After You Make a Platform Team

Congratulations!  We are excited for this club season!

Remember!  Please be respectful of others and of the tryout process.  Do not communicate your tryout status with others.  Selecting teams is a long process and phone calls can take some time, especially when there are a lot of questions to answer.  The Platform Elite coaches and staff do their best to make calls in a timely fashion.  Please also refrain from using social media outlets to announce your acceptance of any team.Below are several items you need to do after you are selected for a Platform team:

1.  Register or update your USAV membership:

  • If you haven't already done so, register your player at the Iowa Region website:
    • Go to
    • Click "BECOME A MEMBER"
    • Click "Renew Membership" if your player has been a USAV member before or "New Membership" if your player has not been a USAV member before
    • Be sure to select "QC-Platform Elite" as your club
    • Complete the membership process, which requires a payment of $50 that goes directly to USA Volleyball
  • If you have already joined USAV this year, update your USAV membership club affiliation to Platform Elite:
    • Go to
    • Login
    • Click "My Information" link
    • For "Club" select QC-Platform Elite
    • Save

2.  Complete the Iowa Region Commitment Form.  Please print commitment form below, complete the form, including parent and player signatures, and return it to Melissa via email, fax (563.275.3243), or mail.

3.  Attend Uniform Night at High 5 Lanes & Games conference room at BettPlex, Thursday, November 15,  5:30pm-8:00pm (come anytime between 5:30 and 8:00).  Uniform fitting should only take 30-45 minutes.

Other information:

Uniform samples will be available for sizing purposes.  Restrooms will be available for fitting rooms, but we suggest players wear a tank top or similar to speed up the process.  We are on a strict deadline for ordering uniforms so we MUST have your order on November 20.  You will place your uniform order online at home after the uniform fitting.  All uniforms items will be shipped to your home address.

Lauren Hansen from My Recruiting Assistant will be at Uniform Night to answer any questions families have about the college recruiting process so bring your questions and stop and say "hi" to Lauren.
