All Palmetto Region Tournaments are still being held

The Palmetto Region's primary concern is to be safe and keep the well being of our members as priority.  As of 3/12/20, all tournaments are still on schedule.

An important message about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how Palmetto Region Volleyball is addressing the current situation. 

USA Volleyball announced Wednesday, a recommendation to not hold events for the near future.  This is a national recommendation.  

The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control has created a web page with additional information about COVID-19 and its effects in South Carolina. As of a few days ago, there was 7 confirmed cases in SC. Nationally, as you have heard, the primary risk is to our ederaily and people who are in poor health.

We are following decisions by the local schools districts (not colleges).  They are staying on top of local- South Carolina circumstances.   

The region will monitor daily and make decisions on each weeks events no later than Monday prior to the event.  We encourage each family to make decisions based on your family's circumstances and concerns. Please keep your club coach and director information should you decide not to attend a scheduled event. 

For now, tournaments will be held until further notice.  Individuals families, teams and clubs need to determine what is best for them.  We only ask you notify your team/club within within 5 days before (this weekend by tonight), if you plan not to attend.  Should we cancel, rescheduling events is not likely.  

We will keep club directors informed, post updates on our website and social media.  Currently, each club/team will need to make decisions if they will attend upcoming events.  

We make the same recommendations as our local school districts: 

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Check out these useful CDC tips about when and how to wash hands: https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue and throw it away after use.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • If your child complains about not feeling well, please check your child’s temperature before sending him/her to school. If your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more before you give him/her Tylenol, Motrin or some other appropriate fever-reducing medication, keep your child at home.  Please remember, too, that your child should be fever-free for 24 hours before he/she returns to school.
