Tournament Cancelled

USA Volleyball is pleased to announce the dates and host cities for its 2005 national championship events.

The USA Open Adult Championships will be held from May 28 – June 4 at the Denver Convention Center in Denver, Colo.

The USA Junior Olympic Girls’ Volleyball Championships will take place June 29 – July 6 at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The USA Junior Olympic Girls’ Invitational Championships will be June 30 – July 3 at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky.

The USA Junior Olympic Boys’ Volleyball Championships will be held from July 6 – 13 at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky.

“We are very excited about holding the adult championships in Denver for the first time and look forward to returning to Salt Lake City and Louisville,” said USA Volleyball’s managing director of events Mike Chandler. “When returning to a city you don’t have to reinvent the wheel so a lot of things fall into place pretty easily.”

We are very enthusiastic about the 2005 host cities,” said Chandler. “We feel that these cities will provide a great atmosphere and experience for our participants and their families.”
