Club #6 - 4/13/19

Important Information About Team Camps

Sites will document any issues with excessive trash left behind at team camps and/or team benches, indicating the club/team responsible, if known.  Even if the specific irresponsible club/team is unidentified, the Region will still follow up with all clubs present that wave to make directors aware of this unacceptable situation.  As always, ALCOHOL IS PROHIBITED AT ALL AZ REGION EVENTS!  While many teams setup team camps as an opportunity for the teams to gather and bond during their breaks from play, several groups are abusing this privilege with the false notion that sites are required to provide space and clean up all their trash.  Team camps are a privilege, not a right.  We recommend the same approach as if camping in the wilderness: pack out what you pack in (i.e. bring trash bags and take the full bags with you when leaving).  Sites should not have to clean anything up outside (and minimally inside). If abuse of this privilege continues, future restrictions may be warranted (possibly including, but not limited to, fines and/or elimination of all team camps).

Non-Seeding Championship/Club Tournament Format

  • Coaches Meeting: 7:30 am START Time (AM Wave) or 2:30 pm START Time (PM Wave)
  • Tournament START Time:  8 am or 3 pm
  • Check-in should be completed at the tournament desk prior to the Coach's meeting. A picture ID for each coach on the roster is required along with a medical release form for each player on the roster. A current WebPoint roster is required to be signed and turned into the site director for use at the tournament. There is an 8 point penalty to the team's first match if the coach is not checked in BEFORE the Coach's Meetings AND if the coach does not attend the Coach's meeting.
  • Rosters are required to have correct jersey numbers. The rosters will be checked off by the site director at check in. At this point, team registration forms, hand written rosters and write-ins will not be allowed.
  • Format - Teams are straight seeded into divisions of 6-8 teams. Teams will play standard region bracket formats. Following this tournament 3 teams will move up and 3 teams will move down a division for the next tournament play (unless the next tournament is the Region Championship). Match play is best 2 of 3 sets to 25, 3rd set to 15, if needed.

Important Tournament Information - Please Read!

  • Any 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.  It is strongly recommended (although not required) that a rostered adult R2 at least one match at every AZ Region tournament to remain proficient for qualifiers.
     
  • PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament PRIOR to Saturday. There is a $100 fine for teams that "no-show". The point is that it creates a big problem if there is a team that does not show.
     
  • 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.
     
  • Purple Card policy will be in effect.
     
  • Coaches you must be available during ref assignments to help with scorekeeping and officiating.  You are also responsible for your parent's behavior and "team camp" area clean up.
     
  • Let us be reminded that 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. That means keep your coffee, food and coolers outside, NO COOKING OF ANY KIND (includes crockpots, hotplates, sterno heated chafing dishes, barbeques, anything that produces heat, etc) on the premesis, pick up all the trash around your bench area and your "camp" area, NO ALCOHOL on site, and park in designated parking spaces only. Treat all facility personnel as if they have the authority to ask you to move your stuff because they do. Thanks for your help in making this a very successful season.

Parents: Please make a special effort to keep food and drink out of our facilities. We must also make sure to clean up after ourselves. This is THE major source of the 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 gym!

( ) around a team name indicates that we know that team is not playing in this tournament.
