Entry Fees

  • All 12 Teams $500
  • 11 Girls: $475

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.

Check-In

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.

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 Hannah.
  2. Go online to https://www.advancedeventsystems.com/hotels 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.

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.

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.
