Club Unite directors are monitoring updates and receiving information daily on tournament cancellations, potential reschedules, and the possibility of entry fee refunds. We want to ensure the best for our Club Members and are taking every stand possible to take care of financial details. Club Unite has on-going financial needs that exist despite the nations standstill and the Club Unite directors are working daily to balance the immediate needs vs. items that can remain on hold. We can't provide effective answers until we are informed on how everything will play out. Per our initial notice, we will refund tournament entry fees to our members once we receive a refund if, in fact, the tournament cancels vs reschedules.
At this time it is our hope much like the TSSAA, that we will be given the opportunity to compete in future tournaments and get back to normal club functions soon. Obviously this may or may not happen but instead of closing for good, we along with the national volleyball associations are insistent that the show will go on even if it goes deeper into the summer.
All clubs across the country are only up and running because of player dues. We feel certain that Club Unite does not price gauge its customers charging well above and beyond the needs. Whether another tournament is played this year or not, clubs such as ours must pay rent to keep its doors open, and in order for any club to be operational in the present and in the future, it's important as a club that we get through this together. As we have stated before, in previous emails, every 2020 Club Unite senior has signed a scholarship to play collegiately at the next level and perhaps without the availability to play club ball, that opportunity wouldn't have presented itself. Let's hope and pray that our country can heal soon and things get back to our new normal.
We are asking members to assure their club dues are up to date. Your assistance helps us pay for already purchased items. We are blessed to have diligent members who care deeply about the Club Unite programs continuation.
At this time Club Unite will not be sending out our late March invoice. Our Directors will be meeting to discuss a plan for forward movement.
