Event Info

General

The 34th Emerald City Classic Invitational is one of the top junior club tournaments on the west coast. Every year we attract top teams from across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and some teams may travel from as far as Mexico, Alaska, California and Nevada. We have a limited number of spaces available in the tournament and more teams interested in attending than we have space for.

Because of this demand we have developed a process to fairly determine which teams will be accepted into the event and which teams will be placed on a wait list. We close phase 1 of registration on January 15th and for each division that has more teams than we have space for, we apply a weighted scoring system to determine each team's priority to be accepted. We score every team based on the following criteria to determine the priority of entry:

  1. Strength of Field
  2. Geographic Diversity
  3. Number of Teams per club in each division
  4. Years of attendance
  5. Whether a team plays in the NW Power League (these teams have priority entry into ECC)

We will announce which teams are accepted no later than January 31st. All teams that are not accepted will be offered a spot on the wait list. Many teams do drop between January and the end of May, so we do move quite a few teams from the wait list into the tournament.

18 Open, 16 Open, 15 Open will play in AM wave at the University of Washington.

18 Club, 16 Club, 14 Open will play in the PM wave at the University of Washington.

14 Club will play in the AM wave at the Academy Sports Center in Lynnwood.

13 Club will play in the PM wave at the Academy Sports Center in Lynnwood.

18 Boys will play on Saturday and Sunday only in a unique format on one court at the University of Washington.

There is no coaches meeting. All teams must check in at the playing site where they are assigned to play up to 1 hour prior to their first wave of competition. It is encouraged to have all teams from the same club checked in at the same time.

Awards will be given to the top two finishers in the gold division as well as the top finishers in each lower division (Silver, Bronze and Emerald). In addition, we will be recognizing 6 players from all divisions playing at UW for all tournament awards and the top defensive player in the U14, U15, U16, and U18 age divisions.

We have many food trucks available and great vendors that cater to volleyball families in attendance at the University of Washington.
