*Officiating teams will have to provide a down official (R2), a scorekeeper, a libero tracker, a flip-scorer, and 2 line judges. The R2 and Scorekeeper should report to the court official at the coin toss. If they are not present by the beginning of the first timed warm-up then one point will be given to their next opponent,and one point will continue to be given for every minute that they are late. The rest of the support crew (line judges, scoreboard operator and libero tracker) must report to the court official no later than the beginning of the second timed warm-up or a point will be given to their next opponent. An additional point will be given for every minute that the work crew is incomplete for their officiating duties. If no additional matches are to be played in that tournament, the tournament director shall file an incident report with the OVR commissioner and a $50 fine shall be imposed.
All teams advance.
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 the Silver playoffs. All 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. First and second place in the Gold division will be given awards.
There will be a full concession stand and bleacher seating.
Tournament Cancellation Policy
In the event of a Level 3 Emergency in Erie County we will follow the OVR Tournament Cancellation Policy:
a. Tournament directors should make a timely decision and notify club directors, coaches, and officials of any change to a tournament’s status.
b. If a tournament site is in a location where the local authorities have issued a “no travel” order, the tournament director shall honor that request and cancel the tournament.
c. A team which originates in a county of a “no travel” order and not in attendance at a tournament with no travel restrictions will be given a full refund of its entry fee.
