March 9, 2020 update
In recent days, we have received several inquiries from individuals asking the status of USA Volleyball-organized and -sanctioned events as a result of the coronavirus. We are monitoring the situation very closely and are in contact with local authorities regarding each event. At this time, we have elected not to make any sweeping decisions regarding USA Volleyball-sanctioned events but rather address each according to the individual circumstances. We will follow and comply with any cancellation instructions levied by such local authorities.

Until further notice we are asking that all team handshakes/high fives/etc. be suspended and that teams and organizers follow all recommended precautionary measures.
