Don't jeopardize your high school volleyball career.

Has a friend asked you to fill in for them on a volleyball league? Does your club have open gyms during high school season?

Just participating in these events could, potentially, ruin your high school volleyball experience.

CLUB VOLLEYBALL & HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL SEASONS

This is a friendly reminder for club directors and coaches to share with high school athletes.

The AIA or Arizona Interscholastic Association - which oversees high school sports in the State of Arizona - outline very specific rules about nonschool participation in volleyball. Again, while the AZ Region is not affiliated with AIA, we do feel it’s important all athletes are aware of the rules.

AIA - General Provisions 2021-2022
Article #14.4.1 - Nonschool Participation
READ: www.aiaonline.org/files/64/article-14-general-provisions.pdf

“A student who is a member or becomes a member of a school team shall not practice, have practiced or compete with any other group, club, organization, association, etc., in that sport during the interscholastic  season of competition.

“Any student violating the above rule shall forfeit his/her eligibility for a  minimum of the balance of the season for that sport or up to a maximum of one calendar year.”
