ARIZONA REGION TEAMS QUALIFIED FOR GIRLS JUNIOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS


Important Tournament Information - Please Read!

  • COVID-19 Restrictions The health and safety of our participants is first and foremost in our minds as we set out on this season. Restrictions will be in place until such time as COVID-19 is no longer in the pandemic stage. These restrictions are to preserve the health and safety of our participants as well as allow the facilities we use to remain open for business. Those violating any of the restrictions will be asked to leave the premises and not return.

SPECTATORS AND WRIST BANDS: Each team is restricted to a maximum of 3 spectators in the building at one time. Coaches and 3 Spectators have wristbands (held by the coach) that must be worn to enter the facility. Only players in uniform, on the roster and in attendance do not need a wristband. Everyone else in attendance that does not have a wristband must remain outside until they are given a wristband to enter.

TEAM CAMPS: Team camp areas should be restricted in size to provide social distancing and allow for the players and coaches to be present in the team camp.

REMINDER FOR TEAM CAMPS:  The AZ Region has a Pack It In, Pack It Out policy.  All team camps should be cleaned up at the end of the day and the trash from each team camp should be taken home to dispose of.  Especially in this time of COVID, we need to help out the site directors and take our own trash home.

MASKS: Everyone who comes into the gym must wear a mask over their nose and mouth at all times .  This includes the players actively playing on the court.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS: Coaches are required to record the temperature of each person on the roster and who is present on game day. The temperature recordings are to be turned in at check-in.  

  • Spectators will be required to have their temperature taken - and name and contact info taken - for contract tracing purposes. The names of the spectators for the day will be written on the roster and checked at the door.

ReminderCoaches, you are responsible for bringing your 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.

Tournament Format and  Coaches' Meetings

GAME DAY ATTENDANCE: PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament PRIOR to Saturday."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 reinstituted at our tournaments. All teams must be checked in with the site director prior to the Coaches' meetings or they can be considered late and assessed an 8 point penalty on their first match OR they may be formatted out of the tournament to allow for an on-time start of the wave.  
  • Coaches - please have your teams on site and ready to play at the start time even if they are to referee first round.  A "no-show" at start time will change the division format immediately.  Everyone needs to be ready to play.
  • For teams whose coaches have not checked in at least 1/2 hour before the 1st match of the wave will receive an 8 point penalty in their first match of the day.  It is important for the flow of the tournament for all teams to be checked in and ready to play the first match of the wave.
  • Coaches you must be available during ref assignments to help with scorekeeping and officiating.

 

PURPLE CARD POLICY

  • Purple Card Policy is in effect.
    • COACHES: You are responsible for your parent's behavior.

TEAM CAMPS

  • COACHES: You are responsible for your team camp are cleanup.
  • Trash and failure to follow facility rules are THE major sources of reluctance of athletic directors to let us use gyms. We need to do a much better job keeping food and drink, (including coffee and coolers), out of the gyms and taking our trash home!
  • Gym facilities are one of the most difficult parts of putting together a successful season. To that end, we MUST treat them with the utmost respect. Treat all facility personnel as if they have the authority to ask you to move your stuff because they do.

Keep your coffee, food and coolers outside.

NO COOKING OF ANY KIND This includes crock pots, hotplates, Sterno heated chafing dishes, barbeques, and anything which produces heat, etc., on the premises

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.
Any participant and/or spectator found with food/beverages (except for water in closed containers) in the gym will incur a 13 point penalty for their team in their next match

A report will be filed with the AZ Region Office.

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.

Trash bags

Please pack up your trash and take it home for disposal.


Water bottles on floor behind athletes' feet

Please recycle your plastic water bottles and remember your water bottles.

PARKING POLICY

Friendly Reminder

City police departments enforce parking restrictions at many of the playing sites.

Please park legally each day - especially on Mondays - as many businesses in the surrounding areas are open for business.

Thank YOU for your help in making this a very successful season.


TEAM REFFING AT OUT-OF-STATE TOURNAMENTS

Teams traveling to out-of-state qualifiers: A coach or other rostered, certified adult is required to ref as an R2 for every match when assigned as the "work team" at National Qualifier tournaments.

THE 3 COMPETITIVE DIVISIONS OF CLUB VOLLEYBALL FOR GIRLS

Q: What's the difference between Club, Championship, and Open divisions?

A: The Arizona Region offers three levels of volleyball for girls. The purpose is to provide volleyball opportunities for children at a variety of levels and ages.

The “Club” division is for athletes with little to no volleyball experience. It is for the 12 and under (12U) age groups as well as new/developmental athletes in the 13-16 and under (13U-16U) age groups. Club teams typically do not travel out of state. Since Club division is the only option for 12U teams, the higher level teams may travel to out of state tournaments. On tournament days, club level teams play in a morning pool or an afternoon pool. A girls' schedule of game days is posted on our region website and will be given to you by your club coach for advance planning.

Championship” is the region’s “mid-level” competitive division. Some Championship teams travel, but not a lot. These teams want more tournaments in-state at a higher level of play than the introductory club level. Championship division tourneys also have morning or afternoon pool waves. You typically know what time and where you’ll play the Thursday prior to your matches. Follow the region on social media for tournament alerts as soon as they are released.

Open” division is the highest level of club volleyball the region. Open has fewer scheduled days for tournaments by design so the elite teams can travel to more National Qualifiers held out of state. Except for the Seeding Tournament and the Region Championships tournament, the Open teams will play 2 matches with a cross pool match in an AM or PM wave format.  Remember, Club and Championship teams just play their bracket pool play in either the morning or the afternoon on a Saturday. Open tourneys are played on Sundays.
