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 cost of the tournament is $325. All teams need to be prepared with the most recent copy of their USAV roster at check-in on the morning of the tournament. 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 may be power pooled to allow competitive play. 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. Schedule and results can be found on AES.

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. Tournament procedures regarding Covid-19 will also be posted on this page.

SPECTATOR POLICY

Main Street Armory and Pinnacle -

In accordance with WEVA Guidelines, each team is allowed one spectator per rostered player. Each team must submit a spectator list designating a spectator for each player by Friday 6pm before the start of the tournament. Spectators will be asked to verify their name on the list when entering the facility and hand in their Covid Waiver and Attestation form. 

Spectators at the Main Street Armory must always stay upstairs unless getting concessions or using the restroom. Each team may designate 2 chaperones that will be allowed downstairs to chaperone the team and watch the team during their match. These rules are in place to meet the capacity limit at the Armory set in place by the local county health department. Chaperones must be one of the spectators on the spectator list. 

Coaches must provide a list of spectators by filling a google form below. Please only fill out one form per team. If a team is playing on both Saturday and Sunday, please fill out a form for each division.

Tri-County Sports Complex -

In accordance with WEVA guidelines each team is allowed to have five adults attend the tournament in person, this includes coaches. For example, if you have two coaches on your roster, you are allowed to have three additional adults attend the tournament. The decision as to who attends the tournament will be made by the coaches. A reminder that the team binder should be with one of the adults in attendance and if you are playing at a site where the facility is not live streaming the play, it is recommended that one of the adults in attendance live stream the matches. The adults who are attending the event should have their names handwritten on the official roster by the team’s coach. If the parent representative for the team is one of the adults attending the tournament, their name should already be on the team’s official roster.
