2020 MAROON AND ORANGE SERIES
The Maroon and Orange (M&O) is a series of two-day tournaments hosted by ACE in Virginia. It provides matched competition with open and club divisions so that every team has the opportunity to play at the appropriate level and enjoy a successful tournament. The last tournament of the series allows teams within each division to compete for a Bid to the AAU Nationals Championships.
Format: Teams start in pools with placement based on each team's record. The results of pool play will determine placement of each team in single elimination playoffs. Each match will be the best of three sets with the first two sets to 25 and the third set to 15. No cap. Each team will be guaranteed five matches.
Seeding: We do our best to rank appropriately so that every team has the opportunity to have an enjoyable experience while also keeping previous M&O participants in mind. First, we rank based on previous M&O results within the same season. Second, we look at overall results of the remaining teams. If a team is playing up in a division (for example, U12 team playing in a U13 division), they will be ranked after all of the other teams within the age bracket unless we have results from previous tournaments for them within that same age bracket.
Sanctioned: The first three M&O events of the season are JVA sanctioned, meaning you must be AAU members or USAV members. HOWEVER, for the Super Regional, you MUST be an AAU member in order to participate. If you are a non-AAU club, please, contact us to discuss how we can help.
Team Entry Fee: $500
Registration Deadline: The second to last Friday prior to each tournament by 11:59pm.
Roster Deadline: The second to last Friday prior to each tournament by 11:59pm.
