Out-of-state Qualifier Tournament for 14U through 18U teams

Each club team, from 14U through 18U, will play in one (1) out-of-state Qualifier Tournament. Qualifier tournaments are 3 days in duration and held at various states and venues. In the past, we have attended the Nike Mideast Qualifier. It has not been determined which tournament we will attend but the 2024 Nike Mideast Qualifier dates are:

  • 16U, 17/18U Nike Mideast Qualifier TBD, 2024 in Indianapolis, IN
  • 14U, 15U Nike Mideast Qualifier on March 22 - March 24, 2024, in St Louis, MO 

The Qualifier tournament allows the team to compete for a National Volleyball Championships bid.

 

The Qualifier participation fee is covered in your Club dues. The Qualifier tournament opportunity allows the girls to play in a large setting (convention center) against teams from all over the Midwest. It is a great experience for the girls to show off their talent and see talent from several states.

 

Participation in Qualifier Tournament is encouraged. The team will only attend the Qualifier if at least 8 team members commit to attend.  The team will stay at one hotel as a group. Players must stay with their parents. It is each family’s responsibility to provide transportation to/from the destination, lodging fees (3 nights), and all personal costs.
