2011 Memorial Weekend Tournament
Hosted by Northwest Juniors VBC
May 28-29, 2011
2011 Event Notes:
The 2011 Memorial Weekend Tournament is an open entry for any team that wants to play over Memorial Day Weekend. It is not an "invitational" style tournament, so teams will be accepted first come, first served, until the tournament fills. Also, this will be a two-day format event, allowing teams to enjoy Memorial Day off. The tournament will be held at various schools in and around the Eastside and North Seattle, and will be a two-day progressive pool play format . There will be two rounds of pool play, followed by single elimination play. Saturday will be at least one round of pool (in most cases, the second round of pool will begin Saturday as well), Sunday will be the completion of the second round of pool and all of the playoff matches. Play will go until later in the day Sunday -- with Monday an off day.
This tournament provides an excellent opportunity for out of state teams (wait listed or unwilling to participate in the Emerald City Classic Invitational Tournament) to be guaranteed an opportunity to spend the three-day weekend in the great city of Seattle, playing volleyball against some of the best teams in the Northwest. It also condenses the same number of matches into a two-day format, allowing for teams to have Memorial Day off, to explore the great Puget Sound area while visiting. This unique tournament also encourages a higher-level of post-season competition, as the U16's play in a "U18-17" Division, U14's play in a "U15 Division" and U12's play in a "U13 Division".
