"We're thankful to the multiple universities that submitted proposals to host their respective division of the tournaments," Paradise Jam tournament director Jenn Ashby said. "Our decision was ultimately made based off of feasibility for traveling teams, hotel availability, flight availability, associated costs, and practice and competition venues. We're incredibly thankful to all of the participating teams for their willingness to make adjustments during a difficult time. We're looking forward to hosting an event that matches the standard we have come to expect in the U.S. Virgin Islands and look forward to returning to the territory next year."
The tournaments, which have been held in St. Thomas for the last 17 years, were forced to relocate to due damage caused by the hurricanes in September. The infrastructure damage caused at the University of the Virgin Islands did not allow for the events to be hosted in the territory.
