2020-21 MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION
Membership registration will now be completed via Sports Engine Member Management System, (SE MMS). The three attachments should give you some insight into the process to register for this upcoming season. The links to various training videos and information videos are all very good.
We understand that getting used to a new system will take some time and there will be times when frustrations will emerge. Please be patient, we understand that having to deal with the COVID virus will also test our patience.
An announcement regarding the Official start date of the 2020 - 2021 season should be made shortly.
We do recognize that the fall high school sports season has been postponed until either the winter or spring session. There will be a conflict between the club and high school volleyball. USA Volleyball is working with the NHFS to hopefully resolve this potential conflict.
The State needs to get better so "large gatherings" can be allowed. There will be additional safety protocols at our tournaments to comply with USA Volleyball, State, and CDC guidelines. We hope to keep up with the rapidly changing rules and guidelines and ask for your patience and understanding going forward.
Mahalo for the Aloha Region Staff.

2020-21 ALOHA REGION TRYOUT/COMMITMENT POLICY
The 2020-21 Aloha Region Tryout/Commitment Policy is being formulated. Due to the ever-changing situation and resulting availability of venues and restrictions, it has been difficult to determine dates which would provide a level playing field for everyone. We do expect to arrive at a final document with the understanding that changes will occur as Federal, State, and CDC guidelines allow. Stay tuned!!
