General Information

All participants in any IREVA-sanctioned events or activities, including but not limited to tryouts, camps, clinics, practices, scrimmages and tournaments must be registered members of USAV. This includes players, coaches, assistant coaches and others. See the IREVA membership policy for additional details. 

All adults registering with a Juniors club must have a USAV background check and accept the Junior Club Personnel Code of Ethics  as part of the membership registration process. USAV background checks are paid for by IREVA as part of the membership fee with no additional cost to member or club; good for two membership years; independent of any other background checks, even if redundant - there are no provisions for reciprocity because each organization defines its own policies, procedures, criteria for pass / fail, etc. See the Registration page for more information.

In addition, all adults registering with a Juniors club must obtain USAV/USOC SafeSport certification. SafeSport training is NO LONGER INCORPORATED in IMPACT as of 2017/18. 

Head coaches (defined as on the bench with a team) and all assistant coaches are required to have IMPACT certification. See the Education page for more information on coaches’ education opportunities. 

Club Directors or their delegated Club Admins are expected to continually check WEBPOINT to ensure that their club membership is correctly reflected with information in the system for the club, club director's contact information, teams and Team Reps' contact information, etc. All active teams should have players listed for accurate rosters. Prior year teams should be switched to inactive if they are not current. Having good information in the database can assist IREVA with planning our events, communicating with clubs, and guiding prospective members with good information about opportunities.
