Welcome to Mid-Atlantic Volleyball


Our intention 30 years ago was to play some ball and promote volleyball so that others would learn to love the sport as we did. The obvious way to do this was to teach volleyball and host tournaments, allowing new and veteran players to put their skills to practice. We enthusiastically keep at it today. Our goal is to bring volleyball to you for as long as our participants attend our tournaments and clinics. We would like to expand our services to Junior, Senior and novice players by adding relevant divisions to our tournaments. Our instructional clinics already have sections for most skill levels. Please use this site to keep informed about our events and offerings. We have simplified it so that information can be one or two clicks away. If registering for one of our events please look through our Tournaments page for details. Also, we recommend you take a look at the Rules & Regs and Policy sections. We encourage you to send us feedback (use the Contact form) and we will always try to provide a safe, sane and fun volleyball environment.

Tournament Tips

Check-in is from 7:45 to 8:30AM.

Play starts at 9:00 AM.

Please plan on being at the tourney until dusk.

All players must be present to sign the waiver at the time of check-in.

Tournament format: Pool play with the top two teams advancing to playoffs for divisions with more than one net.

No playoffs for divisions with only one net.

Bring your own ball

Bring plenty of food and drinks (water or sports drinks).

Sunscreen is a must.

Chairs and blankets can make in-between match time more comfy and umbrellas, tents or canopies can shield you from the hot sun.
