Despite COVID, Gateway Region saw continued growth among our U10 participants in the 2020-2021 season, with a record 16 teams that registered as full junior members that played a true club season.  Numbers of U10 participants in  1/week training programs did not significantly decline despite the increase in competitive teams.  For this reason, the region feels our youth population has grown enough to offer the U10 age division the opportunity to join all the older age divisions (U11-U18) in competing for a Regional Championship.  Like all the older ages, U10 teams will divide into 2 divisions.  The competitive division will compete both days, and is specifically for U10 teams that registered will full USAV junior memberships ($50), and are playing a season of true tournaments.  The Program division will only compete Saturday, and is limited to only those players who have purchased a  USAV youth membership ($15), and are participating in various 1/week training programs offered by clubs or other VB affiliates.

Online Payment option is available through AES online registration.  Teams may Choose to forgo online payment, and pay by check - teams that select this option must print the receipt of their online registration form, and send that form with their entry fee to our office.
