2021 Presidents Day Weekend Tournament Cancelled
WE WILL BE BACK IN 2022!
We are tentatively opening up the 2021 Presidents Weekend Tournament for entries. We are optimistic that we will be able to host this year, but we are not certain how many courts we will be able to secure. We are opening it as a slimmed down version. We will add teams as we secure additional courts. Please be aware that the last information to be posted will be locations.
As of 12/23/20, we have also reduced the entry fee to $400 per team. Partially because we will not be providing officials this year, and partially as an economic relief to teams that opt to play in our tournament this year. Thank you! To those clubs that support the 25th year of this tournament!
We invite everyone to join us for the 25th Annual Presidents Weekend Tournament.
Your entry fees are not paying for the rental of a big facility, convention center, or sport-court rentals — we are one of the last great multi-site tournaments. In attending the Northwest Juniors President’s Day Weekend Tournament, you can expect to find quality competition for teams of all ages and skill levels. This tournament will be held at various schools throughout the Puget Sound area. The tournament is a three-day wave progressive pool play format.
We will not be providing up officials in 2021
AM wave is from 8 AM – 2 PM
PM wave is from 3:00 – 9:00 PM.
The hotels page for 2021 will be updated soon. A link will be placed HERE.
2021 is the fourth year of Stay and Play for our Presidents Weekend tournament. Please use our hotel service, it is how we keep tournament costs down and pay for officials. Out of town teams will not be accepted without a confirmed hotel contract with Traveling Teams.
We have partnered with TRAVELING TEAMS® to secure discounted room blocks at a variety of tournament approved hotels close to our venues. Presidents Weekend is a Stay and Play tournament this year. If there is a hotel not listed that you want to stay in, there is an option available on the website. Thank you in advance for your cooperation! Out of town teams, please note that your teams will not be accepted until we have a confirmed reservation from Traveling Teams.
This tournament provides an excellent opportunity for out of state teams to spend the three-day weekend in the great city of Seattle, playing volleyball against some of the best teams in the Northwest. It is also a great opportunity for U17 and U18 teams not able or unwilling to participate in tournaments outside the State of Washington. This event has been a huge success in years past and will offer great competition for all most groups at a reasonable price. In 2021 it will be a much smaller event than in years past. The tournament format will be pool play on Saturday and Sunday with playoffs on Monday — ALL TEAMS HAVE PLAYOFFS ON MONDAY. Play should continue no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, President’s Day, so plan accordingly
At the coaches meeting: Rosters that coaches or club directors submitted into AES will be printed out ahead of time for you to verify and sign. We will also collect your signed “Webpoint” USAV Rosters. We will ask that you submit a phone number on the BOTH rosters so that our Tournament Director can contact you throughout the tournament if needed. THESE ROSTERS MUST MATCH AND CHANGES CAN ONLY BE MADE TO THE AES ROSTER.
All coaches are required to carry their signed players’ Medical Release Forms with them at all times during the tournament. You do not need to submit these forms at the Coaches Meeting.
2021 WAVES ARE TBA. Waves and team numbers will be updated as we secure courts.

We know it's tough to find all the information spread out over the page, so here is the information on rosters:
There is a chance we will not have region rankings to seed our tournament. As a result, we will do our best using past history to seed the tournament. We will also do our best to avoid region and club conflicts.
Seeding in an inexact science, and we do our best to ensure teams are placed in the appropriate division and have a great experience.
Coaches, note that we do not have the ability to add waivered players to AES rosters. That can only be done at the AES/USA Volleyball level. If you have waivered players, we are aware that they will not appear on your AES roster. As long as they are on your Webpoint roster -- WHICH YOU DO TURN IN AT THE COACHES MEETING -- then they will be legal to play this weekend.
As stated in our tournament information, we no longer have a Friday night coaches meeting. You will have a coaches meeting on the first day of play at your play site. The meeting will occur 30 minutes before play begins. PM Wave teams please be patient, since this is the busiest time of the day for Tournament directors their first priority will be to get the AM wave pools finished and AM wave teams out.
At the coaches meeting, your TD will go over facility rules and format changes that have occurred since the schedule was published in AES. They will have your AES roster for you to sign and verify. YOU WILL ALSO TURN IN YOUR USAV ROSTER, which is your official tournament roster. Please make sure both rosters have your head coach's cell number in case we need to get a hold of them. Both rosters will be turned into the Puget Sound Region office after the event.
For day 2 and day 3, you do not need to turn in a new roster. There will be a meeting before play begins only to go over the playing rules of the site.
