AZ REGION JUNIOR GIRLS OPEN DIVISION
Check In Time: All teams must be checked in no later than: 7:30 am (AM Wave), 1:30 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.
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):
Beginning February 27th, an Acai Bowl tent will be set up at the AZ Region Building.
It will offer Acai Bowls, Coffee, Water, Gatorade and Kombucha. Enjoy!
