Arizona Region of USA Volleyball

Joining the Arizona Region of USA Volleyball


The Arizona Region uses the USA Volleyball online registration system WebPoint. The system is live for registration or renewal for the new season on Sept 1st of each year.

WebPoint requires each member to register themselves online. Payment may be made online with a credit card or you may send in your payment to the Arizona Region to be processed. All members will be required to register prior to the tryout time period. Proof of current registration will be required at all club tryouts. The online system requires electronic signatures for the waiver and release of liability and the code of conduct. No one is legally allowed to do this for someone else. The online signatures requires a driver's license number or last 4 digits of SSN as verification of who electronically signed the forms.

Anyone that was previously registered in the Arizona Region or another USA Volleyball Region should already be in the WebPoint system - however the information may need to be checked for accuracy and there could possibly be more than one record in the system. The record will need to be found to be renewed. A login and password will be established with the record already in WebPoint and issued to the applicant via email.

If your membership is in another Region and you have moved to Arizona DO NOT renew the membership in the other Region until it has been moved to Arizona Region. Call the AZ Region office to move your memberhship BEFORE renewing it for the new season - 480-626-6740 or email office@azregionvolleyball.org.

The Arizona Region annual membership season runs from September 1 to August 31 - even though in WebPoint it says the membership is good to Oct 31. Each member must renew their membership after Sept 1st to tryout, attend clinics or participate with a club for the new season. The Arizona Region starts the new season on September 1st with our boys programs. We can not run two different year memberships in the same season. Any girls clinics or registration for tryouts that takes place after Sept 1st must be for the new season.

Joining a Club

Attend tryouts of the club(s) you are interested in participating with for the season. Once you have made a team and committed to the club by signing a contract or paying any fees, you are considered committed to the club for the entire season. Once you have committed to a club you are no longer eligible to tryout at other clubs nor are other clubs allowed to recruit you to come to their club.

The arrangement between a club and a player is just that - a business association between two parties. The Arizona Region is not a part of that business association. Any financial commitments or obligations between the club and the player are between the club and the player. If their is a dispute it needs to be handled like any other business deal - between the two parties involved.

New for 2015 is monetary and penalty sanctions against a player and/or a club for players signing more than one club contract or commiting to more than one club in the same season. Please make sure you do your homework before signing any club contract or paying any commitment fees to the club.

The Arizona Region and USA Volleybal considers a commitment to a club to be for the entire season. It is not a common practice to change clubs during the season as budgets and team fees are built around the players committed to the club. Please realize that your commitment to a club is critical to the other team members as well as to the club.

If your club is paying for the background screen and membership they must notify the AZ Region of the names of the individuals they are paying for. If the club does not identfy the coach or chaperone as part of their club the background screen will not be submitted until payment has been made to the AZ Region.

Players may always "play up" (on a team in an age category that is older than the player's age category) but are not able to "play down" (on a team that is younger than the player's age category). An Age Waiver may be applied for under specific conditions and only for play on a Club Division or non-traveling teams. There is a maximum of two age waivers allowed on any one team. Age Waivers are not accepted for teams participating in the Open or Championship Divisions on teams that are planning to travel to interregional tournaments or Junior National Qualifying or Championship Events. Age waivers are typically for players born in the summer months and in the grade below that which is normally associated with their age category. An Age Waiver must be submitted and approved before the player is allowed to be placed on the younger age team.
  • The Junior member should be asked to provide proof of membership, proof of birth date and a completed medical release form at tryouts.
  • At the time the player joins a club for the season a copy of the player's birth certificate (or other legal document displaying date of birth - i.e. passport, school records, adoption papers) must be submitted to the club if one is not already on file with the Arizona Region. The club will submit the birth certificate to the Region for any new members.

  • 8 and Under membership is Free ($0). This membership is for those 8 and under participating in youth programming (examples of youth programming would be First Touch programs, Hot Ta-Volleys, etc).
