·        Seeding Tie-breaking: Since all teams advance to playoffs, ties will not be decided by playing a set.

o   1. If 2 teams from the same pool are tied, their head-to-head match determines their order of finish.

o   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.

  • Pool play is the best of three sets with rally scoring. Each non-deciding set will be to 25 points with a minimum two-point advantage (no scoring cap.) The deciding set, if needed, will be to 15 points with a minimum two-point advantage (no scoring cap.)
  • Only USAV members may be in the playing area to assist with warm-ups. All warm-ups will use the 2-4-4 format; 2-minutes shared court, 4-minutes Serving Team, 4-minutes Serve Receiving team. Teams may request the referee to tell them when to serve, usually one minute.
  • All teams advance. All teams must be ranked within their pools based on match percentage first. For any ties, use the tie-breaking procedure above.
  • All first-place and second-place teams to the Gold playoffs. All third-place teams to silver and fourth-place teams to the 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.
  • We award medals to 1st place and 2nd place team – Gold Bracket.

  • A team canceling after the entry deadline, fourteen [14] days prior to the tournament date, will forfeit its entry fee.

  • All team entry fees, in FULL, are required to be returned in a timely manner.
  • When a TEAM must withdraw from an event due to required quarantine/cancellation, the following policy will be enforced. As tournament hosts, we will make every effort to replace the team withdrawing and refund of entry fee will be made possible.
