It’s that time of the year in the commonwealth, big tournament season.

To kick it all off, Richmond Volleyball Club will be hosting the 17th annual Volley by the James, formerly known as Monument City Classic, over the Martin Luther King Holiday Weekend. This has been the premiere volleyball event in Central Virginia for almost 20 years. This season, the event will be housed in three venues this season: the Greater Richmond Convention Center and the two Richmond Volleyball Club facilities at Byrdhill and Stonebridge. Ages groups from 12 and under to 18 open will be competing this weekend. The tournament will host 174 teams in 2021 from Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. Last year’s event hosted a whopping 346 teams.  The three-day event will have pool play and challenge brackets Saturday and Sunday and will culminate with the playoffs and championships on Monday. Only uniformed players and rostered staff will be allowed into the facility due to Covid concerns. Live streaming will be available thru BallerTV https://www.ballertv.com/events/monument-classic
