Blaze Sports & Fitness Covid-19 Update - Tuesday, March 17, 2020 - 4:48 pm CT

Blaze Sports & Fitness will be closed until further notice.

We ask for your continued grace as we work to move forward.

To Our Blaze Sports & Fitness and Wisconsin Blaze family:

In our commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our athletes, coaches, staff, and families, we believe at this time the safest course of action is to CLOSE Blaze Sports & Fitness through March 31.

We acknowledge that this unprecedented situation calls for us to be “part of the solution” to protect the health of our community.

We will be providing online fitness workouts Monday through Saturday on our Blaze Fitness groupies Facebook group - simply send a request to join the group - there is no cost. We will also be posting basketball and volleyball at-home training tips on our Wisconsin Blaze Facebook page to help our athletes stay active during this time.

Please visit www.blaze365.com for more information on our updates regarding COVID-19.

We look forward to re-opening our doors and welcoming all of you back to Blaze Sports & Fitness soon!

I find encouragement at this time in the bible verse that is at the heart of our Blaze organization, "Keep ablaze the gift of God that is in you, for God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love and sound judgement."

2 Timothy 1:6,7  (HCSB)

Our hearts and our prayers are with you.

USA Volleyball has banned all events, including but not limited to tournaments, practices, individual training sessions and anything covered by USA Volleyball insurance through March 31, 2020. Read the full release here: http://badgervolleyball.org/badger-region-covid-19-response/

The third weekend of Badger Region Championships and the Dale Rohde Memorial Tournament scheduled for March 28-29, 2020 are now postponed. The Region has committed to making every effort to reschedule these events, including High Performance tryouts. Information on this will be shared as it becomes available.

Early next week, I will be in contact with individual teams who were slated to wrap up their season during this time to discuss plans moving forward.

Thank you all for your continued patience and understanding as we navigate these ever-changing and uncharted waters. Certainly, this is not the way any of us anticipated or wanted the season to wrap up, but your support has helped make this situation that much easier.
