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 registration change?
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
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 transition?
Arizona ASA is
conducting a tournament in Prescott, Arizona, August 23-24
called the Registration Kick-Off Classic. We are giving all
teams who participate in this tournament a $200 credit towards
purchasing your 2015 team registration through
To register for this tournament,
please go to
www.tournamentasa.com and click
on girls fast pitch, then Arizona ASA. You can log in with your
tournamentasa.com account and register for the tournament.
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 regards to this
change, please contact the J.O. State Commissioner.
