IRV G18 Oct 23 Des Moines
IRV means Iowa Region Volleyball
G18 means that it is an 18u tournament at the Gold Level
Oct 23 is the date of the tournament
Des Moines is the city location of the tournament

Tournament Director Essentials
Iowa Region Tournament Levels
Tournaments in the Iowa Region are one of three levels:
- Power: teams attempting to qualify for Nationals & teams of that caliber. Age teams only.
- Gold: Combined gold and silver level teams. Age or grade teams.
- Silver: Beginning or developmental level teams. Age or grade teams.
Note that the tournaments are classified by level, but teams themselves are not ranked as Gold or Silver. Teams may self-select which tournaments they play in (as long as they meet the age/grade criteria). The Power/Gold/Silver classifications are a method of helping teams find tournament in which they can compete against teams at their same approximate level.
TOURNAMENT OPENINGS EMAILS
If you did not fill your schedule or get into all the tournaments you wanted on Dec. 1, please do not despair! Spots will continue to open and more tournaments will be added.
Colleen Platt will begin sending out a daily email with tournament openings after Dec. 1. Club Administrators will be getting the information; if you as a team rep want to get daily updates please send an email to [email protected] .
If you are directing a tournament and have openings, please email Colleen ([email protected]) with the date, age group, and number of openings, and she will include it on her daily email.
