What is new about pins this year?
This year pins aren't marked as a specific power. Instead, we offer 5 or 6 different types of pins that you will have a chance to earn throughout the season. We want to give everyone the opportunity to collect as many pin designs as you can!
How do I get my pin?
Pins will be located at all venues throughout the season. After you have won your division, please find the tournament director. They will let your team choose from among the available designs!
What if I won, but forgot to grab my pin?
In the event that you cannot find the site director and do not receive pins for the team, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
Now it is your turn to compete for a chance to earn all the pins!

As we near the end of the season, our traveling teams inevitably look towards the annual Girls USAV National Championships (GJNC). At that event, eight different age divisions (18s, 17s, 16s, 15s, 14s, 13s, 12s and 11s) are hosted.
As many as seven different skill divisions are offered across the age divisions. In order, those are: OPEN, NATIONAL, USA, LIBERTY, AMERICAN, FREEDOM and PATRIOT. The chart attached to the right describes which Skill Levels are offered in each of the Age Divisions.
There are three paths to get to the GJNC: 1) Qualify at one of the Junior National Qualifiers (JNQs) that take place across the country. 2) Qualify at regional Bid-Qualifying tournaments (RQs), or 3) Pay-to-Play in the Patriot Division. Most of you are familiar with items 1 and 3 above, so let's turn to item 2, the Regional Qualifiers.
USAV grants each region a certain number of bids in each of three skill levels: National, American and Freedom. The RMR is a "mid-sized" Region, so we get ONE bid in each of those three divisions. But remember that not all age-divisions play in all skill divisions. (The 11s, for example, only play in the "National" category)
We take great pride in hosting our Regional Qualifiers. We host several:
The 18s Zelinkoff Bid Tournament (ZBT-18) in early March
The RMR National Bid Tournament (NBT, for 14s-17s) in mid-March
The Zelinkoff Bid Tournaments (ZBT 11-13s) and (ZBT 14-17s) in late April and early May
Of course, teams might participate in several JNQs and/or IQs during their season. As they get better, and win at ever-higher levels, the bids they win are "passed down" through a process we call "bid progression." It can be challenging to track all the progression moves through the spring, and so we publish "Bid Standings" for our RMR teams HERE (use the tabs at the bottom of the sheet to navigate between age-divisions)
