Latest Event Updates
We are looking forward to hosting your team(s) in Raleigh, NC for the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Power League – Raleigh tournament. This is a long email but please take the time to review all information below – it contains important tournament updates and event information. Event info can also be found on the Triangle Volleyball-MAPL Raleigh webpage HERE.
*Note: this email is being directed through AES to club directors, team representatives, and coaches. HOWEVER, if your tournament team roster is not updated, YOU are likely the ONLY PERSON RECEIVING THIS EMAIL. Make sure your rosters are complete and that you forward this email to all necessary parties.
Tournament Divisions Update
Playing divisions have been finalized for all teams based on results to date. Any team that was moved into another division will receive an email through Advanced Event Systems notifying them of the change. A full list of participating teams and their divisions can be found HERE.
The Black and Blue divisions will be played at the Raleigh Convention Center; the Red division will be played at Triangle Volleyball Club. Teams will play at one location throughout the entire weekend.
Rosters must be entered into Advanced Event Systems by March 4, 2017. Late rosters will be accepted until March 10, 2017. Note however, delaying roster completion will mean tournament information will only be received by the club director listed in AES.
All coaches listed on a roster will receive wristbands for free entry into the tournament. Wristbands will only be given to coaching staff [maximum of 3] listed on rosters that are Impact Certified. Team Representative and Chaperones do NOT receive free wristbands.
NOTE: If you are a club director that is not listed on a roster, please email us at email@example.com and we will add you to a VIP list to receive free tournament entry.
