 10 people or fewer. We are working with the RRSC and SMAC to schedule additional practices in May and will provide updates through Team App as times are confirmed. It is our hope that the Lone Star Regional Qualifier tournaments will proceed, even if delayed. USAV is also working on proposals for when and how to award bids to the National Championships considering that many other qualifying opportunities that have been impacted. Based on the results of their proposals and the results of Regionals, qualifying teams would participate in the National Championships in Dallas.
Dues/Pro-Rated Credits Updates
Currently and until we get future guidance from USA Volleyball we are working under the assumption that some number of tournaments along with the National Championship will still occur this season. Given this, we ask that you continue paying dues as scheduled. Until we have the full picture of the remainder of the season and the specific credits for canceled tournaments, canceled court rentals, etc. that we are able to recover we are unable to determine the overall pro-rated credits that we would potentially be available to return.
USA Volleyball has this page dedicated to this situation where they will be posting the latest information on the outbreak, USAV event updates, recommended health precautionary measures and any event-specific protocols that will be adjusted as a result of the virus. USAV Website Updates: Click Here
