2020 Club Season Info

As we approach the start of the 2020 Club Season, there is still a lot of unanswered questions. The one thing we do know for sure, is that Aspire is open and ready for business. We have been running open gyms all summer with great success and ZERO transmitions of Covid-19. 

Please click the link below for an informational flyer in regards to the upcoming season. 

Tryouts dates are still TBD, as are tournament dates and out of state travel. Check back often for updates. 

Temporary COVID-19 Protocols

 

In order to comply with the City of Tempe Mandatory Facemask proclamation, please read below:

  • Aspire will follow the mandatory facemask policy until further notice.
  • All persons entering Aspire will need to be wearing a facemask - this includes Coaches, Staff, Parents and Players
  • Once engaging in practice or competition ON THE COURT, players can decide whether they want to keep a facemask on or remove it.  If they remove their facemask, they must put it back on before leaving their court.  If they are in a tournament as the ref team, they must wear their facemask.
  • Coaches will be expected to wear a facemask during practice and matches.

Anyone interested in playing some volleyball is welcome as long as they have a waiver! That includes all Aspire athletes, player from other clubs and Aspire alumni.

There are strict policies in place currently at Aspire in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please read carefully the following policies and be prepared when you enter the gym.

1. On the Aspire home page, you will find a link for a waiver form. You must bring that signed by a parent the first time entering our gym this summer.

2. On the home page, you will also see a link to the procedures we have put in place to keep athletes safe. Read those, and familiarize yourself with the plan. Here are some important highlights.

USAV Membership

All Players MUST BE REGISTERED with USA Volleyball prior to participation in any Aspire USAV sanctioned practice - this includes Open Gyms, Team Selections, and practices.  Because we are at the end of the 2018 season and the start of the 2019 season, there are some special considerations in regards to USAV Membership.

RETURNING PLAYERS:  Any player that participated in club volleyball during the 2018-19 season or during the summer competition is considered current and may participate under their current 2018 membership.  We cannot renew membership until September 1, 2019.

NEW CLUB PLAYERS:  Any player that did not participate in club volleyball during the 2018-19 season will need to apply for a USAV membership with the Arizona Region - use the Summer Fee ($15) for the partial membership.

ALL PLAYERS (AFTER TEAM SELECTIONS):  The new club season (2019) begins September 1, 2019 - this is when players can apply for a new 2019 USAV membership ($55).  Once Team Selections have concluded and players commit to Aspire, all players must renew/apply before September 10, 2019.
