When are the National Bid tournaments and How many tournaments do Junior teams have to play to be eligible for the National Bid tournament?

The process the Carolina Region uses to award our region bids to the USA Volleyball National Championships will be based on the Carolina Region Regional Bid Ranking System. Teams will need to submit an application to be considered for a bid by their applicable deadline:
  • 18's teams - March 18, 2024 deadline
  • 12's - 17's teams - April 8, 2024 deadline
All teams that submit an application by the deadline will be ranked based on the Carolina Region Regional Bid Ranking System.  Bids will be awarded to the highest ranked teams. To be eligible to considered for a Region bid in their age group, a junior team must meet the following: (a) Participating teams must be a registered Carolina Region team; and (b) teams must have played in ONE (1) Carolina Region sanctioned event. Teams awarded a bid must follow the USAV JNC entry procedures and submit all JNC entry forms and JNC entry fee to USA Volleyball by the applicable deadline.  Carolina Region bids to the USAV JNC are primarily for ELITE Carolina Region teams that are committed to going to the USAV Junior National Championships if they earn a Region bid. NOTE: Should a team be offered a Region bid based on their placement in the Region Bid Ranking system and choose not to accept the bid, the club will need to pay a sanction fee of $500 to be eligible to participate in the Region Bid Ranking System in a future season. This process is for committed teams only that want to attend the USAV JNC.
