2022 Tournament Procedures & Modified Scoresheet Video Instructions
Rules and Interpretations
Click this link to access the governing rules and guidelines for the rule set used at the Midwest Fiesta. The "Abridged USAV Rulebook" is much easier to read than the unabridged version. Please download a copy and have it with you on your phone/tablet during the event.
Because of the 3 match wave format that is being used at the NorthStar President's Day Challenge, there will not be work teams assigned for any match. We will again be using the simplified scoresheet developed by MVOA last year for this event. Please watch the video for instructions on the usage of this sheet.
Use the playing captains to bring scoresheets back/forth from their coaches so you do not need to go up/down the stand during the match.
NOTE: at the bottom of the scoresheet there is a space to put the Court #, Match Time, and winning/losing teams. FILL IN THESE BOXES AT THE START OF THE MATCH SO THAT THE SITE DIRECTOR CAN RECORD SCORES CORRECTLY.
Normal 2 out of 3 matches are $40
Mandatory 3 set matches are $60
Single set Challenge matches are $20
Forfeited matches that are the official's last match of the wave/bracket-play AND do not require the official to perform the forfeit procedure will not be included in final match counts for payment.
Per the Independent Contractor Agreement, matches worked between the 16th and the end of the month are to be paid by the 15th of the following month.
A discounted rate of $55 (+tax) for either a single or double room can be reserved with Debbie. Please let her know if you would like a room for Friday and/or Saturday night(s) and she will make arrangements and will send you a confirmation #.
