North Country Region is dedicated to providing on-going support and services for our Region member clubs. We recognize the programming value and revenue opportunities that many clubs find in hosting their own volleyball tournaments. NCR-USAV offers the critical tools that our member clubs need to ensure the success of their tournaments. NCR charges NO FEES to sanction a tournament.
When a club tournament is sanctioned by NCR, the event is covered by unparalleled USAV general liability event insurance; the club receives the use of the AES tournament registration, management and payment platforms; and NCR provides EXCLUSIVE tournament marketing support for region sanctioned events.
