All high school volleyball athletes and all clubs and their coaches should be aware of the upcoming “Quiet Period.”
AZ Region Policies Manual, Chapter V – Junior Division Policies
E. Quiet Period
A Quiet Period for recruiting junior girls playing in the high school state tournament has been established to allow the players and coaches involved to focus on their high school tournament and not be distracted by club recruiting. The Quiet Period will run from the last day of the AIA regular school season each year until the time the player’s team has been eliminated from the High School State Championships tournament.
No one may contact a player on a high school team still involved in the AIA High School state tournament, or the parents/family members of the player, regarding club tryouts or participation. High school coaches who are affiliated with a junior club and whose high school teams are still involved in the state playoffs may not discuss any club participation with their players from the start of the Quiet Period until their team is no longer participating in the tournament.
Quiet Period: October 27 - November 13, 2021
This year, the Quiet Period begins on October 27th and ends on November 13th or whenever the player’s team has been eliminated from the State High School Playoffs – whichever comes first.
No club may hold tryouts or ask players to commit to their club before the designated tryout dates or they - the club, coach and/or player involved - may be subject to sanction which includes but is not limited to suspension for the year.
IMPORTANT - Private lessons are restricted during the Open House period for each applicable age group. No private lessons may be held for a player in the age group of the Open House period in effect. Any coach found in violation will result in the affiliated club being fined $300 per person per event.
