Out of region teams need to submit an OVR Tournament Entry form.
Team withdrawal causes loss of the entry fee unless a fully paid replacement team is entered.
There will not be a coaches' meeting prior to the start of the tournament. Coaches will verify team rosters online at the OVR website. If a change needs to be made to the roster, a coach can provide an updated roster when they check-in Friday or Saturday, the first day of the tournament. Roster changes cannot be made once a team starts their first match.
Work Team Protocols
Teams will have to supply a down official, 2 line judges, an official scorer, a Libero tracker and score flipper for the matches they are required to officiate. A coach must be present at the Scorer's table. Please have the work team available court side at the coin toss for the next match. Each work team is to provide a whistle for the down official, pens and pencils for score table duties.
At the completion of the match, please remove all pens and pencils. Be sure the coaches pickup their lineup sheets. Teams are responsible for clean-up of their bench area. The court official and /or Tournament assistants will be responsible for any match papers. All spectators are to leave the viewing area unless their team is playing in the next match.
