FACILITY AND TEAM CAMP GUIDELINES

SAFETY GUIDELINES TO HELP MITIGATE THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

The health and safety of our participants is always first and foremost in our minds as we provide opportunity to play volleyball. COVID 19 is an infectious disease that will be in our communities for a long time.  There is no way to guarantee that someone will not contract COVID 19 or any other infectious disease at any of our sites.

GOING FORWARD:  Each individual will need to take the precautions that are appropriate for them. Keep in mind that your decisions affect those around you as well. We encourage the use of masks in periods of higher risk, washing your hands often, staying home if you do not feel well or are actively sick and keeping your distance from those around you.   

SPECTATORS: At this time, there are no restrictions on spectators at our tournaments. There will be designated areas for seating. Some facilities may not allow chairs from outside to facilitate better flow in the gym.

TEAM CAMPS: Team camp areas should allow for distancing among those in the team camp. No drinks or food should be shared between non-family members.

All food and drink containers and refuse should be packed up and taken home for disposal.  There should be no trash placed in trash containers and left on site.  

MASKS: Masks are encouraged but not required during the high risk periods.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS: Temperature checks will not be taken at the door.  

TEAM MEDICAL KITSCoaches are responsible for bringing their own team medical kit consisting of medical supplies and ice packs. Sites are not responsible for providing these amenities. Site directors can only call 911 in the event a medical emergency occurs.


TOURNAMENT FORMAT AND COACHES' MEETINGS

GAME DAY ATTENDANCE: PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament a minimum of 48 hours PRIOR to tournament day. "No-Show" teams will be fined $100. Teams who do not show up for tournaments create a big scheduling problem at the site location.

Coaches meetings have been reinstated at all of our tournaments. The coaches meetings will be held 1/2 hour prior to the wave start time. All teams are to be checked in prior to the coaches meetings. Teams that are not checked in PRIOR to the coaches' meetings will be assessed an 8 point penalty in their first match of the day. At check in a signed and dated roster is required to be turned in to the site director and the coach must be in possession of the players' medical release forms. A parent representative is encouraged to attend with the coaches for them to disseminate the info discussed to the other parents in attendance.

Because of the close proximity of coaches/parents at the coaches' meetings, coaches are encouraged to wear a mask to the meeting.
 
Coaches you must be available during ref assignments to help with scorekeeping and officiating.

 

PURPLE CARD POLICY

  • Purple Card Policy is in effect.
    • COACHES: You are responsible for your parent's behavior.

TEAM CAMPS

  • COACHES: You are responsible for your team camp are cleanup.
  • Trash and failure to follow facility rules are THE major sources of reluctance of athletic directors to let us use gyms. We need to do a much better job keeping food and drink, (including coffee and coolers), out of the gyms and taking our trash home!
  • Gym facilities are one of the most difficult parts of putting together a successful season. To that end, we MUST treat them with the utmost respect. Treat all facility personnel as if they have the authority to ask you to move your stuff because they do.

Keep your coffee, food and coolers outside.

NO COOKING OF ANY KIND This includes crock pots, hotplates, Sterno heated chafing dishes, barbeques, and anything which produces heat, etc., on the premises

Pick up all the trash around your bench area and your "camp" area

NO ALCOHOL on site

Please leave your televisions at home. 

PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT!
Due to the amount of trash accumulated and left at tournament locations, the AZ Region has enacted a pack it in/pack it out policy. 

Whatever is brought to a tournament should be packed up and taken home to recycle, reuse, or dispose of at their own residence.

Site directors are spending more and more time cleaning up, facilities are spending more money for additional trash pickup following our events. This policy will help to reduce waste and trash at AZ Region events. In this day and age of "green", let's all do our part!

Food and beverages in the gym policy enforcement.

  • Any participant and/or spectator found with food/beverages (except for water in closed containers) in the gym will incur a 13 point penalty for their team in their next match
  • A report will be filed with the AZ Region Office.

Further violations by the same team will result in a $200 fine for each occurrence. The fine must be paid before the team will be allowed to continue participating.

PACK IT IN. PACK IT OUT.

Trash bags

Please pack up your trash and take it home for disposal.

Water bottles on floor behind athletes' feet

Please recycle your plastic water bottles and remember your water bottles.


PARKING POLICY AT ALL PLAYING SITES

FRIENDLY REMINDER 

City police departments enforce parking restrictions at many of the playing sites. 

Please park legally each day - especially on weekdays - as many businesses in the surrounding areas are open for business.
