2014 southern invitational logo

The goal of this tournament is to bring the best teams in the South together prior to their states’ Championship Tournament for a weekend of top-level competition.  “Best tournament we have attended all year.”  “Exactly what we needed coming in to the Regional/State Championship Tournament.”  Those are some of the comments made by participating coaches last year, and our hope is to make the event more competitive and beneficial for participants with each passing year.

Press this reservation link your guests can use to make online reservations:

Coaches Meeting

There will be none.  Rather, we ask that coaches upload and review the Coaches Packet 2018 Southern Invitational   Coaches, please simply check in with the tournament desk upon your team’s arrival.

Athletic Trainers

We will have a certified athletic trainer on site commencing at 7:30 a.m. and for the entirety of the tournament.  If you want your ankles wrapped please supply your own tape.

Food Tables

We will provide enough tables for each team to use 1/2 table for food inside the gym. Please do not bring your own tables into the gym, as we do not have room for them.  Please also refrain from bringing heating devices such as crock pots in the gym.

tailgating

If you desire more space and weather permits, tailgating outside is permitted and encouraged.  If you avail yourselves of this option, please set up your tents in the grassy area in front and to the side of the building — NOT in the parking field and certainly not in front of our neighbors’ vehicles.

Gate

Children under 10 are admitted free.  All others will need to pay a $5/person entrance fee.

Parking

There should be sufficient parking on site for this tournament.  If the front lot is full, there is room — along with a second entrance — to the rear of the building. We have an overflow alternative in the event that ours is full — across Hembree Road in the Alpharetta Public Works Building.  Please do NOT park in the lot across the street serving AT&T, and do NOT park on the grass, in a reserved spot, or in a handicap spot (unless you display the proper credential), as violators will be towed.

We ask that buses park in the Public Works lot.  A parking attendant will be on duty to direct you.
