Volley by the James Girls Volleyball Tournament
(formerly called Monument City Classic)
Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend
Volley by the James is a “Stay and Play” Event held in Richmond, Virginia
Welcome and thank you for considering taking part in the 17th Annual Volley by the James (formerly Monument City Classic) Girls Volleyball Tournament. Last year we had 346 teams compete over the holiday weekend. This year under the governor’s present COVID-19 orders we can only accept 198 teams and there will be no spectators permitted (please see admissions page for information on live streaming). We will have sixteen courts in the convention center and four in each of the RVC facilities. We will make adjustments if there are any changes to the present restrictions. Early registration is highly recommended.
Registration opens on November 1, 2020, and rosters are not required to enter. Pools will be posted the week of the tournament on the home page of Sportwrench.
We will offer Open Divisions for the 14’s – 18’s and Club divisions for the 12’s – 18’s. There will be twenty-four teams accepted in 13’s – 18’s Club and nine teams accepted in the 12’s Club and 14’s-18’s Open divisions.
Because of the present restrictions, it is doubtful that any changes of division size can be adjusted.
Format for Volley by the James will be wave play. For divisions that are full, matches will play a best of three to 25 with any third games to 15. Full Schedules can be found at www.Sportwrench.com
