The Delta Region is a proud member of USA Volleyball, the National Governing Body for the sport of volleyball.
Take a look at this map from the American Volleyball Coaches Association on the colleges & universities that offer intercollegiate volleyball in & near the Delta Region.
2021-22 Memberships are Now Available!
If you were a member in 2020-21, login to your SportsEngine account to purchase a new membership for $52. It will ask you "Who is the membership for?" so just click on the name of the player (or coach.)
If you are new to USA Volleyball, CLICK HERE to setup a new SportsEngine account and purchase your membership.
TRYOUT memberships are only $10 and valid until 12/31/21. ($10 will be applied toward the $52 full membership price.) This provides sport accident insurance during the tryout. However, you cannot be placed on a team roster until you buy a full membership. HINT: If you are fairly positive you will be placed on a team, buy the full membership and avoid the extra step later. If you don't make a team, you can request a refund (minus the $10 tryout membership) no later than November 15.
How do I upgrade my membership to a season membership now that I made a team?
A: When you receive an offer from a club, you will receive a Sports Engine-generated email inviting you (or your child) to join this organization. You should accept the invitation, at which time the system will prompt you to compete your membership upgrade to a full season junior membership,
Odd thing for 17 year old players: Any junior players who are turning 18 years old by 8/31/2022 will be treated as an 18s player membership and required to complete SafeSport training to become eligible. This will keep them from suddenly being ineligible in the middle of the season. If still a high school junior, she will be able to play 17s.
Adults: Avoid delays! Purchase your 2021-22 membership now & complete your background screening and annual SafeSport training (yes, again...it's important) plus new membership waivers.
PROFESSIONAL OFFICIALS (for pay): Use this link to go straight to the membership registration for officials.
2021-22 COVID POLICY: No membership refunds will be given if a player or team decides not to play due to COVID restrictions. We need to stay financially solid for future seasons.

Thanks to the continued growth of the Delta Region and the expansion of the Girls Junior National Championship, we will be awarding THREE bids to the GJNC in Indianapolis in 2022 in 14s-17s: National, American & Freedom. We have two bids in 13s: National and American. We will award 3 bids in 12s (1 National, 2 American) One bid will be awarded in 11s (there is only one 11s division.) Girls 18s GJNC is in Phoenix April 22-24 and we will award one National and one American bid.
The Division order of strength will be as follows:
Players & Coaches who completed certification in 2020-21 received a 2-year certificate, so will not need to re-certify this season. Professional officials will take annual USAV Academy courses.
Line Judge Certification is no longer required. Members may view the curriculum material but no certification will be awarded.
Coursework will be assigned as members register for the 21-22 season.
Need to take the ref & scorer courses to be certified to help your team officiate and score at tournaments? Click HERE to get started in USAV Academy
When a volleyball club invites members to join and play for their Club, members will receive two emails.
The first is an invitation to join a Club's directory, and the second is an official USA Volleyball club association assignment request. For additional information on how to accept a club invite CLICK HERE.
Thanks to all of you who continue to express their concerns and offer prayers about Joanie's continuing battle with brain cancer (glioblastoma) since July, 2020. After two brain surgeries, she continues to take oral chemo for 5 days monthly and some infusion to help slow recurrence of the tumors. Fatigue remains a constant enemy, but we know this will pass.
We have resolved to trust our faith and not worry about tomorrow. We are enjoying some great days together and appreciate them more than ever. God is in control.
As a result, you don't get the pleasure of dealing with Joanie on your Delta Region matters...and are stuck with me. I'll do my best to follow in her great footsteps of serving the members of our Region. Updates will be posted here during the season.
If Joanie and I can pray for you, drop me an email at the Region office.
If you receive an email like this, please ignore & delete it (from me, your Aunt Edna or anybody else)

A scam bot picked up on any email addresses listed on the Delta Region website, which unfortunately included most tournament & club directors and is sending these fraudulent emails. We are trying to block more of them with more technology. As always, be sure to look at the reply email address and pay attention to the poor grammar in the email.
Existing clubs: No new application is needed for 2021-22. If you have changed club director or address, please login & make those changes to your club profile.
