Site Rules

[spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom=”no” pb_border_bottom=”no” width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

Each facility has its own rules, so be prepared. An easy rule of thumb – water only in the gym. Violations of the Food and Drink policies can lead to penalties for teams (even if parents or fans are the violators). Not knowing the policy is not an excuse for breaking it. With over 1200 NCVA teams needing gym space, we cannot afford to lose a facility because our players/parents break facility rules.

DO NOT bring any alcohol or tobacco to NCVA events.
If you have any questions regarding the site that your team has been assigned to, do not contact the school/site directly. Inundating sites with phone calls about tournaments strains our relationships with the facility and may cause the site to stop hosting tournaments. If you have a question about a school/site, you need to email [email protected]

The site rules for ALL NCVA facilities are:

  • NO ALCOHOL is permitted on the premises of any facility – This includes the parking lot, quads/grass areas, gym, etc.
  • No outside food or beverages inside the facility. Water will be allowed when carried individually, not in a cooler.
  • No ice chests, coolers, soft sided coolers, small coolers or large coolers will be allowed inside.
  • No chairs will be allowed inside any facility with hardwood floors.
  • No broken folding chairs, tents, trash left outside the gym or parking lots.
  • Security Guards will be present at all convention centers to enforce site rules
  • Devices, of any kind, that produce heat for any purpose, with or without a flame, that require them to be plugged in and/or use any form of fuel, of any kind, are not permitted on the premises of any facility.
  • No BBQs, propane tanks, generators, chafing dishes, crock pots, slow cookers, candles, bunsen burners, hot pots, hot plates, electric kettles, personal heaters, rice cookers, etc.
  • Warming up, or other activities (with a volleyball or not) are not permitted in the lobby areas and/or spectator walkways at any site.

Penalties for violating these rules are:

  • Tournament Director will impose 13 Point Penalty. The 13 Point Penalty means that in the team’s next set, the score will begin at 0-13, with 13 points automatically awarded to the opposing team.
  • Receive $200 fine
  • Receive last place finish and points, if applicable.
  • Teams may be asked to leave the tournament.

All Sites: The NCVA would like to remind you to make sure you always lock your cars, keep your expensive items out of plain view and keep your personal items within your sight at each facility at all times.
