When you join Delta Region Volleyball, you become a registrant of USA Volleyball. Delta Region Volleyball Association is incorporated as a legal entity and is a Member Organization of USA Volleyball. The Delta Region serves the grassroots function for USA Volleyball and collectively serves as a catalyst for USA Volleyball functions.
The Delta Region is composed of the states of Arkansas, Northern Mississippi and the part of Tennessee west of the Tennessee River. The following Delta Region procedures and rules supplement USA Volleyball rules for the USA Volleyball season (September 1–August 31 following year). Direct any questions or requests for interpretation to Joe Williams, Delta Region Commissioner (email@example.com) or phone: 870-933-8110.
Beginning September 1st of 2020, many regions in USAV - including DELTA- will be moving away from Webpoint and switching to a membership management system (MMS) administered by SportsEngine (SE). This page is being updated with information that you need to know, particularly about major differences between Webpoint and SE. The DELTA staff is in training on the new system right now, and clubs will be contacted over the Summer to get set up.

Go to JOIN NOW section to purchase membership.
The process of purchasing memberships will look a little different this season. To start, go to Delta Region's website and click on the "Membership" link.
You will be asked a series of questions to determine what type of membership is right for you.
When you get to the checkout page, you will see two “transactions” that equal the total membership price. One transaction represents the fees going to Delta Region, and the other represents the fees going to USAV. This is different than in the past. Don't be confused. You'll still be charged the same amount - you're just going to see an itemized breakdown. You may also see two separate charges (totaling the amount of your membership) on a credit card statement.
After a membership is purchased, you will receive an e-mail outlining the additional steps necessary to become eligible to participate. This can include a background screening, SafeSport certification, etc. Your account will also show these steps.
If a family has multiple players, they can all have their membership information in the same master account, using one set of login credentials (called a "family account"). This is different than past seasons. In the old system, all individuals had to have their own login.
When a membership is purchased, you will not have the option of associating yourself with a club.
The club must send you an invitation, and you must accept it, before you will be associated with a club in the system. This process must happen before a player or coach can be placed on a roster. This is different than past seasons.
Previously, you could pick a club during an initial membership purchase. There will be policies in place that prevent clubs from sending invitations to players prior to tryout dates.
Background screenings will be a separate purchase, done after your membership purchase is complete. This is different than past seasons.
You will automatically receive a link via e-mail to purchase a BGS if you need it.
USAV has changed their background screening policy and has increased the cost to members - $30 plus 2.95% service fee for two years, which includes a supplemental screening prior to the second season (this cost is not paid to Delta Region, and Delta Region does not collect any money from background screen charges).
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND SCREENING FEE FOR NON-CITIZENS
International Screens for non-citizens has shifted to a flat rate. Searches for Canada will be at the cost of $75.00 and all other international locations will be $150.00.
If you require SafeSport training, the system will send you a link via e-mail to complete the training. USAV is working on technology that allows the system to know which training is appropriate for you (Core vs. Refresher) and that will automatically load it for you.
A major benefit of this new system will be a greater ability for both clubs and region staff to ensure everybody meets eligibility requirements prior to being put on a roster. This process will be smoother for all involved.
It is our understanding that juniors who are 18, or who will turn 18 during the season, will be able to select a membership that automatically enrolls them in SafeSport.
Much of your old data from Webpoint will be migrated over to the new SportsEngine MMS. When purchasing a membership, the system will look to match your name, date of birth, and zip code with a membership record from Webpoint and if a match is found, data migration will happen automatically.
The Delta Region will also back up data from Webpoint (such as roster information, team selections, etc.) and keep it on file in a secure location.

Effective with the 2020-2021 Delta Region Season, refunds will not be issued for an individual’s registration fee ($52 girls/adults; $27 boys/referees; or the $10 tryout fee).
If you are new to Junior Volleyball or you are not sure you want to play this season, the Delta Region now offers a $10 tryout fee which is more cost-effective. If you are chosen for a team the $10 will be taken off the total cost of a ‘Regular Junior Membership’.
Finding the right club for your son or daughter can be a daunting task. If you are new to club volleyball you will want to find out as much information as you can about the clubs in your area before you accept an invite from any club.
Once a player accepts an invite to a club, the club will then be able to put that player on the roster of a team. The player is then officially committed to that club for the entire season. In addition, once an athlete has participated in a regional or national qualifying bid event, athlete transfers/releases are bound by the transfer/release rules of the Girls’ Junior National Qualifier/Spring Championships, Championships or the Boys’ Junior National Bid/Championships manuals.
