Registration and Cost Information


Interested teams can register using AES Once you have registered online, please print the entry form and send payment to VolleyFX immediately to secure your spot. Teams are accepted first-come; first-serve and spots are confirmed once payment is received. The 12 and under division is open to boys and girls and will only take place on Sunday with the cost for that division being $250.00. The cost of the tournament for all the other divisions is $525.00. All teams need to be prepared with the most recent copy of their USAV roster at check-in on Friday evening or Saturday morning of the tournament (check-in for 12s is open Friday evening or Sunday morning). Canadian teams are required to bring any form of a roster that includes players names and numbers. Canadian team payments should equal $525 American. Any questions please contact Katie Nicholas.

Tournament Format: Each division will be originally seeded based on previous tournament results and will then be put into pools of 3,4 or 5 based off the seeding and number of teams in each division. The divisions will be power pooled from the beginning, and seedings will be sent out prior to the tournament for feedback from all coaches and clubs. Teams will play one round of pool play, and then teams will reseed and play another complete round of pool play. After the second round, teams will enter playoffs based on their current standings single-elimination play will begin. Each team is guaranteed eight matches, and losing teams are expected to stay and work the next match once the playoffs have begun. All teams should assume play starts at 8 am on both days of play in all locations. VolleyFX will do its best to release out of town teams from their work duties if the opportunity presents itself. Pools and brackets will be posted on this page as the tournament gets closer.

Tournament Details: As we get closer to the tournament date, all information that is needed will be sent out to clubs via email and posted to this webpage. We will have the locations, addresses, tournament format documents and information for Canadian teams on this page.
