The classification cut-off date of July 1 was reviewed by the USAV Junior Assembly and the USA Regional Volleyball Association Assembly and research justified the new cut-off date of July 1.

The same is true for 13s and 12s with their respective birthdates and grades.

Email Offer-48 Hour Rule

The clarification of this rule is below.
The Junior Girls Operating Code, Section 3.4,

Subsection 9 states: “d. Once a Club (through a player’s parent) offers a player a position on a team roster, the offer must remain open, without changes in conditions, for a minimum of 48 hours for Junior Girls and a minimum of 96 hours for Junior Boys from the date/time of the offer as time stamped on the e-mailed offer unless the offer is declined, in writing, prior to the expiration of the offer period.

accepted, in writing, it is binding to that club unless the player is released in accordance with provisions
of the relevant governing documents. Binding offers cannot be made to any player until 7 pm the Wednesday after Tryouts for the Junior Girls OR after the start of the tryout period for Junior Boys. All written correspondence must be submitted via email.

Tryout Picture:

With the growing size of our club and the number of athletes who attend each tryout, the coaching staff has decided that it would make team selection easier if we have pictures and video to refer to. Head shot pictures will be taken upon arrival at tryouts to be used by the coaches during team selections. Pictures will be deleted after team selections are final. We will also have video of the tryouts that will also be deleted upon team selections are final.
