Cap Classic

!! Capitol Hill Classic is a High Demand tournament that each year it is difficult to get selected to attend this tournament due to the high volume. MB Volleyball will do our best on registration to get our teams in, but it’s not guaranteed. If we do not get in we will select another tournament to make up for this event.

Here are some important things that you need to know about the CHC:
Please remind your players that this tournament is in a very large building in the middle of a city. We have two simple rules that the players should follow at all times:
  1. Players should always travel in groups of two or more.
  2. Players should never leave the building without their parent or responsible adult.
The Washington Convention Center and the Capitol Hill Classic rules say that you may not bring:
  1. Personal Seats and chairs
  2. Coolers
  3. Personal transportation devices (i.e. hoverboards skateboards, etc.)
  4. Oversized bags or luggage
  5. Outside food
  6. Weapons of any type
  7. All tobacco products
  8. Alcoholic beverages
  9. Loud noise makers
  10. Balloons
  11. Other items as determined by the staff
There are lots of food stands and other vendors selling all kinds of shirts and volleyball related items.  There are also food vendors throughout the building.
You should be sure to bring:
  1. Money for shopping and food.
  2. Water bottle.
  3. Small snacks that fit the backpack.
  4. All uniforms.
  5. Whistle for down refs.
Outside food is not permitted and there is no time to leave the building for a meal, so buying food is a necessity.  Around meal times, the lines for food can be very long, so some recommendations are:
  1. Scout out the food stands early so you know what is available and what you want to get in advance.
  2. Have a parent go buy food BEFORE the players rest break begins.  A rest break may seem like a long time, but it is not enough time to look around, wait in line, buy food, eat, and be ready to play the next match.
