Only the top twelve 15 American and twelve 14 American teams

This tournament is restricted to Ohio Valley Region teams only.

This is a special tournament for 15 American and 14 American
Division teams to earn a spot in the OVR National Bid Tournament. 
The OVR National Bid Tournament is normally restricted to just
teams registered as National Division teams.  This Play-In
Tournament allows Regional and American teams to try to earn a
spot in the Bid Tournament.  The top two teams from this event are
guaranteed a spot in the Bid Tournament.  If more spots are
available in the Bid Tournament then the 3rd and 4th place teams
may also be invited to play in the Bid Tournament.

This Play-In Tournament is only open to teams serious about
playing in the Bid Tournament.  Do not enter this tournament if
you are not willing to participate in the Bid Tournament.  If you
earn a spot in the Bid Tournament and do not participate, your
club may not be allowed to participate in the Play-In Tournament
the next season.

Teams earning spots into the OVR National Bid Tournament will pay
a reduced entry fee of $560 instead of the usual $610.  That is
because you paid $250 to enter this Play-In Tournament which is
higher than the normal $200 fee.

All four Play-In Tournaments are considered one event.  So a
player may participate for only one team across both weekends.

Grade-level teams are not allowed into this event.  Your team must
be age appropriate for the division you enter.

There is a State of Ohio law that requires all coaches and administrators of juniors sports teams to have concussion certifications. Here is a link to the NFHS course in Concussion in Sports

Some seating is provided. You may also bring your own folding chair. Outside food is not allowed into the facility. OhioNets will be hosting a concession stand for participants and spectators. Personal coolers must be left in your vehicles. If severe weather is expected, please watch this space for updates.
