TEAM ENTRY INFORMATION
Registration will open at 8am PST on October 1, 2022.
Team entry fees are $900 for all teams, except 11 National (if there are enough teams entered to warrant a division). This division is $600 per team.
No refunds will be given after January 1, 2023 unless the tournament is forced to change dates/cancel due to COVID-19 restrictions or guidelines. Once a team has paid and submitted hotel information, acceptance will be noted in SportWrench if space is available. If space is not available, teams will be notified via email of an alternate opening, or will be placed on a waitlist.
All coaches must be IMPACT certified in order to participate in a National Qualifier. There will be no IMPACT clinic available, so please take care of this prior to arrival.
All teams must provide a certified scorekeeper, R2 (rostered adult), and two linespersons for each match that they officiate.
During a team’s officiating duties, an adult listed on their roster must be AT THE SCORE TABLE during the entire match.
This tournament is one of USA Volleyball’s national qualifying tournaments and is governed by the rules set forth by them. It is a mandated 3-day tournament.
In the USA. Liberty, National & American divisions, the first two days are pool play, with the third being single-elimination bracket play. (Depending on the size of the field, some adaptations may be made to accommodate odd numbers.) In the Open divisions, challenge matches may follow pool play on the first two days, and some brackets may participate in pool play on the final day. *Typically AM Wave begins at 8 am, PM at 3:00 pm.
Bids to the GJNC are awarded in every division at the PNQ, so foreign teams are not allowed to participate.
All Open bids are determined by the number of teams in the division. The Qualifier Manual has this information.
Please refer to the Girls National Championship Manual for more information on number of bids, priority of bid use, trickle down process, etc. **TIE-BREAKING PROCEDURES
Since it cannot be determined where a team will finish, teams should not plan to travel until the evening on the third day of play. No match is scheduled later than 3 pm on the final day. **It is recommended that airline tickets be scheduled no earlier than 5:30 pm.
*No roster changes may be made once a team has commenced play.*
