We are unable to hold the AAU Grand Prix on May 16-17, 2020, due to the ongoing Covid 19 restrictions in place.

We are hoping to hold the event the weekend of July 25-26, 2020 in Ocean City, Maryland.

As of today, we have confirmed availability at The Roland Powell Convention Center, and Ocean City Parks and Recreation in Ocean City, Maryland. We are negotiating with several additional venues should they be needed.

Of course, our ability to hold the AAU Grand Prix on its rescheduled date will depend on governmental restrictions in effect at that time.

Updates will also be posted here and we will continue to send updates via AES as the situation evolves.

Please check the Beachfest website for more information.

We are making arrangements to reschedule the 2020 AAU Grand Prix on May 16 and 17th at UMES and Worcester County Recreation Center.  Of course this is subject to ongoing government regulations.

After deliberations with the local authorities, we have decided to cancel the 2020 AAU Grand Prix Maryland volleyball tournament due to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

We understand that many of you were looking forward to the event but have concluded that the risk, however small, is not worth the risk.

We are happy to say that we have been hard at work with the local hoteliers and many of them have agreed to waive any cancellation fees for our attendees. Please be aware that we do not have direct control of this process and you should reach out directly to the hotel at which you made reservations.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the members of our volleyball family in these uncertain times.

Thank you so very much for your feedback and patience.

The AAU Grand Prix Maryland is scheduled to continue.  Should anything change, an email will be sent out via Advanced Event Systems to coaches and club directors and an update will be posted here.  We are working closely with city officials to ensure the safety of spectators, participants, and staff.
