Once the above requirements have been met, you will receive an email notifying you have access to your club. If you have any questions, please contact Vikki.

Club Director News

We are still using the KRVA event system to propose tryouts and open gyms. Please log into the KRVA Event System (link to your left) to enter all your tryouts. All tryouts must be on one proposal and all open gyms on a separate proposal. The sanction fee is $50 for tryouts and $50 for Open Gyms.

Uniforms

In an effort to alleviate some confusion over the solid colored jersey rule that went into effect on September 1, and to ease the transition to the new rule, the Rules Commission has agreed to the following modified interpretations for the coming season.

Either the Libero and/or the rest of the team must wear a solid colored jersey that clearly contrasts with the predominant color(s) of the other jerseys. To be considered compliant as a solid colored jersey, the jersey must be a single color, including the sleeves. Numbers must be clearly contrasting and meet the size and location requirements as described in Rule 4.3, i.e. centered on the player's chest and upper back and at least 4" and 6" front and back, respectively. Exceptions for collars, cuffs and piping/trim, provided the piping/trim is along a working seam and is no wider than 1" at its widest point, are provided for in the rule. This part of the rule and its associated interpretations has not changed.

What has changed is that the Rules Commission has decided to relax the implementation of the solid colored jersey definition only as it pertains to the size and placement of the team logo/name graphic. Effective immediately, printing of the club/team/player name on the jersey and printing of a club logo or team mascot on the jersey will not be considered when determining if the jersey is compliant as a solid colored jersey.

Clubs are encouraged to follow the more restrictive examples portrayed in the VRT module since the intent is to enforce the definitions as agreed to by USAV, NCAA and NFHS for next season (beginning September 1, 2015). The placement of the numbers as defined in the rules will still be enforced (centered on player's chest and upper back) and could not be displaced by the team logo/name graphic. There is a very complete explanation on the VRT site which further illustrates solid colored jersey examples. Click on Solid Colored Jersey Rule at the top of the right hand column.

It is important to note here that any jersey that was legal last year will still be a legal jersey this year, it just may not be compliant as a solid colored jersey. That means that either the team or the Libero could still wear any jersey that was legal last year, the only difference is that now the opposite jersey (worn by either the Libero or the rest of the team) would need to be compliant as a solid colored jersey

National Buying Alliance

As additional value for your KRVA membership, we have entered into a relationship with a large buying alliance that will offer discounted prices on balls, uniforms, shoes & equipment with most of the major manufacturers. Visit the Keystone Region Buying Alliance for discounts.

The prices are available for bulk purchases only and are not available to individuals. Payments are required upon order through debit or credit cards. You can order for your teams and choose how much of the savings to pass along to individual members. Note that all orders must be paid via credit or debit card at time of order. We hope this saves you money and provides access to some quality products.
