Frequently Asked Questions
This list will grow over time. We try to post all the most common questions we are asked so our players, parents, and spectators can plan accordingly.
If I'm in college with an athletic scholarship and win in at the OPEN level, will I be paid my cash prize?
1. Do I need a partner for a King & Queen
of the Beach/Grass format tourney?
NO! This is the beauty of this format. You register yourself for the division you wish to play and you will play many different people throughout the day, while keeping track of your individual win/loss record. There are 2 rounds of pool play, so if you are on 2 nets with 5 people on each net, you will play with 8 different people through pool play!
2. Is parking close to the Tournament playing field?
YES! There is ample parking less than 100yds from the field of play.
3. What is the difference between OPEN, AA/A, and
This is open to interpretation, but based on our experience and the number of players we know at all levels, here is OUR definition.
OPEN: Open players have excellent ball control skills. Passing, setting, hitting, digging, and even jump serving are very natural and virtually effortless at this level. Now the players playing this division will say its far from effortless; to the lower skilled players they make it LOOK effortless.
AA/A: This division of players still have great ball control skills. You know the game, and you may be a great hitter, but the rest of your game isn't quite there yet when you compare it to the OPEN level players. If you are trying to rate yourself here's a suggestion: 90% of your float serves should be in, your passing should be better then 50%, you should be able to hand set with very minimal ball rotation, and you should be able to hit the ball down and in at least 80% of the time.
BB/B: This division is for everyone else that knows how to play organized volleyball. Even though this is the lower level, these people still know the rules of the game and play on a regular basis, or have played on a regular basis at some point in their life. If you are the once or twice a year player that plays at your backyard family reunion, then you should consider being a spectator first and looking into your local parks & rec leagues to become familiar with real volleyball.
4. If I'm in college with an athletic scholarship
and win in at the OPEN level, will
I be paid my cash prize?
No. If you are in college and have an athletic scholarship, you are techincally unable to accept a cash prize. If you play with a partner that is NOT on an athletic scholarship, your partner will receive their share (50%) of the cash payout, while your 50% share gets divided into all of the other positions that get paid out.
5. Are we allowed to bring our dog to the tournaments?
Yes. However, they must be on a leash at all times, provided water and shade, cleaned up after, and controlled.
6. If I'm in high school, can I play in KOG Volleyball
Yes, if you are in high school you can play in a KOG Volleyball Tournament with parental consent. Please be advised that every high school has their own unique set of rules; it is recommended that players consult with their Athletics Director before registering.
