Level of Play

All levels will be accepted with some discretion from the tournament directors. While teams will still be allowed to self-select divisions, if the tournament director feels like a team is out of place by a significant amount, that team can be moved down. This will not be done without contacting the club and the team first.

Levels of play are in order from highest to lowest: Open, Premier, Club.

Stay to Play and Save Policy

The President's Day Classic this year is happy to announce its implementation of the Stay to Play and Save policy. Although, this policy has been highly controversial in the volleyball community, it has become necessary to help combat hotels driving prices higher and higher. Over the years, we have had anywhere between 80 and 90 percent of our participants using rooms from the AES list. Unfortunately, as our tournament has grown, rates for downtown hotels have risen to astronomical prices. The best defense we have against these high prices, is to go to the Stay to Play and Save Policy.

What does this mean for you?

In order to participate in the President's Day Classic, each out of town team must get rooms from the AES Approved hotel Block. There are two easy ways to do this:

  1. Call us at 1-800-476-0060 ext 118 and we will help you with our personable and helpful staff led by Kristine and Chris.
  2. Go online to https://www.advancedeventsystems.com/Hotel/SelectEvent.aspx and click on the appropriate event.
    • Click on the appropriate hotel.
    • Click on club/team/parents – book here
    • Select state and check box of appropriate club, and then appropriate teams.
    • Continue making reservation. It WILL be important that each room in the block attribute their room to the appropriate team.

Teams can make room blocks or make individual reservations, it is up to what each club’s preference is and what is the easiest process for those groups. We are here to help and to make this process as easy as possible.

How does Stay to Play and Save benefit you?

  1. Hotel Prices
    First and foremost, hotel prices have been driven down. We have seen dramatic decreases for our downtown hotels as well.
  2. Practice Balls
    The ability to leave practice balls at home allows for great savings. Teams that are flying in pay as much as $50-$100 to bring practice balls. We will now be able to have balls available for check out at the tournament desk. Two forms of ID will need to be left in order to take advantage of this benefit, but will be returned when the balls are returned. Please register before by emailing Scott McQueen at smcqueen@capitolsportscenter.com to take advantage of this savings. If you do not pre-register, it will be based on availability.
  3. Coupons and discounts at local restaurants and shopping attractions
    With an increased commitment to the city and its hotels, we have been able to receive more opportunities for savings at various shops, restaurants, and local attractions that before would not have been available.
