2013 TEAM ENTRY FEE
u12 – u18: $1,195 (before March 1, 2013)
The Team Entry Fee consists of just one payment. Registration is not complete, nor can Housing be reserved, until the Team Entry Fee is received. Housing priority is based on when the Team Entry Fee is received. The Festival has a Stay-and-Save policy. Every team must have at least two USAV registered adults with one taking the role of chaperone. All coaches must be USAV IMPACT certified (onsite clinics will be available for $25 on June 22 (5-9pm) & 23 (12:30-4:30pm); for the online webinar schedule click HERE). All payments are non-refundable, non-transferable.
REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT DEADLINE
Registration for 2013 is now open. The Early Registration and Payment deadline is March 1, 2013. After that date, the Team entry fee is $1,295. Registrations are accepted on AES through June 14, 2013. All payments are non-refundable, non-transferable.
All registered teams must submit via email or fax the FESTIVAL WAIVER FORM for all registered Players, Coaches and Chaperones to the Volleyball Festival by May 10, 2013. If registering after this date, the form is due upon registration.
For each Team, submit the FESTIVAL WAIVER FORMS via email (email@example.com) or fax (877-628-2804). Please limit submissions to only one Team per email or fax. If sending via email, scan all required forms to your PC and make sure to rename the file(s) so that it starts with the Team Name you registered with on AES. For example, a good naming convention is: Phoenix Elite 14-1 Waiver Forms.jpg. Preferred file formats are .jpg, .tif, or .pdf.
Players must also have a completed and signed USAV MEDICAL RELEASE FORM to participate. Hard copies of both the FESTIVAL WAIVER FORM and USAV MEDICAL RELEASE FORM must be presented at onsite team registration.
The Team Coach or Chaperone must keep a copy of all paperwork in their possession at all times while at the Volleyball Festival.
