COVID-19 UPDATE

We have every intention of giving teams a chance to play volleyball this summer and do not plan to cancel the Festival. Our #1 priority is the health and safety of our athletes and attendees. Should the event get cancelled, all paid team registration fees will be promptly refunded. We continue to closely monitor the situation through US CDC, the City of Phoenix, our Phoenix hotel partners, the Phoenix Convention Center, Visit Phoenix and the national office of the AAU. Below are helpful links for updates.

2020 PLAYING SCHEDULE

The most current playing schedule and results will be live on AES. Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19 and our desire to provide a safe playing environment, there will be 8 total days of competition with half the Age Divisions playing the first 4 days followed by the other Age Divisions over the last 4 days.

Competition days for each Age Division will be announced by June 1. Additional format changes are being considered to minimize the number of teams in the gym and on a single courts. Teams will play at least 2 matches each day.

Baller TV is the Official Livestream partner of Festival Sports. EVERY court at will be streamed June 25 - July 2, 2020 in addition to the MarKi Player Showcase June 24. Baller TV monthly or yearly members have full access to live and archived Volleyball Festival matches.
