QUALIFIER ETHICS AND ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION

Crossroads, as a National Qualifier, is part of the USA Volleyball National Championships. Participants, individual or team, may access normal "due process" channels should their eligibility to participate be in question. Procedures, including appeal options, are outlined in the Bylaws of USA Volleyball in Article XI. Bylaws can be found in the current issue of the USAV Official Guidebook. The Guidebook is available through Regional Commissioners or from the USA Volleyball national office, at the event Championship Desk and on the USAV web site.

QUALIFIER PLAY DIVISIONS AND BIDS

We are hosting teams in the 18 Open, 18 USA, 18 American, 17 Open, 17 USA, 17 American, 16 Open, 16 USA, 16 American, 15 Open, 15 USA, 15 American, 14 Open, 14 USA, 14 American, 13 Open, 13 American, 12 National, and 12 American in the Junior National Qualifier divisions.

Teams may choose which division - Open, National (12s only), USA, or American - in their age that they want to enter. Open divisions tend to be stronger teams and the field size tends to be smaller.

Below are the number of teams we can accommodate in each qualifier division and the number of bids available for that number of teams. Open division entrants are playing to win bids to the Open division of GJNC. National division entrants (12s only) are playing to win a bid to the National division of GJNC (and, depending on certain criteria, an American bid). USA division entrants are playing to win a bid to the USA division of GJNC. American division entrants are playing to win a bid to the American division of GJNC.
