Junior Boys Tryout Info

Boys Tryout information for the 2016-2017 season will be posted as it is received. The Arizona Region posts these tryouts for your information only. Please contact the club directly for more information as we don't have the specifics.

The 2016-2017 Junior Boys tryouts may be held on or after the 3rd Saturday in August. This year that is August 20. No tryouts are permitted before that date. Boys that were not registered for the 2016 season will have to join the AZ Region for the month of August and then renew after Sept 1st and before Sept 15th for the 2017 season. Boys that were registered for the just ended 2016 season must renew after Sept 1st but before Sept 15th to be put on a roster for the 2017 season. If the tryouts or practices don't begin until after Sept 1st, please wait until after Sept 1st to register.

NOTE for next spring - Boys are considered committed to the club they sign with in the fall until after the last day of the Boys Jr National Championships each year. To play with another club in the spring or summer they must get released from their first club first.

Concussion Education

With the blessing of the NFL the state of Arizona passed concussion legislation that was signed into law April 2011. As a result all athletes and their parents must be educated in the signs, symptoms and what to do if you have a concussion. Coaches must also be trained regarding the same. In order to use school facilities for our programs and our tournaments we must comply with this new law. As a result the Arizona Region requires that each parent and player read their respective CDC Fact Sheet on Concussions and sign an Acknowledgement Form indiciating they understand the signs, symptoms and what to do if they think they have a concussion. The Acknowledgement form is to be turned in to the club with registration materials. No player will be put on a roster until this form has been received each season.

Athlete Fact Sheet 7.16 Parent Fact Sheet 7.16 Concussion Acknowledgement Form 7.16

SafeSport Education

The Arizona Region in conjunction with the US Olympic Committee and USA Volleyball have launched their SafeSport Programs. The USOC has mandated that all National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of Sport launch a SafeSport Program with the goal to stop abuse in sport. There are 6 components of the SafeSport Program - Bullying, Hazing, Harrassment, Sexual Misconduct, Emotional Misconduct and Physical Misconduct. The Arizona Region first start is to define these 6 compenents as defined in the SafeSport Program. There is a form (Page 3 of the document) that is to be signed by the parent after discussing the 6 components of SafeSport with their child that is applying for membership in the Arizona Region. This form is now a requirement for membership along with the Concussion Acknowledgement Form and a birth certificate on file.
