2018 DELTA REGION CALENDAR OF EVENTS This is a preliminary schedule. Check back for updates prior to entering events.
Indoor Rule Modifications for the Delta Region
Below are rule modifications that have been developed specifically for the Delta Region. Not all regions follow these same rule modifications.
- 12 AND UNDER COMPETITION
Players can use “step-in” (service line is 6’6″ into the court) serving f or Delta Region domestic tournaments. Note: This step-in rule is used by domestic club programs in the Delta Region. Other Regions may not allow the step-in rule; it is the decision of each region. Net height is lowered to (7′).
- BOYS PLAYING IN DELTA REGION GIRL’S EVENTS
Male athletes are eligible to play in domestic Junior Girl’s competition within the Delta Region in the girls 13-12-11-10-9-8 Age Divisions: Note: This age def inition is used by domestic club programs in the Delta Region. Boys or coed teams may participate in the Delta Region Championships but will not be allowed to participate in the Delta Region Bid Qualifier. Other Regions may not accept these waivers; it is the decision of each region.
- PLAYER UNIFORM WAIVER
The DCR says “the color and design for the jerseys and shorts must be uniform…” which indicates shorts over spandex would not be allowable. However, for play within the Delta Region, the Delta Region Commissioner can grant exceptions to players who, for religious or modesty reasons, wish to cover up. Players that have been granted a Uniform Waiver have been instructed to carry the Delta Region authorization to all Delta Region events for verification. The shorts will need to be the same color as the team’s spandex. Other Regions may not accept these waivers; it is the decision of each region.
- AGE WAIVER
Age waivers are granted to allow athletes to play with their classmates, even if they are slightly older with a birth date that would require them to play with an older age group. If the Club Director requests an age-group waiver, the entire team will be unable to play in nationally-sanctioned events. Age Waivers are only granted to allow players to play with their classmates and not granted for developmental purposes. Age Waiver request can only be made by the Club Director. An Age Waiver Application must be completed by the Club Director and approved by the Delta Region Commissioner. Age-waivered players may not participate in the Delta Region Bid Qualifier, any National Qualifier or the Junior Girl’s National Championships unless the player plays with her age-appropriate team. Other regions MAY choose to allow the participation of age waived players–some may not. Contact the individual Tournament Director to check on the eligibility of waived players within the region you will be playing. If an outside region does not accept waived players then said player may not participate in sanctioned tournaments within that region unless the player plays with her age appropriate team as directed by the USAV Age Definitions.
