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 KITS: Coaches 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.
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.

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.
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.
Please pack up your trash and take it home for disposal.
Please recycle your plastic water bottles and remember your water bottles.
The entire parking lot between the AZ Region Facility and Spiral buildings is under construction to create one big lot. This will increase the number of parking spots overall. Construction is due to wrap up in mid-to-late April.
Please communicate with your teams:
During construction, we ask your teams scheduled in either of theses facilities park on the street or in the parking garage across the street. Do not park in other business lots as many of them operate on Saturdays and have told us they will tow volleyball cars. This also includes the Valley Christian lot across from the Spiral building. Do not remove cones to allow for parking in construction areas.
Entrances to both buildings is through the glass doors only. No one is allowed in the construction area for safety reasons.
Players and coaches can carry a non-perishable lunch in their backpacks. It can be brought into the facility IN THEIR BAG. They must go out to the front to eat it but it can be carried in their bag without penalty. If they bring food out of their bags while inside the building, they will be penalized.
PACK IT IN. PACK IT OUT.
Remember, ALL trash must be taken home with you... Pack it in. Pack it out.
NO TEAM CAMPS are possible at these facilities during construction as there’s not enough room to do so.
Thank you for your cooperation during this construction!
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.
