All other teams will be playing in the elimination rounds on Sunday 1/28. The 30 teams will be placed into 2 pools of 3 teams with a cross-over match. Each teamʻs finish on this date will determine itʻs qualification into the 2018 Power League (PL#1) starting on 2/25/18.
All matches will be best of 3 sets to 25 points, win by 2 points with no point cap. Deciding set (If necessary) will be to 15 points (switch sides at 8 points), win by 2 points with no point cap. Each team will have two 30 second timeouts per set. Warmups will be 2 minutes shared, 4 minutes serving team, 4 minutes receiving team.
Pool finish will be determined by
1. Match Percentage
2. Set percentage
3. Point differential
Ties will be determined by the following criteria
2 teams - Head to head results will determine the order of finish
3 teams - If the teams are still tied after match and set percentage and point differential, a card draw will determine the place of finish.

Rosters must be printed from Webpoint, signed and submitted at the coaches meeting at 1/7/18. No handwritten rosters will be accepted. Rosters of all teams will be frozen after the first tournament starts as to keep the competitive balance of each team in the league. All players/coaches must be registered in USAV for the 17-18 season. Only registered players and adults on the roster will be allowed in the bench area of the tournament. Per USAV Guidelines, there must be at least one (1) IMPACT certified coach/adult on the bench at all times. Adults (Coaches, Chaperones, etc.) may be added to the roster at later dates. Please print out a new roster to reflect these changes and bring it to the next tournament date. Officials will be checking for compliance.
Uniforms are not required until the end of the month, however numbered jerseys are required. Also, if libero(s) are to be utilized, they will NEED to be in contrasting colors from the rest of the team. (Note: Uniform numbers may be written in to match the uniform of player until official uniforms are required. NO DUPLICATE NUMBERS ALLOWED)
