RE: Bid for a Juniors National Qualifier in Boston
Over the last few months, NERVA has been working in a partnership to bring about a Junior National Qualifier to Boston. After much work, a bid was submitted in June to the USA Volleyball advisory committee. The following cities bid on the event, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Milwaukee, New Orleans and Salt Lake City.
The final 3 cities after the first cut were Boston, Chicago and New Orleans
We were informed today that Chicago has been awarded a JNQ. Although our bid was quite strong and viable, one of the main reasons for choosing Chicago was the overall volleyball population that the event would serve in that part of the country.
While we are very disappointed in the results we do understand. We wish to THANK everyone who has worked on this project along with all of those who have supported us. We will continue to develop volleyball programming in our region and support the programs we already have in place.
Your NERVA leadership will remain committed to develop the sport we love.
