10:00AM-2:00PM on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at the Phoenix Convention Center.  If you will not be able to arrive before Wednesday at 2:00 PM, please inform Gloria, so that other check-in arrangements can be made.


Full-time Officials living more than 30 miles from the Phoenix Convention Center are housed at the Hyatt Regency Downtown, two officials to a room.  Please select another official to room with and make note of that on your Personal Data/Housing Form.  Housing is provided with a check-in of Wednesday, June 25 and check-out of Monday, July 1.  Anyone not staying that entire time should contact Gloria so that we do not pay for rooms that are not occupied.


Parking is expensive in the downtown area but the Festival has a limited number of parking passes for out of town officials.  The driver of a car must indicate the need for a pass on the Personal Data/Housing Form.  Priority will be given to those drivers carpool with other officials.   All local officials should plan to park in the light rail parking lots and take the train to the Convention Center.


Festival Sports provides tournament apparel for both the Festival Fiesta Classic (FFC) in Feb and the Volleyball Festival Championships (VF) in June.  FFC Officials will be provided with a 1/4 zip sweatshirt to be worn on Sat and Sun with solid navy, black or tan pants or shorts. On Monday, your white "officials' shirt" should be worn with navy pants.

VF officials are provided with t-shirts. Bring enough pants or shorts in solid navy, black or tan for the entire week. Bring your own officiating shoes, navy blue pants, the white "officials’ shirt" and white socks for Championship matches. Canadians should bring their national uniform.

Make sure that your sizes are noted on the personal data form. Both FFC and VF are licensed AAU events in 2014 so your USAV patch does not need to be worn on your "officials' shirt."


Officials arriving at the Phoenix Airport should catch the light rail.  Take the Montebello/Westbound train and exit at 3rd St. and Washington for the Hyatt and Convention Center.  Light rail information can be found HERE.


Join us for our annual pizza party on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, at 7:30 PM, to be held in conjunction with the Mandatory Meeting. Failure to attend this meeting could result in removal from Monday’s schedule. 


All Officials are invited to attend the annual Staff Party on Sunday, June 29, 2014 shortly following the conclusion of the last Finals match.


Matches will be played from Thursday, June 26 through Sunday, June 29.   Play should conclude by 9pm Sunday, June 29.
