2020-2021 NERVA Convention Center Tournaments

NERVA is hosting a few convention center events in the 2020-2021 season

  • NIKE Boston Volleyball Festival — May 21-23, 2021, Boston, MA — ~70 courts (Girls and Boys)
  • Smack SpikeFest — June 12-13, 2021, Springfield, MA — # of courts TBD
  • Smack New England Winterfest — June 5-6, 2021, Mohegan Sun, CT — # of courts TBD

Each event will have its unique page below. Common information for all tournaments:

Referee registration is at SportWrench.com.

Please be sure to complete information about travel plans and housing needs (we can’t help you unless you tell us your plans).

Current SafeSport and USAV background check are both required.


Basic 2/3 matches (other formats will vary slightly):
    Provisional: $28/match
     Regional: $32/match
     Jr National/National: $36/match


COVID rules may impact what we do for food. TBD


Provided, double occupancy. Tournament will house referees the night before the event begins and referees will check out on the last day of the event (Boston will differ for those traveling significant distances).

Before you ask… regretfully, there will be no singles available, regardless of the referee’s willingness to pay half of the room cost. This is just the reality of 2021 tournaments.

Referees will be housed in hotels in the area. We wish we could house everyone immediately next to the event. That, alas, will not be possible.

The tournament will pay for parking at local hotels. Parking at the event is NOT reimbursed.


Except for the NIKE Boston Festival, there is no travel assistance provided.


Payments will be made electronically by the Wednesday following the event via ArbiterPay. To be paid, you MUST register with an ArbiterPay ID — No exceptions.
