Team Approval Process
The WVSB Coordinators are ultimately responsible for selecting and inviting participating teams, and strive to preserve fairness of opportunity and geographically diverse representation.  The WVSB Coordinators use the process below to guide team selection.

  1. Interested teams contact their RESA coordinator
  2. If two or fewer teams apply from a given RESA, those teams receive an automatic invitation to participate in the WVSB Regional.  If more than two teams apply from a given RESA, the teams compete in a local (RESA level) tournament to rank the teams.  The top three teams receive an invitation to participate, and the fourth place winners are recorded for possible selection as alternate participants.
  3. If the tournament field is incompletely filled after accepting RESA nominees and winners, participants from among the fourth place winners are randomly selected.  No more than two teams will be accepted from a single school.
  4. If the tournament field is incompletely filled after following the above selection process or in case of cancellations less than 5 days prior to the event, WVSB Coordinators reserve the right to select teams according to logistical constraints, and may conduct the regional tournament with an incomplete field.  Teams so selected for participation will not be permitted to advance to the regional finals, regardless of performance in qualifying rounds.  In all cases, invitations to participate in the WVSB will come directly from the WVSB Coordinators.
