March 24, 2020 COVID19 Update

Club Directors, 
Hope everyone is well and safe. 
We are planing a NERVA Club Directors, March 30th at 11am. 
Please let me know if you will be able to attend this meeting.
Dave will be going over the most recent USAV announcements. 
I will be talking about future NERVA series tournaments.

All tournament dates in April have been canceled.

We are still running NERVA Series tournaments on May 3rd. 
I have been collecting site and dates that clubs have available in May and June. If you think you can get a site please let me know.
I do understand that anyone using a school or college may not know if their site will be available. 
Please start collecting information from your players, we need to have an idea of how many teams will be playing in May and June. 

Send me a list of how many teams, playing age and level.
Thanks and stay safe, 
Roxann Link
NERVA Jr. Commissioner

March 23, 2020 COVID19 Update

Dear Club Director,
I hope this email finds you safe and staying healthy.
I am writing to you in these unprecedented times to update you on our plans to restart the season as soon as we are allowed and to give you helpful information.
First I want to give you 2 important links to stay up to date on announcements. 
USA Volleyball COVID-19 page:
NERVA COVID-19 page:
Both pages are updated on a regular basis
I have had discussions with USA Volleyball and current thoughts are:
We need to have a season restart and offer events to membership. This both to allow play for our members and to protect clubs from financial disaster if they would need to provide season rebates.
The minimal projected restart would be the CDC current guideline of no gatherings over 50 for 8 weeks (thru 5/10)
We therefore are working on NERVA one day events on the weekends of May 9-10 and/or May 16-17. We will offer additional dates if needed. 
Both RI Rumble events have been cancelled and will be combined into 1 -3 day event on May 23-24-25. Details are still being worked out but clubs previously signed up would have priority in signing up for this event. There is an issue with Providence hotels being previously booked and we are working on that this week.
Things are changing daily and we will continue to plan to get everyone back on the court as soon as it is possible without compromising the health and safety of our members.
Thank You,
Dave Peixoto,
NERVA Commissioner
