JVA CANCELS WEST COAST UP
On May 4th, The JVA has announced the cancellation of the West Coast Cup via the JVA webpage and social media accounts, originally scheduled for May 23-25 in Long Beach, California. Below is a segment of the announcement:
We hope that during these extremely difficult and strenuous times, you, your staff and your families are safe and healthy. We were hopeful that we would be in a position by this time to be able to host the JVA West Coast Cup. We know many clubs were depending on this event to be able to end their season with this tournament or to help prepare their teams for the various national championships.
Based on the current guidelines, both nationally and locally in California, it will not be possible to host a large event in the convention center, so we have decided to cancel the 2020 JVA West Coast Cup. In discussions with our staff, our board and member clubs, we feel this decision is best for the safety of your staff, your athletes, their families and the community of Long Beach.
Below are the remaining JVA events that have are still scheduled or have been rescheduled.
