ALOHA REGION JUNIORS UPDATE 09/28/20

 

Aloha All,
 
How is everyone doing these days?  We hope you are all staying healthy and enjoying the summer!
 
Here are some announcements that we'd like to share.
 
2021 USA Volleyball Championships
  • 18s GJNC - April 23-25, 2021 - Columbus, Ohio
  • Open Nationals - May 28 - June 2, 2021 - Louisville, Kentucky
  • GJNC - June 23 - July 5, 2021 - Las Vegas, Nevada

Additional information from USA Volleyball (Chris Vadala) 
 
1. We are updating the Boys and Girls 2021 Championship Manuals. Manuals will go out at the conclusion of the Fall RVAA meeting. 
 
2. In an effort to operate efficiently during the ever-changing landscape of COVID, we will be sharing the 2021 Event Deadline document differently this season. We are transitioning the document to be adaptable to real-time updates from the events department since there may be adjustments as the upcoming season unfolds. This will give you information that you can share with your clubs about important deadlines. We will communicate out if we do make a major adjustment, and there will also be a date stamp in the upper right-hand corner of each of the documents from the latest update. 
 
 
 
 
3. We continue to work on potential contingency plans and options for the 2021 season. 
 
4. We are starting conversations with TTS and JA Elite Development group on how to educate the public on why we use the Stay to Play Policy for our events 
 
5. AES is moving all credit card transactions over to Stripe for the 2020-2021 season 
 
6. USAV will take over ownership of the Sunshine Classic. For the past two years, we have worked with the Florida Region and want to thank them for their partnership. USAV will take over the Sunshine Classic for 11-17 bid divisions, with the Florida Region running the 18s Girls Qualifier.
 
​That's it for now!  Stay healthy...

2020-21 MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

 

Aloha Members,

Membership registration will now be completed via Sports Engine Member Management System, (SE MMS).  The three attachments should give you some insight into the process to register for this upcoming season.  The links to various training videos and information videos are all very good.

We understand that getting used to a new system will take some time and there will be times when frustrations will emerge.  Please be patient, we understand that having to deal with the COVID virus will also test our patience.

An announcement regarding the Official start date of the 2020 - 2021 season should be made shortly.

We do recognize that the fall high school sports season has been postponed until either the winter or spring session.  There will be a conflict between the club and high school volleyball.  USA Volleyball is working with the NHFS to hopefully resolve this potential conflict.

The State needs to get better so "large gatherings" can be allowed.  There will be additional safety protocols at our tournaments to comply with USA Volleyball, State, and CDC guidelines.  We hope to keep up with the rapidly changing rules and guidelines and ask for your patience and understanding going forward.

Mahalo for the Aloha Region Staff.

Kent Ma
Commissioner

2020-21 ALOHA REGION TRYOUT/COMMITMENT POLICY

 

The 2020-21 Aloha Region Tryout/Commitment Policy is being formulated.  Due to the ever-changing situation and resulting availability of venues and restrictions, it has been difficult to determine dates which would provide a level playing field for everyone. We do expect to arrive at a final document with the understanding that changes will occur as Federal, State, and CDC guidelines allow.  Stay tuned!!
