*This is an elite (invite only) event. We are currently working through the format for 2020 and will post schematics and flow charts after tournament officials determine the flow for all age groups. We will only offer a 12u - 18u division. The NIT does not use the standard flow of other tournaments.
Tournament Seeding: We will use 2019 US Club Rankings, PrepVolleyball.com's pre-season rankings, and any tournament finishes between January 1, 2019 through February 1, 2020. Club Directors will also provide their top 24 picks for their respective age group. After identifying the top 8 teams, who will be considered Number 1 seeds, they will be geographically cross-pooled to assure they play competition from outside of their region. The results of the first 3-4 matches for each team will determine seeding for the power pool or alternate pools for teams who do not qualify. After seeding matches on Saturday, tournament play will begin on Sunday.
