Welcome to the largest regional Junior Volleyball Championship in the United States (and maybe the world)! Almost 900 teams will be participating in this event at various venues in the Columbus, Ohio area over the next three weekends. The Ohio Valley Region is very proud to provide this opportunity to its members.

This year we are the guests of five Columbus area schools on May 1. It is the obligation of every player, coach, parent, and spectator to respect these facilities and obey all of the rules of each site. Failure to do so will result in sanction by the region (not to mention possible loss of facility for next year!). All site directors and officials are instructed to report all persons violating facility regulations. These include:

  • Absolutely no food of any kind is allowed in the gymnasiums. Water and sports drinks in plastic containers are the only fluids permitted in the gyms.
  • Camping must be kept in designated areas. Make sure you pick up your camp before you leave the facility. No coolers are permitted in any facility!
  • No running, horseplay, or “pepper” in the halls.
  • Chairs may or may not be permitted on gymnasium floors. Bring them with you but check before you use them.

There may be concessions available at the sites for 10s and 12s.

Regulations at the Greater Columbus Convention Center are:

  • No coolers or bags of food may be brought into the building. Security guards will be on duty to enforce this rule! Concessions are available.
  • No running, horseplay, or “pepper” outside of Hall C, D, and Hall E/F.
  • Chairs are permitted in the facility. Make sure not to block any fire exits.
  • Water bottles are permitted at the courts.

Tournament T-shirts and volleyball apparel will also be available.

All registered adult members of the Ohio Valley Region are eligible and encouraged to vote for our Board of Directors. There will be a voting booth at the convention center. See the site director at your site to vote the first weekend.

Trainers will not be available on May 1. There will be a trainer on duty at the convention center.

Used volleyballs will be available for $25 ($20 for Lite balls) at the convention center after the tournament. You can inquire about purchasing one at the championship desk.

Any individual or business wishing to make available any goods and/or services at or in connection with events hosted by the Ohio Valley Region, Inc. must contract those arrangements in advance with Ron Wyzynski, OVR CEO/Executive Director (wyzynski@ovr.org, 888-873-9478) or his designees.

Information and Format

  • Seeding: Seeding for all divisions was done using all information available through the latest possible events. Teams that reported results for 6 or more events only had their best five finishes considered for seeding in all Club divisions. Open teams only had their top 6 finishes considered. Teams will hold their seed into the playoff brackets whenever possible, and we will try to avoid teams playing a team from their pool in the first round of playoffs. Playoffs will consist of 8 teams in most divisions.

  • Rosters: Any changes to the team roster must be submitted to the site director prior to the team’s first match. All rosters must be printed on the back of the Official Lineup Sheet. Rosters will be checked by the officials prior to each team’s first match. Persons not listed on the roster will not be permitted to play.

  • Officiating: Teams are assigned to provide support officiating crews for pool play and playoff matches. Whistles will not be provided. Teams failing to show up on time will be penalized one point in Game 1 of their next match up to 15 points for each minute they are late. They will forfeit their next match if they are more than 15 minutes late. Teams failing to officiate assigned matches after losing in the playoffs will be fined $100.00.

  • Warm-up procedure: All warm-ups will consist of 2 minutes of shared court on the side of the team bench, 4 minutes of full court for the serving team, and 4 minutes of full court for the receiving team. Serving will be included in the 4 minutes. You may ask the official to inform you of your remaining time (usually 1-minute) for serving.

  • Match format for 4 team pools: All matches for 4 team pools will consist of the best 2/3 games. The first two games will be to 25 points. All deciding games will be to 15 points, teams switching sides at 8 points. There will be no cap for any game.

  • Match format for 2 pools of 3 teams: Any division with 2 pools of 3 teams will play a round robin pool play schedule that includes three matches.

  • Pools reduced to 3 teams: Pools reduced to 3 teams without the “crossover” option will play the best 3/5 games (3 games to 25 for youth teams 10- and 12-and-Under).

  • Tie breaker procedure: All ties will be governed by USA Volleyball Tiebreaker Procedure.

  • Awards: Awards will be given to the top four teams in each playoff bracket. There will be no matches to determine third place.

There will be a coaches’ meeting at each site one half hour prior to the first scheduled match.
