ANY QUESTIONS regarding your team's practice schedule, tournaments, etc. should be directed to your coach.
Power League: Your coach will let you know which facility your team will play at. The Facility locations and rules are posted on the Puget Sound Region USAV website: https://www.psrvb.org/facility-info
NW Juniors hosted tournaments If the tournament is hosted at multiple locations, then your coach will let you know which location your team will be at. The locations and rules are posted on the tournament events drop-down page: https://www.nwjuniors.org/tournament-home
(Teams may participate in TRAVEL tournaments that are NOT USAV. So, be sure to verify first if a tournament is USAV before asking your chaperone to get USAV membership.) You can find out if a tournament is USAV by clicking on it's travel page.
USAV tournaments require chaperones to have Adult Affiliated with a Junior Program which includes a background check (can take up to 3 weeks) and Safe Sport Certification.
To take part of the administrative load off of the coach, team parent representatives called Team Focals, will be selected by the coach of each team. They will be responsible for coordinating all events for their teams. The parent focal is the primary communication link between the players, the coach, and club administration. Some teams will also select a Fundraising Focal to help organize team fundraisers. Finally, when traveling, U14 and older teams will travel with adult female Team Chaperones. These positions are defined below.
During the current season, we ask that parents attend as many tournaments as possible. If you as a parent or guardian cannot attend, please contact a fellow parent to chaperone your daughter(s). For out of region or overnight traveling tournaments for U14 and older teams, we will have one designated adult female chaperone per team. The chaperone can either be another coach or a selected parent of a player on that specific team.
The chaperone must be willing to room with another chaperone if attending a tournament with other NWJRS Elite teams. They must also be willing to room with their daughter and other players if necessary. Most importantly, the Chaperone needs to be available and accessible to all of the players at all times.
