I apologize for the very late email. I was hoping to have many more details, but very little information has been put out about the tournament in Arizona this weekend. My flight is scheduled to arrive around 3 PM on Friday and I’m happy to help pick up players and parents wherever I’m needed. My brother is expecting us that afternoon at his home at 2918 E Park Ave, Gilbert, AZ 85234. I plan to check-in our team Friday night between 5 PM and 9 PM and will share more details about our schedule at that time. We should expect to be playing or officiating each day between 8 AM and 3 PM. There are NO Covid testing or vaccination requirements for players or spectators.
We are playing at Legacy Sports USA, 1 Legacy Drive, Mesa, AZ 85212. Spectators can purchase admission passes at this website: https://www.tixr.com/groups/legacysports/events/pch-mlk-arizona-volleyball-grand-prix-34267 They do not yet have a results page live, but I suspect it will eventually be available here: https://advancedeventsystems.com/events/27773
Players should eat a healthy and fulfilling breakfast before coming to the tournament each day which means needing to get to sleep early Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Players should pack a lunch and extra snacks for each day and not leave the venue for food. Please ensure the athletes always have the following: both uniform tops, black athletic shorts, water bottle, athletic shoes, team t-shirts and hoodies. (Optional items to bring are kneepads, sweats, and/or a blanket.) All players should expect to help with officiating responsibilities and stay until the end of each day unless they are released to their parents by the coach.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
