*Due to requests for division changes in various age groups, which we always try to accommodate, and other team movement, we have reassigned the 15 USA division from the AM wave to the PM wave on the first day of play on Week 2 of Far Westerns. This puts the USA teams for all the age groups together in the PM wave on the first day, which is a preferred arrangement for college coaches recruiting at the tournament.

Prime Division

The Prime Division is a non-qualifying division at the Far Western. This division was established when the Girls Junior National Championships for the 18 and under divisions was separated out from the Summer Girls Junior National Championships. In order to provide all 18s teams an opportunity to participate in the Far Western in a competitive division, the Prime and Select Divisions were formed.

The Prime Division is the higher level of competition, similar to how Open is higher level than USA at a Qualifier.

Select Division

The Select Division is a non-qualifying division at the Far Western. Previously known as the 18 No Dinx Division, it was renamed the 18 Select Division when the 18 Prime division was added.

The Select Division is the lower level of competition, similar to how USA is a lower level than Open at a Qualifier.

The NoDinx / NCVA Far Western National Qualifier will follow the USA Volleyball procedure for breaking ties to determine a Pool Finish.

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.
