DELTA REGION VOLLEYBALL

The Delta Region Volleyball Association is one of the 40 Regional Governing Bodies in the United States for Volleyball. We work with USA Volleyball in implementing volleyballprogramming in our geographic area, which includes the states of Arkansas, northern Mississippi and the part of Tennessee west of the Tennessee River. The Delta Region operates as a non-profit and non-government supported organization and is organized and governed by an elected volunteer board of directors. Our mission is to promote, develop and expand volleyball opportunities for individuals within the region. Our goal is to provide support and resources for players, coaches, officials and club leadership to improve skills and enhance the enjoyment of the game within a safe, positive environment.

DELTA REGION & AVCA TEAM UP

The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has teamed up with the Delta Region of USA Volleyball in order to provide our members with insights to navigate the recruiting process and tips to better the game. 

About the AVCA
The mission of the AVCA is to advance the sport of volleyball with AVCA coaches at the epicenter of leadership, advocacy and professional development. With a membership of almost 7,000 and counting, the AVCA provides a professional network for those individuals and companies dedicated to enhancing and promoting the sport. The AVCA provides education to volleyball coaches, recognition of elite players and coaches, promotion of volleyball competitions throughout the world, and networking opportunities for volleyball products and services providers.

JUNIOR RISING STAR OFFICIALS

• Do you consider yourself one of the best Junior Officials in the Delta Region? • Do you actually look forward to your team’s work assignment at a tournament? • Maybe you would like to work as a paid official when you are old enough? You are exactly the athlete that the Delta Region wants to encourage and recognize! Just like outstanding volleyball players are recognized through the High Performance programs, we want deserving Junior Officials in the Delta Region to receive their own recognition. Through the Delta Region Rising Star Official’s Program, junior players who excel as a Referee, Scorer or Line Judge will be awarded the highest honor for a Junior official; RISING STAR OFFICIAL. Chosen by just a few key officials in the Delta Region, players who receive the honor will be awarded a special lanyard and badge court-side immediately following a match. Only individuals who display strong knowledge of the rules of the game and demonstrate good officiating techniques will be considered for such an honor. The goal of the Delta Region Rising Star Program is to encourage athletes that play the game today to want to become the Officials of Tomorrow!
