USAV requires that a rostered adult must be the R2 for all age divisions at National Qualifying events such as this event. Extra 15 American Teams: Entry fee is $250 US per team. Please write your entry fee check payable to: OVR And mail to: Al Herbert 4440 Merlin Drive Uniontown, OH 44685-9641 Checks should be mailed by January 15, 2018. Checks are not deposited until the weekend of the event. If you are entering teams in multiple events, you may want to send a separate check per event. Coaches Meeting at 7:30 am. First matches are at 8:00 am. Registration for teams will remain open until March 1st. At that time I will not accept any more registrations unless there is space. Only the top twelve 15 American and twelve 14 American teams ranked teams (as of Tuesday, March 13th) 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 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.
