ARIZONA ASA TO CHANGE JO
REGISTRATION SEASON TO SEPTEMBER 1-AUGUST 31
EFFECTIVE 2015 SEASON
ASA to change JO Registration
Arizona ASA will be
joining 22 other ASA Associations in restructuring our Junior
Olympic Registration dates from the traditional January
1-December 31 timeline to September 1-August 31 to better
correlate the National Championship Tournament Calendar. As many
teams begin recruiting and conducting tryouts right after the
National Championships, we are restructuring our registration
schedule to help teams put together their new teams in September
after the ASA/USA National Championships and Western National
Championships are concluded.
THIS CHANGE WILL
NOT EFFECT THE PLAYERS ELIGIBILITY AGE !!!!!!!
Why did we decided to join the other 22 associations with this
1. The time frame better matches
the normal playing season evolution of our teams. After National
Championship play in August, teams reform, and players move up
to begin the next year of competition.
2. It allows your
team the opportunity to purchase the best insurance policy in
youth sports, Bollinger Insurance that can be utilized in ANY
friendly, practice or other outside organizations tournaments as
all other organizations begin their team registration season
September-August, without having to wait until January for your
newly formed team after tryouts.
3. For the teams who
have high school playing athletes on their roster, gives your
team September-February to play in tournaments, etc. as opposed
to registering in January and only having two months as a team
before you lose players to high school teams.
4. For our
association that has the ability to play in most of the state
year round, it gives all of teams in the Central and Southern
District the ability to utilize the team registration the entire
year leading up to Nationals. Also gives your team more time to
prepare for National Championships if you qualify to go.
How will this effect teams that are registered for 2014
that started in January 2014?
Arizona ASA teams
that have registered in 2014 are valid until December 31, 2014.
However, for the 2015 season, the registration period will end,
August 31, 2015.
What are we doing to assist your team with this
Arizona ASA is conducting a
tournament in Prescott, Arizona, August 23-24 called the

We believe, like many of the other ASA
Associations who have made the switch from January 1-December 31
to the NEW September 1-August 31 registration period will better
serve our Junior Olympics teams. If you have any questions in
