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. Some divisions may use power pooling to better serve all teams attending. Teams will play one complete round of pool play, and then teams will play in a challenge match. After the challenge match, teams will enter playoffs based on their current standings and single-elimination play will begin. Each team is guaranteed 6 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.


Food Information

Most facilities will have concessions open. We will provide a pdf with helpful information for food in the area.
