CEVA BID TOURNAMENT


EXPLAINER

This tournament is intended for teams who wish to compete for a bid to USAV Girls' National Championships.  Clubs should only register teams for this event if they are intending to participate in these National events.  Ensure you understand the bid acceptance requirements outlined on this page prior to registering.

DATES

All ages will be played on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

QUALIFICATIONS

Junior Handbook requirements indicate that the highest ranked 4 or 8 teams in Power League (depending on the age group) will qualify for the Bid Tournament.  Rankings are determined as follows:

11s/12s - determined after PL #1 on 1/29/22
13s/14s - determined after PL #1 on 2/12/22
15s/16s - determined after PLQ #2 on 2/6/22
17s/18s - determined after PL #1 on 2/5/22

If the PL schedule changes, these determination dates may change as well.


FORMAT

12s, 13s, 15s, 17s - Pool play only.
14s, 16s, 18s - 8-team bracket play
If numbers change from 4 or 8 teams, format will be adjusted per guidelines in the Junior Girls' Handbook.


REGISTRATION

Registration for the Bid Tournament will be done via AES, and will open on Monday, November 8th at 9:00 AM.  Note that more teams will be allowed to register than capacity allows (see note on this page regarding tournament capacity).  Teams will not be asked to pay for the tournament entry fee until they are accepted.  Deadline for registration is 3:00 PM on January 28th, 2022.


TEAM CAPS

12s, 13s, 15s, 17s will be capped at 4 teams per division.
14s, 16s, 18s will be capped at 8 teams per division.


ENTRY FEE/PAYMENTS

Entry fees will be $150 per team for the 3- or 4-team divisions, and $200 per team for the 8-team divisions.  Clubs will not be able to pay for the event in AES until they qualify.  Once they qualify for the tournament officially, a team's status in AES will be switched to "OK To Pay" and that will serve as notice that the team has qualified and payment is due.

Payments for teams who qualify for the tournament are due by 3:00 PM on Friday, February 18, 2022.


BID ACCEPTANCE

Teams are obligated to accept a bid should they earn it.  In the event a team earns a higher bid at a later date or already has a higher bid, an earned/accepted bid at this tournament will trickle-down to the next highest finisher.  Accepted bids may still trickle down.  Teams who do not earn a bid at our Bid Tournament will be placed on a waiting list to accept a trickle-down in-region bid later in the year.  The waiting list will be populated in order of finish (i.e., the third place team in the Bid Tournament will be the first team on the waiting list to earn a trickle-down bid).  Teams who are asked later in the year if they want to accept a bid through the trickle-down process are not required to accept.  If a bid is earned and accepted at the Bid Tournament, the club director must present a check for the GJNC entry fee to the CEVA staff member on site.  CEVA will send that check, on behalf of the club, to USAV on the Monday following the tournament.
