Club Volleyball Information

Matrix Club Volleyball is working to put together some of the most elite volleyball teams in the Region.  We want boys who will be dedicated to Matrix Volleyball and their team/coaches.  Some of the best teams out there are the teams that have been playing together for years.  We want our boys to win together, stay together, grow together and support each other, on and off the court. Once they grow up and have chosen there college to play or just attend, we hope that they will always be there to continue to support each other.

Matrix boys train two days a week, we then have tournaments almost every weekend for the next 4 months. This is a lot of volleyball and a lot of time together.  Club Volleyball is an amazing experience for any athlete who participates and gives it their all!

We are excited for the upcoming season and look forward to seeing some of the new and returning talent that will be trying out to be a part of the Matrix Club Volleyball experience.  Good Luck!

Concussion Education

With the blessing of the NFL the state of Arizona passed concussion legislation that was signed into law April 2011. As a result all athletes and their parents must be educated in the signs, symptoms and what to do if you have a concussion. Coaches must also be trained regarding the same. In order to use school facilities for our programs and our tournaments we must comply with this new law. As a result the Arizona Region requires that each parent and player read their respective CDC Fact Sheet on Concussions and sign an Acknowledgement Form indiciating they understand the signs, symptoms and what to do if they think they have a concussion. The Acknowledgement form is to be turned in to the club with registration materials. No player will be put on a roster until this form has been received each season.

Athlete Fact Sheet 4.13 Parent Fact Sheet 4.13 Concussion Acknowledgement Form 7.16

SafeSport Education

The Arizona Region in conjunction with the US Olympic Committee and USA Volleyball have launched their SafeSport Programs. The USOC has mandated that all National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of Sport launch a SafeSport Program with the goal to stop abuse in sport. There are 6 components of the SafeSport Program – Bullying, Hazing, Harrassment, Sexual Misconduct, Emotional Misconduct and Physical Misconduct. The Arizona Region first start is to define these 6 compenents as defined in the SafeSport Program. There is a form (Page 3 of the document) that is to be signed by the parent after discussing the 6 components of SafeSport with their child that is applying for membership in the Arizona Region. This form is now a requirement for membership along with the Concussion Acknowledgement Form and a birth certificate on file.
