2023 Spring Classic Tournament: March 11-12, 2023

Hosted by NW Juniors Volleyball Club


Tournament Information:

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.


U12 - U18 Divisions on AES


Spring Classic Tournament: March 11-12, 2023




We are accepting teams first PAID, first in until the event fills. This a great opportunity for teams to play in a championship-level event at a convenient location midway between Seattle and Portland. The venue also houses 22 courts in one location.


For all age groups:

  • Two-day Tournament 
  • 22 courts in ONE locations: NW Sports Hub in Centralia, WA.
  • All teams will play their first pool on Saturday; then the tournament will be re-seeded and they will start their second round of pool Saturday afternoon/evening. 
  • Teams will finish 2nd round of pool on Sunday and be seeded into their bracket play Sunday afternoon. 
  • Assuming all 3 or 4-team pools, teams will get a minimum of 6 matches. 4 matches Saturday, and at least 2 matches Sunday.

We encourage teams to enter early to guarantee Entry.

Why the Spring Classic is a better Travel Tournament option

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:

  • It's an AAU Super Regional! Teams from all over the Northwest will come to compete. For champions, they get a free tournament entry to one of three AAU Championship tournaments: West Coast Championships (Las Vegas), Volleyball Festival (Phoenix), AAU Nationals (Orlando).
  • The tournament HQ is a better venue. With 22 courts under one roof, we can give more teams that "big tournament feel".
  • For your non-National teams that are looking for a good tournament to play in, we give them a better experience; in a location that is easy to get to halfway between Seattle and Portland. 
  • The format will be the same, but the logistics are better. Your teams will play pool play, plus at least one more match on Saturday, then finish pool play and have playoffs on Sunday. We have 22 courts under one roof, with a restaruant and bar in-house. No need to leave or switch sites between rounds. 
  • All under one roof: concessions, 22 courts, tee-shirt vendor, spectator seating, 2 bars, Par 4 Sports Golf Simulator, private rooms for team party rentals. The HUB has it all! It's the feel of a Qualifier without the cost and inconveniences.





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 




Spring Classic Tournament Hotels


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 Guidelines:

This event is licensed by the Amateur Athletic Union of the U.S., Inc.·   All participants must have current AAU membership numbers before competition begins (pending status is not acceptable).  Visit to obtain membership (club, non-athlete and athlete membership required). Membership is not included in the event entry fee.  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.

Be sure and import your AAU numbers into AES using a data import. You will be required to turn in an AES roster at the coaches meeting with AAU membership verification. 

Waivered players cannot participate in this event.

Additional Tournament/ AAU Information

* Winning teams in age divisions with 12 or more teams will receive a free entry fee to the AAU Junior National Volleyball Championships, Volleyball Festival in Phoenix or the West Coast Championships in Las Vegas, NV.  In divisions with less than 12 teams, the entry to AAU Nationals will be discounted (see below).

All teams must register for the event by the appropriate deadline. All three tournaments are open to any team, no qualifying required. For complete rules and guidelines for Super Regional or Grand Prix events, please visit

AAU Rules, Scorekeeping, Etc. for participating teams







Coaches/Club Directors:

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.

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.

Remember: Food and drink are not allowed into the facility. HUB CITY GRUB and TAPROOM will be open throughout the weekend.
