Team Information - 2019 Divisions and Bids

2019 Divisions and Bids

If your team is participating in the 18 and under divisions, please visit the  2019 18s Championships page.

Please download the USAV Qualifier Manual for details on the divisions and the bids.  The 2019 qualifier manual has not yet been published.

Open Divisions

The goal of the Open divisions at the JNC is to identify the best team in the country through rigorous competition in a particular age classification from among the top 32 teams. The Open divisions of the Qualifiers are designed to identify and select those top 32 teams. Teams have only one avenue to gain entry into an Open division of the JNC—participate in an Open division at a Qualifier and either earn a bid at the Qualifier or perform well enough to earn an at-large bid.

Club Divisions

The goal of the GJNC Club divisions is to showcase regionally strong teams and provide the opportunity for more teams to participate at the GJNC.

Teams have three avenues to earn a bid for a GJNC Club division (National, USA or American):

  • Earn a bid at a NQ (USA or American); or
  • Earn a bid through their region's qualifying process (National or American); or
  • Earn a bid from their region through the Re-allocation process. 

Select divisions
