“Think of the pursuit of your dream as being like at a major athletic event. Train for it. As you prepare and “exercise” you get stronger – mentally, emotionally, and physically. To successfully achieve your dream, you need to keep improving. The best way to do that is to… Keep your body fit ~ Keep your heart flexible ~ Keep your mind open ~ Keep expanding your comfort zone”.
By John C. Maxwell ~ Success One Day At A Time
We hope everyone is healthy and safe. As you know, California has enacted protocols to help curb COVID-19 and we trust everyone is practicing social distancing following all recommendations by the CDC, our Governor and the Federal Government.
We know there have been many questions regarding the remainder of the volleyball club season. We have been waiting patiently to hear from our governing body, (NCVA) Northern California Volleyball Association which is in direct contact with (USAV) the United States Volleyball Association. They have been following all CDC recommendations. Currently, our region has not provided details regarding future play dates. See below an email released Tuesday 3/31/2020 from (NCVA) Northern California Volleyball Association.
"Hello NCVA Club Directors,
USA Volleyball announced this morning that they will be extending their elimination on sanctions through April 30, 2020. Please read their statement below for more information:
"USA Volleyball is extending 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 30, 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."
Thank you and stay #VolleyStrong,"
The Governor of Nevada has recently announced a 30-day shutdown within the state, which will affect Week 1 of Far Westerns. With this new information, we have made the tough decision to reschedule both weekends of our National Qualifier.
We are working diligently with RSCVA/Reno-Sparks Convention Center and the Hotels to secure new dates. An announcement will be sent once the rescheduled dates are confirmed.
For hotel reservations booked through THS, they will work with the hotels to cancel your reservation(s). The hotels will be issuing refunds for any deposits made for the April reservations. We ask that you await an email from THS regarding this process, and allow time as this is a big task.
At this time Gold Cal Jrs will not be able to participate in the rescheduled Red Rock Rave Qualifier dates because it conflicts with NCVA Regional Finals. We have not heard any updated information regarding NCVA Power or Premier Leagues possible rescheduled dates. We are hopeful that all play will be resume on 4/1/20.
From SCVA on 3/16/20
"It is with great sadness that the SCVA will also need to postpone the Red Rock Rave 1 and the Red Rock Rave 2. Some of our clubs, teams, athletes, and families may be disappointed in this postponement; however, the SCVA hopes that this will help keep our community safe by limiting the exposure that could occur at the venue. "
From KC Sportshousing 3/16/20
"The hotels will be automatically cancelling all reservations that are booked through KC Sports Housing for the Las Vegas Red Rock Rave tournaments.
They will also refund the deposit on the reservation within 7-10 business days after they cancel the rooms. Please be patient as we will get these cancelled as soon as possible."
