From the USAV Office
NEW for the 2021 SEASON
GIRLS’ 18 AND UNDER WAIVERED PLAYER:
Players who were born on or after September 1, 2002, (who are defined as 18 & under by the USAV Age Definition) and are in the 11th grade for the current academic year are eligible to compete in the 17 & under division. For example: A 17 year old female player who is considered by the Age Definition to compete on an 18s team and is still in the 11th grade for the current academic year, may compete on their 17s team in a qualifying division for both NQs and GJNC with a waiver from their region.
Please note: the frozen player rule would still be enforced. A player can play on both a 17s & 18s team during the season but would become frozen to a roster with whatever team they qualify with first and would no longer be eligible to play for both teams in qualification.
