Each team must turn in a paper copy of their SportsEngine Governing Seasons roster to the tournament desk prior to their first match. AES rosters are not required to be uploaded. There are no formal coaches' meetings. See an example of a legal roster here.
Work teams are expected to provide an R2, table crew, and line judges. An R1 will be provided on all matches. Coaches must either serve as the R2, or be courtside, for all work assignments.
Please do not plan to set up camp areas at the facility. There are limited concessions at Bob Keefer Center. One or two food trucks may be available. Outside food and drink will be allowed only in the Ken Long Room. Water only in the gyms. Teams are subject to point deductions for violations of facility policies. Read more information on our Facilities page.
The Purple Card Policy will be in effect at this event. Please read about the policy on our website and educate your club about the policy. This policy will be in place at all CEVA-hosted events in the 2022-2023 season.
Teams are encouraged to show their red/white/blue spirit throughout the weekend. Jerseys and personal equipment of players & coaches may not be of a political nature (e.g., advertising a political candidate). You may not use glitter or anything else that may get on the floor. Numbers must still be visible and within regulations. Liberos must still be in clearly contrasting colors.

Entry fee is set at $525.00 per team. Payments are accepted through AES and are a requirement of acceptance. There is a processing fee associated with payments that does not come to CEVA.
The CEVA office does not have access to the individual AES accounts of clubs. It is your responsibility to understand how to access AES and how to register for events. The CEVA office also does not control the technical capabilities of the AES system.
Teams who cancel their registration by 3:00 PM on Wednesday, January 18 will be entitled to a full refund. Teams who cancel their registration after that date, for any reason, will receive no refund.
Acceptance is based on the timestamp of your registration in AES and if you have paid the registration fee.
This tournament accepts payments on an "OK To Pay" model.
If a team registers and they fall within the tournament capacity, AES will change the team’s status from “Pending” to “OK To Pay." This will open up the payment portal. Once this status changes, you will have 48 hours to submit payment. Once payment is submitted, your status will be changed to “Accepted.” Failure to submit payment within 48 hours results in the registration being rejected and the team being moved to the end of the waiting list.
Registration for events is still first-come, first-served. The timestamp of your registration in AES still matters under this policy.
Both the 14s and 16s divisions will be tentatively capped at 40 teams.
