All division assignments (AM or PM) are subject to change before the start of the tournament. Wave assignments may vary from Day 1 to Day 2, depending on W/L record and schedule
Competition for all age divisions at Crossroads takes place during one of these two weekends – there is no separate tournament for the 18s.
TEAM ENTRY INFORMATION

Play begins at 8:00AM on Saturday, March 10, 2018 for Week 1 and 8:00AM Friday, March 16 for Week 2.
Play on Day 1 and Day 2 of each weekend is pool play in a wave format. The morning pools (wave) begin at 8:00AM and the afternoon pools (wave) begin at 3:00PM on Days 1 and 2.
Teams playing in the AM Wave on Day 1 do NOT necessarily play in the AM wave on Day 2; Day 2 and Day 3 play time assignments depend on the team’s pool finish the previous day.
Depending on the number of teams in a division, there may be additional matches for some teams in the evening of either Day 1 or Day 2 (or both). After the finish of the Day 1 pools, further play depends on the team’s pool finish.
Day 3 of each weekend is a combination of pool play and bracket play, or single elimination bracket play, depending on the team’s standing at the end of Day 2.
The last round of matches on Day 3 each weekend is scheduled to begin at 2 pm. However, play usually runs late on Day 3 of the tournament, so we recommend that you schedule any flights departing from Denver International Airport at 6:00 pm or later. (The airport is about a 45 minute drive from the Convention Center in good weather and normal traffic; bad weather or traffic problems add to that time.)
Specific play times for specific teams is published the week of the tournament after seeding is completed and teams are assigned to pools for Day 1.
Provided we finish court installation before 2 pm MST on Friday, March 9th (for Week 1) and Thursday, March 15 (for Week 2), teams may practice at the Convention Center for a 1-hour period the day before the opening of the tournament each weekend. Practice periods begin at 2:30 pm on the practice day.
Use of practice courts is a first-come, first-served basis; no reservations are needed. All practices must be finished and all players, coaches and spectators must leave the court area not later than 8:00 pm on the practice days. All spectators, players and coaches must have an entry wristband; no one is admitted into the playing floor area without it; this includes those watching tryout activities and it holds for the entire tournament. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Each team must provide its own equipment (volleyballs and carts) for both practice and the tournament.
Each weekend certain courts are unavailable for practice use because of tryouts for USAV High Performance teams (both weekends) and the Crossroads Showcase (both weekends).
