USA Volleyball COVID Update (2/18/21): https://usavolleyball.org/usa-volleyballs-covid-19-updates/
RETURN TO PLAY UPDATE: New York State has updated their guidelines to potentially allow volleyball athletes the opportunity to return to play. You can review the updates at https://www.governor.ny.gov/sites/governor.ny.gov/files/atoms/files/SportsAndRecreationMasterGuidance.pdf .
IREVA recommends all club directors to contact their local department of health to clarify exactly when you can return to play, and what limitations may need to be considered.
Each County has its own policy on group and sport activities, all subject to State guidance and limitations. Furthermore, each facility owner will have their own policy, all subject to State and local limitations. [NFHS and NYSPHSAA guidelines do not directly affect our clubs, but they may be factors that facility owners consider.] What’s worse, those policies are subject to change day-to-day based on State and local conditions. Clubs are responsible for determining what is applicable to their situation and staying up-to-date.
IREVA will sanction events on request. We assume that clubs requesting a sanction will comply with all State and local mandates and take all appropriate precautions. Given the wide variety of situations in our area, it’s no surprise that some clubs are active and some are not. If you have questions on sanctioning a practice or a tournament, please contact Scott Wilhelm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some events that are being planned, to keep in mind:
IREVA will host Junior Regionals May 15-16, 2021 *Click here for results*
USAV will host Girls Junior Indoor Nationals
USAV will host Boys Junior Indoor Regionals
USAV will host Adults Indoor Nationals
USAV has cancelled their High Performance Indoor National Championship for 2021.
IREVA has cancelled their High Performance Indoor Program for 2021.
FYI – in case you’re not aware, some D-I college conferences are proceeding with volleyball as a fall sport. If your cable provider offers ESPNU, ACC, SEC, Longhorn, and/or various FoxSports networks, take a look. You’ll see a variety of masks, sanitation, and spectator policies, as well as some quality volleyball.
