Hotel Information:  

Have questions or need help, contact Sheila at or 

We have negotiated with local hotels discounted rates. Click here for hotel options and rates. 

This event is not a stay to play, but we encourage all teams to please utilize the numerous hotels options.  We work closely with Rock Hill Visitors Center, who provides us with the hotels that volleyball families should consider (Quality hotels).  Due to the volume of business we are bringing to Rock Hill, rates should be lower than found anywhere.  

If your team goes outside our block, we only ask you provide us a hotel form, so we can provide to City of Rock Hill, which shows the city our events bring economic impact dollars to the city.  This helps us acquire the facility over other sports who seek the facility.

Athletic Trainers/First Aid

There will be an athletic trainer on-site throughout the tournament to provide pre-game taping and injury care for players. Ice will be available for post-game care and injuries.

Southern Classic Tradition:

For over 20 years now, teams exchange gifts at beginning of matches. Gifts can be anything (candy, pencil, hair bow, CD, something special from your area, etc). Plan on 10 per team and exchanges with teams in pool play only.  For pool play most teams will play 7 teams, so about 70-80 small gifts. 

Of course, this is optional. 

Facility Parking:

Parking will be available for $5 per day.  This will be available for purchase in advance.  See document above for details.
