There were several changes made today, and there might be a few more. Please be sure to check the schedule again late Friday night and early Saturday morning. Please pass along any updates to your teams.


Each location has specific rules regarding food tables, seating, parking, etc. Click here for details.
Be sure to follow directions from all facility and tournament staff.
14U CHANGE: Due to team drops, we are no longer using North Springs Park for 14U. All 14U teams will be at Flight/Plex.



All matches start at zero EXCEPT the one five team pool that we have will start at 6 for each game. 

Matches are best of three except the five team pool plays only 2 sets.

Pool play matches will have a 2-point cap. 

Playoff brackets will start at zero. No cap.

We reserve the right to modify formats.




Coaches and teams, we need your help. Due to a shortage with officials this weekend, many sites will only have 1 official for 2 courts. 

There are a couple of locations that will be fully staffed. 

For locations with only 1 official, this official will officiate 2 matches on one court, take a break, ref 2 matches on the other court, and then officiate play-offs for the higher divisions. 

Coaches, please be prepared to provide an R1 from your team in addition to your normal work crew.


Since this is a POWER tournament, each coach should USE his/her best work crew. 

Please remind your teams about the importance of doing a good job officiating.

A rostered adult MUST be court side in case of an issue. 

Be sure to start warm-ups immediately after each match and to check proper completion of the score sheets. 



We understand the officials shortage is not ideal, but Luis, the PVA officials chair, has done his best to fill officials this weekend. 

He is just having a harder time due to spring break for our younger officials. Thank you for your help. We truly appreciate your assistance.



Adults $10 per day
Children 5-17  $7 per day
Children 0-4 FREE






Saturday 2/19 (BEFORE 8:10 AM)


Bring three copies of your USAV rosters (NOT AES).

Coaches submit one roster at team check-in.

Wristbands for all rostered adults will be provided to the head coach ONLY, or the rep checking in the team. 

Assistants and/or team reps get the wristbands from your coaches.

Rostered members must wear the designated wristband AND present their USAV membership card and a valid photo ID upon entry.
