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.
In order to comply with the City of Tempe Mandatory Facemask proclamation, please read below:
We are excited to announce our training schedule for the remainder of the summer. Please read carefully all of the information here.
Monday and Thursday nights from 7-9 pm starting Monday June 8 and running weekly until August 13. (subject to change - always refer to website or social media accounts)
Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 7-9 pm starting Tuesday June 9 and running weekly until August 12. (subject to change - always refer to website or social media accounts)
Cost: $5 unless you are currently on the 18 Thor, 17 Iron Man, 16 Spider-Man or 14 Groot roster. Members of those teams are free for the month of June because they have previously paid for summer training.
Who can come? We are currently adhering to strict Social distancing and safety protocols at Aspire, but each night we have four courts available to play. 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. If we get too crowded we may be forced to close the doors, so first come first serve!
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.
3. Your temperature will be taken at the door, if it is high, you will be asked to wait until it has lowered or you will be asked to go home. Please be prepared to follow all of these strict guidelines. And parents are not allowed in the gym at this time.
See you at ASPIRE soon!!!

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.
