Tournament Format Update

The 2018 Girls Bid Event will remain a double elimination tournament. There are no format changes for Age Divisions with 16 or fewer teams, as they will continue to compete in a traditional double elimination tournament over the course of 1 day.

However, Age Divisions with 17 or more teams will compete in a double elimination tournament over the course of 2 days in a new format. Registered teams will be ranked numerically using the Region's ranking system. Our default procedure involves taking the top 10 seeds and removing them from the first day of competition. The remaining seeds will play off in a traditional double elimination tournament down to the final 2 teams. Those final 2 teams on the first day will overtake the 11 and 12 seeds, and will join the top 10 seeds in a 12 team double elimination tournament on the 2nd day of competition.

In the event the field size for an age group grows larger than 20 teams, there is a possibility the top 12 or 14 seeds will be removed from the first day of competition, instead of 10. This decision is entirely dictated and dependent on available facilities. As above - the seeds outside of the top 12 or 14 registered teams will play down to the final 2 teams. Those final 2 teams from the first day will then overtake the last 2 seeds of the 2nd day double elimination Bracket (either a 14 or 16 team bracket).

JNC Housing and the Gateway Region Lottery

Gateway Region belongs to the USAV Regional Tier Housing Lottery through Team Travel Source and and was picked 2nd to be allocated Hotel Room Blocks for the Summer GJNC. Our Region has allocated ten (10) rooms per team to one (1) team per age division 12-17s. The room blocks this season are located at the Westin Book Cadillac Detroit (1114 Washington Blvd, 48226), and coincide with the age group's dates of competition.

These blocks are allocated by priority of Finish in the Bid Event. However, these room blocks are reserved for teams that belong to clubs that are NOT already part of the GJNC Hotel Lottery, or have previously qualified at a Qualifier earlier in the season.

Clubs that belong to the 2018 GJNC Housing Lottery: Rockwood Thunder, HPSTL

If a team becomes eligible to receive a Region Lottery room block, the Region will contact the team Rep to begin the process of handing the room block over to the team. Teams may turn down the block if they choose. The next highest finisher not already a part of the GJNC Lottery will then be contacted. If all eligible teams of an age group have turned down the Region Lottery room block, then the rooms will be released to highest finisher whose club is in the housing lottery, if they are still in need of rooms. The deadline to utilze these rooms is 1 week after the conclusion of the Bid Event (Sunday May 13, 2018)
