Coronavirus - Academy Travel
The NC Volleyball Academy takes the safety of our athletes very seriously. We know the news of the coronavirus has everyone concerned as it should with our upcoming travel to tournaments. Please know that the administration of NC Volleyball Academy is closely monitoring this through advisories and updates while closely following the USAV organization who will be the ones to cancel the National Tournaments we are attending. Please see below the latest email that was sent to USA Volleyball Members and Friends:
March 19, 2020 Update - 3:30 p.m. Mountain
USA Volleyball is announcing the elimination of sanctions for all USA Volleyball activities (including but not limited to events, practices, team activities, individual training sessions or anything covered by USA Volleyball insurance) through April 15, 2020. USA Volleyball is monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates on a regular basis.
USA Volleyball has been asked by local clubs whether such ban applies to club activities covered under the club’s own (non-USA Volleyball) insurance. In these situations, USA Volleyball strongly encourages all member clubs and coaches to adhere to USA Volleyball’s policies. However, should a club decide to voluntarily disregard those policies and assume all risks associated therewith, we recommend that the club adhere to CDC; local, state and federal guidelines and recommendations when deciding whether or not to host practices or individual training sessions. If a club does host practice or individual training sessions, those activities would be considered a non-sanctioned activity by USA Volleyball and thus NOT covered by USA Volleyball insurance.
The health and welfare of our membership, volleyball families and fellow citizens is our primary concern in all decisions we are making during these uncharted times.
- Jamie Davis, CEO, USA Volleyball
Dear JVA member,
We are all closely following the evolution of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and based on the most recent updates, the Junior Volleyball Association is recommending that all JVA insured events (practices, clinics, camps, and tournaments) continue to be postponed to ensure the welfare and safety of the athletes, spectators and staff, as well as your respective community. We strongly recommend following the policies in place by your State Department of Public Health and local government. In light of the frequent updates from the CDC, local, state and national government, this decision could quickly change.
One bright spot in all the gloom, is the coming together of our volleyball community. Directors are connecting daily via live stream, email, text, phone calls, and we will continue to do our part to support our members any way that we can. This is a time to join together, support one another, and share resources to keep our clubs engaged and in a position to financially recover.
If you have purchased JVA Event insurance for any future events and need to cancel the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are able to cancel the insurance request and fully refund as long as we have a full two business days notice. Clubs need to follow the directives and recommendations of their local health organizations and governing agencies related to gatherings and restrictions.
We continue to monitor the spread of the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) daily. As of today, the 2020 JVA West Coast Cup, JVA SummerFest and JVA World Challenge are scheduled as planned. We will continue to monitor the national, state and city health recommendations in Long Beach, Columbus and Louisville. Our hope is to make a final assessment of the status of the JVA West Coast Cup by Monday, May 4th. If there are any updates before then, we will promptly notify all participating teams. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to follow local precautions to keep yourself healthy. View more here.
