Does our team have to be currently registered with the Carolina Region/USA Volleyball in order to “enter” a tournament?

YES - We are not able to process tournament entries into the Tournament System until the team information is actually in the system already.  Clubs should now register their teams with the region for the current season BEFORE submitting any tournament entries (see adult or junior schedules for posted deadlines). Teams and individuals just have to be registered with current CR/USAV memberships for a specific tournament at least ONE week before participating (see related question in FAQ). Teams and individuals should also keep in mind that they must play in a minimum number of regular season tournaments to be eligible for Regional Championship Events (see related question in FAQ).  Individual players must play in two (2) tournaments to be eligible to participate in a Regional Championship event. Team rosters for all divisions are frozen 7 days before any Regional Championship event.
