About the Route 66 Roundup
Started in 2015 and now in it’s ninth year, the 2024 Route 66 Volleyball Roundup event in Springfield, MO is developing into the premier event in the area with more and more teams from surrounding regions attending the event.

When: January 27 & 28, 2024

Combine: There will be no combine in 2024

Format: We try to get as much as possible pools of 5 teams. The teams play a round robin in their pool on Saturday. We play from 8 am till about 5 pm. On Sunday there is a challenge round followed by single elimination playoffs. Play is scheduled to complete around 4 pm on Sunday. If we end up with 4 team pools, there may be some cross matches on Saturday afternoon to give teams 4 matches on Saturday.

Match format: In 5-team pools, the challenge round and playoffs, play is best 2 out of 3 sets format. First 2 sets to 25 points, starting at 4-4. Third set, if needed, is to 15 points, starting at 0-0.

Ties: All ties are broken on paper. No tie-breaking sets are played. Teams that are tied after pool play will be seeded as follows: 2-way ties: head to head match result will determine the higher seed. Three or Four way ties will be broken in the following order: Overall set percentage, overall point percentage, head-to-head set percentage, head-to-head point percentage. It still tied, a coin flip will determine the highest seed. For pools where automatic 3 sets are played, the final finishes will be based on MATCH records in the first place. If teams are tied in MATCH record, the procedures above apply.

Officiating: R1’s are provided for all matches. Teams will be responsible to provide the rest of the work team. A rostered coach (head or assistant) has to be the R2 or the Scorer for the match.

Credentials: All coaches are to wear their HOA credentials visible at all times. Coaches who do not have a picture on their credentials will have to check in and show a picture ID, to get a wristband to prove that their identity is checked.
