Tournament Information

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for all teams to compete in this event.  Each division is currently configured for 24 teams, however, it may likely be expanded to accommodate more teams.  When this happens, teams will be added in the order below:

Current 14A "Wait List"
A2 14 Jade
Elevation 14-3
Cincy Crush 14 Orange
KY Synergy 14 Silver

Current 13A "Wait List"

How teams finish in each pool is per USAV Tournament Rules, (head to head, matches winning %, 
ets winning %, point %). If tie is not resolved, tie breaking rules will be revisited again using 
only the results between the tied teams.


Match 1:   1 vs 3  (2 ref)

Match 2:   2 vs 3  (1 ref)

Match 3:   1 vs 2  (3 ref)


Note: After pool play is completed, 1st and 2nd place teams from the second pools advance to 
challenge matches on Sunday morning and then into the Gold and Silver brackets.  
The 3rd place teams advance to challenge matches and then into Bronze and Copper brackets.

Non-OVR teams need to submit a tournament entry form with their entry fee checks.

For non-Ohio Valley Region teams, here is an explanation of our team designations.  The OVR teams are 
divided into three groups:
National - similar to USAV Qualifiers Open and USA Divisions
American - similar to USAV Qualifiers American Division
Regional - teams that typically do not attend qualifiers
