PA Farm Show and Expo Center | Harrisburg, PA

Teams will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Teams with all of their requirements fulfilled will be accepted first. The requirements include: Entry form and fee received, preliminary roster entered into AES, and GJNC entry form sent to results@krva.org (if competing in the National Bid Qualifier). Once a division is full, all teams not accepted will be placed on the waiting list in order of requirements completed.

The Girls National Bid Tournament is open to KRVA TEAMS ONLY. The club challenge is open to both KRVA and out of region teams. Teams competing in the bid must send their GJNC entry form to results@krva.org before acceptance. 

Any KRVA team is allowed to enter the National Bid Tournament; however, KRVA reserves the right to recommend a change of tournament from the National Bid Qualifier to the Club Challenge. The recommendations will be based on the level of the team according to region and national rankings and will be suggested in order to keep the Bid tournament competition as strong as possible. 

Teams are ranked based on results from KRVA Sanctioned events, National Qualifiers, and other select USAV sanctioned events. Results from events sanctioned by other affiliations will NOT be considered. Please visit the KRVA Ranking System for full details.

KRVA reserves the right to adjust the maximum number of teams accepted to each division based on space and the needs of the tournament.
