Note: These guidelines also apply to Yankee Championships and Regionals.


Roster Approval Process for Nationals:

Beginning December 1, captains planning on attending nationals may submit their planned rosters to the head of their gender's ratings committee for approval.

Any players whose ratings change after a roster is approved will not affect the team's eligibility to play in Nationals at the approved level. 

This approval will only apply to nationals and not to other Yankee tournaments including regionals.  

Any subsequent replacements or additions the roster will require resubmission.

If a proposed roster includes players with unknown ratings or players who have not played in many tournaments the committee may choose to defer approval until the players have been observed more and their ratings verified.  If the roster includes players that the committee anticipates uprating prior to Nationals the roster will not be approved if the rating changes put the team over the mappings limit.


Nationals/US Open Ratings:
Ratings for the US Open are the same as Regionals for single gender tournaments (see below) except there is no minimum required for the US Open.

Nationals Coed and Reverse Coed Conversions:
Please contact Jeffry Powell with questions about ratings.

Player Memberships:
All Players need a full season membership, a Single Event Membership in not accepted

Out of Region Players:
You can bring out of region players on your team, however the roster needs to still be approved by the Ratings Committee, so it is best to have that player play if possible a few times in the NERVA Region to ensure the team fits within the Rating's limits. A Team needs to be at least 50% from the region they are entering from. For Roster updating on AES, you will need their USAV number which they have through their region's membership system. Any additional questions please see the Open Nationals Manual on their website or reach out to Jeffry or Judy with further questions.
