UPDATE: Let's Meet 7 PM
I pray you are enjoying good health and are prepared to reenter a reimagined normalcy. My purpose in writing is to update everyone about the status of the 2019/20 club season.
Both Northern Volleyball Association (NCVA) and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) have canceled their season. Our 14's team plays in AAU sponsored tournaments. The West Coast Cup at Long Beach hosted by Junior Volleyball Association is canceled.
On Wednesday, I participated in a virtual meeting with Club Directors and Shannon Davenport, Assistant Director of the Southern California Association. SCVA intends to host the remaining mandatory in June 2020. Some play on weekdays is being discussed as an option. A more detailed copy of the meeting notes is posted on our NU Breed website.
Since that meeting, SCVA informed us they canceled the So. Cal Championships to make space for one-day tournaments. The notes posted on the website don't reflect this information.
Also discussed was the refund policy.
"Refunds will be issued as timely as possible, but will require time due to the amount of refunds being issued. Each refund will be discussed individually with the director. ■ Issue of Prepaid Clubs vs Non Prepaid Clubs Working on a way to not penalize the clubs that paid in full. Any deductions kept are to cover operating costs incurred."
NU Breed has been working with clubs to host a one-day tournament at McDermont X in the early part of June. This will include all of our teams unless it conflicts with 18's and 16's SCVA tournaments.
Additionally, USVA has cleared us to resume practices with restrictions, and each athlete must have COVID-19 Waiver signed and on file. A copy of the Waiver can be printed from our website. We will collect the Waiver at the first practice. The USVA restrictions are posted on the club page. They are posted under "FORMS."
I want you to know that NU Breed is committed to making this season the best possible experience. We do not know how everything will transpire but we will work tirelessly to redeem the season.
To have a more direct connection, I want to invite everyone to a zoom meeting this Thursday at 7 PM.
Thank you for your patience and I look forward to talking with you soon.
Here is a copy of the invitation. Prior registration and password are required. We look forward to seeing you Thursday.
