Dear Allegiant parents and players,
We want to thank everyone for their patience with all of the unknown factors this season. This year has been very devastating to everyone in so many different ways. The health and safety of our Allegiant families is very important to us. We would like to acknowledge the first responders, health care workers, and all essential employees who risk their own health to provide the services that we need daily. We also want to offer our gratitude to the teachers and school staff who continue to be a support system for our athletes and their families. We will continue to pray for all of these amazing individuals.
Now it is with a heavy heart that we must announce the NTR cancellation of the remaining tournaments this season. With this being said, Allegiant Volleyball Club will continue to provide services to it's players and families. We are working diligently to secure a location for practices, camps, clinics, and private lessons. We have also been communicating with other clubs in order to hold scrimmages against their teams.
There will be several return to play guidelines that we must follow in order to ensure the safety of all our athletes and coaches. We will send out more information regarding this when a practice location has been established. For more information we will be using the USAV Return to Play Guidelines. Additional information can be found on our COVID-19 page.
With the impact Coronavirus has had on our youth this year, we believe that club volleyball is crucial when it comes to their mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Our coaches will continue to help guide and support our athletes through this difficult time.
While we will be returning to play, our summer program is NOT mandatory. It is understandable if you don't feel comfortable returning to play due to Covid. We recommend that every parent and athlete do what they feel is safe. No player will be ridiculed or held accountable for missing summer program. However, if they are not involved in the summer program, we strongly suggest they workout and find other ways to practice during this time. Tryouts for both club and school volleyball will begin in late July-early August.
We are very excited to get back on the court and can't wait to see our players and their families. We have missed you all so much! See you soon and God Bless!
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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.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.
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.
It looks like most of us will be staying home for the foreseeable future. Need help coming up with ways to keep fit during social distancing? Or explain to your children what's going on? Visit our Family Resources page for tips from various professionals on a variety of topics.
