Seeding

Seeding for the  KRVA National Bid Qualifier, Keystone Challenge, and KRVA Regional Championship will be based on all tournament results reported and verified through the Monday preceding each tournament. Seeding will be based on the coefficient of the top 4 finishes. Ties will be broken by the average points of the top 4 finishes. If a team competes in less than 4 events, they will be counted as zeros.

No points shall be awarded for events following the KRVA Regional Championships.

USAV Qualifiers, Boston Volleyball Festival, and Capital Hill Classic results must be reported by the Club Director within 48 hours of the conclusion of the event. If the event is the weekend preceding a KRVA Region event (Bid, Club Challenge, or Championships), the results are still due by Monday at 12 PM.

Results will NOT be accepted from anyone other than the Club Director.

KRVA tournament directors are strongly encouraged to use these rankings to seed their own events.

Points of Note

  1. If a team plays in the next higher age division (e.g. 14’s team plays in a 15’s tournament), regardless of their finish they will receive 1 point for that tournament
  2. On the team results, there are two columns of points:
    • Total Points — The total points a team has earned from playing in KRVA and select USAV sanctioned events in their top 4 finishes
    • Average Points — This is used for tie breakers for KRVA National Bid Qualifier, KRVA Club Challenge, and KRVA Regional Championship seeding. A teams top 4 finishes are used.
  3. All requests for verification of team’s results must come through a Club director or coach of that team. Requests will NOT be accepted from
    • Players

  4. Levels for certain tournaments may be designated as “adjusted”. Contact results@krva.org for the circumstances leading to any of those adjustments.
