2018 VASO Event List

   2018 VASO Event Schedule

   Events FAQ - Very useful for new coaches

In the sidebar is a complete list of events that will be run in Virginia in 2018. Each event has its own page and we encourage you to check these pages frequently – you will find event updates, resources, and clarifications on the individual event pages. The following explains the special event designations:

  • "States Only" events will not be run in the Regional tournaments.
  • "VA Only" events will only be run in VA tournaments. They are not on the National list or in the National rules. Rules for these events are posted on the specific event page.
  • "Building" events have special applicable VASO policies – links are on the event page.

VA will not be running the Division C National event "Game On". Instead we will substitute Code Analysis in Division C. Event rules for Code Analysis are on the VASO Code Analysis page.

Clarification Policy

During our tournaments, VASO will enforce only those clarifications issued by VASO; National clarifications and FAQs will not be valid in Virginia tournaments.

Clarification requests are closed for regional tournaments. All outstanding clarifications, with the exception of regional-specific room dimensions required by the rules, will be posted by midnight, January 13. Clarification requests will open again for States after the last regional.
