Youth sports organizers are faced with the question of when to return to play as parts of the country begin to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. Volleyball club directors were mixed on whether to go to a national tournament in Florida that was eventually postponed. They'll face a similar decision for a big event in Dallas.
