Under Armour Presents the 2020 Spring Classic Tournament.
Previously an AAU Super Regional Tournament. We have switched this tournament to a USA Volleyball event. There will not be many events available for teams to enter once play resumes, so we wanted to make this tournament available to as many teams as possible. More teams have USAV membership than AAU membersip in the Puget Sound, Evergreen, and Columbia Empire regions.
This is an open entry tournament for teams looking for a multi-day tournament experience in early May. The tournament is for teams of all levels.
The tournament will be held at the NW Sports Hub -- a 14 court facility in Centralia. There are an additional 6 courts in close proximity that we can access should the event grow beyond current projections. All Gold Divisions on Sunday will be at the NW Sports Hub, and all Gold Finals will be played on the feature wood courts. The Under Armour All-Tournament Team for each age group will be presented after each Gold Final.
There will be two rounds of pool play, followed by single elimination play. Teams that finish in the top three are guaranteed to have players on the Under Armour All-Tournament team.
Saturday will be one round of pool and the beginning of the second round of pool play. Sunday will be the completion of the second round of pool and all of the playoff matches. All teams will play pool play matches on Sunday and have tournament play Sunday afternoon. Medals will be awarded to the top three teams in each age group
Team Limits: (tentatively for 13 courts at the NW Sports Hub, but will expand if necessary)
- U18 Division: 12 Teams
- U16 Division: 24 Teams
- U12-14 Division: 16 Teams
We will add teams based on registrations received by the end of April.
The event policies have been updated to reflect the new dates over Mother's Day Weekend (May 9-10). Please note that there is a discount for registering and paying by 4/24/20 (Midnight EST). If you register early, but pay after 4/24/20 a $50 late fee will apply. Times are Eastern Standard times (set by AES).
This is no longer a championship event, waivered players will be permitted. If you have a waivered player, they MUST appear on your USAV roster. You will not be able to add them to your AES roster.
