Competing for the Sun Country National Bids
Teams wishing to earn one of the seven age group automatic Region Bids to the USAV Girls Nationals in New Orleans that are awarded at the Region Championships MUST, in addition to the attendance requirements, register through AES.
The necessary paperwork is explained here:

The Championships will be divided into two tournaments. The Club Championship and the Bid Championship.
The Club Championship will be competed by Divisions. The Club Championship is for any team that has competed in at least ONE Bid qualifier.
The Bid Championship will be age group specific with a Champion in each age (18,17,16,15,14,13 & 12). The Bid Championship is for teams that have registered for Nationals through AES and wishes to compete for the Region Bid to Nationals. The highest finishing team will be awarded the Region Bid to Girls Nationals. Allocation bids will be awarded to the next highest team in procession.
Since our Region bids to Girls Nationals will be awarded at this tournament the Sun Country rule modifications will not be used. There will be no allowance for illegal uniforms. There can be no incomplete teams. All coaches must show Impact certification.
Championship Hotels and Rates
This season there are no hotel contracts. There were too many problems with the hotels and teams providing the necessary information to receive the rebates. The Board has decided all teams will make their own reservations and pay the entry of $350 for 17s & 18s and all others will pay $400.
The entry fees are now up on our website.
We are adding at least two more courts to the layout for a possible total of 20. We have acquired the main ballroom area for more vendors and we are planning some more perks for coaches and fun for the family.
