Event Policy

This event is sanctioned and insured by North Country Region–USA Volleyball (NCR-USAV).

ALL TEAMS PARTICIPATING IN ANY NCR-USAV SANCTIONED EVENT MUST BE CURRENT USAV MEMBERS.  Club directors, coaches and players must be individual USAV members in good standing and must have completed all membership requirements prior to the final tournament registration deadline date in order to participate in the event.  Teams that do not meet these requirements may need to withdraw from the event and are subject to the tournament’s refund policies.

Acceptance
Acceptance into a North Country Region Tournament is first come, first served once all registration requirements are completed and is always contingent on space availability. To be accepted into a tournament, teams must satisfy the following criteria: 

1. Be USAV members (see above)
2. Register for tournament on AES
3. Submit entry fee payment by check - a $40 fee will be charged for all returned checks
4. Submit team roster on AES

Once a division is full, teams not accepted will be placed on a waiting list in order of registration and payment received.  Note – registration does not guarantee acceptance.

• Accepted: team has paid entry fee and has submitted roster that has been approved
• Waitlisted: team has paid entry fee and has submitted a roster by that deadline date; however the division is full at the present time
• Pending: team has registered but has not paid entry fee

NCR-USAV reserves the right to combine similar age groups/levels if registrations deem it necessary.

Housing or Stay to Save
If applicable, housing information will be given to PAID and ACCEPTED teams only. Utilizing North Country Region secured hotels supports local businesses that in turn support our volleyball community.  We recommend teams make their hotel reservations as early as possible. 

Roster Disclaimer

Team roster submissions must be completed through AES by the roster deadline designated by the tournament.  An additional fee may be charged for late rosters.

All teams are additionally required to turn in a printed and signed copy of their AES team roster at the designated team check-in location at the time posted on the tournament's website. Once the AES team roster is submitted at check-in, no changes can be made and the roster will be considered frozen for the entirety of the event.  Any exceptions must be approved by NCR-USAV officials.

We highly encourage that the contact information included on the roster is a coach on-site at the tournament as we use this information to contact the team for any emergency updates during the event.
