2021-22 Memberships (New & Renewals)

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.

21-22 Tournament Schedule is now posted!

USAV Membership-Path to the Podium

How's Joanie Doing?

June 14 update (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.
