Boy's Junior Nationals Update
“12 Club & 13 Club Divisions
New for 2013, players who meet the age definitions of 12 & under may play in both the 12 Club and 13 Club tournaments at the 2013 USA Volleyball Boys’ Junior National Championships in Reno. What this means is that clubs may potentially send two teams to participate at the BJNC in Reno—the first team will compete in the 12 Club division and consist of players who meet the 12 and under age definition. Then that same team may stay and compete in the 13 Club division. To this “13s” team, the club may add players who meet the age definition of 13 and under. Please note that no player who does not meet the age definition for the division they are entered may participate (i.e. no 13 year old may play in the 12 Club division). Also note that there is a net height change and ball change from 12 Club to 13 Club. Participation in both divisions will require two entry fees.
With regards to event registration in AES, you will only be able to enter ONE of your two teams in AES if players are being used on both rosters (e.g. your 12 and under players will be playing in the 12 Club division and then also with your 13s team in the 13 Club division). Please enter one of the two teams and then contact USAV so that we can manually enter your second team in AES. This will require a roster, including the staff members.
If you have any questions, please contact the USAV Events Department at 719-228-6800 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information can also be found on the tournament website: http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Volleyball/Events/Indoor/Boys/2013-BJNC.aspx.”
We hope that allowing the younger players to participate in both divisions will encourage growth in both divisions at the grassroots level and at the championships by allowing more play opportunities.
- WAIVERS - Are granted by the Boys Chair and require a waiver form and a copy of the players birth certificate. Waivered player are then place on your roster by the region. This is not something you can do yourself in webpoint. There is a max of two waivered players per team. NEW this year is we will allow waivered players to play in the Boys Regional Event since it is NOT a bid event.
