Player Commitment to a Club program
The USAV Alaska Region and USA Volleyball agree that a commitment to a club is for the entire season – this means from the date that a contract is signed by a player and her family and returned to the offering club, until the end of the Girls Junior National Championships. Therefore, any club that attempts to pick up players for a season ending event must first have a release by the player’s current club in order to invite or offer a player committed to another club the opportunity to play with the new club. Players/coaches/club directors/parents of players and anyone else associated with the club should not be recruiting players to play with the team for any season ending event unless players have been released. The requesting club should contact the other club director first.  This includes AAU events.
