2019 Memorial Weekend Tournament: May 25 & 26, 2019

Hosted by NW Juniors Volleyball Club

 

Tournament Information:

The 2019 Memorial Weekend Tournament is an open entry for any team that wants to play over Memorial Day Weekend.  It is not an “invitational” style tournament, so teams will be accepted first paid, first served, until the tournament fills.  Also, this will be a two-day format event, allowing teams to enjoy Memorial Day off.  Same number of  matches at Emerald City Classic, condensed over 2 days at half the price!

The tournament will be held at various schools in and around the Eastside and North Seattle, Everett, Snohomish, and will be a two-day progressive pool play format .  There will be two rounds of pool play, followed by single elimination play.  Saturday will be at least one round of pool (in most cases, the second round of pool will begin Saturday as well), Sunday will be the completion of the second round of pool and all of the playoff matches.  Play will go until later in the day Sunday — with Monday an off day.  Depending on numbers of teams accepted in each age division, we may start off with 2-3 divisions. Ultimately, we would like teams to not have to switch sites on Sunday after pool play.

Tournament Hotels

We have partnered with TRAVELING TEAMS® to secure discounted room blocks at a variety of tournament approved hotels close to our venues. Memorial Weekend is NOT a Stay and Play tournament this year, but they are available to help you secure your hotel rooms during this very busy weekend. While not required, it is recommended that all teams traveling from out of town reserve their hotel accommodations through TRAVELING TEAMS®. They have secured the best possible options, and the hotel relationship helps us keep our costs (and entry fees) down. If there is a hotel not listed that you want to stay in, thee is an option available on the website. Thank you in advance for your cooperation! Here is a LINK to the hotel reservation page.

Instructions for Canadian Teams

We typically get quite a few Canadian teams in our tournaments.  We ask that Canadian teams connect with our Region Office so that they can gather your documents. The region will collect your documents and contact us and inform us if your team is able to participate. Please do not procrastinate. The region WILL NOT allow your team to play without proper documentation. 

Puget Sound Region Office: 425-673-4103, office@psrvb.org

Below are links to forms that will need to be submitted to our region office so they can clear you to participate.

Play Information

Play information:

  • Play starts at 8:30 AM at all sites, both days
  • Doors open at 7:45 AM at all sites, both days
  • There will be a coaches meeting at 8:00 AM on Saturday morning at all sites.  Turn in your WEBPOINT USAV roster at that time. Canadian teams turn in all your documentation to the Puget Sound Region office and they will clear you. I will receive notification from the office which teams are cleared. All you will need to sign is your AES roster.
  • Most pool play matches will be 2/3 to 25 points with a 27 point cap.  Game 3 is to 15, no cap. Depending on the format and gym availability, we may use a 2/2 pool play format. In the case of a 3-team pool, matches will be 3/3 to 25 (no cap). All three sets must be played to 25 regardless of the result of the first two sets. This factors into final finish of each pool.
  • Playoffs will be 2/3 to 25, Game 3 to 15 — with no caps in any games.
  • Officials are not provided, teams must supply a first referee, second referee, lines people, and scorekeeper crew
