Please 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 you there!

For all of your hotel needs, please contact Katie Hybnerova, the Marketing Director for Memphis Metro. She will offer you the best rates for the downtown hotels and will ensure that your reservation process is quick and hassle free.
