As of 3/7 (Roster Deadline), we are still waiting for some clubs to input their rosters.

We will post the boy's Schedule Thursday afternoon.
The 2023 Spring Classic Tournament is an open entry tournament for teams looking for an alternative to playing in Central Washington or looking for an alternative travel tournament that is not a USAV National Qualifier. The tournament is for teams of all levels. This is the fourth year we are hosting the event as an AAU Super Regional.
The tournament is a 2-day format with two rounds of pool and playoffs. All teams play both days of the tournament. We also start the tournament a little later than most so teams can commute if they prefer.
Spring Classic Tournament: March 11-12, 2023
For all age groups:
We encourage teams to enter early to guarantee Entry.
The NW Sports Hub has 22 courts in the same venue - 14 courts in the main building and an additional 8 courts in their Annex. We are running this year's Spring Classic alongside a Boy's USAV tournament on 2 of the courts in the Annex.
18+ courts for our event and offer these Girl's Divisions:
Boy's Division: 8 teams
We traditionally use a later start each day to accommodate teams or players that prefer to commute each day.
We realize that there is an established inter-regional tournament on the weekend we chose to host our Spring Classic Tournament. That is not by accident. Our club teams have been traveling this same weekend every year, but the quality of the tournament we have attended has deteriorated over the years. We have run the Presidents Day Weekend tournament for over 20 years, and running large format tournaments is our specialty. Here is why our tournament is better:
Entry fee is $450.00 per team, with a $50 discount for teams registered and paid by 12/31/22 at 9:00 PM PST ($400.00 for early entry). A credit card processing fee applies. Entry fee is refundable if the tournament is cancelled. Payment is required for acceptance, and teams will be accepted first PAID, first in. Registration date does not determine order, nor guarantee acceptance. There is a $50 administration fee for teams that drop after payment. No refunds after the entry dealdine unless the tournament is cancelled.
Our event in NOT a stay and play event, but we do recommend going through the Twin Cities Sports Commission and using one of the hotels listed on the site for the NW Sports Hub .
[BOOKING LINK UPDATED 1/13/23]
This is not a Stay and Play tournament, however, we are working directly with the Twin Cities Sports Commission to put together hotel packages for visiting teams. They have created a direct event BOOKING LINK so you can access available rooms for this weekend.
They have connected with hotels throughout the Centralia and Chehalis area and secured available rooms.
AAU MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION & RESOURCES

BE PREPARED: Adult and Non-Athlete memberships are no longer instant and cannot be applied for at the event. Please allow up to 10 days for membership to be processed.

PLAYING SCHEDULE & INFORMATION
We will be printing out AES rosters for all the teams and will have them available for you to sign at the coaches meeting. Some directors have emailed us that they are having some issues getting all their players through AES. Here is a response I received from AAU regarding rosters and membership verification:
"Through AES they should be submitting rosters with their AAU memberships verified. They can do this by doing the import from AAU in their AES account. If for some reason some of their members do not show up as verified, they can show you a copy of their AAU membership card to prove they have a 2023 membership."
It might also be a good idea to login to your AAU and print out a member list, just to be safe. With so many teams coming from out of town, I do not want there to be an instance where we cannot allow a player to play because they cannot prove their AAU membership.
Play Information will be posted here when final. There will be a link to the AES schedule. As we get closer to the tournament, we will also post Covid protocols and procedures given to us by the venue.

Please note that we WILL be charging admission for this event. Admission is $5 per adult each day. Children, students with ID, and rostered team staff will be admitted free. Outside food is not allowed in the Sports Hub, so be aware we will be checking bags at the admission gate.
We will have a staggered entry with the doors open at 8:30 AM for athletes and coaches only; spectators will be admitted starting at 9:00 AM, play begins at 9:30. This will allow us to get the players and coaches into the gym and onto the courts for their warmup without delay.
Bleacher seating is available on most courts. On courts where bleachers are not provided, outside chairs will be permitted. We recommend spectators come prepared for either scenario.
