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 National Bid tournament for the 18's age group will be held on Sunday, February 27, 2022. The National Bid for the 12's - 17’s age groups will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2022. To be eligible to compete in their age division’s National Bid tournament, 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 competing for 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 (still TBD - check back for updates). In addition, all teams must also submit their tournament entry of $175 to the Carolina Region by the applicable tournament entry deadline. The National Bid tournaments are primarily for ELITE Carolina Region teams that are committed to going to the USAV Junior National Championships if they earn a Region bid. This is not a regular tournament, so only committed teams should enter.
