2023-24 NOTES AND TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL SEASON

Tournament Related Policies

 
Please be mindful of our "Pack It In, Pack It Out" policy. Review it here. Everything brought to a tournament is to be taken home to be disposed, recycled or reused. Bring your own trash bags to make this more convenient for your team camp.
 
No Food or Drink in the gyms. Water in a closed-top container only is allowed in any of our gyms. No exceptions.
 
Electronics Policy - Electronics are NOT allowed at the score table or on the person of the line judges or officials. Penalty points will be issued if the team does not take this seriously.
 
Coaches meetings - Coaches are to be checked in prior to the Coach's meetings. The meetings are held 1/2 hour prior to the first match time. All coaches should be checked in and attend the Coach's meetings to avoid being penalized for being late and delaying the start of the day. This includes coaches whose teams do not play or ref the first round..
 
Officials - We have many new officials and young officials. Please help your parents and coaches understand WE NEED our officials. They should not be yelled at, abused, harassed, followed, etc. This includes the girls on the corners as line judges and the table keeping score. No one should be harassed or abused to work in youth sports.
 
In the event that we are short officials at a facility, the coach or other adult trained for the team will be required to R1 during the team's ref assignment. The club will be credited $24 for each match that the team had to provide the R1. If the coach is also a registered official, the coach will be paid through Arbiter if they have officiated. If they are not in Arbiter, the team will be paid.

In the Arizona Region of USA Volleyball, teams have the option of competing in the AZ Region National Club Qualifier. Top teams capture bids to compete at the Girls Junior National Championships.

PROGRESSION OF PLAY THROUGHOUT THE SEASON

SAFETY AND HEALTH IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

The coronavirus is still giving us trouble. Therefore, it is up to each individual to take the precautions in order to keep themselves from getting sick. Vaccinations are readily available, but they don't give absolute immunity to contracting the virus.
The crowds have returned to our facilities. There is not a lot of room to spare between individuals. It is recommended - but not required - for spectators to wear masks in the facilities when social distancing cannot happen. The players and those on the court will not be required to wear masks.
 
Please be mindful of those around you. Stay home if not feeling well or are visibly sick. We don't want to spread any illness. The health and safety of our players, coaches, officials, staff and spectators is of primary concern whenever we run a tournament.
 
Stay Healthy, Everyone!´╗┐

2022 PLAY VOLLEYBALL PROTOCOL

Please review our Play Volleyball Protocol prior to your scheduled tournament.

 

Stay healthy and have fun!
