2018 DELTA REGION CALENDAR OF EVENTS This is a preliminary schedule as of 11-09-2017. Please review schedule for updates prior to entering events.
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 definition 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 POLICY: The Delta Region grants waivers to allow players to play with their classmates when they just miss the September 1 birthday cut-off. Waivers are not granted for developmental purposes. The team roster will reflect any/all players that have been granted a waiver to play down one age division with a “W” beside the player’s name. For additional information regarding age waivers consult the Delta Region Member Handbook.
