Tournament Format: Each division will be originally seeded based on previous tournament results and will then be put into pools of 3,4 or 5 based off the seeding and number of teams in each division. The divisions will be power pooled from the beginning, and seedings will be sent out prior to the tournament for feedback from all coaches and clubs. Teams will play one round of pool play, and then teams will reseed and play another complete round of pool play. After the second round, teams will enter playoffs based on their current standings single elimination play will begin. Each team is guaranteed eight matches, and losing teams are expected to stay and work the next match once playoffs have begun. All teams should assume play starts at 8am on both days of play in all locations. VolleyFX will do its best to release out of town teams from their work duties if the opportunity presents itself. Pools and brackets will be posted on this page as the tournament gets closer.
Tournament Details: As we get closer to the tournament date, all information that is needed will be sent out to clubs via email and posted to this webpage. We will have the locations, addresses, tournament format documents and information for Canadian teams on this page.
