Latest Event Updates
Greetings MAPL Raleigh and Battle of the Bros Teams,
We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend in Raleigh! 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.
Pools are Up!
First round pools have been released in AES. You can access them HERE.
The Black and Blue divisions of MAPL and the Battle of the Bros will be played exclusively at the Raleigh Convention Center, the Red division of MAPL will be played exclusively at Triangle Volleyball Club. Doors will open at both facilities at 7 AM. Don’t forget – Daylight Savings Time Begins on Sunday, March 11th at 2:00 AM – don’t forget to set your clocks ahead 1 hour!
Late rosters and changes will be accepted until March 9, 2018. Note however, delaying roster completion will mean emails containing tournament information will only be received by the club director listed in AES.
