All of us at New England AAU are monitoring the quickly changing state by state COVID guidelines. The current guidelines in MA, RI, and CT were recently changed to include rules against interstate travel.
The current guidelines in MA and CT were recently changed to include rules against tournaments including multiple teams on 1 day.
We do not know when these guidelines may change, and when they do, what the next set of rules will include.
For now, we are keeping the Champions League dates penciled in but will not start accepting registrations until we have some clarity on when we will be able to actually host them.
We are keeping registration open for our February and May events and are still hopeful that they will run as planned.
To help off set the large amount tournament cancellations due to COVID-19, New England AAU Volleyball has rescheduled other events and even created a new one.
This new 3 Day Memorial Day Weekend tournament will be held on May 23-25 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. The event is already filling up, so please register soon if you are interested.
We do understand that the future of the COVID-19 situation is unpredictable at this time. We will continue to keep all teams updated with any future updates.
As you already know, due to the COVID-19 situation, Mohegan Sun and New England AAU Volleyball decided last week not to hold the AAU Volleyball Grand Prix Connecticut scheduled for March 28-29, 2020.
However, we are happy to announce that we have been able to reschedule this event for June 13-14 of this year (2020) and still be able to host at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.
Due to the measures taken by the National AAU, as well as State and Federal government for the safety of all, the 2020 NEAAU Champions League will not be played in April. The remainder of the league season, which was to be played in April, has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Additional updates will be provided when available.
In response to the guidelines set forth in the State of Emergency declaration in Massachusetts in the wake of the Covid-19 situation, the New England AAU Super Regional for March 14-15, 2020 in Springfield, MA has been cancelled. As the situation evolves and more information is released, potential reschedule dates will be considered.
Please be sure to cancel any of your hotel reservations ASAP to ensure you are not penalized for cancelling.
