In the Arizona Region of USA Volleyball, teams have the option of competing to capture a bid for the national tournament.
Region teams compete in a regular club season. Then they may register to compete in the Arizona Region National Club Qualifier, which you might see as the "AZ NCQ." Teams which win bids at the AZ NCQ then advance to the GJNC or Girls Junior National Championships through USA Volleyball.
Teams may also earn bids for GJNC at tournaments outside of the Arizona Region. To find out more, please visit our AZ NCQ page for details.
