The "Evaluation Period" starts on July 5th immediately after the conclusion of the Girls Junior National Championships.  The Acceptance date for USAV age groups 15-18 is the third Saturday in July (July 21, 2018) and 10-14 is the fourth Saturday in July (July 28, 2018).  Clubs can make offers any time on or after the Acceptance Date.
