COVID-19 Update Page
LATEST UPDATE (5/20 @ 8pm cst)
Due to recent events and information concerning the current status of the COVID-19 coronavirus, USA Volleyball has eliminated the sanctioning for all USA Volleyball activities until May 22nd. We will adhere to USA Volleyball and postpone all Houston Junior activities and programing until May 22nd. This is to help ease some of the current virus concerns across the country (and world) while allowing everyone in our volleyball community to take a momentarily pause to ensure the welfare and safety of our athletes, spectators and staff. At that time, we will review the situation and inform all our coaches, athletes and parents of our plan moving forward. During this time, FAST Complex will be closed.
