New for 2017 – Varsity, JV Kick-off Klassik – 8/19/17

We have 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, we expect that this new event will provide coaches an important barometer of where their team stands and what they need to work on.

Registration – Simply download the embedded high-school-registration-form-2017 and follow the instructions contained thereon.  We have been pleasantly surprised by the demand for this event, s we’re procured an additional gym –  and we are consequently able to accept up to 16 Varsity teams and 12 JV teams into this event.  As of mid July we have two slots available in the varsity division and one available in JV

Schedule – Doors will open at 7:00 a.m.; competition commences at 8:00 a.m. sharp. We expect the final match to conclude around 5 p.m.  The competition schedule will be posted about a week prior to the tournament.

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.  The coaches packet will be posted and downloadable on this website if you would like to review it in advance:

Venues — the varsity division will compete at Southern Volleyball Center; the venue for the JV division will be announced after it has been finalized.

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.

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 two overflow alternatives in the event that ours is full — across Hembree Road in the Alpharetta Public Works Building, or the building immediately south of SVC – in the Endochoice lot.  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.
