Welcome to the 2018 Central Zone season. The Central Zones are coming off another successful season in which teams finished in many of the top spots in the 2017 US Junior National Championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the AAU Championships in Orlando, FL. Once again the results confirm that the Central Zones are not only one of the most competitive junior leagues in the Midwest, but also in the Nation!
This year's Central Zone Series will be using Advanced Event Systems for its registration process. AES will be the website that is the choice of USAV Girl’s Junior National Championship, National Qualifiers, Regional’s, and many other events throughout the country.
The Capitol Sports Center staff will send out broadcast emails to inform you of other information and steps as they come available.
Entry fees must be received with completed entry form to be accepted into the tournament by 1/19/2018. This event is open to all teams USAV, JVA, or AAU, however, rosters do need to be submitted online by the roster deadline.
Required pre-tournament check-in will take place at the Indianapolis Convention Center from 3:00-9:00 PM on Friday, February 2nd. Please make sure that rosters are complete in AES by Wednesday, January 31st. All teams MUST be checked in before playing.
