Tournament Information

Registration closes February 29th.  Teams cannot change divisions after that date.  Late entries only allowed if there is space open.

This tournament acceptance is based on OVR ranking as of Tuesday noon, April 2nd.  If this event gets over-subscribed in any division, then see below for the number of highest ranked National teams as of April 2nd will participate.. 

Club Directors do Team Check-In via AES.  No OVR check-in.

Coaches pick up wrist bands at table near ticket window.

Players do not need bands.  They should be under 19 years of age.

When you earn a Bid, you will be required to sign an Acceptance Form.  Please review this document proir to attending the Bid Tournament.  Pay attention to the penalty section if you first Accept a Bid and then later Decline the Bid. 

The teams are ranked in order of the average of their top four finishes.  NOT their total average.  If they played in more than four tournaments, their lower results are dropped.  You can see their four results average on the Seeding Page.

This is a three day event.  Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 14.

This event is restricted of OVR teams only.

 

USAV requires that a rostered adult must be the R2 for all age divisions at National Qualifying events such as this event.

 

This tournament uses each team's best 4 finishes. So the ranking numbers you see in the pool displays below are not what was used in the seeding. Once the seeding is completed, teams from the same club will be switched out of a pool to avoid playing another team from the same club in the first round of pools. This was the consensus of the National Club Directors.

 

This tournament used to allocate the Ohio Valley Region's National, American and Freedom bids to the USAV Girls Junior National Championships to be hosted by Chicago and Minneapolis. Entry into this event is restricted to only OVR registered teams. All OVR teams registered in the National Divisions are eligible to enter.  We will do our best to accept all teams that register by February 29th. But space and court restrictions may force use to a limited number in particular divisions. We will know more after the registration period ends on 2/29/2024.

 

 Seeding for the OVR Bid Tournament will use an average of up to the four best tournament results for each team.  Once the seeding is completed, teams from the same club will be switched out of a pool to avoid playing another team from the same club in the first round of pools.

 

Since this is a qualifying event for the USAV girls National Championships, we will not be using a 2 meter step-in line for the 12s or 11s divisions.

 

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
