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.

Food is not allowed inside buildings.  


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.
