|OCCC to Host USA Volleyball through 2025 USA Volleyball has announced that Orlando will host its Sunshine Classic Girls Qualifier through 2025. The event will be held annually at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), with the 2022 edition scheduled for April 1‐3. “We value our longtime partnership with USA Volleyball, and we thank them for their continued confidence in the Center of Hospitality,” said OCCC Executive Director Mark Tester. “We look forward to the prospect of working with USA Volleyball and the Sunshine Qualifier.” The Sunshine Classic is one of 12 qualifiers that feed into the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championship. Qualifying season for the 2022 national championship in Indianapolis (June 23‐July 4) begins March 5‐7 at the Salt Lake City Showdown.
|USA Volleyball has also selected Orlando, Fla., to host the 2022 USA Volleyball Open National Championship, from May 27‐June 1, 2022. The event was last held in Orlando in 2016 with a record number of 578 teams in attendance. USA Volleyball also operates the Sunshine Classic Girls Junior National Qualifier annually in Orlando in early spring. The OCCC, along with the destination, continue to provide a wonderful and safe experience for their athletes, officials, coaches and fans, and look forward to providing the best that volleyball has to offer.
|In line with its three‐pronged recovery strategy, the OCCC earned its Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR reaccreditation earlier this year. As the first convention center globally to be reaccredited after a successful year of hosting in‐person events, this highly esteemed certification provides third‐ party validation for the safety practices employed at the Center. Through its dedication to upholding GBAC STAR infection prevention protocols, as well as its Recovery and Resiliency Guidelines in cooperation with the Florida Department of Health, and its pioneering collaboration with Orlando Health®, the OCCC hosted more than 100 live events since the onset of the COVID‐19 pandemic.
