Club Director Communications
2/16/24 - VOLLEY STATION
You may have registered for an event where the tournament director/host may have stated that Volley Station scoring is required. This is not a policy in the Lone Star Region, as the region did not pre-approve the app for this season. If comfortable with the downloading of the app onto your or your athlete's electronic device, you may use Volley Station to keep score if you'd like.
Certification in scoring still requires a two-set paper score sheet to be submitted to the Scorer Chair and receive a passing score.
The Volley Station app will not be accepted for use during the Lone Star Junior Regionals tournament event. A paper score sheet must be kept by the certified scorer in the BID division and by the clinic-attended scorer in the non-BID division.
11/17/23 - Team Names and Team Codes in the Lone Star Region of USA Volleyball
a) Team names in the Region database of USA Volleyball (USAV) must reflect your club name and the age division. Abbreviations are only permitted if the Region had grandfathered the club in before our naming policy had to be instituted. It is not necessary to include Volleyball, Volleyball Club, or VBC. You can include this if you'd like, but this information is assumed on a club name.
b) There are standard abbreviations for the state and cities to shorten the possible long club name to fit into specific fields in registration systems.
Texas or Texan - TX
Friendswood - FR
Fredericksburg - FRED
Houston - HOU or H
Hill Country - HC
San Antonio - SA
There is a new system this season for creating the USAV team roster. The Club Administrator must be followed to create the team correctly.
a) Per the Playbook, teams must be shared with USA Volleyball, or the team does not show USAV. There is a "Submit to USA Volleyball" option in the three-dot menu to the far right of the screen of every team name. If there are changes on the roster, such as an addition, deletion, or amendment in the team name, the team must again be shared with USA Volleyball.
b) The TEAM RANK field is not an actual team ranking. That field is used as an identifier in the team code. If you only have one team in an age division, that team rank field should get a 1. If you have two teams in an age division, the first team should get a 1, and the second team should get a 2. Our Ranking Committee completes rankings in the Lone Star Region based on the team's tournament finish.
If a club uses a registration system to enter an event, those teams must match a correctly created team name and code in USAV. If you get a negative response from your tournament hosts, you must submit information through the HELP screen for the tournament registration system and ask them to change the team code.

9/22/23 - USAV Insurance and Certificate of Insurance
You can get your Certificate of Insurance (COI), which lists your registered Lone Star Region club, through EPIC Entertainment & Sports. These certificates automatically renew each season. However, two critical statements on the document show that coverage is only available during the sanctioned season and for currently registered USAV members. You can use your COI to reserve a school for practice, but no benefits will apply until the sanctioned start date of November 19, 2023.
• Coverage applies to the above Named Insured but only with respect to activities sanctioned or approved by USA Volleyball (USAV) or its Regional Volleyball Association (RVA).
• No coverage will apply for RVAs and RVA clubs for events conducted in which all participants are not registered with USAV.
The only activities covered are tournaments on LSR's Indoor Junior Tournament Schedule and LSR's Junior Outdoor Tournament Schedule, along with club practices during the sanctioned season. The Region will not sanction camps, clinics, or tryouts.

1 - 9/1/23 - Season registration is now open
USA Volleyball (USAV) officially opened the 2023-24 season today. All club participants are required to have a 2023-24 Lone Star membership to participate. Club participants are to register through your Public Club Assignment (PCA) link so that the membership will be assigned to your club. Should someone register through the Region website, you must still send them a Public Club Assignment to put that membership in your club. They will not be charged a second time. Club directors must have USAV Administrative access to send out the PCA. This is completed with the 2023-24 membership, background screen clearance, and current SafeSport certification.
SportsEngine did change the menu of your organization's (club) HQ. Go to the Directory menu option, then choose Membership. The PCA is located at the top left of the Membership page. If you have a Freemium account, you will automatically be on the USA Volleyball page showing when you choose Memberships. If you have a Premium account, you will need to take the extra step of selecting the USA Volleyball tab at the top of the Membership page.
I've attached the instructions for the purchased membership that should be sent out with your PCA link. Also attached is the Club Administrators Guide. The new Club Administrator - SportsEngine Playbook put out by USAV is communicated in the below hyperlink. The USAV Playbook is extremely helpful to all club directors. It does contain links and is not valid for printing. USAV has created a YouTube channel playlist to go along with this guide. I highly encourage you to watch these videos.
If your club participants have any registration issues, you can contact the Region Registrar's office at LSRregistrar@gmail.com or 830-358-7714. I do respond more quickly to emails as the phones are pretty busy. Members with registration issues can also send an email to my helper Jack Zaldivar at the email address Jackscheduler@gmail.com.Karen Tarmon
