Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What time do events start?

Answer: All of the VolleyNation events begin check-in at 7:30am.  This is accomplished by email, so you do not need to be at the tournament site that early!  The tournament director will call for all teams at 9am, and will then do a quick rules recap before assigning pools and courts for each division.  We recommend arriving between 8:15am - 8:45am to have time to setup your relaxing area, say hi to some friends, and maybe pepper a bit.

What is the tournament format?

Answer: Each event is a standalone one-day tournament.  The tournament format is pool play followed by bracket play.  All teams qualify for bracket play, which usually starts between 1pm - 2pm.  Pool play is used to determine seeding going into bracket.  Bracket play is single elimination, with losing teams typically required to ref the following round at the court they lost on.

How do I register for an event?

Answer: We use the web service of Volleyball Life to register and run our events.  Navigate to, or click the button in the upper right corner that looks like this:                                       Use the menus to navigate to the event and click on the registration tab to register!  If you have any questions, reach out to us and we will help guide you to make sure you're signed up!

I can't play.  Can I get a refund/sub someone?

Answer: We always prefer subs rather than refunds because we want your team to still come! Changing out a player can be accomplished on your team page at  If you cannot figure out how to change the player, contact us and we will help you out!

If your team still cannot play, we offer full refunds up to 24 hours before the event start.  If you withdraw your team, you will be fully refunded.  Or, contact us and we can help.
