Teams will officiate according to the above schedule for pool play.
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 and second-place teams to the Gold playoffs. All third-place teams to silver playoffs and fourth-place teams to bronze playoffs. 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. Prizes will be awarded to 1stplace and 2ndplace in Gold.
Coaches and players who are not complete with their registration will not be permitted to participate in OVR Sanctioned events.
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 the
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.
Only USAV members may be in the playing area to assist with warm-ups. Teams must provide warm up volleyballs.
Prior to each team's first match of the day, juniors’ boys'/girls' mandatory warm-ups are to consist of 15 minutes (7 minutes shared, no hitting across net), 4 minutes serving team, 4 minutes receiving team. After each team's first match, the mandatory warm-up time between all matches will be 10 minutes, consisting of 2 minutes of shared ball handling on-court, 4 minutes full-court for the serving team, and 4 minutes full-court for the receiving team.
During each team's full-court warm-up segment, the opposing team must be in their bench area and not interfere with the team using the court. However, for purposes of risk management, the off team could offer to help with retrieving balls when the on team is hitting provided the "on-team" coach agrees.
Teams that wish to practice serving during the warm-ups may ask to be informed when they have one minute (or more/less) remaining in their 4-minute period. Shared serving between the two teams is not permitted.
This applies to all matches. The time between sets is 3 minutes. Teams may warm up with balls on their respective courts or free zone during the 3-minute set intervals. Spiking at the net is not permitted. Balls may not be used for warm-ups during time-outs.
A concession stand with a variety of foods is available at the tournament site. NO OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED. - Individual portions are allowed in a player's bag. Keep all coolers in cars. Coolers are prohibited in and outside facilities hosting OVR-sanctioned events. Setting up tables and/or cooking by teams or their support staff, fans, coaches, or parents are prohibited at OVR-sanctioned events. This means NO TEAM BUFFETS.
Bleachers and areas to place folding chairs will be marked. There will be at least 1 set of bleachers at each court of play as well as a designated area for folding chairs.
