Age Waiver Request
In an effort to accommodate teams that are playing locally and not attempting to advance to the National Championships, the North Texas Region of USA Volleyball has adopted a policy to allow players to play with their grade level and out of their age group for local events. Only Club or Recreational level teams may request a waiver.
