National Tournament Schedule

2018 Tournament Schedule  
Updated 11/11  

This is a tentative schedule. Please check back for updates or changes.  

Our National Elite schedule is has been designed for our teams and athletes to gain exposure to college recruiters. This year we will attend some of the most competitive tournaments around.  Top names include: Monument City, Queen City Classic, Shamrock Festival, Big South National Qualifier, AAU Nationals, and/or USA Junior National Championships. 

This is a schedule of  tournaments for which we plan to submit entries. Tournament scheduling, however, is a complex process. We apply online for all tournaments listed, and then we begin submitting our forms and fees. Please remain flexible with all dates and check back regularly for any revisions.  This is a reminder that club volleyball is a commitment that affects the team, the club, and other parents and players. To protect the interest of all stakeholders, SC Midlands has strict policies regarding tournament attendance.  We require you to attend all tournaments on your schedule.   Failure to attend any tournament with proper documentation at tryouts will be unacceptable and unexcused.
