Member Registration Information
The Member Registration Information has been updated.  Check out the Individual registration discounts available to members registering online.

Uniform Requirements
All players must wear a jersey with a number. Jerseys do not need to match but numbers should be non duplicated front and back. If a team does not have matching uniforms then the Libero should not have a number so they are easier to identify. Since the libero is the only player that does not need a number, if a player does not have a number they will be designated as the Libero.

Tournament Formats
One pool for one division: The top four teams to playoffs and  has 3 playoff rounds on the one court; no playoff game for teams tied for  4th place
Two pools for one division: The top three teams advance from  each pool and has 3 playoff rounds on 2 courts, no  playoffs game for teams tied for 3rd place
Three pools for one division: The top two teams advance to  playoffs from each pool and has 3 playoff rounds on 2  courts. The 3rd place team in each pool advances to a separate  consolation bracket with 2 playoff rounds on the third court. There is not a  playoff game for teams tied for 3rd place.
Four pools for one division: The top two teams advance to  playoffs from each pool and has 3 playoff rounds using  4 courts the first round and then 2. The 3rd place team in each pool  advances to a separate consolation playoff bracket with 2 playoff rounds that  uses 2 courts after the first playoff round. The 3rd place teams officiate the first round of regular playoffs. There is  not a playoff game for teams tied for 3rd place.

These formats  will allow for the maximum number of teams to advance and still finish around  the 7 PM time. This is  not a guarantee that tournaments will not finish earlier or later than 7 PM.  Pools with multiple divisions may use other options for playoffs--for instance  divisions mixed with AA and A teams. Playoff advancement would be determined by  the number of teams from each division and the number of courts.

Tie Breaker process:
1. Head to head play for all teams tied  starting with games played against each other and then point differential  against each other.
2. Overall point  differential
