All teams advance to playoffs. All teams must be ranked within
their pools based on match percentage first. For
any ties, use the tie-breaking procedure below. All first-place,
second-place, and the top two third-place
teams to the Gold playoffs. The remaining third-place and all
fourth-place teams to the Silver

Playoff positions on the tournament brackets will be based on pool
finish to avoid teams from the
same pool playing each other in the first round. To avoid
third-place teams playing a team from
their pool for the first tournament match, a tournament director
can choose to switch best third place
and second-best third-place teams on the tournament bracket if
both teams consent to the

Seeding procedure:
Pool A - Seeds 1, 6, 7, 12
Pool B - Seeds 2, 5, 8, 11
Pool C - Seeds 3, 4, 9, 10

Teams from the same club, regardless of seed, should not be placed
in the same pool.
Tie-breaking: Since all teams advance to playoffs, ties will not
be decided by playing a set.
1. If 2 teams from the same pool are tied, their head to head
match determines their order of finish.
2. If 3 teams from the same pool are tied after match and set %
and point differential have been
calculated, a coin flip will determine their order of finish.
For the third-place teams:
3. If 2 teams from different pools are tied after match and set %
and point differential have been
calculated, a coin flip will determine their order of finish.
4. If 3 teams from different pools are tied after match and set %
and point differential have been
calculated, a coin flip will determine their order of finish.

Work rotations will be set by the designated head official. 
Highest ranking officials will be expected to work the finals. 
All officials are expected to be there by 7:30 AM and attend the
coaches meetings.  Checks will not be issued for any officials
working final matches, until the game balls are returned to the
tournament director.  All officials eat free of charge from the
concession stand.
