VOLLEYBALL NOMINATION INSTRUCTIONS AND GUIDELINES

November 1 is the last date for volleyball coaches to become a member of the TGCA and be eligible to nominate athletes for volleyball honors. The head varsity coach of any athlete or support staff receiving an award must be a member in good standing by the membership nomination deadline. This also applies to Athlete of the Year, Coach of the Year, and All-Star Coach honors.

Monday noon prior to the State Volleyball Tournament is the deadline for all on-line nominations: All-Star, Legacy All-Star, All-State, Academic All-State, Athlete of the Year, All-Star Coaches and Coach of the Year.

All nomination forms must be sent to TGCA by submitting on-line at www.austintgca.com or mailed to TGCA, P.O. Box 2137, Austin, TX, 78768. No nominations will be accepted by telephone.

All nominations after the on-line deadline must be submitted to a committee member prior to the assigned selection meeting.

 

All-Star Nomination Guidelines:

1. All-Stars MUST BE INCOMING SENIORS;

2. All-Stars may be nominated by any member coach in good standing of the Texas Girls Coaches Association. For an individual to be selected to an All-Star team, the head coach must be a member in good standing. The current head coach must be contacted for approval of the player being selected as an All-Star. Member coaches may nominate as many players as they desire.

3. Two athletes from the same school can be named as All-Stars. The Volleyball Committee will have the option of selecting two athletes from one school and one school only per All-Star team on a yearly basis;

4. All-Stars will be selected in two divisions: 1A-2A-3A-4A and 5A-6A;

5. Volleyball All-Stars may not be Cheerleading, Basketball, Cross Country, Track & Field or Softball All-Stars;

6. IMPORTANT: Prior to nomination of an athlete, coaches must confirm that nominee, if selected, can be present for the All-Star orientation and will attend all practices. Players unable to commit to this policy should not be nominated. The All-Star position is a great honor and players should be aware prior to nomination that they are committed to follow policies of the Texas Girls Coaches Association.

RED/BLUE ALL-STAR SECTIONS: The state is divided into Red and Blue sections for determining the All-Star teams. Refer to your TGCA REGION -- NOT UIL -- to determine which section you are in.
