The Arizona Region and USA Volleyball consider a commitment to a club to be for
the entire season.
The Arizona Region considers a player committed to a junior club when a
player or his/her parent signs a club contract and/or pays the initial club fees
to its club director or one of its coaches with the intent of joining the club for
the current season.
Players who have committed to a club and then wish to transfer to another
club must first request to be released from the club to which they first
committed and the release must be verified and approved by the Arizona
Region Commissioner before they may begin to practice or play with the club
to which they wish to transfer. See Player Release Policy below for further
information on changing clubs in the same season.
All players are released from their club association within the Arizona Region
per USA Volleyball the day following the completion of their respective Junior
National Championships – regardless of whether or not they are attending the
Junior National Championships.
