All players must wear a jersey with a number. Jerseys do not need to match but numbers should be non duplicated front and back. If a team does not have matching uniforms then the Libero should not have a number so they are easier to identify. Since the libero is the only player that does not need a number, if a player does not have a number they will be designated as the Libero.

These formats will allow for the maximum number of teams to advance and still finish around the 7 PM time. This is not a guarantee that tournaments will not finish earlier or later than 7 PM. Pools with multiple divisions may use other options for playoffs--for instance divisions mixed with AA and A teams. Playoff advancement would be determined by the number of teams from each division and the number of courts.
Tie Breaker process:
1. Head to head play for all teams tied starting with games played against each other and then point differential against each other.
