CURRENT FAQs (as of 3/20/2017)
Who is eligible to participate?
• Boys and Girls
• Current Iowa Region members and Iowa Residents with current USAV Membership
from neighboring Regions.
definitions will be used for the Iowa HP Program?
Iowa Region HP will follow the same age definitions as needed for our Qualifier events, but we are aware that when our teams attend the HP division of the ABT series they will need to adjust slightly. For that championship event, we will follow these USAV Beach
High Performance age divisions. Athletes may only try out and play in their own age group
and teams are classified based on the birth year of the oldest partner.
(U13) Born in 2005, 2006 or later; (U15) Born in 2003 or 2004; (U17) Born in 2001 or 2002; (U19) Born in 1999 or 2000;
(U21) Born in 1997 or 1998; (U23) Born in 1995 or 1996
Our program is geared toward selecting
complete HP teams so it is essential you find a compatible partner prior to the
selection event on Friday June 16. If
assistance is needed, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the expected costs for participation in the Iowa Beach HP program?
Program administrators are still working through full 2017 budgets but these points have been determined:
· Teams will be responsible for all
event registrations EXCEPT for the final Region HP Championship--the ABT
Championship in Florida.
· Travel to and from all events will
be the responsibility of each individual team.
· Additional Iowa Beach HP fees will cover:
Iowa Beach HP uniform, coach stipend & fees, equipment and some facility fees.
When will the 2017 Iowa HP Beach coaching staff be named?
We hope to have the Iowa staff named by 4/15. Named staff will be
announced as agreements are secure. Any beach coach interested in serving in this capacity should contact Michelle
Goodall (email@example.com) Applications will be accepted until positions
are filled or 4/15.
