Great Lakes Volleyball & USA Volleyball Updates

3/31/20 Update

You are not alone.  Yes, we are apart but we are never alone;  as long as we have each other!

In this period of social distancing, separating, and the new, not so good, norm we must listen to the advice from medical experts on how to stay healthy. For right now, staying healthy means staying home. Staying away from our volleyball friends and events is hard and we miss the sounds of a gym, the balls bouncing and the whistles blowing.  But for now the gyms are empty and the balls are all packed in carts standing ready for our return.  We will all be back playing volleyball but for now let's focus on love, gratitude, courage, creativity, fun and laughter.  


Some updates:  USAV has extended the "no sanction time" through April 30, 2020

  • The Olympics have been canceled until sometime in 2021
  • Sunday President Trump announced that Americans should stay home until April 30th and avoid groups of more than 10 people. 
  • McCormick Place will be used to help hospitals for the coronavirus.
  • The USA Volleyball website has information posted regarding potential resources to help small businesses during this difficult time.
  • The Dallas Convention Center will get Texas’ first pop-up hospital for coronavirus
  • USAV announced that the 18’s GJNC has been postponed 
  • Opens – no  new information at this time
  • Boys JNC – no new information at this time
  • Girls JNC – no new information at this time

Good Evening GLR Club Directors,

As always, thank you for your support and cooperation during this difficult time.
