RMR Power Tournaments
The Rocky Mountain Region hosts six Power Tournaments during the 2020 Season. Assigned sites and format schedule will be posted at TM2sign.com no later than Wednesday before the tournament. RMR asks you not call the office to inquire where you will be playing. The Sunday Power Tournaments will find Flatiron’s teams in gyms from Colorado Springs to Ft. Morgan to Greeley. All match play begins at 8:00 am. Your coach will let you know what time to arrive.
Tournament site details and rules will be posted on the RMR website (www.rmrvolleyball.org) – click on Facility Info at the top of the home page.
It’s very important all rules are followed and the team area is completely cleaned up at the end of the day. The Rocky Mountain Region will assess a fine for leaving any kind of trash or mess; usually $100. If your team is fined, the penalty will be the responsibility of all members of your team.
Teams are seeded into the Power structure based on their finish the prior season.
To learn all the details of the Power structure, go to the RMR website (www.rmrvolleyball.org) and click on Girls. Click on Club Directors then click on 2020 Junior Handbook.
Most pool play consists of four team pools. Occasionally, you may play in a 3 or 5 team pool. Prepare for a longer day if you are in a five team pool.
In some cases, teams will play a crossover/playoff set against the team with the corresponding finish from another pool. The set is one “game” to 25. If there’s a crossover match, it will be the best two out of three sets/games. This is to determine seeding for the next Power Tournament. Six team pools do not play a crossover set or match. The winner of the first place crossover match or set is awarded the coveted RMR pins.
Recommendations for the Power Tournament:
- Allow plenty of time for travel to the tournament site. Directions and additional information is posted in the “Tournament Info” section of the RMR website.
- Get a good night sleep. If bad weather is predicted, you may want to travel on Saturday night and stay in a motel. It’s especially fun for teams to stay overnight as a group.
- If your athlete is slow to wake in the morning, encourage her to stay awake during the drive to the tournament site.
- Bring all uniform pieces and extra socks. Don’t forget your court shoes, ankle braces & black kneepads.
- Zip your warm ups and all items of value in your backpack. There is very little theft at the tournaments but it does happen occasionally.
- Bring plenty of healthy food and snacks. It’s best for players to graze over the course of the day rather than eat one large meal. Avoid foods containing caffeine and/or high amounts of sugar, salt and saturated fats. No soft drinks or energy drinks. Avoid processed and fried foods. If you’d like to bring sweets, do not make them available until after the tournament.
- Bring plenty of water. Gatorade type drinks should be diluted 50/50 with water. We don’t recommend drinking tap water or from school fountains.
- Bring a chair with plastic covers on the legs and a stadium seat. Some gyms allow chairs while others have bleachers. And some gyms offer both.
- Obey the rules of the facility. Never leave a mess – let there be no evidence that you were there.
- You are strongly encouraged to organize an occasional pot luck. This is lots of fun for the girls and provides special foods that are enjoyed by all. Decide ahead of time if the quantity of food will include enough for entire families or just the athletes.
- Bring warm clothes and blankets. Most school gyms turn their heat down over the weekends and it can get quite cold.
- This is a day for players to bond with each other and their coaches. Spectators need to cheer and support the athlete’s efforts.
- Playing time concerns are prohibited from discussion on tournament day.
- All players need to participate in reffing duties which means everyone must stay till the end of the tournament.
- In the event of inappropriate spectator or parent behavior that could escalate, immediately inform the tournament site director.
- If you have a complaint about the facility or the tournament, call or email Director Susan Cancilla at (303) 543-7605 or email@example.com on Monday following the tournament. Do not call the Rocky Mountain Region office.
- Most important: volleyball is a sport where players learn by making mistakes. Mistakes are a learning opportunity and need to be treated as such.
- Also most important: take a few minutes to read the Spectator/Parent Behavior Code of Conduct (attached)
- Schedule and results for all teams are posted at:
Have fun and cheer for great plays on both sides of the net!
