To Hoosier Region volleyball leaders and constituents.
We at the Hoosier Region Office feel we should respect and follow the guidance of what the various National Volleyball organizations propose to follow during this time of the many virus problems that are presently bring felt all over the world! Therefore we propose that as Hoosier Region club directors we ask that you use your best judgement for your individual club participants but the Region does ask you to cancel all of your existing volleyball activities through March 22!
Please read over the bulletin below that we recently received and pass it along to your staff and all participants and their parents. Hoosier Region and USA Volleyball will continue to monitor this situation very closely and will provide frequent updates (including decisions for events after March 22nd) as new information becomes available.
Dear USA Leadership,
Given the recent events including but not limited to the NCAA announcement regarding championship attendance, the NBA suspending their season and the President’s announcement to halt all travel from Europe, and an emergency call with the USOPC to discuss the Coronavirus situation, USA Volleyball is recommending the postponement or cancellation of all USAV nationally sanctioned events though March 22nd. This includes week 2 of Colorado Crossroads, MEQ, PNQ, HP tryouts and the coaching clinic planned for next week in Anaheim. This decision was articulated to the qualifier directors prior to the public announcement which was then posted on our website and across social media channels (to reach the participants in the broadest manner possible) and was made to ensure the safety of our participants, spectators and staff.
We are recommending that all regionally sanctioned events follow this same direction.
USA Volleyball will continue to monitor this situation very closely and will provide frequent updates (including decisions for events after March 22nd) as new information becomes available. We will furthermore be keeping our website up to date with the latest developments.
Chief Executive Officer
