There will be a 10-minute (2-4-4) warm up for each team’s first match only (if you are competing against a team that is playing for the first time in pool play you will still have a 10 min warm up even if you have already competed.)

Division/Seed breakdown and placement in playoffs will be decided by:

  1. Head to Head   5. Coin Flip

Officiating

All teams are responsible for providing their own officiating equipment. For playoffs: The WINNING TEAM of the FIRST round of playoffs will officiate the next playoff match on that court. Thereafter the LOSING TEAM is obligated to stay and officiate. Any team late for an officiating assignment and/or competition will be penalized.  These teams will lose a point for every minute they are late. Please check with the site director before you leave to make sure your team has no further officiating duties. No cell phones are allowed while line judging or scorekeeping - cell phones will be taken away if reported.  In our region, coaches (or an adult registered with USAV who has been to an officials’ clinic) will be required to control the match as one of the referees within all age groups.   Coaches and players are required to attend an officials’ clinic before officiating.  The officiating team must provide an R1 (first referee), R2 (second referee), scorekeeper, libero tracker, scoreboard operator, and 2 line judges.  If team members need a refresher on how to keep score, there is an on-line power point presentation/tutorial at http://www.ncrusav.org/ncrofficials/scoreclinic.asp
