Welcome to another year of volleyball in the Ohio Valley Region.

USA Volleyball, including the Ohio Valley Region, uses SportsEngine (SE) as our member management system.

We recommend that you use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge as your browser. Internet Explorer is not supported.

This means that you will be logging into SportsEngine. The first step is to create an account (not a membership yet) on the SportsEngine system. (An exception is if your club is already using SportsEngine for their website. In that case, you may already have a SportsEngine account.) Click here for an overview of this process. You may complete this first step of creating your SportsEngine account now.

Read this closely.

The parent/guardian of a Junior player must create their own "Household" account first with their name, email address and birthdate. You will be electronically signing waivers that only an adult can sign.

Then use the "Add A Child" to add your child's information as you purchase the membership for them. Do not puirchase a memership for yourself.

USE LEGAL NAMES WHEN REGISTERING! No nicknames in the First Name field.

When you click on any of the links below, you will be taken to the SportsEngine login screen and be prompted for your email address. If you are a family with a Junior Player, a parent should enter their email address to create an account. One new feature with the SE system is the family can add multiple people under one account. That way you only need to remember one login and password instead of one for each participant. But we do recommend that you write down the email address and the password that you entered.

After you enter your email address, if SE finds your email address in its database of logins, you will be prompted for your password. If you do not remember your password for this system, click the button: Forgot?

If SE does not find your email address in its login database, you will be prompted to create an account. Enter the requested information. Again, this should be the adult's (parent/guardian) information not the junior player. You will be prompted later to "Add A Child" if the actual membership will be for a child.

As you register for a membership below, it will look like you are signing up for two memberships. One is the USAV's (National Organization) membership and one is the Ohio Valley Region membership. You must purchase both. The prices for the total membership is the same as last year. They just broke it into pieces so you can see where your money is going. You may also see two separate charges (totaling the amount of your membership) on a credit card statement.

NOTE: SportsEngine does not accept American Express credit cards.


Registration Steps: READ THESE!!!

  • Click on the link below and you will be transferred to SportsEngine. You will be asked to log in with your email address.
  • If you do not already have an account, you will create a "Household" account. Enter the Parent/Guardian information including name and birthdate.
  • You will then be asked: "Who is this membership for?"
  • If your child's name is not already listed, click on: "Add a Child"
  • Enter the child's information including name and birthdate.
  • This creates a SportsEngine Account for the child. The remaining steps will then enable you to purchase a Membership under that account.
  • If you have a second child, return to this page later and start over with the other child's information.
  • For 2023-2024 Season - (Grade-Grad Year); (12th-2024); (11th-2025); (10th-2026); (9th-2027); (8th-2028); (7th-2029); (6th-2030); (5th-2031); (4th-2032); (3rd-2033)
  • Once a player/family has accepted an Early Signing Contract or regular Contract with a club, that player should not attend other club's tryouts. That would be unethical. The family cannot sign a second contract with a different club!

    Link to all Season, Junior Tryouts and Beach/Outdoor Registrations System.

    OVR Tryout Membership is valid for OVR tryouts as well as bordering Region tryouts like: Pioneer, Keystone, Lakeshore, etc. Their Tryout membership is also valid for attending OVR tryouts.

    When you sign up for tryouts or attend a tryout and fill out a form for the club, make sure you enter the same email address that you used to create your Household account in SportsEngine when you purchased the Tryout Membership. Otherwise, you may end up creating a new Household account later and lose the $10 you have paid for the Tryout Membership.

    Full Season Junior Membership:

    After you have signed a contract to play with a club, beginning September 3rd the club will send you an email with a Club Assignment Request. This will associate your player with their club and lead you to purchasing a full Season Membership.

    If the player is 18 or will be turning 18 during the current season (8/31/2024), they will need to complete the SafeSport Certification. You will be prompted with a link to that certification after you have completed your membership registration and your club adds you to a team's roster. You do not need to complete it immediately. But you do need to complete it before you can be added to a team roster.

    The 23-24 full Season Membership is valid for any USAV/OVR (indoor or outdoor) sanctioned event until August 31, 2024.

    Cost is $67 ($25 goes to USAV and $42 goes to the OVR) for females and $47 ($25 goes to USAV and $22 goes to the OVR) for males {Junior males have a shorter USAV season than Junior females.}. If you have previously purchased the Tryout Membership after 6/7/2023, this cost will be reduced by $10.


    All Adult, Junior Coach or Junior Professional Official Memberships: These memberships require their own SportsEngine Household account with a unique email address.

    Registration for the 2023-2024 Season Is Now Open.

    Most memberships (Adult Players Going to USAV Opens excluded) listed below are required to have a current background screening (good for one season). You will be prompted separately to sign up for a new screening. The cost is $14 for credit card processing fees. As you register for your screening, you will be asked for your "Club". If you do not have a club, just enter "None".

    You are also required to have a current SafeSport certification (good for one season). You will be prompted later if you need to take a SafeSport course this season.

    Coaches are also required to complete the USAV IMPACT course (good for life). If you need to complete this course, you will be prompted later with the link.

    Coaches must register for the OVR Coaches Membership even if you are also a club director, official, tournament director, etc. You will need to return to this page and start over for each membership type. Answer the question: "What is your primary role?" differently each time. You only pay once for the first membership because they are all the same price.

    Club Directors, Assistant Directors, Club Administrators, Coaches, Professional Officials, Tournament Directors ($67) Chaperones/ ($42), and Adult Players Only Going to Adult Opens ($25)

    For Tournament Directors and Officials, when you submit your background screening, you will be asked for your club's name. If you do not have a club, just enter "None".

    Cost is $67 ($25 goes to USAV and $42 goes to the OVR).

    This membership is valid for any USAV/OVR (indoor or outdoor) sanctioned event until August 31, 2024.

    Membership registrations are downloaded from SportsEngine to the OVR system each morning before 9 am. You have to wait until then to perform OVR functions like Requesting Tryout Sanctions, Requesting Tournament Sanctions, Adding Players to Rosters, etc.
