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.
Registration is not considered complete until payment is sent in and this is a first come first serve event. Registration does NOT insure acceptance. Open divisions and premier divisions will be accepted on a quality control level to insure those divisions are the strongest possible. Open and Premier will be invite only starting in 2023. We will use current results on AES as well as past year's results in this events and other bigger events to determine if we are oversubscribed in those divisions. Please make sure that results are up to date and CORRECT on AES.
Pre-tournament check-in will take place at the St. Louis Convention Center from 3:00-9:00 PM on Friday, February 17th. Please make sure that rosters are complete in AES by February 16th.
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.
ADMISSION INFO – STL President’s Day Classic 2023
Coaches / Parents / Spectators –
Thank you for attending the 2023 President’s Day Classic in St. Louis. We will be using our traditional method for Admission in 2023.
Everyone will be required to show a wristband for the weekend or for the day (except for players who only need to show their uniform).
Wristbands will be available on Friday night from 3:00pm – 8:00pm in Room 120 (outside Hall 2 at the Convention Center)
and then available throughout the weekend in that same room. Admissions will open at 6:45am on
Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning at the convention center.
Please be aware that credit card lines can become long.
To avoid delays, we are recommending that everyone use cash to purchase wristbands when possible.
The cash lines move much quicker and will not delay you in getting to your court.
Prices will be as follows:
1 Day Pass - $15
3 Day Pass - $40
12 and under are Free
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 Wednesday, 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.
