Tournament Information

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for all teams to compete in this event.  This division is currently configured for 36 teams, however, it may likely be expanded to accommodate more teams.  When this happens, teams will be added in the order below:

Current 12U "Wait List"
NKJV 11 White
Cincy East 12-2
Cincy East 11-1
NKJV 12 Nat Select Black

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 3:   1 vs 2  (3 ref)
