North Country Region USA Volleyball serves as the region's foremost volleyball agency for youth, junior, and adult players programs, club directors and coaches development, parents and spectators enjoyment, officials and scorekeepers certification, sitting and sand growth. We serve all and support all. Members rely on the Region's commitment to ensure safe volleyball environments, provide high quality support services, create educational opportunities, host safe and fun volleyball tournaments, and grow every aspect of the sport.
North Country Region Volleyball is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization. As one of 40 regions under the umbrella of USA Volleyball, which is the National Governing Body (NGB) of volleyball in the United States as designated by the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee, North Country Region is the upper Midwest chapter of USA Volleyball: Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
In the unlikely event that an NCR hosted tournament is cancelled, any unrecoverable tournament costs will be subtracted from tournament registration income first, then the remainder will be refunded to PAID "Accepted" and "Waitlisted" teams on a proportional basis.
USA Volleyball is announcing the elimination of sanctions for all USA Volleyball activities (including but not limited to events, practices, team activities, individual training sessions or anything covered by USA Volleyball insurance) through April 15, 2020. USA Volleyball is monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates on a regular basis.
USA Volleyball has been asked by local clubs whether such ban applies to club activities covered under the club’s own (non-USA Volleyball) insurance. In these situations, USA Volleyball strongly encourages all member clubs and coaches to adhere to USA Volleyball’s policies. However, should a club decide to voluntarily disregard those policies and assume all risks associated therewith, we recommend that the club adhere to CDC; local, state and federal guidelines and recommendations when deciding whether or not to host practices or individual training sessions. If a club does host practice or individual training sessions, those activities would be considered a non-sanctioned activity by USA Volleyball and thus NOT covered by USA Volleyball insurance.
The health and welfare of our membership, volleyball families and fellow citizens is our primary concern in all decisions we are making during these uncharted times.
We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and will provide periodic updates as information becomes more apparent. Please refer to https://go.usav.org/healthinfo for the latest updated information.
Effective Immediately - sanctioned North Country Region activities (practices, tournaments, officials training, etc..) are cancelled through March 31.
