CEVA Announcement

Dear PDX VB Families,

CEVA announced this morning that the remainder of the club volleyball season will be canceled.  (Please see message at www.cevaregion.org). While we are incredibly saddened by this news and know that there will be a lot of disappointment, we understand and support this difficult decision.

With this announcement, we know that there will be lots of questions and we continue to ask for your patience as we’re working through the logistics of a canceled season.

We are in communication with CEVA and other clubs in the region for reimbursement of tournament fees that we were unable to compete in due to this cancelation. If you have paid your PDX VB club dues in full, you will be eligible to receive a partial payment back.  Please stay tuned as we will send more details regarding payments as soon as we have more information from CEVA in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your continued support. Please take care of your families and loved ones during this difficult time. We look forward to getting back on the court soon!

Best,

PDX)))VB Staff

MESSAGE FROM COLUMBIA EMPIRE VOLLEYBALL ASSOCIATION

Thursday, March 12, 2020

Due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, Columbia Empire Volleyball Association (CEVA) will be suspending all sanctioned tournament play in the region through at least March 22nd.  This decision applies to CEVA Power Leagues, as well club-hosted tournaments sanctioned by CEVA and USA Volleyball, and is subject to extension. 

This decision comes following directives issued by USA Volleyball on March 11th, and the orders expected to be issued today by Oregon Governor Kate Brown.

CEVA will evaluate the possibility of rescheduling Power League tournaments and will make more information available by March 31st.  Please continue to check our website for the latest information and understand that changes to the PL calendar will be announced there first.  If a reschedule of Power League is not possible, clubs will receive a pro-rated refund or credit for the tournament missed.

We ask all our members to continue to educate themselves with the latest information on COVID-19.  Club directors, coaches, and facility owners in particular should make themselves aware of the directives issued by local, state, and national governing agencies regarding large gatherings and non-essential activities.  Clubs who choose to hold practices during this time should ensure their athletes and families are made aware of those directives and recommendations.

As always, we encourage our members to practice good hygiene habits, and to stay home if you’re sick.

The CEVA office will remain open, and our staff will remain as accessible as possible in the coming days and weeks.  Once again, please continue to check our website and social media channels for updates – those will be the first places new information will be announced. 

Please direct your questions via e-mail to region@cevaregion.org.
