The Crown Tournament Info

Check-in 8:00am each day

The Crown Tournament is held on the last weekend in July each summer at Gibson Road Soccer Complex. This is definitely a tournament you don’t want to miss!  Compete to win cash and prizes. At the hottest tournament of the summer, over 350 teams will come together in Columbia for food, fun, competition, fellowship and some tasty suds!

***The Crown Tournament is hosted by an all volunteer crew from the non profit Columbia Volleyball Club as a fundraiser in order to promote the sport of volleyball in the midlands area and around the state. Make sure to visit the merch tent to support this worthy cause!

Tournament Ball for the Crown is Wilson

AVP Rules including block is a touch!

Please show courtesy to others by not sandbagging. Sandbagging does not make you more skilled as a team/player.

Division Guidelines: NO SANDBAGGING!!

One of the most commons complaints we get from our participants is the fact that sandbagging is becoming more blatantly obvious at our tournaments. Teams are now using the excuse that they’re “only playing down because everyone else is.” this is not a legitimate excuse!

If the CVC pool monitor for you division determines your team is obviously sandbagging, your team can only continue in pool play, but you MUST forfeit the playoffs- nonrefundable.

These guidelines below are what we will be using to help us make this determination for each team:
