Seeding

Points for seeding KRVA National Bid Qualifier, KRVA Club Challenge, and KRVA Regional Championship events are earned only by participating in KRVA and select USAV sanctioned events.

Seeding for these Regional events will be based on all tournament results reported and verified no later than 12 PM the Monday prior to each KRVA event.

Tournament Directors are required to submit their results by 5 pm on the Monday following their event.

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
    • Average Points — This is used for tie breakers for KRVA National Bid Qualifier, KRVA Club Challenge, and KRVA Regional Championship seeding
  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
    • Parents.
    • Club director or coach asking to verify any other teams or clubs results other than their own
  4. Levels for certain tournaments may be designated as “adjusted”. Contact results@krva.org for the circumstances leading to any of those adjustments.
