mark your calendars for the MLK 2014 Volleyball Tournament!
January 25-26, 2014 at the Memphis Cook Convention Center.
The MLK 2014 Volleyball Tournament is a great opportunity to recruit
new athletes from all over the Southeast. Last year we had teams
from 8 different states, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi,
Louisiana, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Missouri. Last year the MLK Tournament
was a sold out event that brought all teams, to one central venue,
the Memphis Cook Convention Center. This year, we are increasing
the number of courts to 28, which means we will also be
increasing the number of teams we allow into the tournament.
We understand how time consuming the recruiting process can be,
so Memphis Metro would like for you to take advantage of this tournament
and come watch highly sought after recruits and some of the best
players in the Southeast. Memphis Metro will make your recruiting
process easy, by providing you with information on all of the teams
and athletes through the AES. College coaches can access players information via internet or smart phones. Here is the link http://www.aes-scoutrecruit.com
While on your recruiting visit, not only will you have the opportunity
to watch great athletes, but you will also be able to stay in one
of the luxury Memphis downtown hotels like The Marriott, The Crowne
Plaza, or the ever famous, Peabody Hotel, just to name a few. You
will be able to visit Beale Street, see the Memphis Grizzlies take
on the New Orleans Hornets at the FedEx Form, and eat some of Rendezvous’
ever famous ribs.
Please contact, Coach Jitka Okolicany if
you will be coming to the tournament. We look forward to seeing
For all of your hotel needs, please contact Katie Hybnerova, the
