Tournament Information

This event is cancelled!!!



Elevation 17 Goller won the 18 USA Division at the Music City 18s Qualifier.  They now have to go to Reno for the USAV Girls 18s JNC.  They want to upgrade to an 18 National Bid.  If they finish 1st or 2nd, their USA Bid will trickle down to the 3rd place team.

Registration is closed.

Motion passed by the Board of Directors on 6/1/2019, beginning with the 2020 USAV National Championships, (to receive entry fee reimbursement) OVR teams that earn a bid for the USAV National Championships must participate in two OVR-sanctioned events; one of which must be either an OVR Bid Tournament or the OVR Regional Championships

USAV requires that a rostered adult must be the R2 for all age divisions at National Qualifying events such as this event.

Since this is a qualifying event, club directors decided not to move teams from the same club out of the same initial pool.

Accepting or Declining a National Bid: A team may immediately decline a National Bid with no penalty once they have earned it. The National Bid will then trickle down to the next eligible team. Accepting or Declining an American Bid: A team may immediately decline an American Bid with no penalty once they have earned it. The American Bid will then trickle down to the next eligible team.

Entry fee is $275 US per team. Please write your entry fee check payable to: OVR

Doors open at 7:30 am.  Coaches Meeting at 8 am. First matches are at 8:30 am.

Registration for teams will remain open until February 1st. At that time I will not accept any more registrations unless there is space.

Only the top fifteen 18 National teams and one 18 Regional Team ranked team (as of Tuesday, March 3rd) of the teams registered will participate. This is NOT a first-come first-served event. The other teams will receive refunds.

This tournament is restricted to Ohio Valley Region teams only. This is a special tournament for OVR 18 National and one 18 Regional teams. The top two finishers earn a spot in the USAV National Division of the Girls 18s Junior National Championships in Reno, NV on May 1-3. The next three finishers will earn spots kid in the American Division.  We are 4th in line for a 4th American Bid.

This 18s Bid Tournament is only open to teams serious about playing in the USAV Girls 18s JNC. Do not enter this tournament if you are not willing to participate in the USAV Girls 18s JNC. If you earn a spot in the JNC and do not participate, your club may not be allowed to participate in qualifying tournaments the next season.
