We created this early-season tournament in response to several coaches’ requests. Though of course a team’s performance at the end of the season matters more than at the beginning, this event provides coaches with an important barometer of where their team stands and what they need to work on.
Registration is now closed.
Here’s the Schedule. Note – the varsity schedule has changed owing to the last-minute drop of a team:
- 2019 kickoff klassik JV schedule
- 2019-kickoff-klassik-varsity-schedule rev 1 this revised schedule affects pools B and C. It was posted at 5 p.m. on thursday.
Cost is $255 for the varsity division and $225 for JV.
Coaches Packet — There will be no coaches meeting. We ask that you check in the tournament desk when your team arrives, at which time we will give you a coaches packet, which will take the place of a meeting.

Venues — the varsity division will compete at Southern Volleyball Center; the JV division will compete at Endurance Academy in Johns Creek, GA (7340 McGinnis Ferry Road – NOT the Lilburn location).
SVC and Endurance 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.
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.
Children under 10 are admitted free. All others will need to pay a $5/person entrance fee.
Parking at Endurance Academy is plentiful and obvious. There should also be sufficient parking at SVC 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.
