We had a few shining examples of teams/coaches stepping up to make the tournament experience better for all!
Thank you to SAVA 14 Orange! They covered 2 courts in Club 14AA Division during their time off to get the tournament back on schedule.
Thank you to EVJ 14R2 Gilbert and Avalanche 13 White! They also assisted in reffing when it was not their time to ref. Very appreciated!
Verrado HS - All 16 teams were great (entire field in 13 Championship Division). They were respectful and cleaned up after themselves. Very appreciated!
Thank you to Altitude 14s! They helped ref a 2nd court to help with time.
Thank you to Club Nexus 14 Green! They reffed 2 courts to help with time.
Thank you to MVC 13 Fusion! They volunteered after their last PM wave match to cover 2 courts in Club 14 Division 12 so two Southern Arizona teams could leave. The Momentum Volleyball Club parents chipped in as well to help clean up the team camp areas, cafeteria, and even some of the stuff in the gym while they were waiting. We appreciate their willingness to stay and sacrifice their 1st opportunity in 4 tournaments to leave early (previous 3 required them to travel out of town)!
Thank you to KCVA 14 Red who stayed after their pool finished to ref the last 2 matches on 2 courts in Club 16 D2Pool 7. We appreciate not only their willingness to step up, but their enthusiasm in performing the work team responsibilities!
Thank you to East Valley Juniors 18N Rycki and Aspire 18 Royal, who covered the ref assignment for LV Impact 18s so they could get on the road home.
Thank you to Victory 15s, who stayed and helped pick up the gym after their last match; they were not the host team.
