The Delta Region Volleyball Association is one of the 40 Regional Governing Bodies in the United States for Volleyball. We work with USA Volleyball in implementing volleyball programming in our geographic area, which includes the states of Arkansas, northern Mississippi (above Hwy 84) and the part of Tennessee west of the Tennessee River.
The Delta Region operates as a non-profit and non-government supported organization and is organized and governed by an elected volunteer board of directors.
Our mission is to promote, develop and expand volleyball opportunities for individuals within the region.
Our goal is to provide support and resources for players, coaches, officials and club leadership to improve skills and enhance the enjoyment of the game within a safe, positive environment.
As announced on April 24, 2020, USAV and the USAV Board of Directors created a joint task force to create a Return to Play Action Plan for USA Volleyball in the United States. The group spent several weeks gaining information from the USOPC, CDC, tournament directors, other NGBs and medical professionals to develop a comprehensive strategy with the safety of our members as a top priority. The process was comprehensive, inclusive and thorough.
Today I am happy to announce the release of USA Volleyball’s Return to Play Guidelines. These guidelines will be effective May 15 and will supersede the previously announced ban on sanctions that was scheduled to expire on May 22.
It is with a heavy heart that USA Volleyball must announce the cancellation of the remaining USA Volleyball Indoor National Championships for the 2020 season. This includes the Girls 18s National Championship, the Girls National Championship, the Boys National Championship and the High Performance Championship. With safety as our top priority and upon further evaluation of the current and projected status of the COVID-19 virus in each of our respective cities, we cannot be assured of each venues’ ability to host safe and restriction-free environments for our events in June & July. We want to thank Dallas, Reno and Pittsburgh for their partnership and wonderful support as we navigated through this difficult decision. Most importantly, we want to thank our athletes, coaches, clubs’ directors and officials for their passion and patience throughout. We miss you already!
USAV will be issuing refunds immediately to all teams that have submitted a payment for each event, but please understand that these could take a few weeks to process. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. All hotel cancelations will be handled by Team Travel Source. Please do not reach out to the hotels directly to cancel, as this will cause more confusion, and might cause you to have to pay a cancelation fee. Team Travel Source will make sure that there are no cancelation fees for our participants as long as the communication is through them! Please reach out to Team Travel Source if you have any questions about your hotel reservations email@example.com.
Although the Championship events will no longer be taking place this year, USAV will continue to provide wonderful online resources for our members and clubs through digital media channels. Please check out all of our resources at go.usav.org/familyresources and follow us on social media for exclusive tips, drills, conditioning and other content created for you by the Team USA National team athletes, coaches and training staff. New content is being produced and uploaded on a regular basis and is available free of charge.
Thank you again to all of our members for your patience in this unprecedented time. We hope everyone stays safe and we can get back into the gym soon. We cannot wait to see you all again in the 2021 season.
