Coaches: You are required to check in by 7:30AM (AM Wave) or 2:30PM (PM Wave), regardless of the time of your first match.
With teams dropping out of tournaments at the last minute due to COVID-19, the format of your pool and the times of your matches could change the day of the tournament.
All teams are expected to be ready to play or officiate the first match of the wave.
Beyond these potential issues, the penalty for not checking in by the required time is 8 points on your first set.
Coaches Meeting: 7:30 am START Time (AM Wave), 2:30 pm (PM Wave)
Tournament START Time: 8 am (AM Wave) and 3 pm (PM Wave)
SPECTATORS: Spectators are not restricted.
MASKS: Spectators are encouraged to wear masks when inside the facilities when flu and COVID infections are running high. Where social distancing cannot happen, all should wear a mask. Reminder it is up to each individual to take care of their own health and do what is need to maintain their health - no matter what anyone else is doing.
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. We need to help out the site directors and take our own trash home.
Reminder: Coaches, 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.
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.
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.
Please pack up your trash and take it home for disposal.
Please recycle your plastic water bottles and remember your water bottles.
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.
