Officials will be issued a parking pass at our Friday night meeting that can be used for the Red North Preferred lot at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Limited parking passes will be available for those working at the Phoenix Convention Center. The other playing sites all have free parking.

We plan to provide 2 long sleeve dri-fit shirts or similar apparel. You may wear your USAV uniform while officiating, however please DO NOT wear your USAV patch as this is an AAU licensed event.
