Want to register for Area League? Or, start a team?
Clubs can be one team or many teams. The number of teams you organize is up to you! There is nothing better than affiliating yourself with an organization that offers Power League, Area League and Non League, Junior National and special events for your teams. Many of these are events are run in state of the art convention centers with online (and live!) score reporting, live online video of championship matches and more! Here are a few of the perks of being an NCVA affiliated club:
Several league options to choose from: Power League, Area League and Non League.

Area League tournaments will be offered in the following age groups: 18, 16, 14, and 12.
All teams who do not participate in the Power League are eligible to play in an Area League tournament.
If you are entered into Power League, your team is not eligible to play in Area League Tournaments.
The entire Area League consists of a one-day Qualifier, four League dates, and a two-day Region Championship.
A team must play in at least two Area League tournaments to be eligible to play in the Region Championships.
All teams participating in the Area League will receive points.
The Area League point structure will be used to seed teams into the Region Championships.
Each team will have the option to play as close to home as possible or to travel; typical travel time is 90 minutes. However, sites and travel times are subject to change.
Play will begin at 8:30 AM.
Each match is the best two-out-of-three sets to 25 points in the first two sets and to 15 points in the third set, if necessary.
All sets will use rally scoring with no cap.
After pool play, teams will advance to playoff brackets.
If bracket play cannot be completed by 6:00 PM, the tournament director may change the scoring method from a best two-out-of-three sets to one set to 25 points. Teams will switch sides when one team scores 13 points. The decision will be based on leaving the site by 6:00 PM.
The 12 and under Area League and Non-League tournaments will use the lite ball and players are not allowed to step into the court when serving.
Only teams that do NOT have 12-year olds—players who are 11 years old and under—are allowed to use the lite ball AND step into the court when serving.
