Seeding & Seeding Appeals

Seeding

The California Kickoff Tournament will be seeded from the same age group from the 2019-2020 season.

Example: Your club has a 16-1 team playing in the 2021-2022 season and you had a 14-1 team that played in the 2019-2020 season, then the 14-1 results will be used.

Although: If your club has a 16-1 team playing in the 2021-2022 season but did not have a 14-1 team in 2019-2020, this 16-1 team would be considered an “unseeded” team.

Going into Power League after California Kickoff

All unseeded teams will be re-seeded by the NCVA for a final seeding of the Power League Qualifier for 2021-2022.

Teams wishing to use their California Kickoff Results for seeding into the Power League seeded teams must participate in the Open Division. California Kickoff Head-to-Head Results for teams participating in the Club Division will only move their team within the unseeded teams.

Team Rosters

Rosters are open for editing until 9:00 PM, Saturday, January 1, 2022.

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.

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.

Reservations for housing will open Thursday, November 18, 2021 9:00 AM PST.
