COVID-19 : Important information for Nationals participants

Volleyball Canada is following the updates on the COVID-19 virus very closely.

As of March 09, 2020, the risk to people in Canada is still low (according to the Government of Canada), and no change in the Nationals' schedule or location is currently planned. As the situation is changing rapidly, we will notify participants directly of any change in plans.

We are following the lead of the local health authorities, and suggest participants consult their local health authorities for suggested precautions and best practices.

Volleyball Canada is also considering the following strategies for Nationals:

-Removing the current handshake protocol
-Cleaning and replacing balls after every match
-Working closely with the venue in Edmonton to review cleaning protocols.
