ARIZONA ASA TO CHANGE JO REGISTRATION SEASON TO SEPTEMBER 1-AUGUST 31


Arizona ASA to change JO Registration (Printable Version)

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?

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 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
www.registerasa.com. 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.

ARIZONA ASA HAS TEAMED UP WITH TOURNAMENTASA.COM

The website will allow you as a coach to view whose coming, see pool play and elimination brackets updated as games complete and view the location of each tournament site with directions and more.   

With many of the other ASA State Association’s partnering with this website, you will be able to have access to our surrounding state’s tournament pages and see who’s coming to their tournaments as well. 

We are excited to partner with this new website and look forward to providing the best tournament registration site ASA has to offer to our teams.
