This event is sanctioned by the Puget Sound Region of USA Volleyball
The club host and administrators are in compliance with USA Volleyball and Puget Sound Region rules regarding tournament sanctioning policies.
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.
These are the Divisions being offered in 2019. Team limits and locations updated on 4/17/19
* 18's Division: For U16-U18 teams, 24 Total teams. This division will be played at Jackson HS (3) and Gateway MS (3)
* 15's Division: For all U15's and 14's teams, 32 Total Teams. This division will be played at Glacier Peak HS (5) and Valley View MS (3).
* 13's Division: For all U13's and 12's teams, 12 Total teams. This division will be played at Edmonds Community College.
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.
This year, we will be adding a junior beach tournament to our Memorial Weekend Tournament options. The tournament(s) will be held at our 6-court Bottega Beach Volleyball Facility which is in Clearview and in close proximity to the indoor tournament sites. Current plans are to host one tournament on Friday afternoon/evening and another tournament on Monday, Memorial Day.
