Mizuno Capitol Hill Volleyball Classic
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
The 11th annual Mizuno Capitol Hill Volleyball Classic returns to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in 2017. The Classic is a qualifier style volleyball tournament that provides an elite and competitive opportunity for over 950 USAV junior girls’ volleyball teams. With over 14,000 athletes and coaches, plus 89,000 total attendees, The Classic is the largest girls’ volleyball club tournament in the country on Presidents' Day weekend and one of the largest single weekend volleyball tournaments nationwide. In its 11th year of operation, the tournament will host 3,600 matches on 122 courts, and will have multiple sponsorship categories in its Marketplace.
In addition to the tournament, The Classic is partnering with PrepVolleyball.com to offer the inaugural PrepVolleyball.com Unsigned Showcase for athletes in the 2017-2020 classes. The Unsigned Showcase provides an opportunity for Capitol Hill Classic participants to showcase their talents in front of dozens (if not hundreds) or college coaches in an intimate and low-impact environment on Friday evening before The Classic begins.
To celebrate the tournament’s 11th anniversary, The Classic will partner with Destination DC and the American Experience Foundation to host the second Destination DC Capitol Hill Volleyball Member Tournament, which provides 250 Destination DC members (hotels, attractions, restaurants, tour guides and operators, DMCs, and other tourism and convention related service partners) the opportunity to celebrate the success of The Classic through friendly competition with hospitality industry colleagues.
The Destination is just the beginning
