THIS WEEK AT SWI THIRD DEGREE
COVID-19 BRINGS ABRUPT END TO 2020 SEASON
REGIONALS – Today we learned the fate of the remainder of our season when we were notified by our governing body, USAVolleyball – IA that week 3 of the regional championships was cancelled. Weeks One and Two also have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. We are saddened that our club tradition of ending a fun season at the regional championships in Des Moines will not be happening this year. Be sure to cancel your hotel reservations immediately.
RED ROCK RAVE – Late this afternoon the SCVA made the announcement that weeks one and two of this event were cancelled in accordance with the USAV recommendation. The host convention center Mandalay Bay along with the MGM Grand Hotel are currently closed due to the COVID-19. This event is now currently rescheduled for ONE weekend in May which means over 2000 teams must now re-register and vie for about 900 spots in the tourney. We will not be re-entering. MGM has cancelled all reservations for the first two weekends that were made through the KC Housing group that handled the housing however I am recommending that you call the hotel at 855 788-6775 to confirm that your reservations have indeed been cancelled. The airlines all have different cancellation/change policies. Check with your carrier to see what your options are.
IOWA WEST FIELD HOUSE – Our home courts “The Iowa West Field-house” has been closed by the management and will remain closed until further notice.
PICTURES, MERCHANDISE ORDERS, FINAL PAYMENTS and REFUNDS – As soon as we are notified by the Field house that we can get back in we will announce a WED/THURS night when we will be at the Field house for you to stop by and handle the above items. We will also send out FINAL e-mail reminders of any balances due with the options to pay by check via US Mail, Pay by Credit Card via e-mail or pay in person at the Field house on the designated WED/THURS nights. Be advised that failure to clear your balance will affect your eligibility and membership with USA volleyball for the next season.
FINALLY – To our players and families, we appreciate all of you and have enjoyed working with you and getting to know you all better throughout the season. The teams ALL had success, got better each week and won a few tourneys along the way! To our coaches, you are all so talented and amazing. These athletes and their families are lucky to have you and so are we! Thank-you!
