Welcome and thank you for considering taking part in the 10th Annual Monument City Classic Girls Volleyball Tournament presented by Union First Market Bank. As the largest community bank based solely in Virginia, Union First Market Bank actively supports efforts to make our communities vibrant.
Giving back to the community is another reason that makes us ask, "is it so wrong to love your bank?"
The tournament will be held January 18 - 20, 2014 in the the Greater Richmond Convention Center and the Richmond Volleyball Club. All Club and Open teams will compete at the GRCC while the Select teams will compete at RVC. Spectator addmission in the convention center will be $20 for the event or $10 per day.
We will offer Open Divisions for the 14's - 18's, Club Divisions for the 12's - 17's, and new for this year a Select Division for the 14's - 17's.

Our inaugural girl's event in 2005 saw 72 teams competing on 20 courts. The tournament hosted single age groups
for 18/17/16/15/14 and under teams on a first come first served basis all in the convention center. The 2006 event saw 124 teams competing on 22 courts in the convention center. We once again hosted single age groups that included Open and Club Divisions for the 16's and 18's. The tournament filled well ahead of the entry deadline. Last year 280 teams competed over the holiday weekend with over 370 teams trying to enter. This year we expect to accept 256 teams in to the Open / Club event, and 64 teams in the Select event. Early registration is highly recommended.
The Monument City Classic is well attended by college coaches. To see a list of the 2012 attendees please click here.
We will utilize Advance Event Systems for the online registration. Teams are accepted on a "first paid, first accepted basis." Teams living outside a 50 mile radius must stay in our hotel block. The deadline for entries is December 12, 2013, but could close earlier if divisions fill.
To complete the entry process we must receive proper payment, a signed tournament entry form, and confirmation from EM2 that hotel reservations have been made. The entry fee is $625 for the Open / Club divisions and $550 for the Select division. Each team
will be guaranteed seven matches (or game equivalent).
