Red River Classic Week 1 & 2
We have finally been able to gather information from the State of Louisiana and the convention center regarding the situation regarding the Covid 19 virus.  Thank you for your patience.  I know this is a very stressful time for everyone.

We are in the process of securing space to move the event to either May 16/17 and/or May 23/24.

The housing bureau will be in touch with the hotels to cancel the hotel reservations, you will not need to take any action.

We understand that your season may be over, but we encourage you to extend a few weeks so that your kids can experience this event.  Traditionally a lot of teams are done by then; however, these are not traditional times.

Our survey this morning was very mixed, we have some people very passionate that think we need to cancel and on the other side saying we should not panic.  I feel it would be very hypocritical of me as the Commissioner of the North Texas Region to recommend that events be postponed and not follow that direction.  Please understand I am not trying to disappoint anyone.

We will work hard to make this the best Red River yet, we will also open up registration if you know of teams that would want to participate.  Please email me by Wednesday night and let me know if you are able to attend or not.  We will base the dates and divisions on the feedback to best accommodate as many as possible.

Again, thanks for your patience and understanding.  Please get this info to your parents asap, I know there is some real anxiety.

RED RIVER CLASSIC UPDATED: March 12

First of all, I want to thank everyone for their patience. We are in constant contact with the Shreveport Convention Center and with the Sports Commission who are monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 Virus. At this point, we do not have a final answer for the event but know that there are hotel deadlines that need to be met tomorrow.  We will do our best to have an answer by tomorrow so that teams/parents can make plans.

These are very difficult uncharted waters and we want to do what is best for everyone involved.
Please share this information with your parent asap, I am not able to keep up with the volume of emails at this point and could certainly use your help.

EAST TEXAS SERIES UPDATE: March 12
After consulting with our tournament partners, facility officials, and medical experts including the Vanderbilt University Medical Center w/ Pediatric Infectious Disease, we are saddened to have to let you know that it has been determined that we will have to postpone the East Texas Series #3 scheduled for March 14-15th, 2020.UT-Tyler, Tyler Junior College, the University of Arkansas and many other institutions are making difficult decisions regarding education and sporting events.  While we know this is disappointing for everyone involved it was evident that this is the necessary decision. In addition, USAV has begun canceling qualifiers in areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases and suggesting postponing events until March 22nd, 2020.

We will be working diligently with our partners and facilities to find other possible dates and we hope to have a new date by early next week.  We want to make sure USAV doesn’t extend the recommendation for cancelation.

Once that date is decided we will inform all parties. If teams are unable to make that rescheduled date, which we know may be difficult given the short notice, then teams will be able to register for any of our tournaments for the next 14 months at no additional cost.  If you can not attend that date, we will be able to offer 1/2 refund on your entry fees.  The NTR has a bad weather policy that should cover this, but it is far less liberal for the refund.

Again, we understand that this is a disappointing and difficult revelation, but it is important that the health of our athletes and their families be at the forefront of all decisions.
