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.

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 opens on November 30, 2021 at 9am PST / 12 noon EST
More details coming soon!

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.
