North Texas Region Announcement: UPDATED March 17

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.

March 11, 2020 Update – 10 p.m. Mountain

Hello North Texas Region Members,

USA Volleyball sent this message out late yesterday concerning their response to COVID-19.

Due to recent events and information concerning the current status of the COVID-19 coronavirus, USA Volleyball is recommending that all USAV-sanctioned events scheduled through March 22 be postponed or cancelled to ensure the welfare and safety of our athletes, spectators and staff. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will provide periodic updates as information becomes more apparent. Please refer to this page for the latest updated information on USA Volleyball events.

NTR will support USAVs recommendation that all USAV sanctioned events  be canceled until March 22, 2020. We are working with USAV to monitor the situation and will provide updates on our website and Facebook page. Our region is unlike others in that we do not run or operate the majority of the events in the region. It will be up to each  Host Club, Tournament Director or Promoter to make a determination in the matter.  Please consult your Club Director for any specific club decision regarding events and practice. Ultimately it will be your choice to attend or not attend any practice or event that chooses to not cancel. Please communicate your decision with your coach and club director. Adult events will be determined by the  Promoter. Please check with them regarding their decision on these events.

These decisions were made to ensure the safety of our participants, spectators and staff.

The North Texas 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.
