Tournament Morning - Team Check-In

Team Check-in will be Saturday & Sunday mornings, between 7:30-8:30am - at Championship Tent.  Only after all the teams of a division are checked in, will schedules be released (to accommodate any late additions, or last minute drops) and play will begin.  Check-in will involve:

  1. Payment of any entry fees
  2. Filling out a Liability Waiver if NOT a Current Gateway Region Member

Teams will not be considered “checked-in” until entry fee is paid, AND non-members on your team have filled out the Liability Waiver.  Again, pool play schedules will not be released until 8:30am, and all teams of a division are checked in.  If there are any late additions or last minute drops, please allow some time to re-do and re-seed the pools.

WHERE IS IT?

-We will be returning to The Kirkwood Fields this summer of 2017! The Kirkwood Fields are located just east of the Kirkwood Athletic Association, off Marshall and Big Bend Rd near the Meramec River (2377 Marshall Rd)

  • From the north, head south on I-270 and exit at Big Bend Rd and take a left heading east on Big Bend Rd.  Take a right on Marshall Rd, and after about a mile, the Fields will be on your right. 
  • From the south, head north on 1-270 and take exit 5A onto MO-366 E/Watson Rd.  At the first stoplight, take a left on Geyer Rd. and follow it for a mile, then take a left on Big Bend Rd for about a mile, then take a left on Marshall Rd. Follow Marshall Rd for about a mile, the Fields will be on your right.

Entry Forms:

Will be posted when Registration Opens in May

Teams may register up until the morning of the Tournament. We do try and accommodate teams that sign-up the morning of the Tournament - but cannot gaurantee entry due to limited space. Please email Linus at shyu@gatewayvb.org if you have any questions.

TOURNEY FORMAT

Spikin' It consists of pool play to determine which teams will qualify for divisional playoffs. Teams play between 3 and 8 sets in pool play and a minimum of two teams from each pool advance to the playoffs - but we will try to take as many as possible.

In the 4 player divisions, teams may roster additional players for a fee. In coed divisions, at least half of the players on the court must be female at all times.
