Boys Tournament Format

  • Coaches Meeting: 8:30 START Time
  • Tournament START Time:  9 am
  • Check-in should be completed at the tournament desk prior to the Coach's meeting. 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 WebPoint 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 BEFORE the Coach's Meetings AND if the coach does not attend the Coach's meeting.
  • Rosters are required to have correct jersey numbers. The rosters will be checked off by the site director at check in. Hand written rosters will not be allowed (write-ins also not allowed for this tournament going forward).
  • Format - Teams are straight seeded into divisions of 6, 7 or 8 and separated into 2 pools within each division. Pool play will be followed by a cross-pool match of the corresponding finish in the other pool of the division or bracket play. Following this tournament 3 teams will move up and 3 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 standard procedure: 2 way tie = head-to-head; 3 way tie = set % (sets won / total sets played), then if needed point % (points won / total points played) -- at no time will head-to-head apply in a 3 way tie.
  • Please note: for any 7 team division, the 3 team pool will play auto 3 sets to 25 (if one team wins the first 2 sets, the 3rd set will not be considered in set % and point % calculations in the event of a 3-way pool tie).  This is not optional.

Important Tournament Information - Please Read!

  • Any teams traveling to out of state qualifiers - A coach or other rostered certified adult is required to ref as an R2 for every match when assigned as the work team at National Qualifier tournaments.  It is strongly recommended (although not required) that a rostered adult R2 at least one match at every AZ Region tournament to remain proficient for qualifiers.
     
  • PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament PRIOR to Saturday. There is a $100 fine for teams that "no-show". The point is that it creates a big problem if there is a team that does not show.
     
  • Coaches - please have your teams on site and ready to play at the start time even if they are to referee first round.  A "no show" at start time will change the division format immediately.  Everyone needs to be ready to play.
     
  • Purple Card policy will be in effect.
     
  • Coaches you must be available during ref assignments to help with scorekeeping and officiating.  You are also responsible for your parent's behavior and "team camp" area clean up.
     
  • Let us be reminded that facilities are one of the most difficult parts of putting together a successful season. To that end, we MUST treat them with the utmost respect. That means keep your coffee, food and coolers outside, NO COOKING OF ANY KIND (includes crockpots, hotplates, sterno heated chafing dishes, barbeques, anything that produces heat, etc) on the premesis, pick up all the trash around your bench area and your "camp" area, NO ALCOHOL on site, and park in designated parking spaces only. Please leave your televisions at home. Treat all facility personnel as if they have the authority to ask you to move your stuff because they do. Thanks for your help in making this a very successful season.

New for 2020:

  • Food and beverages in the gym policy enforcement-
    Any participant and/or spectator found with food/beverages (except for water in closed containers) in the gym will incur a 13 point penalty for their team in their next match. A report will be filed with the Region Office.  Further violations by the same team will result in a $200 fine for each occurrence.  The fine must be paid before the team will be allowed to continue participating.
  • Pack it in/Pack it out policy-
    Due to the amount of trash accumulated and left at tournament locations, the Region has enacted a pack it in/pack it out policy.  Whatever is brought to a tournament should be packed up and taken home to recycle, reuse, or dispose of at their own residence.  Site directors are spending more and more time cleaning up, facilities are spending more money for additional trash pickup following our events.  This policy will help to reduce waste and trash at AZ Region events.  In this day and age of "green", let's all do our part!

Trash and failure to follow facility rules are THE major sources of reluctance of athletic directors to let us use gyms. We need to do a much better job keeping food and drink (including coffee and coolers) out of the gym and taking our trash home!
