Delta Region Volleyball

22 - 23 Delta Region - Club Application

Welcome

CLUB SANCTIONING APPLICATION

Thank you for reaching out to start a new Delta Region Club program. When starting a club, please considering both male and female players in this process. You will want to read "Starting a Volleyball Program Guidebook" and the Delta Region Member Handbook prior to organizing your club. Note that this guidebook is simply a short collection of information to help get you started and can be found on the Delta Region website. For additional information and assistance with registration or forming your program, please contact the Delta Region Volleyball office and make sure to browse the USA Volleyball website: www.usavolleyball.org.   

 

Starting a  Volleyball Program can be both a rewarding and a frustrating experience. The sources of the rewards are rather apparent – the opportunity to see people grow and develop, the excitement of athletic competition, and the joy of a job well done. The challenges, on the other hand, can mostly be avoided by careful preseason planning which must then be carried out throughout the entire year. The majority of the frustrations arise not out of the players or the coaches, but the administrative details.

 

This club application process will allow you to submit your club information to be considered for sanctioning. Before submitting the club application you must be a current regular USA Volleyball member, passed a background screening, take SafeSport training and agree to all USA Volleyball safety requirements.  

 

The club application must be approved prior to holding any tryouts or practices.
