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.
GAME DAY ATTENDANCE: PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament no later than Thursday of the tournament week. Late withdrawals and "No-Show" teams may be assessed a fine which is payable prior to the next tournament. Teams that 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.
Teams traveling to out-of-state qualifiers: A coach or other rostered and 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 be the R2 at least one match at every AZ Region tournament to remain proficient for qualifiers.
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 players 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. The Club teams play only within their age groups - 12s, 13/14s, 15/16s.
“Championship” is the AZ Region’s “mid-level” competitive division. Many Championship teams travel, but not all do. These teams want to challenge themselves to play at a higher level of play than the introductory club level. Championship division tourneys also have morning or afternoon pool waves. The Championship Division has blended ages - 13s-16s and 17s-18s.
“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 3 matches in pool play followed by a cross pool match in all day 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.
Follow the region on social media for tournament alerts as soon as they are released.
