REGISTRATION POLICIES: Online and mailed registrations are accepted until 10PM on the Wednesday before the tournament day. Teams missing the deadline can register on-site. Teams who register at the tournament site will be charged an on-site registration fee of $15 per team. MAV and its tournament directors reserve the right to exclude teams that show up late (AFTER 8:30am). Any team that shows up late may lose its position in the tournament and will not receive a refund. Any team that does not show for a tournament will not receive a refund.

REFUND POLICY: Teams who wish to cancel from a tournament, may do so by 6:00 PM, Wednesday before the tournament. The team will receive their entry fee returned by check regardless of form of payment.

RAIN POLICY: In case of inclement weather, MAV will leave a taped message, at (240) 393-3488 and statements in our Twitter and Facebook accounts, regarding the status of the tournament. If a tournament is cancelled prior to its start, participants will receive a coupon good for any subsequent MAV tournament. Coupons will be mailed to all pre-registered participants within 10 business days after the tournament and must be used within 1 year of issue. If a tournament is in doubt, players are responsible for showing up at the site for a determination. If you do not show, you risk losing your entry fee. Once a tournament has started, refunds or certificates will not be given. MAV reserves the right to reschedule any tournament due to inclement weather, however, players will be offered tournament coupons for any rescheduled event. MAV and its tournament directors will be the final judge on the disposition of a tournament. Tournaments may be suspended due to field conditions or local environmental conditions (i.e. lightening, pollution alerts, high temperatures).

FORFEIT POLICY: If any team forfeits more than one match, they will be disqualified for the tournament and all of their games will revert to a 15-0 or 11-0 score. Any team who fails to be at their net, on time (the published start time for the tournament or 10 minutes after the completion of the previous match), shall forfeit the match. Attending teams (opponent and work team) shall make every effort to find the team by announcing the team name or the name of the players to the surrounding area.
FINES: Any team that leaves early, prior to their final match or their last work match, shall be subject to a fine of not more than $10 per player.
