Hotels - Support the Sport

Help us Support the Sport!
Volleyball tournaments such as these require a lot of space – and that means Convention Centers. But there is great deal of competition for those spaces and it can be impossible to get the space needed for our events on popular weekends unless we demonstrate to host cities the clear benefits our events bring to their local economies.
 
For your benefit and ours, we’ve partnered with Tournament Housing Services (THS). THS helps teams by getting them access to better room rates, making it more convenient for teams to manage their hotel reservations, coordinate room blocks (e.g. keeping room assignments close together), manage occupant lists, etc. THS benefits the NCVA by helping us demonstrate our positive impact on local economies and guarantee the success of future events.
 
Help us Support the Sport – book your accommodations through our housing partner, THS.

Housing Reservations are now open – book your rooms today!

Check In

Check-in at the Tournament Desk in the Main Lobby of the Santa Clara Convention Center Friday January 7th, 2022 4:00pm – 8:00pm

Team Check-In:

  • Please check in online in TM2Sign.
  • Make sure to have all COVID-19 requirements for everyone on your Roster. That means proof of vaccination or proof of negative Covid-19 test result. 
  • One person per team is allowed to approach the Tournament Desk to pick up the team bag during the hours above.

Guest Registration:

Families and attendees may check in with their proof of vaccination or proof of negative Covid-19 test results to pick up wristbands for the event as well. Save time and check-in Friday to make your Saturday morning arrival smooth. 

Rosters

Rosters are open for editing until 9:00 PM, Monday, December 25, 2021

Building your rosters requires use of both SportsEngine and TM2

Step 1: SportsEngine

Confirm that all your players/coaches on your roster are assigned to your club.

  • In your “Directory” search for each Player and Coach.
  • Click on their name, then click “Memberships”
  • You should see your Club Name in their Memberships. If you do not see your club name, you will need to send them a club assignment request. You cannot build your roster in TM2 until all players and coaches are members of your club in SportsEngine.

Step 2: TM2

Once all of your players and coaches are members of your Club in SportsEngine, you can build your rosters in TM2.

  • Click your “Members” tab.
    • Click “Import member”.
    • Click the big green button.
  • Once the members are imported, start building your roster by searching  the names of your players and coaches.
    • Please note, if you have previously built your roster, you need to delete it and start fresh.
    • There may be multiple accounts for each person that will populate; be sure to choose the account that says “Has USAV Membership” in green.
  • Once you have your rosters built, click on “Validate”, and the system should validate your roster.

If you complete these steps and TM2 is still flagging players/coaches, it is because they are missing a requirement in SportsEngine like SafeSport, Waivers, Background, etc. There are some rare cases where you have everything, and it still flags them. That is an SE internal system issue at that point.
