If you have any questions regarding this tournament, please contact Scott McQueen.
This year's President's Day Tournament will be using Advanced Event Systems for its registration process. AES will be the website that is the choice of USAV Girl’s Junior National Championship, National Qualifiers, Regional’s, and many other events throughout the country.
The Capitol Sports Center staff will send out broadcast emails to inform you of other information and steps as they come available.
Entry fees must be received with completed entry form to be accepted into the tournament by 1/15/2021. This event is open to all USAV teams however, rosters do need to be submitted online by the roster deadline.
Pre-tournament check-in will take place at the St. Louis Convention Center/Indy Convention Center from 3:00-9:00 PM on Friday, February 12th. Please make sure that rosters are complete in AES by February 5th.
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.
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:
Housing will open on Tuesday, September 1st at 9 AM Eastern time. You will be able to go online and book on www.advancedeventsystems.com or call us at 800-476-0060 ext. 118. Please be patient as our call volume is expected to be high. Please leave us a voicemail or send an e-mail for assistance and we will respond at our earliest convenience.
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.
