ARIZONA ASA TO CHANGE JO REGISTRATION SEASON TO SEPTEMBER 1-AUGUST 31
EFFECTIVE 2015 SEASON

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.

REGISTERASA.COM IS “LIVE” FOR 2014

The registerasa.com website will be live for the 2014 season on Monday, December 2.  At this time, you will be able to go in and begin to register your team/league for the 2014 season.  There are many new updates to this system that I believe you will appreciate when registering your team or league for 2013.

As you visit the website as a Team Administrator, League Administrator, coach, parent or player, once you register, you become a MEMBER of Arizona ASA. As the primary purpose is to obtain insurance for the members of your team, there are so many more benefits to becoming a member of Arizona ASA by registering your team or league through regiterasa.com.  Some other benefits include:

Become a Member of Arizona ASA

One of the options will be to “Add Team to New Season” button to have your entire team information repeated into the 2014 season.  To do this, simply go to your home plate, click on the team you are moving to 2014.  Once you get to the team page, click on the Information button to get to the team information.  Change your age classification and deductible amount if necessary. Once your team’s information is up to date, click the “Add Team to New Season” button.  From there you can remove players no longer on your team, add new players that are joining your team, etc. then submit for a new invoice.

Please also be aware that if you are the league administrator for your recreation league, you must have your district J.O. Commissioner approve you each year to create your league.  This helps protect the past year’s participants from anyone who has left your organization from going into the system and having access to your league.

For Injury Claims, there are two options for travel teams.  Either a $125 deductible with photo id cards or $250 deductible with photo id cards are available.  For RECREATIONAL LEAGUES ONLY, there is one option, the $250 deductible without photo id.  These participants will receive a non photo card instead of the photo id cards necessary for traveling teams to participate in ASA tournaments.  Finally, regarding the insurance for 2014, the 90/10 co pay to the deductible is still in effect.  Attached is a description of what the 90/10 co pay is all about.

Frequently Asked Questions on Filing an Injury Claim

If you have any questions regarding the revised version of registerasa.com or have any problems/questions with registering your team or league, please contact your district J.O. Commissioner for assistance.  You can find your district J.O. Commissioner’s contact information by going to the contacts link of this website, www.azasa.org .

We look forward to assisting all our travel teams and recreational leagues.  Good luck on a successful ASA season.
