Tournament START Time: 

  • 8 am (AM Wave) 
  • 2 pm (PM Wave)

Check-in should be completed at the tournament desk no later than 1/2 hour prior to the tournament first scheduled match start time. A picture ID for each coach on the roster is required along with a medical release form for each player on the roster. A current SportsEngine roster is required to be signed and turned into the site director for use at the tournament. There is an 8 point penalty to the team's first match if the coach is not checked in 1/2 hour prior to the first match start time of the tournament.  In this time of COVID, teams may drop late.  If a team drops the format will change. All teams should be checked in, on site and ready to play in the first match of the day in the event a team does drop late.

  • Rosters are required to have correct jersey numbers. The rosters will be checked off by the site director at check in. At this point, team registration forms, hand written rosters and write-ins will not be allowed.

 

Format

Teams are straight seeded into divisions of 6 or 7.  Six team divisions will play 3 team pools followed by a cross pool match.  The 7 team division will play the same format as the Club/Championship divisions of 7.  The format is pool of 3 and a bracket of 4 teams playing.  Finishes in their respective half of the division will dictate the match for place in the division.

Pool play will be followed by a cross-pool match of the corresponding finish in the other pool of the division. (The 8-team division will use a modified bracket for pool play).

Following this tournament, 2 teams will move up and 2 teams will move down a division for the next tournament play, (unless the next tournament is the Region Championship).

Match play is best 2 of 3 sets to 25, 3rd set to 15, if needed.

Ties will be resolved by the new USAV procedure adopted for 2020 (paraphrased as follows):

  1. 2 way tie by match % - the head to head winner of those 2 teams earns the higher pool finish
  2. 3 way tie by match % - finish determined by set % (sets won / total sets played)
    • if 2 teams are tied by set % after one team's finish is determined by having the highest or lowest set %, then the head to head winner of those 2 teams earns the higher pool finish 
  3. 3 way tie by match % and set % - finish determined by point % (points won / total points played)
    • if 2 teams are tied by point % after one team's finish is determined by having the highest or lowest point %, then the head to head winner of those 2 teams earns the higher pool finish
